Had our first trip to the magical capital of Bohemia this week.Fantastic!Great beer, fabulous architecture and amazing music. A word of warning though; czech food is best left to the czech's. Stick to one of the many good italian , french or tex-mex restaurants.We highly recommend this city.

Go Zizou Go!!

Enjoyed the competition, pity about the Italians. Ronaldo definitely gets a lifetime achievement award from me. Things looking good for the dubs too! This could be our year.

Is it just me or has anybody else noticed a worrying increase in the frequency of radio debates on the pros and cons of nuclear power? Maybe I'm just being paranoid but I would welcome any comments.

Sorry for the few months silence folks but here is the news in brief:-

Progress on the house - flying along at the speed of a snail on valium. On the positive front, at least our floor is poured now. Since the last post, the Young Family have embarked on a venture in Bulgarian Real Estate. Spent a week there in June. Really enjoyed it. Included are some photos of the holiday and the development in progress. See ye all soon.

I overlooked some rather important news in my last post. Last week our van was broken into TWICE! Yes twice! Between both robberies ALL of our power tools were taken. Most of them were Hilti's. Our overnight bags likewise. Clothes, razors(new), toiletries and, tragically, my copy of DBC Pierre's new book.
All this personal shit has a fraction of the value of the drills but is somehow more upsetting. This all happened more than a week ago but I am still ENRAGED!!! Anybody out there considering buying stolen tools-think twice.It could be you.I hope these fuckers get PILES!!

Well dear readers,I have been remiss.Weeks of info to impart, so I shall be brief. Our exchange student from France has been and gone. He had a fine old time. We brought him to the Dublin parade where we all wore funny hats and froze our nuts off.(Incidentaly, it was the first time the kids had been to the BIG PARADE!)
The great Knocknalour construction project has been frustratingly stop- start over the last while. Not out of the ground yet.My mate Declan's 40th was a quiet but enjoyable affair. (Another one grows the grey.) Attending another 40th on friday.This I suspect will be anything but. ( Quiet not enjoyable!)
What about that smart card fiasco? Nine million down the plughole and counting. It beggars belief! I can%

Astounding news!Blocks have actually been laid and all is right in the world.Couple this with the fact that I played golf today and I could almost die happy.I say almost because played today like a blind camel.
And so to gun crime.Or rather the media furore over 'gun crime'.In this little hooplah I must reluctantly absolve the politicians of all responsibility.The problem lies with the judges.Bluntly speaking they are morons.
I have personally witnessed judges handing out suspended sentences to lowlives on their twentieth offences.Need I say more.Hang 'em high.
What a match on wednesday.I am not an arsenal fan but Henri could be the best footballer I have ever seen.PLEASE GOD LET THE BOYS IN GREEN WIN TOMORROW.

Gggnnaaaahh!!!I am now three weeks waiting for my bricklayers to arrive.My patience is now completely transparent and could not resist an attempt by a terminallt ill flea to break through it's meagre defensive lines.
It's not just the complete lack of actual building going on.It's the lies.Wait up....I have just been informed that they are coming tomorrow!By means of an actual phone conversation.How weird is that?I have been cut short in mid rant.Sweetness and light....sweetness and light......sweetness and light.................
