What age are the kids?  If you go for a pup it's worse than having a new kid. There's the hassle of toilet training, preparing secure space for him in the garden, cleaning up the poo outside, deciding where in the house he can have access to, getting up early in the morning to let him out etc.  There are also costs involved, neutering ( a must ) kennelling, grooming, etc. As regards food, go for the nuts and remember the better the food, the less cleaning up you'll have. We had a cocker and they are class, great fun but completely mad and need lots of exercise. We have a Bichon now got him when he was 15 months and still a handful. Finally Bitch is better than a dog. I know I've had cross words with you in the past, can't even remember what it was over to be honest, and nor do I care.  Good luck with the dog, whatever you decide.

Any dog with cocker blood in him will be fun, friendly and very energetic. I'd strongly advise you, though, to get a fully grown dog if you can, about 3 year old, rather than a pup. A pup is a torture.

How am I not a true fan? Honouring the Lions and paying a substantial sum for two tickets with all profits going to the Celtic Foundation who do magnificent work?
Look, by the time you've guzzled up every scrap of food about the place, you fat Cnut, there'll be little profit left for any foundation.

Do you honestly think that anyone on this board is impressed by this or is thinking anything other than 'what a narcissistic geriatric idiot that guy is' Indeed I ask any Board member who thinks otherwise to say so

One week to go until I attend a special lunch in Glasgow with the Lions.Should be a memorable.occasion.
If I was a Lisbon Lion I'd be thinking of ringing in sick that day.

Still the biggest band in the world.

Bono preaches a little, OK a lot.

But perhaps their campaigns just might have had some impact - Bono was the first person to talk about 3rd World countries needing Justice, not Handouts.  He spearheaded the Millennium Initiaitve to cancel 3rd World Debt. 

Bono's fortune (the vast majority of which he has given away secretly) is not going to solve third world poverty which is his major crusade.  To suggest all world problems could be solved by Bono handing his money over, is ridiculous. 

I also remember the song Walk On at 360 Tour when he got people to walk onto the stage with Aung San Suu Kyi masks.  He used this song to highlight her house arrest.  Shortly after, she was freed.  Up until then no one had a clue who she was.

During the ZooTV tour, he did nightly satellite links with Sarajevo.  After the war, they went and did a broadcast concert there.

He came to Belfast to do a concert to promote the peace process here.

Their music is also excellent and has stood the test of time.

An Irish band, biggest in the world, and making a difference.

...but sure wouldn't it be better if he was like Liam Gallagher; drugged out, can't sing, fighting, foul mouthed, acting the p***k everywhere he goes...
Oasis in their heyday were a class act.  At least you saw what you got. I like some, indeed a lot of U2s music, it's Bono's hypocrisy and lecturing that gets me.

I sussed that out months ago. Mods must realise it too. Unsurprising that they haven't taken action as the guy seems to be able to act with impunity on this board. He's ruined thread after thread.

Can we re-name this thread "Begrudgers R US?"
What a lad of bollix. The fact is that if Bono simply concentrated on the music, or if he practiced what ge preached as regards poverty etc then everything would be okay. But he doesn't do either of these things so that overshadows everything and that's why I dislike them. I was a huge fan for years, saw them in Newry Town Hall, but I wouldn't go to the back door to see them. The Rolling Stones, on the other hand, just class.

Actually, I lied a bit there. My brother and I wanted to see them in Newry Town Hall but we had no way of getting there.

Jaysus fair play to that Bono. He hasn't changed a bit in the 30 years since The Joshua Tree was released.The man hadn't a grey hair in his head.

Neither had the Edge!   ;)

Actually, The Edge has the edge. He's youngest, so less chance of grey hairs.
I think Larry, do you know who I am, Mullan is the youngest
