A friend in Canada has sent me an e-mail with 100 live concerts on it dating from the late 1960's up to last year. Featured artists include Amy Winehouse, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Simon and Garfunkel, Amy McDonald? Bruce Springsteen, Presley, Rolling Stones and even Led Zeppelin from 1970 amongst 90 others (all top notch performers).

There's about a fortnight's viewing in it ( allowing for food and loo breaks) if that floats your boat.
Top notch footage and viewing...

Anyone who fancies it should PM me with e-mail address and I'll forward it when I get a chance.

Meanwhile the oul' BoI shares catapulted to 14c today (up from 10.6 at purchase).....The light that Baldy Noonan is waffling about, in terms of tunnels, is in fact the bar/restaurant car on the gravy train opening for business.....We're back......

Bank of Ireland are marginally above 10c tonight. Any middling upswing would of course show healthy profit. Could one "get on" here in a sort of a spread bet, where you collect for points/cents gained and pay for reversals in a similar fashion. Surely to Christ the arxe can't fall out of them altogether.....

Any opinions.

I bought these at 10.6c. They appear to have stalled at 14c. I have a paper profit of €300 odd. I could tax the car with it, although the oul' car tax is only necessary during the championship (The Hyde, McHale Park)....
Should I offload now or await developments??? Every cent they gain represents €94 ......Money for old rope.....or... Suspect

If p is right

Option a keep them and make circa 250k
Option b is sell them buy back 50,000 shares using your 1300 odd as margin in a cfd account
Each time the share price doubles you close your position capitalise the gain then reinvest at double the exposure. You maintain about 40 percent margin on average.
If p is right by the time the share price reaches 25euro you have 5m shares worth €125m .
The downside with this is that if the share price went from 25m to nothing you would lose the €50m cash gain you had and you would be in hock to the cfd provider for €75m.

Though something like this would never happen to a street wise codger from the BMW region.

By the time they reach €25 I'll be well dead. If they reach €2.50 in my time I'll be amazed...Still it's an interesting scenario you have
un-veiled...The fookin' things will never break €2 in the next 5 years or will they?

The en-suite shower continued to dribble water onto the base despite the shower being turned off.
This has been a recurring feature of said shower for the past 3/4 days. I disconnected various sections of the unit but nada..Drip drip.

Exasperated, I summoned The Crane who arrived in 20 mins resplendant in overalls with toolbox.

He proceeded to dismantle the front casing (very black looking to my eye) disconnected various electrical components, re-connected same to no gainful result before proclaiming "Meester Boxty I think she is fooked"...The solonoid is boll**ed.
He proceeds to disconnect said solonoid and displays problem (not releasing)....Prods with skinny screwdriver, blows into, sucks out of, taps with bigger screwdriver, sighs, lights a very smelly cigarette and re-installs....Sometime Boxtee you know never....

Switch her on again and BOOM....The Crane knocks her out of the park....What a fooking guy....
As transactions of this nature aren't fiscal issues hereabouts, I fed him a large Jemmy and fished an oul' roast outa' the freezer...

The Crane...

For all you "younger/sporty/trendy" males:

sportsdirect.com are having a sale. I bought 200 Slazenger polo shirts there an hour ago at £1.29 each, in various sizes and colours. I'll knock them out @ €10 or 3 for €25 and turn a few bob.

The early bird catches the worm, but it's the 2nd mouse that gets the cheese.

I'm pretty sure Samipremier left the forum some months back, and with him went your target market. Even Emmetryan no longer feels such promotions on here worthwhile.

What was I thinking of.......For a further small outlay I can probably have these emblazoned with a logo of your choice....Hold up, Hold up......

I'm going to Garth Brooks

€25 each......We're rocking and rolling now.

The merchandise has arrived....top quality product, great material and size/colour choice.
Dauber expressed the opinion that more a creative logo would fly faster. He's hoping for another tsunami somewhere to which we could attach our product....Any ideas?

Here's a money maker if you're interested. I've bought 2 cars from this man, a spot on bloke.
It'll cost you just shy of €10k to clear it between currency and VRT. Has an OMSP of short of €15k.

Knock it up on any car site/local advertising for €14k and haggle down to €13,500. Quids in. Serviced, cambelt, spotless, what more do you want.

A close run thing.....

Post  Boxtyeater on Mon Mar 03, 2014 6:31 pm

I did 2X €10 accumulators the weekend. One involved the customary 8 "hotpots" and fell at the first (Dublin)
The other was 4 teams to beat the handicap (Tipp -6, Leitrim -4, Rossies & Sligo -3/2). Evens or so.

I thought I had Meath in this mix and was about to fire away the docket till I looked at it prior to ditching...
A quick check of the paper confirmed the good news. Onwards to the Bookies and Huzzah!!!!

€154.40.....

Huzzah!!!!!
