Customer Parking Only

The Organic Shop in Douglas Cork obviously has problems with non-customers parking in front of the shop. Why else would they put a wheel clamp on prominent display next to their warning sign? Lucky for us we were buying something ..

Trolleys

Trolleys

Trolleys outside Quinnsworth Tesco in Douglas last weekend. There’s such manic building going on in Douglas right now it’s a nightmare for any driver trying to get around the place. Hopefully it won’t last too much longer but they seemed to be digging up the carpark there for ages. Now it’s on to the road with bored signallers waving traffic on or stopping it as their mood dictates.

Irish rugby was rubbish in 2007

Irish rugby player Ronan O’Gara was the face of Samsung and many other brands this year. Apparently Samsung announced that their sales dropped because of their association with the hapless team. 😉

“We had no idea how poorly he would play,” continued the Samsung spokesperson. “Not just Ronan, but the whole team. In hindsight the ‘I’m converted’ caption is quite embarrassing because his conversion record in the World Cup was shite. We’re quite disappointed with Ronan, not only did he let himself and the country down, but he let us, a multi-billion dollar company, down as well.”
