a fuNNy

A man approaches a young woman in a shop. he says " I can't find my wife, can I talk to you for a few minutes?" The woman says "Sure but do you have any idea where your wife is?" "Not a clue" he says" But whenever I talk to a beautiful woman with t**s like yours she appears out of nowhere.

a FuNny

An Irishman an Englishman and a Scot were sitting in a bar. The view was fantastic, the beer excellent, and the food exceptional. The Scotsman, 'I still prefer the pubs back home. Why in Glasgow there's a wee bar called McTavish's. Now, the landlord there goes out of his way for the locals so much that when you buy 4 drinks he will buy the 5th drink for you.' 'Well,' said the Englishman, 'At my village local, the Red Lion, the barman there will buy you your 3rd drink after you buy the first 2.' 'Ahhh, dat's nothin,' said the Irishman. 'Back home in Dublin , there's Ryan's Bar. Now the moment you set foot in the place they'll buy you a drink, then another, and another, and in fact all the drinks you like. Then when you've had enough drinks they'll take you upstairs and see that you get laid. All on the house!' The Englishman and Scotsman immediately pour scorn on the Irishman's claims. But, the Irishman swears every word is true. 'Well,' said the Englishman, 'Did this actually happen to you?' 'Not me me-self, personally, no,' said the Irishman. 'But it did happen to me sister a few times.'

Fingymoto roadrace review 2013 ULSTER GP

The Ulster GP is the greatest roadrace in the world and the 2013 GP left us in no doubt,we went up on the Thursday morning to get practice and the Dundrod 150 unfortunatly the racing on Thursday evening was cancelled due to rain and with the forecast Saturdays racing looked doubtful but the rain blew off in the morning and we had a great days racing.Having accomodation with Slice of Buff for the weekend also added to the enjoyment and a night in Belfast on Friday was great.,

Lectron carberators the bane of my life !!! we ain,t friends

Fingymoto roadrace review 2013 ARMOY

Armoy is a relativly new race on the calender and is run through Joeys home village of Armoy and the clerk of the course is Frank Kennedys brother so it has a pedigree,it has fast become one of the best races on calender and may become a international meeting in time .The village is a great asset to the race with the riders making a sharp left on the main street and some good grandstands for the spectators also there is good access to spectating points from the paddock,this is a race that I highly reccomend and will only get better as the years go by . Also it is close to Joeys bar a must for all race fans,,

Wet and Loose ! ! !

Fingymoto roadrace review 2013 WALDERSTOWN,

After the TT a break is needed before the next trip away granted we fitted in the Enniskillen and Cookstown racing shows but with Bush roadrace cancelled and me not wanting to go to Skerries it was mid July before we got to Walderstown a race set in the very centre of the country and less than two hours trip also it was the first trip to a race for the Fingymoto van which was handy for cooking.Walderstown is a short track like Cookstown but with the great weather it was a good weekends racing sadly marred by the death of 125 rider Bruce Moulds a rising star and a stark reminder of just how crazy this sport is.Its a good race for the craic and the weather is often kind to it but the track is just too short and a bit stop start,,,
