"The life and times of the Thunderbolt Kid" by Bill Bryson. One of the best and funniest books I have read in a long time. I'm a big fan of our Bill and for anyone that has read his "Down Under" book or "A Walk in the woods", this book is along the same lines. Its one of those that books that you need to be careful where you are as you will laugh out loud at parts. Its essentially Bill telling about what he got up to in his early life and teens and also what was happening in the US at the same time.
On relation to my rant on public toilets, I am very pleased to announce that the toilets in the new terminal in Cork Airport are excellent. I was in them on Sunday morning and they are very clean and don't at all smell of wee like most Irish toilets. Well done Cork airport and keep up the good work !
Have you ever sat beside someone on a plane and think that they are dead? It happened me at the weekend there. On the flight back from Dubai this lady sits beside me. She never moved for the whole 7 hour flight - except for her arms. At once stage, after I'd been asleep for a few hours I awoke to see her in the exact same position as when I went to sleep. I had to watch her for a minute as I though she may have been dead but there was breath (I said breath) there. That cant be good for ya.
