Frank , Along time ago when our Gaffer had not shown up for work , I took it upon myself to ware his white coat ,and tried to get the men to get off their arses and try and catch up with our work schedule ,the manager as it happened came into the workshop at this time and seen me wearing the coat and asked me if I would continue as assistant Foreman until the real one got back he was ill , so for 6 months I did just that ,but then was asked by my Boss if I would like to do it on a More permanent bases  I said I would think about it and then he said something very strange , would I have the ability to sack someone, I said no and he said don't go for the job , I have not regretted that decision I retired happy unlike a lot of my fellow workers who went on the management trail .

GG , My arn't we living in a caring world if your relative had been released into her own care she would be dead by the end of the weekend and just another statistic of our/your health service.

She is lucky to have people around her who care about her well being .

Our two country's are very much alike in the treatment of our elderly citizens in that we will not allow euthanasia but will turn a blind eye to so many people living on their own ,I wonder how many old people will be found dead after this very cold winter has ended ,

kindest regards Derek

Cilmeri, Hi, when you are digging out your border soil may i suggest that you double dig ,what I mean is take out the first spades depth and fork over the sub soil then incorporate well rotted compost of vegetable waste and back fill with the top soil you removed you will find that over time your border will become more fertile

Hi ,At every election be it General or local I put in my front window a large poster of one " C,J, Haughy " one time leader of Fianna Fail  and I was never bothered by F/F Hacks but sometimes F/G hacks would knock on my door (ex blue shirts ) although these days they try and distance themselves from that time in history but I do like to remind them and be  entertained  . I do vote every time and as a card carrying member of Unite formally the AEEU I vote Labour it is my believe that anyone who did work or who is still in work is in someway working class and should not vote for Right wing or borderline conservative ,as is what happened  today in County Meath  the daughter of a T,D who died last Christmas was elected as a new T,D. people have very short memories  I am afraid Nepotism is still alive and well in this Country .God help us.

I was really miffed to find in my missives that I cannot keep bees on my property (nor rabbits, nor chickens) despite being out in the countryside. Some sad lawyer who's been stung in the past???
Thanks for the tip on Morrisons insect boxes. I've added that to the shopping list!



ps To all other posters I am sorry for the use of capital letters but this person keeps saying the

sane shite
