Hate

Hate is such an evil thing.
Strapping a bomb to your child and sending them into a crowded market to maim and kill other people is so evil that it is outside understanding.

Yet not long ago our IRA were bombing innocent people on the British mainland.

Killing innocent children is the lowest of the low.
My God this is not right on any level.

Evil breeds evil

Naked in Dublin


Support for a wind turbine

Great name for a cafe, wrong place Its gone

Department of education



A few weeks ago a woman was spotted walking naked through the streets of Dublin.
Click here to read more and then have a think.
A woman having a complete mental breakdown, CCTV footage collected by the police put up on social media. I understand that she was beaten and assaulted as she was being taken away.
She was sectioned and had mental as well as addiction problems.
Guess what ?
That footage of her arrest was put up as well.

Have people lost all sense of what is right or completely wrong?.

The poor girl was sectioned under the mental health act and killed herself a few days later after her release.
They said that she was so disturbed that they could not deal with her case.
Wow...That is really bad news.

The Garda concerned denies any wrong doing.

Police need more training in how to deal with mental health issues.
Properly trained negotiators need to be around and available to help the people who are standing on the ledge.

Prince Charles


 

 


















A really old Volks and Holland


This morning the traffic was very bad, so bad that I gave up and came home.
Prince Charles and Camilla are in Dublin,the weather is great for it too.

There used to be  joke that Britain would join the € when Charles would be king
Which would be never.

Last Sunday I went from Northwood near the airport to Dublin Zoo.
When we arrived there I said to my passenger "Say hello to my relations in there"
Do you mean the monkeys? he said.
"If a cleric overheard you saying that in my country you would be executed by sword"
Lucky I didn't ask him if he was visiting his own relatives.
Saudi Arabia is ruled by a very strict clerical sect.
A woman can be arrested for driving a car, you are stoned to death for committing adultery.
Two Dublin woman talking at the bus stop.
"Did ya hear that you can be stoned to death for committing adultery?"

"Be Jases  if they brought that in here we'd run out of stones,"



Bob Dylan is here tonight so business is good.

A special weekend

This weekend thousands of people will run from the darkness into the light.
Have a click here and join them.
Suaside  is a waste of a life for sure.
If the person who killed themselves reflected for an instant how it would effect the ones left behind they would never ever end their own flives.

On a lighter note if you are killing yourself you are probably killing the wrong person.

A friend comes to you with the books and CDs he borrowed..A big danger sign..
A fone call from someone about how sorry they were that they were so bad to you.
They are saying goodby. Don't miss it.

You have to embrace the person on the ledge.
"Things will get better, just talk to me for a few minutes"

I often think of an American man who killed himself in Blancerstown after getting out of my taxi.
He had lost his job and was adrift, I didn't see the danger.
A guy who once implored me to go for lunch with him because he wanted to say goodby.
He killed himself an hour later. A beautiful wife a fantastic job,the world at his feet.
I found out about his death two weeks later.
It transpired that he admired my own free spirit, I would go my own way and tell the rest to fuck off.

His death woke me up to the simple signs I now listen out for danger.
He was a really great person, wouldn't hurt a fly.

So boys and girls. 
Listen out for clues.
Daddy I want to tell you something.
John can you help me with something?
Jim would you like to walk the dog with me?

Little things can mean a lot

Magic IBM ring 85 convention

 I took last May day off to attend a magic convention in Dundalk Co.Louth Marc Paul was the main guest.
Remember this
"The only way to have more fun than through magic is to take your clothes off"

 

We nearly lost Dublins most iconic taxi driver to Bowell cancer a few weeks ago.
After an operation and a few weeks rest he is now back in the saddle.
This video was made in  2009 and they say that he was 76 then, so if I am correct he is now 94 !!!
One of the girls in the video has the most fantastic laugh.

Jonny works like no other person to make the taxi drivers special day out the success that it is.
