I received a letter yesterday from a strange body namely ESB networks, on further reading I find out that they are the people responsible for the running of the electrical supply to domestic and business premises in the country of Ireland. The letter explains how ESB Networks are rolling out […]
The Road To Morocco – My Diary, Part 4.
Up at the crack of sparrow fart to begin Day 5 of this journey, it was 6.00am but now it is 7.00am on a bright, bright March morning. The sun is beating down but the breeze off the Atlas Mountains suggests a cool 14C. Today should be good we have […]
A Victory For Right Over Wrong.
I think it was in 2011 when the now discredited Fine Gael/Labour coalition government of Ireland in trying to raise some much needed capital decided to levy a Household Charge of €100 on all properties in Ireland.

Smart Meters A Step Too Far – Part 3
Well would you Adam and Eve it, instead of a visit from Irish Water, this morning I received a visit from the bold Garda Siocana. A very nice chap as they have all been who have knocked at my door. He said he had received a complaint from a man […]
A Trip To Cork
Well I am back online after suffering an attack last Thursday and me only discovering it on Friday night and these computer anoraks who only work five days a week not getting into gear until Monday meant I was bereft for five days. It is like having your legs cut […]
Beware Of The Men/Women In Suits Especially Lawyers And The RBS
