    Eithne Shortall

    Irish families are spending more of their income on alcohol than any other country in the EU, according to an analysis of the household budgets of the 27 member states.

    Any man who afflicts the human race with ideas must be prepared to see them misunderstood. - H.L. Mencken

    Ole Family story.....

    My Grandma McKim was a very quiet woman who rarely said anything other than dinner is ready and her kin was from the hills.....

    She up and comes up with that joke one day.
    I use it whenever I get the chance in memory of her.
    ;D
