70th Anniversary of the UN Declaration of Human Rights.

Monday 10th December was the anniversary of the UN Declaration of Human Rights which was declared in December 1948. They are good principles to live by but its a shame that nearly all governments just pay lip service to them. Don’t think the world as such has progressed a lot since 1948. Here’s two short videos to explain them to you. See whether you believe your country measures up.

France Wins the World Cup.

Aah yes the World cup has drawn to a close and France has come out the victor after  beating the opposition  Croatia 4-0 in Moscow.  You could say the turning point(for France)  in the match was the penalty they got for the hand ball incident it was a bit harsh and really didn’t look like it was deliberate, however France managed to get two more goals to put the result beyond doubt. It wasn’t the most exciting of matches but credit most be given to Croatia for getting all the way to World cup final. The tournament as a whole was good and was a big promotion for Russian tourism which has opened up a good way. Its a pity that Ireland (republic 26) didn’t manage to get to Russia, I say that the population as a whole would have had a pretty time. Maybe next time .

Ireland (ROI) Soccer team disappoints.

Just taking note of Tuesday nights match between Ireland and Denmark (Ireland lost 5-1). Only saw the second half of the match but it was a very disappointing performance from the Republic’s soccer team, they seemed rudderless without a sense of direction and gave away easy goals to Denmark. They held in Copenhagen but why did they go to bits in Dublin ? It was a shocking performance to put on for a home crowd, who were expecting to be booking places for Russia next summer some hope of that now. It looked like the soccer squad hadn’t did their homework and it showed. They had a easy group to qualify from and made a mess of it and left it all to the very end to do. Don’t think one should expect a lot from this soccer squad in the future.

Gazing at the Moon.

Decided to write a few lines on the old blog here. Its been a few weeks since the last blog post, nothing much to write about except that i was on holidays for a week there at the start of august, Costa del sol very nice but was a bit too hot for me. i stayed in the hotel most of the time then the Irish bars all playing English football on there big tv’s. It had been sixteen years since I last took a holiday so it was bit different for me.

Don’t think i will take as long as that again to have my next holiday.

Nothing much happening just those hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico or the Caribbean, wouldn’t do to get in the way there. I guess it disapproves the climate change deniers the fact that the vast numbers that make up humanity are having a profound influence  on the climate of the earth. Will be back writing on the blog soon, take care in the meantime.

On a “Spar” car park

Here’s one thing that happened to me lately, was shopping in local spar store where I bought this “chicken” on a stick, I have forgotten the right name for it. I proceeded to eat it whilst in the car park of the store and a small bit went down my windpipe, I started to gag and choke and looked toward a man parked alongside for help. However the man was oblivious to my situation and proceeded to drive off, leaving me still gagging I managed to cough it up and my situation quickly reverted back to normal. I couldn’t believe the attitude of this man who was parked alongside who wouldn’t help and just left me to my own devices and drove off. You could say no one cares anymore  but i haven’t come across many situations like this, I’m glad I didn’t need this man’s help. Will take smaller nibbles in future.
