I had no idea what to expect and was thinking that Santiago de Chile would be filthy and bedraggled!! well it was spotless, beautiful, full of smart shops, restaurants, hotels and well too expensive for us!! I know there probably are poorer ghettos and miserable areas but we travelled for miles around the city and it was impressive. The madly expensive trip to Patagonia was unreal and it will take me a long time to assimilate all I saw and experienced. Up and down the Andes, in and out of vineyards, on about four rocky boats! all the time trying to understand Spanish ( not a word). We met a huge gang of ex pat irish and they are all doing very well and the irish dancing classes run by Matt Mulvey are inspirational. None of your wigs and make up just beautiful girls dancing all the old dances in the good old fashioned way. Brought a tear to my eye. Oh, of course it was tooooo hot about 40 degrees...no one goes out in it so I am as white as when I left Ireland. The ozone layer is very thin and you burn up without 100 factor cream!

This is one (mainly) for the ladies.

Would you ever consider attaching your address to your house keys?
Of course not. That would be daft, wouldn't it? Personal security implications and all that.
And yet . . .
I'm betting the vast marjority of you do exactly that and probably don't realise it.
How is this so?

Ha I'd say its because the keys are in the famous "handbag" which has every concievable piece of identification known to man!!!

Yes Rocker
But I'm thinking of a particular piece of information that most of us have and never give it much thought.

Yes ! Our so called "loyalty cards" from various stores as in Tesco, Super Valu etc etc, wasn't that how they connected keys found in Roundwood with Elaine O'Hara murdered by Dwyer.
