Happy St Patricks Day to all you Irish ( and non Irish) lucky to be out there in Spain.

Indeed. Happy St Patrick's Day, even if we might be celebrating it a couple of days late.

But then, if it means I can have more Guinness tonight, who am I to complain?

Sláinte,

Mark.

Hi, Tired,

Has she said anything about it closing? Apparently, Carlsberg reckon they can only afford to run one brewery in the UK and it's between Leeds and Northampton (I think). By all accounts, despite the loss of jobs, Leeds City Council are lobbying Carlsberg to shut the Leeds one down as the brewery is right in the middle of a lot of the redevelopment work going on. Who needs jobs (and beer!) when you can have yet more city centre apartments and a load more bars and restaurants? Like we don't have more than enough of all of those!

As for the accented letters, etc, as I don't have a Spanish keyboard (yet), I copied and pasted the ones I need onto a a "scratch pad" on my google sidebar. Then, as and when I need them, I copy and paste them into the blog/post/whatever.

These have served me well thus far.

Mark.

Ah Candyfloss and NFM, I'm touched by your sentiments...............

Hybrid, She works in the laboratory and while hasn't mentioned anything about it closing, I know there has been a lot of unrest and uncertainty about jobs there. To be honest, she talks so much I let it all go over my head. She lives in Normanton and I have been over quite a few times and really love Leeds and the surrounding areas. By the way, you are far too computer literate for me . I can just type and hit "Post Reply".

 

Helen

Hi Helen

I am guessing that as it has taken 2 days for you to respond, it must have been a good one.

We won't be far from you on Saturday - flying visit to Drogheda.

Noreen

Hi Helen

Don't worry, you'll soon get the hang of the bucket. It's quite fun when you get it. Took me about 6 months. But don't go too mad and keep it it in the bucket thread or we get a slapping LOL. 

Got to ask, what are you tired of waiting for? Or did I miss a thread?? Sorry attention span of a goldfish

Noreen, my Mum lives in Bettystown, about 5 miles from Drogheda. I know Drogheda very well. Hope you have a lovely visit to our neck of the woods............

Candyfloss, Not gettin g into the bucket thing............. leave that you you. Tired of Waiting seemed a good name at the time I started posting. Put down a deposit on apt in 2002 that was never built. Transferred over to a different build by same developer which is only just finished and we are due to complete end of April - but at least its built, this time !!!!

Helen
