Smokin! The government are making noises again about banning smoking in all workplaces including pubs:

Minister to ban smoking in all public houses and restaurants

By Eithne Donnellan, Health Correspondent

An outright ban on smoking in pubs and restaurants is to be announced today by the Minister for Health, Mr Martin. The ban, which will cause outrage among publicans and smokers alike, will be announced at the launch in Dublin of a report on the ill-effects on health of passive smoking in the workplace.

Hopefully they will do something about it – I’ve just been having a cup of tea with two smoking colleagues and the stink off me. Yeuchh

Lotto Life

Lotto life So we have yet to win the lotto. In the meantime, it breaks my heart that the bank are charging me 28c everytime I undertake an online transaction. Can you believe the stingy shits charge me to use my time and resources to do their work. When I win the lotto I am going to set up my own bank…
AND it still takes three days to process a Visa payment made online. Good jesus!

Cus I can

Cus I can Just got an e-mail from my cousin Aoife – she is a photographer and is a bit miffed that one of my seriously amateur and really quite bad quality pix was published in the Irish Times last week. In her shoes, (or should I say behind her lens) I would be seriously miffed at me too but can I help it if I have connections…?

Beck off

Beck off There were 3 – THREE!!! – “news” stories about David Beckham in the Examiner today. For all journos reading this – a footballer in an ad for a soft drink or any other product is not news. Mind you neither is Zoe Ball’s marital status but I still read about it.
