I have fond memories of being there. There is also Marconi's station I seem to recall. If you go up the hill at the back there is a memorial to Alcock and Brown. Also well wothing going to the Burren:
 a country where there is not water enough to drown a man, wood enough to hang one nor earth enough to bury one

Clare is certainly worth it: surfing at Lahinch, spot of golf at the Trump Doonbeg, Moher is a horror story.

And the Trump Doolin cave adventure. And Dooli has the best musicians in Ireland.

At first I was afraid, I was petrified
Kept thinking I could never live without you by my side
But then I spent so many nights thinking how you did me wrong
And I grew strong
And I learned how to get along
And so you're back
From outer space
I just walked in to find you here with that sad look upon your face
I should have changed that stupid lock, I should have made you leave your key
If I'd known for just one second you'd be back to bother me
Go on now, go, walk out the door
Just turn around now
'Cause you're not welcome anymore
Weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye
Do you think I'd crumble
Did you think I'd lay down and die?


Oh no, not I, I will survive

For the first time in a long time I had to travel on the underground Monday-Friday, every morning and late afternoon. Initially it was fun, but today I had to close my eyes and imagine that I'm in some nice place :-( Now I need to go to that place to get de-de-pressed.

As long as you don’t pee in the swimming pool. If you were allowed to it would be called a “peel”...

Why do English-speaking countries still use cheques/checks?

It's so primitive and costly.

Tell me about it (not only in English). I believe it's to delay the payment.

Something, recently cold calls end up by sellers getting very aggressive>

Caller: you no doubt have heard that energy prices are going up next year?
Me: how do you know I know; I don't know but carry on.
Caller:We can offer 15% discount
Me: that's what they all say
Caller hangs up.
