electric or gas cooker?

I love gas for instant heat and analogue control. I also love electric for slow cooking where you can leave something simmer for hours on a very low heat. Induction hobs, I have used a few and the software / heat controls are infuriating compared to turning a dial. It just irritates me to my ba

The Restaurant Recommendation Thread

Ah it's pure nostalgia. There's a guilty pleasure in sharing a massive plate of dynamite nachos in there over a few beers. We all know Tex-mex is american fake food anyway, where cooking is basically opening packets. Open a bag of corn chips, a jar of salsa, jar of peppers, can of beans, grate so

Rent freeze?

Not sure what the fatalism contributes. :confused: Rents are too high because there are no units available, so might as well make it worse because you don't give a toss about the people on the streets or stuck with their parents for years?

Rent freeze?

Yes when I put it like that... I'd be mad to keep them, right? I've been doing this for 20+ years, so I've seen economy ups and downs. It's not as easy to fill commercial in a downturn. We're at peak employment now and office space is in demand. It's not always like that. The leases are longer, u

Rent freeze?

What a completely daft notion this is. We have converted 80% of our residential city units to office or shop space due to the recent years tax changes and penalisation of residential housing suppliers. I was keeping the residential units for diversification and in some way for civic services. I kn

How serious is the allergy level? My kids egg allergy they could tolerate it being a glaze on something (like a sausage roll), but just not anything very eggy or soft, like an omelette. Blackrock castle and Market lane chain I have found to be good with labelling for allergy and are good with chil

Best Santa experience in Cork?

Went to CNPOE in Cuskinny and we were disappointed to be honest. I don't think it's got the magic of the one in Dunnes in the city at all. I didn't realise that the first 40 minutes of the CNPE 'experience' are outdoors, as the ticket clearly states it's indoors, but to wear sensible shoes. We wen

Bramley Apple Tree

It is a common misconception that triploid apple trees need two suitable pollination partners but this is not true, they only need one. The "Tri" in the name is a reference to the number of chromosomes it has , nothing to do with its pollination. Triploids tend to be self sterile, so they need one o

what is the burning passion for having an open fire?

There are far more fires from stoves than open fires. They are hotter and can ignite their surroundings easily, especially with a faulty flue

Government looking to force landlords to upgrade

Pension funds and investment funds. These funds are the ones buying the properties and paying low corporate tax rates on the income, rather than the taxes the LL was paying. Any landlord who (probably sensibly) prioritises profit above a sense of civic responsibility will do this. I get on well w

There were a series of questions in my post you have selectively snipped, intended to find the source of your disapproval. This is the one that triggered it seems. ;)

Bottomless Brunch

Wouldn't the stomach be ripped off you if you drank two bottles of wine in 90 minutes? Is that your plan... go in there solo, and just neck it?
