    'I'M AFRAID OF AMERICANS.'

    Lovely: well, one thing's for certain - neither you nor Maureen ever wasted a day, and the stories you've collected and created for the grandchildren will see Maureen and yourself live on for ever more. Like you, I've always looked at life as an adventure. What time we're given we have to make...

    Is that yourself in the photo? If so, you have a twin in Smiley Bolger, Phil Lynott's best mate and errant personal manager. Of course, the fedora's a dead giveaway!

    'I'M AFRAID OF AMERICANS.'

    Oh, no: I'm truly sorry to hear that, Maurice: you two were the perfect pair, your globetrotting together has inspired many of us of a younger vintage to take to roaming and seeing all the beauty of this world. After all the miles you two covered together, I can only imagine how hard it is to go...

    Houston? We have an Elvis fan, over? Maurice? Care to greet the folks back on planet Earth? Over!

    'I'M AFRAID OF AMERICANS.'

    Hi, Mo - it's been a while: how are you and Missus doing? Still globetrotting and taking nice pictures? Nice to see you on here - maybe you'll delight with some recent shots from all your gallivanting? Another thread of photos by Maurice and Missus is most welcome. Greetings from snow-bound...

    Jeez, I pay €705.00 p/m for 52sqm in Helsinki's most popular and desired areas: Arabianranta. That covers everything from central heating, hot and cold water, under-heating in bathroom and kitchen, sauna, internet, parking, basement storage, and masses more freebies. I lived in a very Parisian...

    The lumenescence you see isn't battery driven, it's a reaction to the flash in my phone camera. I might be a bit eccentric, but neon switch on/off lights in my boots? I'm not that far gone yet, CG&P!

    I would but they're already tossed out in the trash. The hole was small enough to close/seal with a not iron, but they were close to their end anyway: the rubber soles aren't supposed to be used on gravel covered paving - they were designed for country type living, fields of snow type thing...

    French Affairs

    Yeah, but I do like that hustle and bustle of metro life and street life too. It's kind of like the French passion we see depicted in books and television. Hurry up and wait also being the lifestyle of the errant and constant musician - always hurrying to get to the next show, and then left...

    Man, that's some heavy bananas of snow fall out there. As soon as Mister Plough left yesterday evening after clearing the deck below my lounge window of a couple of tons of snow, it's now falling with a vengeance. My favourite kind too: the sort that falls very slowly in big fluffy lumps that...

    French Affairs

    Aye, they can be as rude as they like. It's a different culture of rude French life in Paris and Marseilles, whereas the people in the rural areas are the real French: moody, suspicious, lazy and slow moving, but very warm once you establish that you're Irish, not English. That's when the decent...

    Petition to remove Angelus

    When I lived on Castle Street in Dublin with Yoko, my favourite part of the day was the bells ringing out from Christchurch Cathedral across the street. Being Japanese, Yoko didn't understand the religious aspects of the bells ringing so I had to explain it to her. She still thought it was some...

    The Origins of cute hoorism in Ireland

    While we have a massive population of cute hoors in the south, I can't help but think of how the loyalist Nordies are viewed by the actual English themselves. It must grate more than a bit having these pandering fuck-wits demand their Britishness to be recognised even though nobody with even...

    Give 'em hell, Cap'n. Yes, Hangars even brought me a copy of Twenty Major's second book 'The Order Of The Phoenix Park' as a gift. It stands proudly on my bookshelf next to my many Irish books, some even in Finnish. For example: did you know that the Finns call the excellent 'Anam Cara' by...

    Val would simply walk down to the Phoenix Park with a knife and a fork and batter one of the deer into unconsciousness and then sit down and start munching on the raw brains and other goo that comes running out of the poor creature's eyes and ears. Then come up with a sham mathematical theory as...

    Do you know what? Hangars came up to visit me a few years back - she didn't fly the plane herself, she was on the guest list. She stayed several days and we even managed to get into a scrap in a bar in Kallio - the dude that wanted to fight me? She slapped him all over the gaff. She's amazing...

    The reformation and short tour they did was amazing. Dermot Doran (owner of Eamon Doran's pub in Temple Bar) had them play a private gig in Doran's for a select audience - I got the invite with DreadZ - mental night.

    I have a classic Ian Brown story - he was going to batter me this one night down in Waterford where he was doing a live gig. I went up into the gods with my 8mm camera and filmed the crowd from above. His people saw me and presumed I was bootlegging the gig. I wasn't, I'd been filming since...

    I made the error one night after work walking back home from Castleknock to Ballyer. I crossed the fields from the Castleknock gate to get to the Chapelizod gate but it was pitch dark and I could only see the lights ahead of me to guide me. I heard a sound nearby and chill went through me: I...
