    I’m a sucker for a good “comeback “ story, and that’s a good one-thanks, and Happy New Year to you and Saint Marina!

        Ha! No, although I’ve been known to enjoy my fair share of pints here in the Chicago area, I’m not in the line of work to be able to get away with “ I was working on a story down at the local pub”. Marina just seems to be as understanding as my wife of 34 years, who also has earned sainthood!

          Whew! I worked with a Mike Moore in my first job and he was the biggest asshole I met in this business. I didn’t think he’d surface after 40 years and give me a nice compliment. Yeah, researching in a pub isn’t bad. It just won’t pay the bills. That’s what retirement is for.

    ” Eight people died during the construction, mostly by execution.” ??Life sure was hard in the shipyard then! I missed this little item when I was there. But seriously, Belfast is a wonderful city, with lots of scenery around, especially on the north coast coming back from the Giants causeway back to Belfast.
    Happy New Year to you and Marina and lots more travelling.

      Thanks, Jeff. We need to go back. Lots of pubs we missed. And I want to see hurling.
