You might consider only making them available for pick up at the Con. You also could have those attending bring a clothing item to donate to a local charity to help those who require clothing during the winter months and do a swap then.

Ah Stefan, they say good health just affords the opportunity to die more slowly. Keep in mind the scene from Witches of Eastwick, with Jack Nicolson when he is laying on the bed. He is admonished for his drinking, smoking, and poor diet. In true Jack fashion he replies to the criticism of his lifestyle by saying "when I die I want to be sick, not healthy". So tea on. What was the wine? We have what we call "no seeums"-tiny aggravating little flies-like having thousands of Putins buzzing about your face while trying to concentrate on having a good time.

I am sure your dedication and hard work will reap dividends for all attending. Great job Taff. I definitely cannot attend and who knows when I will be able to cross the Atlantic again. Watched ROI humble Scotland in the EUFA Nations League. Many of the key countries appear tired except for Belgium who held a coaching session during their 6-1 win.

Hope everyone is well. Take care everyone. Be safe.

Don

Indeed a mighty task to accomplish-Barry can make a documentary of the person who listens to every disc, reads every note and frames the poster(s). The only problem might be having all involved still breathing. There is a similar Al Stewart set coming at a comparable price. Comparing the two, Horslips never suffered from "wanting to be the next big thing in men wanting to show their sensitive philosophical side syndrome" so outtakes from the lads would be (betting here) much more listenable than out-takes from say Zero She Flies or Bedsitter Images where the finished tracks are still a struggle to comprehend. I love Al Stewart but that is, as is commonly stated "too much information".

Thank you John for the photo's. It was great seeing recent pictures of the lads. What an exciting day for fans! I imagine the run will exhaust itself quickly and they will become collector's item to be sure. Thanks again.

I have never met a bowl of soup that misbehaves. Beets me though. Good question.

I believe I owe you a pint or two still from that pub on Harolds Cross Road. Just watched Don't Look Up - I hope the pandemic will not end that way, too much yet to do!

Winter came roaring in yesterday and last night. Went out for a solo last hike before Christmas and I beat the storm and cold by an hour. When I began the hike it was -2 and calm and when I finished two hours later it was -11 and brisk north winds. At the moment it is -23 with the high being -26 Christmas Day and the low expected to hit -34. Once that wind picked up and I could feel the temperature drop I headed back and glad I did. Shortly you could barely make out the road with the blowing snow. With the snow saw some new visitor prints to the backyard-a coyote, lynx, bobcat, plenty of hares or at least there was at that time, and lots of deer and a covey of ptarmagin strolling about. A real Canadian scene to be sure, at least if you don't live in Vancouver where it rains all winter.

Wishing everyone here a very Happy Christmas and Joyous New Year. I hope JesusMuhammedShivaBhuddaYahweh get this under control-just thought how much that gathering of beings looks like a Welsh persons name!

Peace

Can someone roll this out early this year. We need some cheering up and the board could use a little life. It may be early but if the pandemic has taught us anything it is to not put things off. Do it when you can.

You deserve an encore for your efforts keeping the flame burning. Here is to many more Taff. Best to you and your wife whom one day I hope to have the opportunity to meet.

Tough timing for me. My eldest daughter is getting married a month before (have you received your invitation yet? No? I will be sure to have one sent out as it seems she is inviting anyone with a heartbeat) and as expenses pile up I may have to begin burning my old Celtic Literature text books from uni to keep warm over the winter. One of the deer that frequents my backyard may be "missing" to keep food on the table. I have called it the "Autumn of my daughters contentment".
I would love to get over and if I do I will have to see if I may impose myself on Stefan and his clan. My birthday is six days later so maybe I can use that angle of an early birthday present.
Thanks for your efforts on this and past endeavours, even though I have not and may not be able to attend. I know many look forward to these. Hopefully by then the twelfth wave will be over.

Appreciate your willingness to step into the ring again for the next Con2022. Maybe call it Catch22!

Good to hear the missus is recovering and continuing good vibes sent her way to that end. I am sure a few key players will make an appearance to navigate the ship through what will be a challenging undertaking.

Good on you Taff for taking this on in these challenging and uncertain times.

Will try to make it over depending upon the scheduling of the event. If it is in the late fall or late winter it likely would be a trip I would have to do on my own as my travelling companion is not into damp and cold together. If it's in the summer then we both could do it and make an adventure of it, first stopping in Newfoundland to do our oft-delayed hiking trip to Gros Morne then making it only a 3 hour trip to Ireland from there.

Nice to see some postings here again.

Cheers to all.

Don

I think it is relatively safe to gather here to share stories and remembrances without fear of contracting Covid or its variants. On a happier note Canada tied Mexico 1-1 despite outplaying Mexico, in a world cup qualifier. Only ten teams in 87 years have taken a point playing Mexico at Azeteca Stadium. we are ranked 51 and Mexico 9th. They were lucky to escape with a tie against Canada who remains undefeated thus far in the qualifying round after six games.
