Rock band Hell on Earth to feature a live suicide at their forthcoming concert in St. Petersburg, Florida. A tad extreme, no?

From the Phoenix Magazine.....

"Staff in Castlebar tourist office were bemused recently by a complaint from a Northern couple about the standard of the caravan park they had stayed in the night before. It was crowded, they said, dogs were running wild, there was only one outside cold water tap and they were charged EUR50 for the night. Explaining the location, they said there was some sort of complex of houses in the middle of the caravan park. It took only a short while for the staff to realise that the couple had been guided into the halting site along the main ring road which circles the town. They were advised not to seek a refund of their EUR50 but to write it off as the price of experience."

A worthwhile website: RipOffIreland.org - Your Guide to Rip Off Ireland. Things are so bad here now that even prices in Sweden and Finland don't seem so expensive any more - and that's saying something.

Check out this great Icelandic rainbow photo. Beautiful.
Apologies for the paucity of posts. Its one of those stupid realities for the type of job I'm in - take two weeks off and then spend the next few weeks doing (unpaid) overtime to try and catch up....In the meantime - check out my fotolog for some holiday snaps.

Gone for two weeks and the place is in a heap - Blogrolling and comments seem to be out of action - and in the real world it's much the same.....

Well I'm back from holidays - a few days in Stockholm then Helsinki and a week in Estonia, punctuated by a few mad ferry trips. I cannot say it was very relaxing - as I was 6 days into it before I had a night where I was in bed before 3:00 am, but it was definitely a fun holiday.
