I wonder is that the Fionn I did\'nt go to school with. Ya cant beat the smell of good well worn wellie, love it!

Do ya remember Conn Houliahan? use to have a pint and a bit of chess in mulligans ,poolbeg st, with him sometimes if he was in the humor! The Mac is great for the photos even though the pc has caught up still prefer the Mac for photo stuff plus Cathy dont like them so it keeps her away from the system and Macs like to hang if they get half a chance.
  
Webmaster-Comment: ..ehehehhe.

I often drank with Con around. In Mulligans and in the Scotch House. Never was directly in his company tho. I love his writings and he still writes some columns. He is getting a bit shook now. He is at his best when telling stories from his youth from the Kerry area and talking about nature in general

webbie, I worked in a shop called BACON SHOPS I worked there as a store boy I was 13 at the time, it\'s the 1st shop after the 1st lane on the right side coming from henry st. it\'s a chinese shop now. hav\'nt setup the VOIP stuff yet. mostly e-mail an text comms. love Lough Dan spent a lot of time there over the years.Took 40, 7 to 12 year olds on a 10 day walk from D24 to Glendalough in 86/87? we walked out from D24 and back. the people at lough dan put us up for 2 days, it was a great trip. sometimes I meeet some of the kids and they still talk \'bout it even though they now have kids of their own. we all got a cert from Pat ingoldsbury, Pats hat/Patschat? I cant remember the shows name he had a kids programe on tv back then, do you remember him. I saw him the last I was in 01 selling his poetry an talking to people on the street, a great man!
  
Webmaster-Comment: ...probably knew that shop........now yer codding us with yer age......yer not in yer 90's.
Was in Lough Dan a few times with the great-great-great grandkids. Ya might remember one of them - Fionn MacCumhaill. He became famous afterwards.
Pat Ingoldsby - yes. A great character. Brilliant at observing human life. Dont see him now at all and I fear he may be confined to house. Read an article one day he wrote about his observations in the city centre and he captured quite clearly some of my own obs including the "women with the Guineys bags". It struck a note with me.
He didnt have much regard for money. Just needed a few bob to keep him going.
....Slan go foill.

Liz, I forgot, I lived on ballyfermot drive, it\'t between the church round about an the roundabout ath the county bar. We moved there when I was 6 months old, we used to live on the coombe we got the house when they were clearing and knockind down the old coombe tenements. a 2 bedroom house with 1 toilet, after a while there was 5 boys an 5 girls & mam an dad. I have 4 kids and they used complain cause we only had a 4 bedroom house with 3 bathrooms, So then i\'d give them the fairy tales of Ireland an that would shut them up fast!

Hi Liz, enjoy the babt sitting. I used go up the pillar a few times a week in 1963 on me lunch time, I worked in Moore st just round the corner. Bray head was good in the summer, up there a few times also, never got on the chairs, wonder are they still working. Did you ever go to the Hellfire club?

I used to bring youth club and scout leaders on navagition and mountain craft an stuff like that training in the hills round dublin an wicklow. The night training was good fun! It\'s a pity they blew up the pillar could have took yor man off it an put one of ours up there. Did you see the new yoke they have in it\'s place now? A big steel spike with blue lights much bigger than the piller! Dont know what to think \'bout it, very modern, maybe thats a bit of what 01 needs sure it\'s there now wonder how long it\'ll last. Will ya tell Steph ,webbie an meself are only waffeling like ould dubs will.

Hmmm...Maguey worms or any other kind of worms, I don\'t mean to disparage any other culture\'s cuisine, but I\'m not cooking that. Don\'t you cook it either, Steph.

Come to think of it, aren\'t Mexicans a little obsessed with worms? They have that little worm they put in bottles of Tequila...I don\'t know why they do that. He even has a name, \"Jose Cuervo,\" and they sing lots of songs about him, and the person who empties the bottle gets to eat him. Hmmm. Very peculiar custom.

Good Morning, Steph. Good night, Liz.

Pat
  
Webmaster-Comment: ....they are nutritious..........I've tried them mixed with "hairy mollies" and they are excellent. If you dont try them you wont be able to judge them....

Maguey worms a Mexican specialty

are popular in the state of Hidalgo where maguey grows abundantly. The worms were sold in cocoons on the street until a few years ago. Today this dish is

considered to be a delicacy. Heat 1 cup oil in a thick skillet and fry worms until crisp. Remove and drain on paper towels. Heat 4 cups oil in a deep saucepan or

deep fryer. Press tortillas in a mesh strainer and fry one by one until they become crisp and take the shape of the strainer. Drain well on paper towels. To serve

place a little ball of masa on each of 8 plates and put tortilla \"baskets\" on top pressing to fix in place. Fill tortillas with worms. Garnish with lime slices and flowers.

Serve with guacamole and green sauce. This appetizer is good with tequila or pulque. The worms can also be used as a taco stuffing. Makes 8 servings.
