    Any others here do a conversion job themselves? We took the maiden voyage in our own this weekend, still a van for now, but I’ll sus layouts etc over the summer before converting for next year. Had a few days up around Doolin, cliffs of moher boat tour, parochial house, the usual spots...

    Lockdown Hobbies!!

    So, now that we're starting to see an end in sight, what's been your secret weapon to get you through lockdown? I've thrown myself into guitar - self taught, playing 25+ years - started taking lessons via skype and doing music theory lessons myself online. Have been working from home the whole...

    Any Proccers headed for Ballyshannon?

    Next weekend, music, booze and perhaps a little something to relax the body and mind as well 😃 Been threatening to make the pilgrimage for years, finally doing it. How the auld lad will cope in a tent for the weekend is another story.

    Cotto or Alvares?

    Well lads who do ye fancy. Would love to see Cotto take it, but I think Canelo will make a statement tonight about his well deserved position in world boxing and the lb for lb rankings and dominate the fight getting a stoppage inside 7/8 rounds. Cotto is a warrior and I've always loved...

    What was your first guitar?

    The thread about crowleys got me thinking about when I started playing - what were other musically inclined proccers first guitars? I played my auldfellas acoustic originally, a lovely Yamaha that he still has, must be nearly 40 years old at this stage, lovely rich tone and still my favourite...

    Remember when WUMS used to be good?

    I miss those days. A bit of thought went into the windups. Not just the mindless drivel that goes on these days.

    So who here trains with kettlebells....

    And if not, then why not! Seriously, I can't understand why every athlete in the country doesn't incorporate these into their training schedule. The workouts are short, and the benefits are insane - power, strength, speed, stamina, cardio - everything can be improved in quite a short time...

    Nothing in life comes easy.....

    Train hard and the results will come. There's nothing sweeter than the taste of victory, or accomplishing a goal that you've been working towards for a while.

    Anybody here have any experience with Wimax

    I'm moving house soon, and they're 7mb package for only 35 a month seems quite tempting......supposed to be low contention rates.....compared with the 60 I'm paying vodafone a month for the same speed (which to be fair I usually get between 6 and 7mb/s on speedtests) is it worth changing to...
