A very sad and tragic story, shame on those who are making this family suffer.

At least Jim Shannon is using his influence at Westminster for good things. Putting a motion in to honour Dolly Parton on the 50th anniversary for one of her songs  ::)

This should be in the WTF category.......what an absolute clown, sums up the calibre of politician in this country.  This is like something you would expect the Healy Reas to come out with.

Anyone watched the Luther, The fallen sun yet? Any good?

If you are fan of the TV series you will be disappointed.

I have to say that I think that the Ď future all starsí thing is utter bollox. Seriously what is the point outside of trying to promote Queens

Well the kids put plenty effort into it.

As for Queens promotion, sure whatís wrong with promoting going to college? Very clever to show your worth

I think UU doing something similar but it is for 6th formers, same objective no doubt as Queens.

Your right PMG1 re timing.  I bought a new build town house in a development for 115k around 2006/07 and even today just about wipes its face.  Developer built a similar type of development in the same town with similar house types selling around 160k 12 months later just before things went pear shape.  Rent in this areas is the same so pity those that bought the 160k houses, not alone are they having to prop the mortgage on top of rental income but house would hardly be even worth 160k today.

As long as each property wipes its face that is the main thing,  good tenants are hard to come by.

Watched the Luther movie on Netflix, having been a big fan of the TV show I found it a bit disappointing, a lot of gaps in the story.

So kids that go to Inst BRA Methody Ballymena Academy Bangor Grammar and the other dozen or more Protestant schools donít go to uni?

Both my daughters went to a non catholic school but went to uni as did any of the kids that finished upper 6th as most passed their A levels. So Iím only using their years and results from that school

I worked in a place several years ago, time of the 11 plus, where a lot of my colleagues had kids looking to go to schools such as those highlighted.  They were all paying for private tuition at the time as well to help with the test.  I remember saying to a colleague one day that if their kid failed the 11 plus it was the not the end of the world as they could always go to the local high school.  This was not an option for them as to all intents and purposes if their darling kids ended up going to the local high school they were f@#ked for life as they would end up mixing with the local riff raff.  That is one thing I have always found with Protestants, awful snobbery within.

Surely something not right here, obviously a team playing one if not two grades lower than they should be.

Surely Carrickmore were not that bad a team.

Has anyone any experience with a bulk? Got back into the gym and am thinking about going for one but not to fond of the idea of putting on fat having only recently lost it

Can relate to the highlighted part above, lost a good bit of weight and hence the whole idea of putting weight back on was a headwrecker.

Went with a clean bulk of about 500 calories above maintenance with the aim of putting on 0.5kg / 1lb per week, started in October and by mid February I had put on a stone and a half.  Must have been doing something right as the waist size in terms of trousers did not change but had to start wearing bigger size shirts.  On a bit of a mini cut at the moment eating approx 500 below maintenance, doing ok so far and will see how things are at the end of week 8.

All sows in the one trough with the majority of them not being able to get a job in the real world.  Financially on a personal basis a United Ireland will not be good for the back pocket of all politicians on both sides as well as their hanger ons, In addition 'community worker' gigs will all run out of road.  The politics of the north along within NI is a mini economy which too many people rely on therefore they will all continue to do what is necessary to keep the show on and hence rely on each other, no punch without judy.  I know in the morning if a referendum came out whereby the option was to close Stormount and divert all associated expenditure instead to health, education etc I would vote in favour 100%.

Republican or loyalist it does not matter, a scum bag is a scum bag regardless.  When it comes to the £££ loyalists and republicans do not be long setting aside their principles when it suits them, indeed this has been the case for several years.

Do no harm to keep the Cat 5 in, better looking at it than looking for it.  I got Sky Q installed a few weeks ago and even though we have upgraded the broadband through Openreach Sky are saying that for the main box to 'talk' to a smaller box in the upstairs bedroom I will need to connect via Cat 5 as wireless signal internally will not be strong enough.  Pre-cast slabs in the upstairs which is one of the main issues so need to get the spark on board at some stage.
