    How not to make friends and influence people, South Circular Road:


    .

    How to get people to not sit on your bench, Finglas. FFS! Give the old folk a plain green traditional bench to sit on. Don't embarrass them away by calling it a bleeden "Buddy Bench".

    Hurry while stocks last. Great add by Butlers Tyres Harold's Cross.

    This is my left hand:



    Until recently I thought the single crease across the palm was just a curiosity. Like my ability to wriggle my ears, together or one at a time.
    That was until it was mentioned in a book I was reading ("I am Pilgrim" by Terry Hays. Don't bother, its not that good).

    It seems it is a fusion of the head and heart line and is used as a diagnostic tool to identify babys with various syndromes including Downs Syndrome. It is commonly associated with such syndromes but is very unusual otherwise, and I venture to say it is even more rarer in the ear waggling community.

    It is called a Simian Crease and is so called because all Monkey, Chimpanzee and Apes hands have that crease, a fact which my better half says "explains a lot", whatever that is supposed to mean!

    I am sure you are dying to hear more about my ear-waggling talent. Well my most memorable performance was over 30 years ago now.
    My soon to be better half and I were in a Gaelic speaking music playing group of her friends, and being neither Gaelic speaking or music playing I was beginning to feel somewhat inadequate. I suppose it must have been the Guinness that made me think that what was needed to make the evening complete was a display of ear waggling complimented by my minor talents of eyebrow raising (think of Spock on speed) lip curling and a challenge to the stunned gathering to " lets see ya best that"!
    Luckily our relationship survived and after I promised never to unveil any other hidden talents without first checking with her she did admit my display was impressive in a surreal sort of way.
    Well I think that is more than enough for now........but I bet by now you have all checked your palms and tried to wriggle your ears.

    Lovely collection... particularly like the smiley blob. My eyes hurt after looking at the Buddy Bench,
    “ We cannot withdraw our cards from the game. Were we as silent and mute as stones, our very passivity would be an act. ”
    — Jean-Paul Sartre
