A LITTLE SOMETHING TO MAKE YOU SMILE
London Rose Clare felt so much at home/When she was crowned champion in Tralee's big dome/Then parties parades, fashions and frolics/No wonder some said it was some load of...amazing people.
Anyone claiming Clonmel is untidy is talking rubbish and that's official. A recent survey gave us a clean bill of health while Portlaoise and Tallaght are tipheads and not to be confused with our own hurling, Tipp heads. Streets are so un-littered in Clonmel that many locals can now wear their slippers when going shopping or strolling around and keep their shoes and boots for about the house. Such is the feeling of pride at our ascendancy that councillors are considering a name change to Cleanmel. Chances of continuing these high standards are excellent because who the hell wants to live in Dirtmel? Now, what about a reduction in Dirt tax.
I wonder was Neil Armstrong over the moon to be first man on it?
With Chelsea after spending so much money on their team is it any wonder they have a Czech minding the goal.
Now that Elin Nordegren has left Tiger and taken his money she can fill in the time by taking up golf. In no time at all she will be so competent and confident that she will be able to do what her ex was so good at –play a round.
Great to see Hip-Hop singer, Wyclef Jean hasn't given up on his ambition to be Haitian president. As a roving bast... sorry, ambassador he has done well but wouldn't it be great to hear him sing the budget and tax-hike lyrics each year. Our own leader is a noted crooner too and I'm sure that December's budget to the tune of 'A Boulavogue' would set the right tone for the battle to follow.
Mention of hip prompts the following: Hip hip hooray, hip hip hooray/I'm getting a new hip delivered today/A new metal ball/and then I won't fall/With a new hip I'll feel fit to hop round each day.
Weir's Watches are to commission a limited edition gentleman's wrist watch to retail at 250,000euros. A wrist watch the price of a house, shouldn't that be risk watch? The old maxim 'time is money' is certainly true here.
What they didn't say this week: 'I think it's completely immoral that almost four thousand people paid no tax on their income last year' -Ivor Callely.

"Golf is a lot of walking, broken up by disappointment and bad arithmetic"
MAN OF THE PEOPLE
Golf might still be perchieved as a country club game in some quarters, but the man who'll likely be remembered as the game's greatest champion has shown his blue collar roots with some memorable victories. As of 2008, Tiger Woods had won three U.S. Open Championships, and all three were on public courses - Pebble Beach, Bethpage Black, and Torrey Pines. All are open to anyone.
