provisional license holders – save the planet?!!

This week – the irish government copped on with regard to provisional liscense holders in banning almost 450,000 from our roads – good thing – drastic – but good – then sort of changed their mind – until June 2008?!!

Typically irish, but we elected and pay them. This indymedia article probably explains the muppets decision better. Well, me & my mate George [pictured above] found a solution for you Minister Dempsey.

No tax, no insurance, no license, no carbon emissions & even trevor & my friend George have one. One might laugh, but there is a lot more logic in a bicycle. Next up – wind power… hmmm? or have we had enough of that for one week?

tesco, country crest & the fingal vintage society

I took this picture today at the Fingal Vintage Society Classic Car Show. The event, delayed due to weather conditions was rescheduled from July to September and rainfall overnight almost cancelled the gig again.

But the Hoey family [applause] having donated the use of their land to the community again weren’t to be totally disappointed [apart from the odd wheel skid?!]. Their display, to promote Tesco Irelands use of their Country Crest and other Irish brandsonce again was something to be proud of.

Whilst the sun did come out, it’s a pity that the sun didn’t shine in France today over Eddie O’ Sullivan

silver medal winning 'no rubber-soul'

I just received a copy of the irish entrepreneur magazine [july/ august issue] with a delightful picture of our garden on page 58 from bloom in the park. The pictures for this were taken by Maura Hickey who on the wednesday before the June Bank Holiday event took an absolute smashing picture for the Irish Examiner newspaper. Funnily enough one of the first ever publications I featured in was entitled ‘getting dirty’ in The irish entrepreneur way back in March 2004. It can be really difficult at times to get PR especially for bulding a garden so to Maree Morrissey of the Irish Magazine a great big thanks!

To those of you who will see the picture I know it’s not what a garden designer should look like [?] but it is a good picture and one I know Ms. Hickey is quite proud of. This was also VIP night for Bord Bia the organisers of the event so hence the black tie theme – just in case you start to believe we build every garden dressed like that!
