Ireland voted for marriage equality 60 plus % Yes. People wonder how such a Catholic country could so ignore the controlling churchmen. Well the reason is we were always more a Christian place than an ultra controlled Spanish style militaristic one.
Many know I’ve researched gas BBQ’s these last few years. Now I’ve viewed and lusted after contraptions that could feed a multitude, and looks more complex that a ships bridge. But sanity took over. I now have a dual burner 20 x 13 and a bit incher. It will fit 10 big steaks, more than enough to do me. I’ve BBQed a spatchcocked chicken that took and hour on low with one burner. It was OK, nothing to write home about really. But I did a bit of Rump steak (sirloin in US money) that was sublime. Cooked to a turn, cut-able with a spoon and just a joy.
How does one live most of ones life and not be that bothered with being bitten by flies, mozzies and assorted pests to suddenly become a sore blotchy target. I have tea tree & manuka oil for the after bite, and I have the citronella wrist band. It only seems to encourage them. Kimberley mentioned lemons on the bites, didn’t have them, but did have limes and they take the irritation for a good few hours. But what’s reeeeeeeEEEly annoying is I wear hats. I took to them a few years ago when I realised the light travels down the lense of my glasses when I put the camera to my eye. I did have baseball caps, but the peak on them is too hard and I end up reversing them which defeats the idea. Any-hoos, the brim of the hat acts as a visor. BUT, both my hats have vent holes. 4 little holes surrounded by those brass snaps like you see on high-end jeans. those holes are doors for biting scum to get at my head. B%^*&$(*.
Oscar Romero created Blessed by Pope Francis. He was shot dead by a sniper as he celebrated Mass in a hospital chapel on 24 March 1980. There are many cultural Catholics that removed themselves from direct church attendance after his assassination. And not because of the killing, but due to Rome’s reaction and John-Paul 2 who was seen to swing in behind the killers.
