NEW BLOG!!!

10 05 2013

After years of smoking and reviewing cigars I have finally decided to bite the bullet and start a blog dedicated to these tubes of dried, fermented leaves and the pleasure they provide.

If you would be interested in reading about my experiences as cigar smoker than you can find my new blog “Tales from the humidor” here.

Happy Smoking!

 





Excited!!!

30 07 2012

In case you didn’t guess from the title of this post I am excited.

Not only have we finally decided on the date for the “Big Day” next year but we have also settled on a venue.

This would be exciting in and of itself but the venue we have decided upon has an added nerd factor which has just tipped me over the edge.

Not for us some faceless registry office or lack-lustre hotel function room, nope we are getting married at a mother fricking observatory!!!

Yeah you heard it an observatory, say something.

Now before you think I have just steamrollered C into this I will point out that this particular observatory happens to be built into a beautiful 16th century castle so there is still something for the ladies;)

 

The facility in question is the Blackrock Castle Observatory here in Cork and will manage to offer a quaint fairytale element to the wedding whilst still letting me drool over that 16″ Meade reflector

Sign of the times

I snapped this in Manhattan about 6 years ago.

Nothing special about the pic, I just really liked the way the Fallout Shelter sign seems to glow as if irradiated. Kind of ironic really.

Glandore at night

Quick snap I took at Glandore last time I was driving back from the pub. Sober I might add, I was playing taxi. 😉





New York City Igloo

18 07 2012

 

In February 2006 I was staying with some relatives in Brooklyn Heights, NYC.
We went to bed with relatively ok weather, cold but nice and dry. The next morning though was something else all together  – there had been well over 18 inches of snow during the night and for someone from London it was quite frankly magical.

The next day I took a walk into Manhattan and found this quite frankly crazy guy making himself an igloo out in the street in SoHo.

Another oldie here. I was messing around in the garden just snapping away at random flowers…don’t I know how to live the high life!
