Fuzzman- another move to consider if you want to go from BKK to Chaing Mai is the train, might eat up a lot of your time if you only have 12 days but you get to see much more than you would on the flight
Get a sleeper compartment, itís an overnight train and there is a bar on it so you can have a bit of a rip in the process too! Itís good crack
Flights are cheap though and itís 1.5 hours so it will save you lots of time and make the most of your 12 days
Chaing Mai has everything from Thai cookery courses, hiking trips, motorcycle safaris, downhill biking trips if you are feeling lazy , night market, day market - there is no shortage of stuff to do
Accomodation in Chaing Mai is good for every budget
Stay anywhere within 500 metres of Tai Pai gate ( I think thatís the spelling is wrong but you will figure it out)

Flight wise , like Heffo says unless you are on a frequent flyer programme you wonít get no upgrades
Have a great time , you will have a ball !!

Did anyone else notice on GAAGO coverage of the Tyrone-Monaghan game that it skipped from 39 mins to 43 mins ? It didnít show Beggans free hitting the post

Over zealous refereeing

Not many Irish underage teams bring a Dutch team to extra time and penalties in tournament football

Boiled Dublin Queens with butter,  mixed with a whole chopped and fried onion and 3 bacon rashers.   Not sure any dish on the planet beats it.

If you had that plus a soft fried egg or two you would be approaching perfection

Did McGurk play for Monaghan last Sunday against Kerry? I know he was involved in the first 2 league games.

I was delighted to see him get a chance back home after been playing in Lancashire the last 3 or 4 years, always looked like he was capable of stepping up to this level.

Hi didn't play last weekend, nor was he named in the programme.

Nice article re:
Access to the article is restricted to subscribers only.

I haven't read an article  that has used the thread worn cliche "monaghan are punching above their weight"   since last tuesday's Indo

Itís ok Martin Breheny will be doing an in-depth statistical piece in Mondayís Indo which will correlate between the average weight of our panel and the size of the county , nudie will get a mention, heíll call Conor McManus Ciaran and quote Kavanagh whilst the headline will be Farney punch above their weight under a picture of Barry McGuigan

I see Delaney and the lads are looking for Ä500k to play the Aussies in a friendly.
In a delicious twist of fate , the FFA , who somehow manage to make the FAI look competent , canít manage to flog the Idea of a pre World Cup warm up match for mega bucks to any of the Australian state capitals
Is it the big $$ required to keep Delaney and the lads in clover or the thoughts of the best fans in the world (tm) rampaging around lifting litter and serenading nuns ??

Vatican 2 changed the way mass was celebrated,mass in Latin (still remember acting as Altar server during these) and a few other cosmetic changes for ecumenical purposes.It did not change core doctrine.

One must also remember that the Pope,being the proxy of Christ on earth,is constantly the receptacle of Divine inspiration and enlightenment,so any alterations he makes are divinely inspired

What about Slavery Tony ?
The Church not only explicitly condoned slavery and allowed it in Canon Law, but the Church actually owned slaves itself. The Church did not get around to condemning it until 1888 decades after most secular governments had already abolished it. Despite the fact that the Bible and the Church condoned it for centuries, John Paul II included slavery among matters that are ''intrinsically evil'' -- prohibited ''always and forever'' and ''without any exception'' -- a violation of a universal, immutable norm.

Historically, one of the most prominent examples of the Church changing its teaching was in the matter of usury, or charging interest on loans. The early Church forbad interest on loans, much in the same way Islam does today. But the teaching was eventually softened to state that exorbitant interest was forbidden.

There has been changes in format but core doctrine has never changed nor can it be.

Cough - Vatican 2 - cough

Magpie Seanie,it is the role of this and any other Pope to defend and promote Catholic doctrine,which is timeless and unchangeable.This Pope may be more unconventional than his immediate predecessors but I have detected no divergence from doctrine.

I do not know what is so hard to understand about the fact that the Church's mission is to save souls not win popularity,therefore it simply cannot change its scripture based stance on homosexuality,abortion etc just to be "compassionate" or "popular"

So Vatican 2 was an illusion then Tony ?

You are some chancer!

I have seen the Pope that often in Rome,that I doubt I could be bothered with all the hassle (traffic,crowds,security etc) when he comes here.His visit here is akin to a football pre season friendly,no comparison when you've seen him in serious mode on his home turf.

So in effect you admit that those who go to see el papa in the north on his visit are getting a lesser papal experience than you have experienced in Rome ?
Similar to someone going to see Queen without Freddie Mercury, yes ?
Do you leave trip advisor reviews of each time you see him in Rome ?

That's not anger :)

Passive aggression is just another form of anger, AZ.

Itís ok syfus, I can see whatís happening here- you are projecting your own passive aggression into others as a means of seeking acceptance from those you consider stronger members of the group - itís often seen as the only way perceived conflict ( often where there actually is no conflict ...) can be resolved.
You have some deep rooted issues man. For your own sake you should get some help. Lifeís good stop being an angry man and enjoy it.
Following a cult like the blue shirts will not help either.
