Okay so you want an update huh


Well the man that gave up hitch hiking apparently broke two bones in his hand and had to have the tendons surgically re-attached to his thumb but is otherwise hale and hearty! And guess what???? I was right it was all my fault just like I figured! Now I have at least 2 government departments breathy hot stinky goobers down my back, all because I have so many employees I play chicken with their lives. I run the safest ship I can but I can not protect against bad luck and stupidity any more than they can legislate against it. I swear they won't be happy till I have 1 safety guy for every employee. Does anyone know where I can buy dozers and hoes with 2 seats?


On the employee front i hired 5 more and lost 2 so that leaves me at +3 at least till Monday when I see who doesn't come in


And Ireland? No i have done something so repugnant that i will never be welcome there again so don't hold your breath on the invitations. But its a lovely place and you shouldn't need an excuse to go as the people are friendly, they even like americans and every one has a cousin from Toronto. Just do yourself a favour if you are going to go to northern Ireland go in June, July and August can be a little dicey up there.


If you find yourself in Antrim Town, County Antrim go to Church Street to a wee pub called the Viscount Oneil's and tell them the Sean the big guy from Canada says hi. Same thing if you go to the Junction 1 Outlet mall in Antrim go to the Starbucks and if Bridget is still the Manager tell her I say hi as well. Its been more than 2 years but i do tend to leave an impression.


Go to the Giants Causeway its worth seeing even if its not worth going to see, especially as they are about to let a developer ruin the whole place.


In fact if I was to spread my wisdom I would say if you want to see northern Ireland go in the next 2 years or don't go at all! Its about to be "discovered" by tourists and it will loose its quiet charm and friendliness.


I almost pity the place as its about to be over ran with a human wave of bawling kids and rude tourists and will be forever changed. I am glad I seen it when it was still pristine. well relatively speaking


Don't worry about renting a car as the public transport is reasonably cheap and clean and besides parking's a bitch there


Well that's enough from me kiddos or at least Chris as my wee blog is almost a private conversation with myself

Screw that. WHAT DID YOU DO? Maybe I'll try to get to North Ireland in the next year or so. Might visit during a whole UK adventure. I loved dublin and took some tours out of there.
