Holidays, eh? No sooner are we back in the UK, than John has been called away to deal with yet another family drama. So I thought I’d post a couple of pictures from our Guinness brewery tour to cheer us both up.
Here’s John trying to steal the famous harp.
And here’s me, just about to sample the perfect pint (in the sparkliest glass) in the Gravity Bar Dublin’s highest viewpoint. Shame about the weather LOL!
Wishing you all a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2010, from John and myself.
It is now, officially, Christmas Day. It is 00:12 here in the UK, Roynie and I have drained a couple of bottles and the turkey is well and truly stuffed. The only thing missing is the Christmas crackers for the table. Please help out with some pathetic two-liner jokes.
Here is my starter for 10.
“Did you hear they have re-named Viagra …? It is now called Mycoxaflopin” (thanks to Anton, our decorator, for this)
Any others in a similar vein gratefully welcomed. Have a wonderful day. Happy Christmas.
Roynie found this earlier.

Since every radio station in the UK is swamping us with Christmas drivel, I thought I’d share a couple of my own favourites from Bob Rivers ‘twisted lyrics’.
#1 Walking in a Winter Wonderland
#2 Merry Christmas
For the over 50’s amongst us … everyone, in other words, except me (and Julie, of course) LOL!
We have Fred Beyer to thank for this: Ode to Forgetfulness
George sent this link by email. I have no idea who has seen it already, but I thought it quite touching:

Willie asked about games a while back. Here’s one that Facebook users might enjoy.
How it works is that when you register as a new Don (or Donna), the game pulls together any of your existing friends who are already playing as your “family”. John and I found we had half a dozen between us, but could do with some reinforcements …
She’s a wicked woman, that Rose! This is funny …
“Monster Mash” like you’ve never seen it before!
Here is a great picture of John’s new grandson, Jamie: born 6.59am, 13 October 2009: 8lbs 14oz. Poor little mite couldn’t keep any food down, due to an infection – hence the canula in his left hand. Even so, he’s giving his mum a very “old fashioned look” for one so young! What is he thinking?
