Big SisterAn alternative dissidents glass box/forum, now there's a thought. Eddie rarely posts anyway; I always thought a blog was an online journal where a person posts about whatever they wish, and others occasionally comment. This PM 'blog' is more a forum/bulletin board where people discuss issues and Eddie comments just occasionally. It's the PM Forum.

For a minute there I suspected you might be Anglo-Irish perish the thought! ;-) But my fault, I must be more precise in future.16. I guess that's what I was meaning to say!18. Well yes, it all comes in across the country that must remain nameless first.

I know see where you were coming from and agree that it would be rather good if they ignored the political boundary and included a report on the weather over the whole island of Ireland. They sometimes mention Enniskillen, which isn't too far from here and I always find it very helpful when they do.

I slipped up writing Ulster instead of NI, a slip of the fingers in haste, I regret. My point was, and you surely knew that, that Ireland is ignored in weather forecasts by the BBC, which on other occasions gives the weather for France, Spain etc. I'm not saying that Ireland should be included in the British weather forecast as part of Britain, but that it is rude to ignore a country that close, without even putting a name to it. For amorphous read anonymous. OK now? It just strikes me as rather mean spirited to have a mass of land that as far as weather forecasts are concerned doesn't exist. 7. Lady Sue, no need for your hackles to rise, or did you not get what I was saying because of the unfortunate use of Ulster instead of Northern Ireland? There needs to be an 'irony' icon here so people don't get the wrong end of the stick. I'm with the Irish as I thought you were well aware.

O well, we just gently 'rustle' up some more AM stories:The draught has resulted in a 60 per cent drop in hay yields this year, with many farmers already feeding cattle on hay due to a shortage (!) of grass. The result is a sharp rise in the price of hay, which will eventually be passed on to the customer through the price of beef etc. Many horse owners will also have an unpleasant surprise when they try to get supplies for this winter.

It's not Ulster. It's Northern Ireland. But that's a common misconception with those who haven't bothered to educate themselves with the geography and history.And it's not amorphous. It's very defintely 'morphous' and consists of the three other counties of Ulster and the further three provinces of Munster, Connaught and Leinster. For want of a better description you can call it the Republic of Ireland or the Irish Republic. Did you really not know all that?
