    Has the system changed in the last few weeks?
    Was in Benidorm at the start of the month and there was nothing to be filled in for Covid or anything else.
    (was mildly amusing seeing the UK passengers have to go to a separate queue in Alicante airport to show their certs and get random swab tests)

    edit: Googling suggests API is just the passport info you give at check-in. I always use my main passport here so don't know if cards are an issue.
    In general I'd suggest to use paper passport in Spain anyway, the airports are a pain otherwise as you can't use the electronic gates with the card and have to queue with the Brits which can be a pain if you're flight is unlucky enough to co-incide with 3 or 4 easyjets.

        No, sushi and soft drinks was the order of the day. The couple of lads who showed were intimidated away by the girls.

        I just stayed out of the way and paid for stuff, which seems to be the accepted order of fatherhood at such events.

          ... If by some random chance anyone would have 3 spare tickets to the Samhain walk in Marley park today or tomorrow that would be Amazing... They are free tickets but limited, and each ticket is for 6 people, so if you have one and only 3 going, it would be great...

            Ah feck. Didn't realise that and ended up listing passport cards for the flight out and full passports for the way back. Let's see how that works Although electronic gates don't work for under 18s anyway afair.

                        Food is unreal here in Madrid. Everything a hit. Lunch was a few tapas, including deer with truffle on relish, and seared tuna with pistachio and chilli sauce. Each a few euro. They can't seem to take a step wrong.

                            Crazy shit happening in Brazil today. Polls close at 8pm.

                            The federal police had established roadblocks across Brazil in Lula/PT strongholds, particularly the northeast, with over 500 operations confirmed by Globo News. Performing searches on cars and slowing traffic down throughout the region. The electoral court had decreed previously that the federal police were not to perform any kind of measures to interrupt traffic. As well as to ensure a maximum no of buses and free public transport so the electorate could freely vote. Anything to help relieve the big queues to vote in round 1.

                            People called for the director of federal police to be put in front of the electoral court (essentially the supreme court during the election period) to explain what is happening. The Head Supreme/Electoral Court Judge came on TV now to give his update on how the election has been proceeding home and abroad. He said he had received assurances that any traffic measures would be "normal" - eg remove unroadworthy vehicles or speeding fines. He didn't say much else of substance.

                            If the polls were accurate it's gone from a small margin of victory for Lula to now a coinflip at best . It's not quite a full-on coup but more than enough manipulation and interference to tip the balance. Results will come through around 1am but I'm not not optimistic for a Lula win at all.

                                  UTG raises, UTG+1 ships for 25bbs, Murdrum ships for 20bbs and UTG calls.

                                  UTG wins the 3-way all in and UTG+1 gets the cash as they had me outchipped.

                                  Murdrum bubbles.

                                  TBH, I had totally forgotten about that rule which was the worst part.

                                  I did get a phone call on my sad walk to the car to say they’d put me in next year so not all bad.

                                      It was a bad call tbh. Something like AKs & JJ some of the time and QQ+ is probably it so can’t call it a bad beat.

                                                  We'll need it. Up another bit in trip should be ok but the tight track and the heavy ground cut up late in the day are going to be challenging.
                                                  Would be great to get a win out of her but any punting would be highly speculative, will do a small ew double with Jarlath's horse in the other division where we are up against

                                                  I get to tick off a trip to Ballybrit as other than Laytown it's the only racecourse I've not been to even though we had Jennies win there I was away that day.

                                                    Nice effort by Lorcan Tucker in defeat there, making a bad situation into a respectable one. Hopefully puts himself in the shop window for future pro contracts.

                                                                    Why ? Look at the lyrics . A child could have written it. Sineads performance made it the hit. However as a song its moderate . Just my view but i can name 100 better of the time . Including Sineads own stuff .

                                                                    Prince a genius though, just that tume. Probably why he gave it to her.

                                                                                        Another I like you can access from the Military Road near Noel Lemass monument. (Or from Cruagh) There's a trail about 50 metres before the monument heading East. You can access Cruagh from there or hook South after a bit on a narrow trail.
                                                                                        The section from the Military Road to the fence isn't that long but it's my favourite part of it and never met anyone else on that section. Has a nice wilderness feel to it.

                                                                                        ​​​​​​There's another one I like starting near Featherbed forest.
                                                                                        Will take a look at a map and describe it later.

                                                                                        First right after Kilakee viewpoint is a narrow road leading down into the valley Featherbed forest on your right. ..straight down over the bridge then first left for about 1/2 mile or so, another left heading up (Glenmasole area) and keep going straight and you're eventually back to Military road. A few cars now and then but usually quiet enough.
                                                                                        It's not particularly dramatic or anything. Nice views of the valley and you're smack bang in the middle of it.
                                                                                        Got a nice blackberry stash a few months ago as loads of bushes on the side of the road near Featherbed.

While they are not afraid to open Pandora's box by unsealing documents/records that Bolsonaro put away for 100 years or target him with a variety of investigations. There's an incredibly divided country and majority right congress that he now has to work with, along with various state governers. Human instinct would be to go after Bolsonaro and his cronies gung-ho for the way that they targetted and put Lula in jail for spurious charges. The differnence is that Lula is too smart and too focused on improving Brazil to blindly pursue this route.

Though they will likely need to have assumed a big political role in the mean time (Mayor, Governor, Congress etc) and be a more visible voice for the right/opposition.

We had an occupational therapist out the week to check in on my Dad and we were discussing about finally trying to make the move for a bedroom/bathroom downstairs for him. In doing all this work we were also thinking about getting a new kitchen done also, two birds one stone. I'd been in contact with an architect previously about some work and he popped out to the house for a meeting. He reckons what we want to do in the house will probably cost around €100,000 plus VAT.

                                                                                                              A lot of places banks/credit unions will only let you go as high as 100K and 10 years online from their loan calculators. Any help in pointing me in the right direction for what I should/could be looking at? Also what would be a reasonable price to pay for an architect from job start to finish?

Currently live in a house 100% powered by electricity (air-to-water pump, which is great but needs electricity to run), would love to have some kind of stove somewhere simply for redundancy if the electricity goes down! We went to a few gas stove showrooms, the modern ones you would be getting are pretty nice and very efficient compared to the madness of an open fire.

Was watching the results also, you think everything will be fine? In your previous post you said your brother in law just missed the roadblocks.

                                                                                                                    Hope everybody has been good and keeping well?

                                                                                                                    Looking to get some information from the financial wizards and home renovation enthusiast. We had an occupational therapist out the week to check in on my Dad and we were discussing about finally trying to make the move for a bedroom/bathroom downstairs for him. In doing all this work we were also thinking about getting a new kitchen done also, two birds one stone. I'd been in contact with an architect previously about some work and he popped out to the house for a meeting. He reckons what we want to do in the house will probably cost around €100,000 plus VAT.

                                                                                                                    A lot of places banks/credit unions will only let you go as high as 100K and 10 years online from their loan calculators. Any help in pointing me in the right direction for what I should/could be looking at? Also what would be a reasonable price to pay for an architect from job start to finish?
                                                                                                                    I'm no bob the builder, but that seems like an insane amount of money for a bedroom with ensuite and a new kitchen.

                                                                                                                        You'll be 100% fine by then dude, nobody wants the country or F1 to be paralysed by roadblocks. It's mostly disgruntled truckers worried about diesel prices. What pokerhand said above is spot on re covid certs. Just make sure you have your itinerary etc ready and you're there as a guest for the F1 plus holiday. Nothing to worry about tbf. You'll get a new passport stamp and be on your way in no time.

                                                                                                                        Bolsonaro spoke yesterday and said that the roadblock protests were not to continue.... everyone should have freedom of movement and business is suffering.... we can protest peacefully in a different way. Paraphrasing but that's the gist of it. Some hospitals were starting to report low oxygen stores due to supply chain disruption .

                                                                                                                        I assume you're landing at Guarulhos airport. Did you get a transfer sorted or does it need to be organised?

                                                                                                                        If not the options would be to take an uber and expense it. Or get the bus transfer that brings you to the other airport (Congonhas) near your hotel/interlagos. Make sure you have both debit and credit cards on hand btw. Ideally have a visa and mastercard too. They have separate machines for each, lol Brazilian bureaucracy and the odd time play silly buggers. Though revolut will be your best friend (last time I was there it only worked on credit card machine bizarrely). Do keep a few notes of Reals on you just in case. Max €50.

                                                                                                                        I have some notes to email you from the last time we spoke. I'll ping them over later.
