A woman is sitting at her deceased husband’s funeral. A man leans in to her and asks, “Do you mind if I say a word?”.

“No, go right ahead”, the woman replies.

The man stands, clears his throat, says “Plethora”, and sits back down.

“Thanks”, the woman says, “that means a lot”

I have lived in and around Strabane, Portstewart, Lurgan and Dungannon in my time and work near Portadown at the minute.  Lurgan is not as bad as its made out to be, got more going for it than Dungannon and Portadown.  Strabane is not as bad either.  I take it posters here haven't been to places like Carrickmore, Newtonstewart, Castlederg, Middletown, Derrynoose, Limavady or Coalisland?

There was also a caravan site at the top of the Monagh Bypass in Belfast.

Have you never stayed there? lol. Joking!!!!

Dropbox v Googledrive v OneDrive

A couple of years ago I signed up for Dropbox and am regretting it. Can Dropbox be configured like another logical drive on your desktop?

I'd like to have seen more progress on what I call the de-segregation of society. We still have kids growing up separately because of the segregated education system, and any time I bring it up all I get is the usual bullsh*t about how "Catholic schools teach kids to respect people of different faiths." If kids are growing up separately and not coming into contact with or forming meaningful friendships and relationships with "themuns" until they're old enough to reach the workplace then this sense of two distinct communities is going to remain in place. As long as that segregation exists the problem exists.

Where would you find a themmun in Cross?




Duck!

The GFA is a good and right for the occupied six.

The problem is with the politicians/leaders whose job it is to continue to abide by it - that means the majority of unionists and republican dissidents.

The sooner we have "ready golf" on tour the better.

If we are looking for reasons for Rory's bad form on Sunday then I would suggest that he needed to  spend more time on the range. From what I saw, he was too relaxed. He should have been 100% focused on the first drive, instead of thinking about his winners speech.

I was wondering how many people's lives would have changed if we had Twitter and Facebook in the 1960's or 1970's. For example:

- with his dodgy friends, would Frank Sinatra's career have flourished?
- similarly, would Barbara Windsor have last as long as she did?
- would relaxation of laws on homosexuality have happened?
- would the Sun have been able to print Page 3?
etcetera etcerera

What an unpopular winner. Everyone wanted either Fowler or Speith to pip him. Good article here on it http://www.golf.com/knockdown/2018/04/08/masters-patrick-reed-estranged-family-complex-mix-emotions


Proof that Reed is a cnut of the highest order, and his tart isn't helping matters.

Agreed that Spieth will get a grand slam before Rory.

You drive for show and you putt for dough.

Rory is going to finish 5 over for the round. He has been too busy thinking about his winning speech.

The Wexford boycott was nothing to do with the State. De Valera told people to cop themselves on.

As most Protestants were well heeled few if any needed public service jobs. Banks and certain Companies/shops  made sure they weren't unemployed.
Until the 19 70's Catholics didn't get above a certain level in Guinnesses,  also a  company in Limerick whose name I can't now remember. 2 shops I know of didn't employ Catholics till the 19 70's.
If there was anti Protestant discrimination ......it wasn't the in your face croppies lie down stuff of the North  anyway.
Still wouldn't be right but I'm not aware of any other than the Mayo Librarian case.
This does not mean that the catholic owned business did not discriminate against Protestants.

Sure, but just remember about discrimination against Catholics next time someone tries to score a point.

Reeds fade shot looks fragile. Let's hope it gets him into trouble on Sunday.

If Rory does not win then I would much rather it was Ricki, than Reed.
