Aretha Franklin

Aretha Franklin in Blues Brothers

Probably the best way to remember Aretha Franklin is with her music. Here she is doing a fantastic rendition of “Think” in the classic film “Blues Brothers” She might be gone, but her music will live on.

Lighting Inspiration Wanted

I’ve been in my house now for about 18 months. Of course there are still things I need to do, but for the most part there’s nothing “pressing”.  One thing, however, has been bugging me a little. Lighting. While I sorted out the lighting in the main areas of the house fairly quickly, I’ve still […]

Enjoying Vintage Steam in Stradbally

This weekend was a bank holiday and the weather was pretty good, if a little overcast. So I thought I’d head over to Stradbally to the annual steam rally. The event runs over two days and is held in fields outside Stradbally.  And I took my camera (no, not my phone camera – an actual […]

Maybe It’s Time To “Cull” My T-Shirts

I wear t-shirts most of the time. I sometimes wear shirts, but I’m generally more comfortable in t-shirts. So over the years I’ve amassed quite a large number of geeky, funny, weird t-shirts, as well as a reasonable number of t-shirts from specific events. While some of the t-shirts are fun / cool. Others are […]

AIB Irony

AIB is one of Ireland’s largest banks. I use it for my personal banking, while the company also uses them for pretty much everything. I’ve had my issues with them in the past. Most recently their rather “nutty” handling of phone calls has really peeved me. You can read more about this here. Short version […]

AIB Take Logic To New Low

Both my personal and business credit cards are with AIB. From time to time credit card services need to contact me. Unfortunately a lot of the calls I get from them and other parts of the bank come from a blocked number ie. I cannot see who is calling me when I answer the call […]
