swiss docs

Waiting for an X-ray in the Swiss Doctors surgery and i turn around and look at the wall... it has a lot of scary things on it. The scariest of them all was the drill with the saw on it... bloody Swiss...

pop up tent

With the Scouts off to Switzerland next week, we needed a new tent for one of our leaders. I couldn't help but suggest and eventually tracked down a nice new pop up tent! It is pretty sweet and yes, its it does pop up once you open it. It took me a while to get the hang of folding it up again, with several attempts ending up with a complete pitched tent again!

Have a look at the video here

next purchase

I have decided I need a new camera. My old one, dating back to the late 2003 is grand and all, but I need something with a bit more... umph!

Mind you my HP Photosmart 735 has done good these last 2 ½ years. Back in the day it wasn't too shabby at all, and i got it at a nice price as well, under €€200 if i can remember. The one bad thing about it is the battery life, but i got over that fairly fast by buying rechargeable ones! Duh!

Any ideas?

who said that

I'm back again... from what I'm going to call sabbatical. (or have I used that excuse already?) A month in Kandersteg, Switzerland will do funny things to you!! Altho I really liked the newly installed WiFi there! It encouraged me to be online, it's a pitty it didn't have any affect on my blogging urge! I will post a few posts about the previous month when I get around to it.

For now, I'm enjoying the easy life! Nothing much to do for now except get ready for Camp on the 20th! 10 days... feck!

Talk to you when I have some interesting things to say... eh?

the wedding

Ciara Crowley & John O'Mahony
They were married today in St. Patricks Church, Rochestown. Altho it said 1.30pm on the invite and all the leaflets (is that the right word?) she didn't show up until 2pm!! We were wondering if John was going to make a run for it!

It all went off without a hitch, except for my cousin Barry giving out the wrong flowers to the groomsmen and female members of the grooms family!! But all was sorted in the end. Oh and the weather was shite. It rained all day and it was rotten. When you book your wedding for the 8th of July, you kinda expect at least a sunny day!

I also got to wear my new suit today as well. Doesn't he look well?

But the highlight one of the highlights of the day was the chocolate fountain at the reception. Comon! How can you loose allowing your guests at one of these! There was a choice of profiteroles, marshmallows and strawberries!! If only it wasn't guarded by the people who they got it from, I'd of climbed up and stuck my tongue under it. Funnily enough, the chocolate was cold... I still don't understand how it's kept flowing considering its bloody cold!!

Modern technology eh?
