FARMERS STRIKE Monday July 29th

Hello. If these talks fail (which I assume they will) to get anything substantial for the farmers, I think that we should go about it a different way at the next talks. I sat down for dinner with a couple the other night and they were eating steaks, I told them that I wasn't eating beef because o

Manager smoking while right next to me

Hello. Is it not a good thing that she feels free enough with you to smoke in front of you? I often smoked in front of my bosses when outside and they didn't care as long as I was working and getting the job done

Brewing beer courses.

Hello again. Thank you for the replies. So does anyone know where I would gather information on the likes of growing my own hops? I suppose a horticultural course or something along those lines?

Brewing beer courses.

Hello. I was wondering how people get into micro brewing, is there a course run in Ireland that stands out as being better than others? I'm looking to learn brewing but from the raw ingredients like apples, barley and hops that I can grow on my own land. Any help is appreciated

Haircut for €10 in Limerick City and pay with Contactless

Hello Is there a bank charge on the contactless or tap card or Google pay thing? For the holder of the card I mean? Seems pointless looking for deals if the bank are going to load on a euro every time you use it. I'm from Kilkenny and usually a haircut costs €12 in most places but I'll pay €15 eu

Haircut for €10 in Limerick City and pay with Contactless

Hello. Maybe I'm getting old but I couldn't imagine going into town without a few notes in my pocket! And if I was worried about getting mugged, how would the mugger know that I don't carry cash? Personally I think I would prefer to throw down a €20 note and fist full of change on the ground whil

Changes to benefit the environment...

Hello, Yeah a half an acre is a lot considering that some people are running a market garden out of that amount of land. Not that I'm trying to sell it but the book I mentioned before "restoration agriculture" by Mark Shepard explains how he layed out an acre of his land. He had on an acre, 34

Why the sudden hysteria over climate change?

Hello, So you are saying that nothing should be done unless it completely solves the problem in one fantastic swoop? I'm not saying that anyone has to do anything and I have no interest in doing anything just so I can feel better than anyone. I'm just carrying a metal water bottle around with me

Why the sudden hysteria over climate change?

Hello. All these plans that come from the government are at the end of the day a money racket because that is what they do! They come up with new ways to make money from the population on a regular basis. But why do we need them to spur us into action? Banning cars and whatever else they can think

Changes to benefit the environment...

Hello again. I looked into apples a good bit at the time and although I have forgotten about exact numbers, here is what I came up with. A full size apple tree can produce between 60 and 150 kg of apples so we could take it as a 100kg average. If you put only 10 trees to the acre that is 1 ton of
