Somewhere along the west coast, Skelligs, Bullrock, Eagle Island, Tearacht Island. I reckon the weather would be way wilder that side..

I lived in Balbriggan as a child and my bedroom looked out at Rockabill I think thats where my fascination started.

I've had a look at them already but the other halfs not as keen  ;D. I'd be looking a force 12 storm..

A rock station would be incredible or alternatively this (which I'm sure you'll have seen before) https://www.amusingplanet.com/2014/11/the-wave-swept-lighthouses-of-brittany.html?m=1

Anyone been following the Great Lighthouses of Ireland over the last few Sunday evenings? Fantastic scenery and an incredible story of some very ingenious and brave men (and women).

I love lighthouses and would love to stay on one during a storm, I think  :)

Every youngfella who plays the game is told to play to the whistle. Don't stop playing until you hear it. The only thing wrong with what Hendrick did was he wasted a glorious chance.

That's only true if he didn't realize what was taking place if he did it's a cnuts trick.

General discussion / What's your relationship with alcohol?
« on: October 12, 2018, 11:27:30 PM »
I always loved a beer from my teenage years, actually think it might have been the craic I craved rather than the actual beer but I partied hard through those years right up to my mid 30s. I never missed a day off work though or 'had' to have a drink, it never had control of me. As time went on though I found that I resented drink and felt down/anxious after taking it especially on the now less frequent occasions I overindulged but still felt socially awkward when not having a drink...

A couple of years back we had a few setbacks in our lives and during this I was diagnosed by my doctor with depression. I stopped drinking completely, wasn't hard I had nearly stopped by that stage anyways!! I'm working my way through it and doing fairly well but it has set me thinking about the role of alcohol in our lives!!

Everything we do revolves around it, I sometimes feel like a pariah for not drinking within my peer group and I know I'd be (unintentionally) left out of some gatherings because of it. Recently a close friend got married and I was invited to the stag and after having no drink for 20 months I felt I couldnt go without taking a drink, so I went and had a good drink and had a blast in fairness, I also had a drink at the wedding but now I'm happy to give it a miss again but already the cracks have started, well meaning I know, ' so youre back to being a dry shite' etc..

Is drinking too important in this country?

PS I apologise if this makes no sense I just typed it off the top of my head while trying to avoid the Late Late.

On the subject of reconditioned iPhones my other half got a new upgrade iPhone the other day and I know in my heart and soul it'll be my job to flog the old one. Its an iPhone 6s and it'll be in mint condition as she's had a screen protector and cover on it from day one, I'm sure she has the box and all the fittings in pristine condition too (OCD :)).

If anyone is interested drop me a message, I've no clue whats a fair price as I don't know the capacity of it or the market value but I'll not be too hard dealt with... I'll get it unlocked too.

Yeah the early ones were clunky, buggy and relatively slow but I'm reading good things about the newer Sony ones.

Even the premium Sony ones are meant to be a disaster in terms of usability compared to WebOS on LG or Tizen on Samsung, but of course you get the full access to the Android ecosystem.

The TCL TVs that are selling out like mad on Amazon US have Roku built in, and have read/watched a lot of reviews that say it's by far the best TV navigation experience.

I'll be honest I'd never heard of TCL theyre certainly food for thought.

Anyone got any recommendations for a good IPTV box. I've got an android, which I hate. EPG is awful and a zgemma which I like. I'm thinking of changing the android and unsure as to whether I should get a Mag 254 or a second zgemma. Any suggestions?

I have a zgemma that I love too, I like the 'Sky'like feel of it but maintainance can be tedious... If you want a secondary device the firestick is a cheap low maintenance option..
