Any further updates on fixing the site ? It’s annoying seeing all the gobbledegook
when I try to post something .

Very sorry folks left in the lurch but I'm on it.

Thanks GT. Something else that concerns me is updating the site with the newest software because we would all have to agree to the new EU internet terms and conditions and I'm personally opposed to this tracking method which is exactly what it is. Everything has been building up to this, take note of every site over the last year asking you accept cookies. These simple text files were harmless to allow you quicker access to a website you frequently visit, but now they have different lines of text to track you for marketeers that follow all your surfing habits.

"This site uses cookies from Google to deliver its services and to analyse traffic. Your IP address and user agent are shared with Google, together with performance and security metrics, to ensure quality of service, generate usage statistics and to detect and address abuse.

"By playing this video you agree to Twitter's use of cookies. This use may include analytics, personalization, and ads."

Just look up the phrases in bold type. It simply means that whatever we do now is tracked and recorded, even when you delete history, even the cookies, it's too late because it's all stored on the servers.


Anyway I'm just saying I'll keep it the way it is.

EDIT: And the biggest joke of all? "We value your privacy"

Strum,
Yes, there is significant responsibility placed upon the administrators of web-blogs and the relevant data held by their servers, relating to their subscribers/contributors. Opinion based sites, akin to all content providers must now have increased and appropriate online security. This means a consequent unavoidable cost to have such content displayed, with all contributors personal details sufficiently protected.

Oh God gingertom this sounds like a mine field. We are just a bunch of moaners from the Borough who used to like to chat!

I'm not doing anything wrong by not updating the software, just like I don't accept cookies anywhere, it's not mandatory is it, so why not keep the site as is, when it's repaired, and let it continue as is, a small community chatting, no harm in that, point being that I'm protecting your privacy here so why give access to your emails, private messages and all your past posts etc?

Well the real weather is just fantastic. A heatwave on the way. The sea at Killiney is sparkling and swimmers are arriving. We are blessed with so many gorgeous places in the Borough to sit, relax and enjoy. Yippeee is all I can say.

Yes, keep our beaches clean from our induced garbage. Put it in a bag and bring it home.

Yesterday I saw some lads struggling with a large box of cans to Killiney Beach. You can bet your bottom dollar both box and cans would be chucked into the sea!!

Rocker posted earlier how lucky we are here in the borough with nice places to visit, and so right she is between the mountains and the sea,I paid a visit to the cemetery yesterday where I noticed all the plants have dried up and died on most graves and there's a weed of some sort gone rampant in Deansgrange won't be long until the hosepipe ban.

That weed is so invasive, Horses Mane, indestructible fecker, my Aunt got her family grave done 18 months ago and that stuff burst its way up through the heavy plastic sheet and gravel and destroyed the grave. Waste of time trying keep it in control, my family grave covered in it.

Living here in the Borough with the warming seas we really lead a charmed life. For the last week every morning I check in with my Irishweather online and people all over the country are knee deep in snow and having miserable wet windy days. I look out the window and the sky is blue, a little wind, not too cold, the beach full of walkers, the spring flowers in full bloom. What's not to like about Borough living. wuu wuu

for the last while I have been following an artist on F/B. Her cards are on a very Christian theme and she hits the nail on the head for me! I love this one
