As we read of billionaires, etc., lavish expenditure on personal, private and touristy space exploration and exploitation. And as Prince William gives out that they should solve earthly problems first, here’s a thought.
Considering all the advanced Tech-know-how and research invested in and coming out of all this space exploration; Could they all not look at ways to install some kind of freezer system at the Poles and stop the ice caps’ melting?
Sound silly? Well, many supposedly silly ideas have gone on to be a fait accompli.

Fame at last!


streetdogs the word on the street, has been barred from Twitter, for an item about the suitable style of punishment , for the crimes of Wayne Couzens.

The killer policeman, who falsely arrested and handcuffed Sarah Everard, abducting her, raping her and murdering her. Disposing of her body, by burning her.

Said Wayne Couzens has reportedly said, there are worse crimes, and he should not die in prison for his own criminal acts.

streetdogs is barred from Twitter, for suggesting;

Wayne Couzens is right. He should not be allowed the privilege of dying of old age in a prison, but rather, should be taken to the Tower of London and Given the traditional Traitors Death.

When in Rome.

Now there are a few interesting aspects to this; One great one is that the lady in question is, as/are have many non-nationals, now learning Irish.

However, somethings less than pleasant, also strike one. If I am staying in a hotel in Paris, am I to assume that the French people around me, are speaking French to exclude me from understanding them? Or should I consider , as I do, they are in their own country, speaking the language they and their friends are comfortable with?

Also one wonders why or what gives this person a belief they have a right to an interest and understanding in the private conversations of relative strangers?

Is this another version of “To Hell or Connacht”” Native speakers locked in cupboards? There again there was a Bartender sacked in Temple Bar, because, a non Irish speaker took offence at said Bartender speaking Irish to a friend who had called into the bar. Third Class Citizen, Gee it feels like The DUP, have successfully invaded!

Before commenting on Irish public figures adversely commenting on President Michael D. Higgins. It’s worth pointing out in respect of one of the main issues, namely, the formal manner of addressing an office holder; The DUP, and other Unionist are well versed in the absolute necessity when being “Presented” (note Presented, not introduced) to their Monarch, to be addressing the same as; “Your Majesty” and ‘Ma’Ma. One doesn’t think there’s a single Unionist/Loyalist/Royalist, who even dare to think that the formal manner of addressing their Monarch is of little consequence. So, would one not expect that they would ensure to treat, what they consider a Foreign Dignity with equal respect as to their correct title?

TV3 “News” Garth Brooks new PR crew; And saving Leo’s bacon?

Is, not a bit rich, to find the main item on TV3 news, two days on the trot, is Garth Brooks batting for 5 in a row, in Croke Park. Strange that there appears to be, a very distinct campaign by the station to promote the idea of the 5 going ahead. Even bring the future Taoiseach into such promoting of the venture. Rather like the carry on previously resorted to. A lovely distraction for Leo, from Merriongate!

Back in the day, as they say. (Not That so long ago, I might say: lol.) As I stood at the bathroom wash-hand basin doing my preparations, for privileging the wider world with my presence; Through the door would often come the voice of my mother. “DON’T FOTGET TO USE THE NAIL BRUSH, AND GET THE GERMS AND DIRT OUT FROM UNDER YOUR NAILS!”

One has to wonder, why in these COVID- 19 times, as we are all advised on the need to wash and clean our hands at every turn! Why is my mother’s advice redundant? Anyone care to enlighten?
