Kia Ora,Two Orangey For Crows

This ad came out on tele when I was only seven years old. I nearly cant recite the Our Father but I don't miss one beat on this song. My favourite was the gangley lad that grabs the sun and uses it as a basketball.

Clap Your Hands And Say Yeah Gimme Some Salt

The cool song from Clap Your Hands And Say Yeah called "gimme some salt". An oldie but silvery.

Seperated At Birth

Lindsay Lohan spotted on vacation looking awfully like Golom from Lord Of The Rings. Precious !!

The Resteraunt. Joke

A man is dining in a fancy restaurant and there is a gorgeous redhead sitting at the next table. He has been checking her out since he sat down, but lacks the nerve to talk with her.
Suddenly she sneezes , and her glass eye comes flying out of its socket toward the man. He reflexively reaches out, grabs it out of the air, and hands it back.
'Oh my, I am so sorry,' the woman says as she pops her eye back in place.
'Let me buy your dinner to make it up to you,' she says.
They enjoy a wonderful dinner together, and afterwards they go to the theatre followed by drinks. They talk, they laugh, she shares her deepest dreams and he shares his. She listens.
After paying for everything, she asks him if he would like to come to her place for a nightcap and stay for breakfast. They had a wonderful, wonderful time.
The next morning, she cooks a gourmet meal with all the trimmings. The guy is amazed Everything had been SO incredible! 'You know,' he said, 'you are the perfect woman. Are you this nice to every guy you meet?'
'No,' she replies. . .

Wait for it. .

It's coming. .

The suspense is killing you, isn't it?

She says:
'You just happened to catch my eye.'

Roly Eastenders

Poor old Roly, I'm sure he was a nice dog but I can't stand poodles, with there pube like hair and I'm all that, if I was a KitKat I'd eat myself attitude, I think poodles are wankers, They are the Margret Thatcher of the dog world. But at the same time take a look at there owners, Dirty Den and Angie for example, hardly a happy puphood. Whatever, What does it say about a person who knowingly buys a poodle with the intent to groom it weekly and show it of as a status symbol. Dogs show us kindness and affection no matter if you are homeless, scruffy, depressed, drunk, sad, happy, whatever. I think it's bad that people flaunt there dogs like a new toy and paint there nails etc ( I have seen it ). I love my dogs but Jesus, there are boundaries. If people didn't want to make a show piece out of there dogs they would let them grow there natural hair and progress the way nature intended, Instead people cut there hair and cross breed them for money and force the dog to change. It's like people that declaw there cats just so they don't ruin there furniture, Fuck that, if you want a cat, they have claws, deal with it. I have a cat called Motorbike and have discarded a couch just two weeks ago because he used it to sharpen his claws, I dont care, he should be in the wild sharpening his claws on trees and small rabbit bones. Our dogs have a weird stumpy tails that look a little strange but that is there tail, so what if it looks funny, that is what makes them look unique. Me and Molly call Monkeys tail "The finger tail" because it looks like a witches finger when it wags, it is very funny and adds to his character, why would you change that. I can see why people would chop there tails off because it looks odd, not me, That's the way they are born and that's the way they should remain. They still give the same love no matter what they look like.
I know of a family here that adopted a Chinese girl, she was born with a birthmark on her face and she wasn't good enough for the family in China.That is shocking. What The Fuck !!!
I guess what I'm trying to say is, if something isn't wrong don't try to fix it, leave it alone .
Don't get fixated on the media and how something should look or act, just accept things for what they are and try to be happy. "Life goes by pretty fast,if you don't stop and look around every once in a while, you'll miss it"
I dont know where all this stuff in my head came from, but there you have it.

Art Brut. Formed A Band

"Formed A Band" from Art Brut is the first song I heard from the likely lads from London. I feel they take piss of other bands in this song with the simple lyric of "we formed a band" it's catchy, nothing ground breaking but it works. They have a strong cult following in Europe and they seem to be cathing on here in U.S and A as they have been playing some festivals. I'm gonna try to see them soon.

MS Update

Today I am Having an MRI scan to see if the MS has progressed any more. I will be injected with a blue dye that will go threw my body. Then I will go into the machine, the blue dye basically will show up white blobs which are tares in my brain and spinal chord caused by the MS. The neurologist then will look at last years results and be able to tell if there has been any progression. Hopefully it will be good.

The Laundramat

I have heard that the sale of blue jeans has risen in the last couple of months. This is a good thing as it shows people are gaining confidence in the economy and spending a little. It leaves me wondering, has Chinese Laundromat business sky rocketed since the fall of the economy as all the big Whigs must be shitting them selves on a regular basis.

My Friend Skeeter

Most people that know me thought that all along I had moved away to New York, actually I moved to the depts of the Missisippi to live with long time Alligator wrastler Skeeter. I had met Skeeter on the Aer Lingus flight over and we hit it of as he was telling me the craic about the Missisippi. I said feck it and I went to live with him.
Our daily routine was getting up at 11.00 in the morning, thats when we would get stuck into our first case of Paps Blue Ribbon.(cheapest cans you can buy). After necking them we would get into the pickup, slaughtered drunk of we went to the liquer store for more swill and some grits boy.
Ah Skeeter did love them grits god love him.
Skeeter was about seven foot tall, three hundred pounds and ugly as sin. I remember as we would drive into town people would shout "yyyyeeeeehhhhaaaaaa there goes the skinny Irish guy and the big ugly bastard' and they would throw there hats in the air and stomp there feet.
It was quite the sight. Each day Skeeter wrastled Alligators for drink money and to try to earn the love of a skank called Lou Anne. She was very aggressive in manor and covered in tattoos, she would batter ya and also was ugly as sin to boot.
One day at the Gator Wrastling they brought out the biggest meanest gator we had ever seen. He was about one thousand pounds weight and about sixteen foot long. Skeeter didn't even flinch for he had a master plan. I had noticed that he had been chewing an unusually big mouthfull of tabaccy that day which seemed odd.
The match was ready to start and Skeeter hoped into the swamp almost stalking the gator. Then with a savage burst of energy like a sonic boom from Guile the gator lunged for Skeeter, Being so big and ugly Skeeter caught the gator in mid air and pinned the beast to the ground.Opening its mouth up with his bare hands he began to do the biggest spit I had ever seen in my life, It was so thick and brown that I thought it wasn't gonna fall from his mouth. When it fell it fell, right into the gators mouth. Skeeter then let the gators mouth snap shut for the last time. The spit was so strong it sealed the gators mouth shut, That's when Skeeter got around the beast and kicked the shite clean out of the gator winning the love of Lou Anne. That's when I decided I best move on to the Big Apple and leave the tramps to get on with there lives Paddy free. The picture above is the only proof of being there along with my memories that is.

Jack Madness

A rare snap of the legendary Ardee 80s rock band Jack Madness seen here in Brian Muldoons in 1980. I'm hoping the Cheecky Pigs are going to reform for "The Fattening Of The Pig" music event which is takin place on the 12th of June at The Bailey Ardee in aid of MS Ireland.

Shit . Joke

For some time many of us have wondered just who is Jack Schitt?

We find ourselves at a loss when someone says, 'You don't know Jack Schitt!'

Well, thanks to my friends’ generous genealogy efforts, you can now respond in an intellectual way.

Jack Schitt is the only son of Awe Schitt. Awe Schitt, the fertilizer magnate, married O. Schitt, the owner of Needeep N. Schitt, Inc. They had one son, Jack.

In turn, Jack Schitt married Noe Schitt. The deeply religious couple produced six children: Holie Schitt, Giva Schitt, Fulla Schitt, Bull Schitt, and the twins Deep Schitt and Dip Schitt..

Against her parents' objections, Deep Schitt married Dumb Schitt, a high school dropout.

After being married 15 years, Jack and Noe Schitt divorced Noe Schitt later married Ted Sherlock, and because her kids were living with them, she wanted to keep her previous name. She was then known as Noe Schitt Sherlock.

Meanwhile, Dip Schitt married Loda Schitt, and they produced a son with a rather nervous disposition named Chicken Schitt.
Two of the other six children, Fulla Schitt and Giva Schitt, were inseparable throughout childhood and subsequently married the Happens brothers in a dual ceremony. The wedding announcement in the newspaper announced the Schitt-Happens nuptials.
The Schitt-Happens children were Dawg, Byrd, and Horse.

Bull Schitt, the prodigal son, left home t o tour the world. He recently returned from Italy with his new Italian bride, Pisa Schitt.

Now when someone says, 'You don't know Jack Schitt,' you can correct them.

Crock O. Schitt

Thanks Belinda.

Some Snaps !

We have been working in New Jersey the arm pit state for the past week. The drive there is literally the drive at the start of the Sopranos which is kinda cool but the 2 hours it takes everyday to get there is a pain in the pipe It doesn't take long to piss you off. Surprisingly after the long trek the last thing that you would expect would be a nice beach town called Belmar. While we where working there I managed to take a few quick snaps at lunch. My favourite is the dead rat and the waves close up.

Tegan And Sara. Back In Your Head

Two sisters, two guitars. On-stage banter about diarrhea, the ever-present possibility that friendly bickering may suddenly erupt into bloodshed, and rockin' pop songs that will blindside you as surely as a soccer Mom in an SUV talking shite on her cell phone. Ladies and germs, please welcome Tegan and Sara. Bring out the gimps !!!

New Epidemic Sweeps New York

With the economic crisis tearing through the world like the Celtic tiger ripped threw Ireland a few years back, it is leaving behind a melting pot of disasters and epidemics.
One disaster is the amount of high rollers from business's such as Freddy Mac and Fanny Higgins that have killed them selves from the pressures of the media and the sheer amount of other peoples money that they lost.
The latest epidemic that is sweeping the U.S at the moment is called M.G.L, it stands for, Multi Generational Living. This epidemic is quite serious as it is causing mothers and fathers that have lost there jobs to move back in with there children to help them manage there finances. Researchers for the government have been looking into the crisis and have focused there attention on Ireland. The epidemic seems to have been occurring in Ireland for many years. The shocking thing is that the roles are reversed and it is the children that have been moving back in with there parents. They are calling it M.G.L Ireland. If you have noticed any of the following symptoms you could be smack bang in the middle of the epidemic crisis.

M.G.L Ireland Symptoms
-No Job
-Sleeping a lot
-Inability to do ones laundry
-Excessive consumption of alcohol
-Inability to understand ones age
-Watching television for hours
-Smoking lots of cigarettes
-Losing ones vehicle
-Walking up and down small towns streets for hours
-Going to the bar on Tuesdays around eleven a.m
-Terrible depression after spending seventy five percent of the dole money on Tuesday
-Staring into space
-Eating lots of toast and cereal
-Waiting for Fridays
-Dreading Mondays
-Considering going to Mass again
-Comparing things to the potato famine to make the situation seem better
-Massive consumption of Tay
-Putting one slice of ham on the sandwich instead of two

Those are just some of the shocking symptoms of M.G.L Ireland. Please take caution as M.G.L Ireland is getting worse by the day. Parents be advised to change the locks immediately.

Dirty Dominos Disgusting Deep Dish

Dominos Pizza is a pizza take out/delivery chain which is a staple of American diet across the nation. I have partaken in the Domino feast many times, but I think it will be no more.
These scumbags that work in the store have made total shite of the franchise, There slogan of a thirty minute delivery rarely pays off, as a forty five minute delivery plus usually is the case? I have often wondered what sort of beast makes the grub in these type of takeouts and dismissed the idea of a dirty knacker preparing my supposedly delicious deep dish. Now I'm sure that I will not be feasting on Dominos again. Thousands of people have stopped buying the food including myself and the store has been closed to sanitize and wash all the pubes down the drain, but I will not be taking the risk again that is for sure. A white trash girl took the video with her camera phone. She is equally as dirty as the guy, but they both claim it was a hoax and they where bored and had nothing else to do. I don't believe it. The two scum lords are now are in jail.
Personally I will not be buying Dominos Pizza no more.

Telekinesis Performs in an alley at south by southwest

Telekinesis are my favorite band of the week. They made a big blast at SXSW and I bet you will here of them in the future. The video is a cool stripped down tune which I think is really cool and when they make it big the clip will be sought after. Wait for them !!!

Madonna Falls From Horse

Madonna obviously wasn't raised with horses. She fell and did herself in while having a spin on a horse in the Hamptons last weekend. She must be moving on to bigger and better things as A-Rod (any old Rod) mustn't have been big enough. I'm sure she will be back riding again soon.

The Black Keys. Meet Me In The City

Dan and Patrick were childhood buddies who grew up in the same Akron neighborhood and attended the same schools. But they didn't recognize their natural musical affinity until well into high school when they started jamming together with other aspiring musician friends, who they soon ditched. Early demos of The Black Keys featured a third member, who played a moog bass, but he didn't last long either, and they subsequently carried on as a duo. Says Dan, "Pat and I just click. We walk in to a groove quite easily. It's kind of hard to describe." Their minimalist approach to rock is similar to what the late-70s New York City duo Suicide's has been to electronic dance music: The Black Keys have been able to make something ferociously noisy, deceptively melodic, and surprisingly sincere out of the simplest tools and riffs. (Unlike Suicide, though, they're more congenial than confrontational with their audiences.)

The Fattening Of The Pig

"The Fattening Of The Pig" is the music gig I am putting together at The Bailey in Ardee Co.Louth on the 12th of June. It's looking like all the pieces are falling into place. So far the bands are..... Just Friends - Cunning Stunts - The Enemies and Callaghans butchers have donated a pig to roast on the spit. It should be great.
Tickets are $10 or pay at the door. All proceeds go to Multiple Sclerosis Ireland.
Thanks to all who have agreed to participate

The Most Stupid Add In The World

This add has been on tele here in New York for about a week or so now and I must say it is pure shite ! You would think it was a spoof but it's really on the tele. E bloody gits

Gaelic In The Future ?

I was in getting a CT scan this morning which thankfully shows up nothing new. It was no big deal at all really, the worst part was drinking the crap to highlight your innards. It was kinda spacey as the lasers and light where going and the electric bed an all.
It got me thinking about Gaelic football and how would it be possible to play it in the future. What would the ball be like, ? would the shorts be painted on to the players like a few years ago or what. So I went online and some lad claims to have gone about one hundred years into the future and he went to a Louth game and that's the picture to prove it. Not like I imagined at all.

Elephant Man. Joke

In 1986, Peter Davies was on holiday in Kenya after graduating from Northwestern University .
On a hike through the bush, he came across a young bull elephant standing with one leg raised in the air. The elephant seemed distressed, so Peter approached it very carefully.
He got down on one knee, inspected the elephants foot, and found a large piece of wood deeply embedded in it. As carefully and as gently as he could, Peter worked the wood out with his knife, after which the elephant gingerly put down its foot. The elephant turned to face the man, and with a rather curious look on its face, stared at him for several tense moments. Peter stood frozen, thinking of nothing else but being trampled. Eventually the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned, and walked away. Peter never forgot that elephant or the events of that day.
Twenty years later, Peter was walking through the Chicago Zoo with his teenaged son. As they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the creatures turned and walked over to near where Peter and his son Cameron were standing. The large bull elephant stared at Peter, lifted its front foot off the ground, then put it down. The elephant did that several times then trumpeted loudly, all the while staring at the man.
Remembering the encounter in 1986, Peter could not help wondering if this was the same elephant. Peter summoned up his courage, climbed over the railing, and made his way into the enclosure. He walked right up to the elephant and stared back in wonder. The elephant trumpeted again, wrapped its trunk around one of Peter legs and slammed him against the railing, killing him instantly.
Probably wasn't the same elephant.

Black Lips. Veni Vidi Vici

After swiftly becoming one of the Atlanta underground’s most talked about bands, and along the way being banned from numerous venues for their wild live shows, the group released albums and seven inches on different underground garage labels like Bomp and In The Red. Tragically, Eberbaugh was killed in a freak traffic accident but the band carried on with New Orleans-born Ian St Pe. These events would go on to influence the song “How Do You Tell A Child That Someone Had Died”, a stand out track on Good Bad, Not Evil.
The Black Lips sound is a mixture of dirty psychedelic blues songs about Holy World War 3 “Veni Vidi Vicci” outright pop hits like “Katrina” (written the night the band found out that the Hurricane of the same names had devastated New Orleans) and Bad Kids (based around certain band members’ experiences with juvenile detention centres). There’s also the bruised, tender album closer “Transcendental Light”, a song written by Ian about discovering his mother’s body. Give them a lash.

Me Skull

Tomorrow I have to go for a CT (cat scan). I was thinking about it today and it brought me back to last year when I had my first MRI scan. When the doctors came back with the results of my brain they where alarmed. You see there was such a large quantity of shite along with the MS. Above are the actual scans of my brain. The white blobs are actually MS. If there is that much shite in my brain imagine how much will be in my stomach.

Britney Spears Surprise Turn Up

At the Walk MS today we where posing for a picture at the lovely beach in Rye. Next thing a helicopter comes hovering in. Then some yoke comes flying down a rope and it only turned out to be Britney herself. She was heading on her way for the Circus tour in Manhattan when she spotted Mick from Dublin on the boardwalk and requested the pilot to stop as she could not contain herself. You see Mick is so much of a big sexy animal. She was dying to give him a quick lash before heading on with the tour. Luckily we had an innocent bi stander ready to take the snap. It truly was a mental day. You can see by the shot that Britney was ready for action and flexing her pythons for the shot. At one stage we all had a great laugh as Britney took the head of Damo with a slap by accident. You can see the smack in the shot. We all had a laugh. Shes not the worst of them the auld Britney. Lovely Lassie !!

Walk MS

The Walk Ms was actually great. I thought I was going to be very upset but it turns out it was a good feel day. Thankfully I had (Bridie beag) the wife with me and all my friends, Mick, Caso, Siobhan, Damo, Michael, Kita, Michael and it was a grand walk. We did the six miles and at the half way point we stopped for bananas and a slash and we where good to go. When we got to the finish there was a big spread of burgers, hot dogs, Starbucks coffee, steamed or raw mussels, potato knishes, cake, lolly pops, Candy floss, you name it. Then after the drive we headed to Rory Dolans and had some more food and some pints. All in all a great day was had by all.

Kasabian. Vlad The Impaler

Kasabian being one of my top bands over the past few year come up trumps with another class track called "Vlad The Impaler". It's a banging tune that needs to be heard. It makes me wanna beat the spud picking record, I get pumped up so much.

Hobo Thief At My House

A couple of weeks ago I had a small job power washing a mansion in Riverdale New York. I hadn't got a good set of clothes to keep me dry as it has been a while since I have been power washing. I called my friend Brian Cassidy who claims to be a painter and I asked him for a lend of his skins. The job went grand, although it nearly killed me MS wise but the funny thing was, the bleach I was using ruined the pants and jacket of the skins. I dumped the pants at the job, but I took the jacket home with the thought of salvaging it. It was a waste of time as it was in shite. So I threw it in the bin. Today I was moping around the sitting room and I spotted a hobo coming in the driveway of my house so I opened the blinds a wee bit and watched. He was rooting away and taking some cans and bottles and then he spotted the jacket from the skins. He sized it up and being a strapping hobo the jacket seemed to fit him. So of he went up the road with a lovely new anorak for himself and a few old cans and bottles, god love him. Well I suppose I got a lend of it of a knacker so it's kinda fitting, pardon the pun. Caso you gypo...Wagwan. Above are the actual pictures.

Joke. The Blind Man

A blind man walk's into a bar. He orders a drink and says to the barmaid, "do you want to hear a joke about blondes ?"
Silence falls and the woman next to him says "Before you say anything, the girl behind the bar is a blonde, the girl at the door is blonde, I'm a six foot, sixteen stone blonde karate black belt and my friend here is a blonde wrestler. Do you still want to tell your joke.
" Nah the blind guy says. Not if I have to explain it four times!"

Walk MS / Cuddles.

Tomorrow is the big Walk MS day, it's starting at ten a.m so we have to be up good and early. I'm looking forward to it although it probably will be a little emotional as I am going to See other people with MS that are in a worse position than me and I'm sure it's gonna be a little hard to deal with. I imagine I will be wondering if I will end up in a bad way but fuck it, I'm not now and I must face the reality. Things aren't so bad i suppose as I heard today my poor friend that I went to school with had a horrible accident and passed away this morning. R.I.P Cuddles, what a shame such a nice lad. His name is Gerard Kerr and I went to school with him since we where four years old, that is and Ardee nick name I forgot to add to the list. H e would attend my birthday party's as young fellas and I would attend his. I can remember that he used to live beside Seamus Farrelly on the Dundalk road and myself and Bobby Dunne would call down on the bikes and have a mess with Nicky Callan, Blacky, Cuddles and the catapults out in the fields. I can't remember exactly but we did some sort of messing involving Brian Farrelly. We where only gasons and I think we made him cry or something stupid like that. Seamus took myself, Cuddles, Dunney and Brian in to his house and reenacted a court house, him being the judge. We all had to take turns in our defense and Seamus decided who was innocent and who was guilty. I think we all where a bit innocent. All the best to The Kerr family, Adrian Black (blacky)and Nicky Callan (fat) as I know they where close to Cuddles, it will be a hard time the for the next while and I will be thinking of them.

The Fattening Of The Pig

The Fattening Of The Pig is the name of the event that will take place in The Bailey, Ardee Co. Louth on Friday the 12th of June. It's something I came up with in my attempts for raising money to find a cure for poxy Multiple Sclerosis.
So far the bands are - Just Friends
- Cunning Stunts
There will be 5 bands but I'm waiting on confirmation. Also there will be the Roasting of the pig which will be the Traditional spit roasting outside the Bailey, So you can eat a lump of pig to keep you going at the first of its kind in Ardee five or six hour music event. I think it's a great way to raise some money for a good cause plus it'll be a great occasion for people to get together and listen to some deadly local bands and have a laugh. After all isn't that what it's all about. Tickets are $10.00 which will be available soon. All donations will be presented to MS Ireland. It will be like Ardee's version of Woodstock, you never know.

My Blog In The Newspaper

Hubert Murphy of the Drogheda Independent has been following my blog from all the way from Drogheda Ireland. He is seen here with the Minister for the Environment and Green Party leader John Gormley and John Mulligan DI group editor. He has been doing some pieces about the blog which is just great for me. Thank you Hubert, I'm hoping he will have to come to Ardee in June because I'm having a shindig on Friday the 12th of June for MS Ireland. Below is the bit he did from this week.

Wednesday April 15 2009

I'VE been checking out Shane Gorman's blog again and what a great little piece he had in recently. Shane, who lives in New York, wrote that apparently the Obamas visited Ardee on their recent trip to London, where they were amazed to sample the good grub in Sizzlers (nothing new there!) and also the sheer number of pubs on one street!

To honour their visit they decided to erect their own image of Cuchulainn and Ferdia in Central Park and Shane has the picture to prove it!

Record Store Day

This is the one day that all of the independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists in the United States and in various countries across the globe make special appearances and performances. Festivities include performances, cook-outs, body painting, meet & greets with artists, parades, djs spinning records and on and on. Metallica officially kicked off Record Store Day at Rasputin Music in San Franscisco on April 19, 2008 and Record Store Day is now celebrated the third Saturday every April in the U.S

Urinal Observations

For as long as I can remember going to the men's bathroom has always been funny to me.
It's funny because there are certain unspoken rules like you have to look forward for fear of being accused of cock watching, Limited small talk is accepted and it's also funny to me because it reminds me of a load of cows in a row eating out of a troff.
Whats funny to are the many styles that men use for the act of urinating.

The look at me, no hands - Two hands on the hips.
The little tea pot - One hand on beast and one hand on hip.
Your under arrest - Two hands on the wall.
The shuffle - When you need to go but it won't happen and you try to look busy.
The reversible grip - Self explanatory.

I was at the urinal one time and I started to chat to some auld fella and it turns out he knew where I lived in Ireland. When we had finished chatting he didn't wash his hands and then he put his hand out for a hand shake and I did it not to make him feel weird. I nearly got sick.


On our travels to Washington last weekend I was bored on the drive and i was taking pictures of everything I could see. But I spotted the weirdest sign I ever saw that said PULL OF AREA. I didn't really know what the sign was about until we got on a bit further up the road and then I saw the sign for DUNDALK Baltimore and it all became clear, it meant wankers up ahead.
Sorry Anne Campbell of the Dundalk Democrat, It had to be done.

Rescued Dog

I was going to the shop today and i seen a load of people that seemed a wee bit upset.
I went over and this Alsatian dog was flying around the shop car park and jumping in front of cars and he was about to get killed. I ran over and hunkered down low and I managed to get the dog to come close to me and then I grabbed him.
I checked his collar and he had his owners phone number on there. I gave them a call and the owner told me the address so i brought the dog home and locked him in the garden. They where very thankful that i rescued the dog. All in all it was a feel good day.

Deadly people in Yonkers New York

On my quest to find a cure for MS i hit the local bars in Yonkers to see could I get some donations for the six mile Walk MS which is taking place this Sunday. Danny Macs bar which has been my local for many years had a darts night and raised several hundred dollars for MS and I then went to Rory Dolans.
Rory gave a generous donation along with several of the staff that work there.
Also the New York Yankees had the first game of the season and the first game in there new stadium today. Unfortunately they lost against the Cleavland Indians just like the movie Major League. A load of Yankee fans came into the bar after the game and they gave a nice donation also.
Thank you all very much for the donations for it is gratefully appreciated and it just goes to show when times are shite some people are just nice !
Thanks again.

Hit the big time

I really have hit the big time, after meeting the Obamas the other day, Barack gave me a call and told me to get on highway ninty five and go to exit 17 and look out for the bridge. I hadn't got a clue what he was on about. So I hopped in the car and hit the road. With eyes pealed as I drove down the highway, I was wondering what Obama was on about. Then I seen it, like the eight wonder of the world. Barack the egit was so happy with the sausages on Sunday he went and named a bloody road after me. Well I was in shock to say the least !!

Interpol C,mere

I think this is my favorite song off the album "Antics" by Interpol. I think the album came out about 2002. Ive seen Interpol at a festival on Staten Island called Across The Narrows which was a two day music festival with two differant locations. The festival featured deadly bands such as Oasis, New York Dolls and The Killers. Good times !

The elevator

A man walks in to an elevator and there is a beautiful tall blonde woman standing inside. The man takes one look at her and says
" can i smell your vagina "
With a look of disgust and a frown she says
he then replies
"Ah it must be your feet".

Black Toilets

Why does it feel weird to dump in a black toilet ?

Me and the Obamas

Well it has been a roller coaster weekend going to Washington. First of all being invited for Easter breakfast at The White House was just mental. I didn't know should I bring a gift or what. Before leaving I stopped at the local Irish deli and purchased a load of good Irish grub because food is always appreciated.
After the long drive we finally made it, I couldn't believe the amount of security I had to get threw. Finally we got up to the entrance where I was greeted by Michele,Barrack and ex president Bush's wife. It was just mad.
So we all headed into the main lobby and we where escorted towards the kitchen, this is when I knew that stopping at the Irish deli was a good move.
Next thing I pulled out a load of Galtee sausages, black and white pudding,a batch loaf of bread and a load of rashers.Michele was so excited to have some of this lovely Irish stuff. So i said "grab the pan there Michele and we'll get the fry on".
I started of by getting the sausages on and Michelle started buttering the Batch loaf.It was funny because Barrack was just sitting back watching the Eastenders Omnibus edition, it was just like being at home. After about a half hour all was ready for the feast and we got stuck in.
I think Michelle liked the Black pudding the best, as for Barrack, he was buttering up the batch loaf and making sausage sandwich's like they where going out of fashion, It was mad at one stage the butter started dripping down his chin and we all had a great laugh and the craic was Ninety. Soon enough it was time to go and the dream was over but it was a great experience, so we finished up the tay and we had the last few Jaffa Cakes and then i had to go. It was lovely to meet the Obamas i must say. All and all great craic !!
