Ancient Technology Found In Ireland

My Dad e-mailed me this on Friday - so I have only just read it and thought I would pass it on!

Ancient Technology In Ireland

After having dug to a depth of 10 meters last year, Scottish scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 100 years and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago.  
Not to be outdone by the Scots, in the weeks that followed, British scientists dug to a depth of 20 meters, and shortly after, headlines in the UK newspapers read: "British archaeologists have found traces of 200 year old copper wire and have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years earlier than the Scots." 
One week later, "The Kerrymen," a southwest Irish newsletter, reported the following: "After digging as deep as 30 meters in peat bog near Trelee, Paddy O'Droll, a self taught archeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Paddy has therefore concluded that 300 years ago Ireland had already gone wireless."

Adventure before dementia

My Work!

Over the last couple of weeks I said I had been decorating my office - well, it was only part of where I work - the treatment room itself didn't get touched.

As an osteopath we all work in different styles of surgeries.  And although I have a great icon of a topless Spike - let me assure you that I never get patients that gorgeous!!

Mine is also my dining room and the style is very similar to the rest of the house - assorted pictures,  ornaments, etc.  Anyway - OI took a couple of pictures so you can see both my style of "muddle" that I live in ... actually it looks tidy (the only room in the house that is) ... but also you can see where I work.

The computer wasn't turned on - so you can't glimpse my marvellous wallpaper that beanbeansmade me!
