    The Bojo mini series looks like a terrible idea made well

        Wait... you are doing the retrofit after the builders have been and gone

        Will you be pumping walls and replacing windows in the retrofit?

              To be clear, the builder didn't change the external footprint in any way. All his work was about reconfiguring the interior.
              So no real overlap with retrofit.

                Was more picking him up on the distinction between pallette and palate. But you are correct.

                  Except it is going to be moving out for a week or two level disruption all over again.

                            The Ryan Giggs defence is all kinds of special

                            The poem sent to Kate Greville:


                            My darling Kate
                            Unequivocally our love was fate
                            I fell in love with you at first sight
                            I remember coz I was as high as a kite
                            Those beautiful eyes, made me shiver
                            I’m not gonna lie, I think of you, I dream of you
                            Can’t help thinking, pulling you was my greatest ever coo (sic)
                            That stomach, those abs, those pictures you sent
                            So I can keep tabs on you, makes me feel funny down there
                            Especially when you are there and you look up and stare
                            I’m beginning to think you are always right
                            That’s okay it will keep us tight
                            I’m gonna end by saying you are my love, my friend, my soul
                            And most of all you believe in me
                            Which makes me feel as hard as a totem pole

                                  I had the contractor here onsite for 2 hours last week (his crew does ~100 retrofits p.a.) and he said to expect minimal disruption. Like maybe 1 day with no heating.

                                  Will report. Mrs D3 is dithering over picking windows so that's the long lead time. Said to expect 14 weeks from ordering windows to his team being onsite.

                                    Too much money and adulation for men who are educated to primary school standard you mean.

                                      You would wonder what Ferguson is at tarnishing his legacy in this way.

                                      He probably sees it as loyalty but it's basically the same as TDs writing character references for rapist constituents. Not a good look.

                                        The really disturbing part is that it's his legal team putting this out as part of his defence. Anyone could text similar tripe, but they'd keep it to themselves.

                                          In fairness to soccer, it's doing its best to keep the legal eagles in impactful suits. Maybe Kayroo could reposition his practice to only take on Wagatha Christie cases.

                                            Watching 'Grease' again. Still prefer the soundtrack to the movie. Too many old people playing high school kids. Stockard Channing was 34 ffs! At least Olivia NJ didn't look 29, like she could have easily passed for 24.

                                              That old chestnut . If anything their age makes them more authentic. The average 17 year old in the 50s looked 35 .

                                                Would need Kayroo to confirm, but fairly sure you can't refuse (or it's really difficult to) if you are called as a witness.
                                                Completely different to the character witness situation.

                                                          It's a good read, well written and a decent balance between the characters and how they played the markets. Fairly convinced Gross is at the far end of the personality disorder scale! Like ordering the entire trading floor to be silent at all times, wtf.

                                                                            Washington Post? That's a hell of a distance to travel to find a piece that uses the term you agree with.

                                                                            All the English media referred to him as a defence witness.

                                                                            I actually agree with you to an extent, I didn't understand what the purpose of him being there was.
                                                                            But thinking about it I'm not sure how else you are actually supposed to defend a charge of 'controlling and coercive behaviour'.
                                                                            You can't get an alibi or prove mistaken identity etc, so getting a stream of people to swear under oath that you have never behaved that way may be the only way to defend it.

Even if that was €60 a round and you only did it 2/3 times a year it would be a cool way to track progress.

I played two rounds with him, lovely lovely guy. Seems to be going from strength to strength too. He is gonna do some promo stuff with me on the app.

I believe it started off with 8 par 4s in a row but that's changed since 2020. Never played it before then. Starts off 4,4,5,3 now. Also think 1 is in the conversation for best opening tee shot in the country!

                                                                                                      Portmarnock didn't blow me away either but I thought it was excellent and the best conditioned course I've ever played. Have Adare in a couple of months which should top it but never seen anything like it. I understand when people talk about 'the more you play it the more you appreciate it'. I'd say playing it a few times would see it move close to the top of my own list.
                                                                                                      Yes i haven’t played it since they remodelled it, and yes I was 8 PAr 4s in a row which I didn’t like (typo on first). WIll have to try out the new one, you’ve jogged my memory now of an IR article at the time it reopened.

I played two rounds with him, lovely lovely guy. Seems to be going from strength to strength too. He is gonna do some promo stuff with me on the app.
                                                                                                        He seems like such a sound fella with zero bs. An unbelievably good putter of the ball. Love his videos as the distances and shots are very relatable for most amateurs.

                                                                                                        Emmet, how's the golf going these days? Have you been practicing much or doing lessons?

Even if that was €60 a round and you only did it 2/3 times a year it would be a cool way to track progress.
                                                                                                          There’s a guy who splits his time between the Spawell & Tramore who I know rented out one of the Mevo trackers for approx 25-30e to be used at the range.

                                                                                                          If you felt it was something you would use then you could buy one of the Garmin R10’s. I read a while ago that they were quite accurate, set you back around 600e.

Any decent mobile plus the shot tracer app. Add a battery pack and tripod to complete the kit. Obviously you can shoot the video with a decent dedicated camera and edit in the shot info later.

Then go through your routine, collect everything and go again to the next position while keeping pace.

Might not get every shot perfectly, but for relatively low effort you’d pick up most shots rather than painstakingly setting up a camera perfectly for every shot.

Actually, a stand/carry bag would be even easier than a trolley to move position.

That would point in a really consistent direction. Whereas a spider mount (if we’re talking about the same thing) might get knocked about and move a bit.

                                                                                                                      Either bag or trolley would work, just get into the habit of leaving it directly behind you
