NI Cancer Fund for Children


Just to let you know of a worthy way to earn interest on your money – AND do a good turn at the same time. The Northern Bank Charity Saving Bond is donating loads of money to the Northern Ireland Cancer Fund for Children – we did the campaign that’s out at the moment. So do yourself and others a favour and pop some of your hard-earned into the account. But hurry, offer closes end of March.


Marathon Men

This place is full of marathon men and women at the moment. Some have their eyes set on New York. Others on Dublin. And many more on Belfast. There’s even talk of crazy half-marathons in Donegal and the BUPA run in the Phoenix Park. I have no idea how we’ve all become so health-conscious of late – we’ve even cut out the Pickled Onion Monster Munch crisps at lunchtime. However, just to warn all my co-Belfast Marathon relay runners, there may be a need to call someone off the sub’s bench if my knees keep creaking and popping the way they are at present.

Running the 2008 Country Music Marathon

* This isn’t us – but we’ll look just as silly in a few months’ time.

Chondromalacia of the patella

* I’ve got two of these. Neither one is working properly. Any suggestions?

Sounds like Subbuteo to me


One of our chaps here has recently revealed his penchant for little plastic footballers. In fact, if you scour ebay you’ll probably find his little Subbuteo shop. (Actually, it’s probably a Subbuteo superstore by now, situated just off the ring road that encircles the city of Ebay-opolis.)

Anyway, while searching for an old Nightmares on Wax CD in the loft the other night, guess what I discovered? Yes, the perfect soundtrack to accompany hours of finger-propelled fun. 

There aren’t too many of these around. Wonder how much I’ll get for it on ebay? (Nudge, nudge – wink, wink.)
