ad-ver-teasing

The black art of convincing Clint or Ciara  to consume these days has become so easy that creativity is not required. I would guess that a majority of the buyers of the Renault Clio since it emergence 15 years ago have been women.  The denser male would be hoping … Continue reading

Woe men for womens wiles

This conversation between Monica Lewinsky and Linda Tripp would do nothing to disprove the view (of some) that ladies are a law unto themselves. Everyone knows the story about BJ. Clinton and Monica.  The main issue of abuse and lies … Continue reading

Oh, Peggy, my Pa-he-ggy Sue

The thought had passed my mind to re-enact a slice of ‘Five Easy Pieces’. “I’d like an omelet, plain, and a chicken salad sandwich on wheat toast, no mayonnaise, no butter, no lettuce. And a cup of coffee.” Waitress:    chicken … Continue reading

Who said using ‘gate’ as a suffix for some minor intrigue……

is a useful journalistic device?  It gets up my nose!   See! Could all who have done so or do or will continue to do so, jump off a high bridge.  There are many to choose from over the Potomac.

Professional expertise?

So what’s your opinion on kissing? A  software specialist’s view might be  “A kiss is a few bits of love compiled into a byte.” A mathematician  might say  “A kiss is two divided by nothing.” A physicist might comment “A kiss is a contraction … Continue reading

A Foreign Eye Sees Clearly……

Our Oirish rogues gallery of usual suspects or those who went before our current shower.  Interesting insight …….   The first thing you notice when you watch the Irish Parliament at work is that the politicians say everything twice, once in … Continue reading

A lot of Russian around…..

here in 1968.    Now a Warsaw Pact tank track painted in peaceful lilac lie around for the curious visitor.    Art out-stallation and great recycling. Or is it a mulberry colour?   Historically more accurate, Soviet Russia had their Soviet satellite armies invaded. I was … Continue reading

Don’t do it!

Shooting dangerous bipedal idiots is not legal?  What? I listen to the National airways for a few minutes every month by podcast.  It’s a useful device to experience torture in small packets.

     From the above paradigm -this is ‘TN’ time                                 I used to write letters of a laudatory nature to moderately established figures in Ireland if by chance they had momentarily excelled in some endeavour.  Yes! I  do positivity as well.  … Continue reading

An AIB Global accountant’s view of Irish economy pre-bust is just……wrong! http://www.accountancyireland.ie/Archive/2006/February-2006/Irelands-Economy—-Outlook-Bright-for-2006/ Commiseration to the individual. None of us are infallible  Yet it ‘beggs’ the question-Who is working for whom?  . A plethora of very fallible personalities over the last … Continue reading
