Theres no point in trying to choke the foxes, Strum. They are far too smart ... its easier to shoot them like they do in Arklow. :o

Nah we leave the foxes alone in Greystones, we only shoot birdies. ;)

Denis, is there any truth in a story I heard last night about your Ladies telling a certain young tour player who was home on a break, that he could not practice during 'their' day ........ classic golf club behaviour, seems like shooting yourself in the foot if true :oops:

Went for a walk down the East pier at around 8 o'clock this evening, to try and spot the Super Duper Moon. Passing the weather station the temperature gauge read 17.6 degrees C, in mid November. There were people strolling about in their t shirts, positively balmy it was, in mid November, never heard the likes of it. By the way, not a sign of that big old Moon, it was hiding behind the clouds.

We were lucky to get a glimpse of the moonrise just coming out of the sea roaring red but immediatly the clouds covered it. Drat....I'll be a bit too old to appreciate the next one.

Incidentally - I suspect many of the pics that have been published are benefiting from the software that dare not speak its name.

I've seen many a pic of far-spread landmarks but with the moon presenting the same orientation. Although the same side of the moon faces the earth all the time, viewers around the globe should be seeing that face in different rotations. e.g. An Aussie should see what we see but upside down . The Tycho Crater with its distinctive spokes at (Irish) 5-o-clock is a giveaway. Yet I've seen one "Irish" photo on a reputable photographic site showing a moon who's orientation could only have been snapped somewhere near the Equator.

That book "men are from Mars and women are from Venus" says it all. Would you believe I have never queried what the Moon should look like and really only take a glance at it at best. Imagine brainy boxes like you Micheál knowing that "Aussies would see what we see but, upside down" Hats off to you M wuu wuu ...I can truly say "I know nuttin!!!"....and query less.

I'm now busy googling Tycho Crater !

I don't think we over here in the Boro realize just how great our weather is compared to most of the midlands and West. We really live a charmed life. I am sitting here with the sun shining in the window, the sea sparkling and I just spoke with relations in the country and they can't see out the house with the freezing fog. I think there is some truth in the saying "God looks after his own"....where is the tongue in cheek smiley :lol: :lol:

If this dry weather doesn't end soon I'll be wrecked. Started on Thursday to cut back the overgrown garden and am now nearly dead. Third day at it, in for a coffee at the moment. ;) ;)

No, he's the Mouth from down South in Ingurlund :roll:

The hype that surrounds the weather is crazy, people are stock piling food for an end of days scenario !

It really shows you how much power and influence the media has today.

When they restock their stuff you are all going to have to get a cake called Jessica's Lemon Drizzle Cake in a yellow wrapper....to die for...as me mother would say "youd get up in the middle of the night for it".

Yeah pure madness. I was down in Supervalu this evening, absolutely no bread. You'll find next week that the shelves will be full and there will be nobody to buy the bread,more waste. BangHead

Yep, madness has set in, but then I saw what people were really like during petrol strikes and bread shortages years ago, they would almost kill you to get there first.

Kill ye is right,
I don't know how true this story is but a guy was telling me today of a shopper in a local supermarket who had about 10 loafs of bread in her basket and an elderly man asked her for one but she wasn't feeling too charitable and refused, if true its bad management on the stores behalf there should be a quota on scarse goods.

One welcome impact of the current weather hysteria is the fact that the country is going to run out remaining stocks of "inches". Consumers will be forced to cope with metric terminology from now on.

Any of you know is it true your car insurance doesn't cover you if you have an accident while a code red weather warning has been issued, wouldn't surprise me if some companies have it in the small print. (I have no plan's to drive.)
