Go Outside Web & eCommerce

Thanks for being sound – Murphy Cycles!

Sometimes people are more helpful and kind than they need to be. I think when a business is new or small or struggling, the people working there are more inclined to make efforts and compromises in order to make a sale, be it of their services or a product. One can be headstrong and not budge on anything but in the long run, my hope and belief is that it pays off to go the…

Dublin Coffee Culture – The Fumbally and Tamp & Stitch

Dublin coffee culture is changing. I’m an avid coffee lover and although i don’t know everything about it i know what i like and spent a bit of time in Australia working as a barista. I have two new favourite places for coffee in dublin. And i think they’re getting busier all the time so they probably don’t need me writing about them, but just in case you haven’t been yet. The first is the…

Gift Ideas for Men / Boyfriends / Husbands

If you’re on a small budget, always go with thoughtful. Spending lots of money is much too easy, showing the person you know them and you care and you’ve been listening is what’s more important. I work with BootsJeansandLeathers.com, so i am biased in suggesting this, but we sell great mens boots (among other things for great men) and we can help pick you out a pair for the right reasons.

Arghghghrharg – Mr. Quinn – This is not ok.

I like paying taxes. I think it’s cool. It means every hour i work, something goes back into our country as a whole. Maybe a couple os less than productive rogues slip through the social welfare net and get more than they should but overall, i’m glad i pay taxes. In theory.

The Stability / Fiscal Treaty – Vote Yes or Vote No?

When it comes to politics and voting i always feels like i missed the first half of whatever happened and as a result don’t have a notion what’s going on. And then there’s the language and terminology involved. I could be reading for a week. I was compelled to begin research to help me decide by one poster in particular. It vaguely states ‘Secure Ireland’s future, vote yes.’ That got me right bothered because the statement you’d be…

Things to Do in Dublin Tonight 8 May 2012

  There is something very lovely and interesting going on in Dublin tonight. The MGM or monthly general meeting, curated by Nial Conlon and Shane Langan, has been running for a few months. I’ve been to them all i think and each time it’s such a unique experience that i can’t miss the next one. The thing about it that doesn’t change (so far anyways) is the atmosphere. It feels like home though i can’t…
