Hi folks, being sending you a pile of hugs from Norther Ireland where I am to stay almost for a month for the biz. Although after 14 days I am going home for a week and than back, so it is bearable. Or has to. As you know Magdalene (wife) gave birth to Mathew 6 wks ago plus minus so it will be more difficult for her to look after two kids daily, but she does not have a plenty of choices, right? That makes me unhappy but sometimes we are forced to take the things as they are.

I would like to type something like how beautiful the town, where I am being settled, is but honestly I do not know. I was travelling all Sunday long and having a terrible fever 39.6C. Not sure what is that in Fahrenheit, but I guess it might be 102 or 103. So I did not remember too much about travelling. I was like being hit by a train or something. But today it seems a bit better. Just woke up and the first thing on the internet was to see WC.

This way I would like to thank all the guys downloading the CONSTRUCT. Your support is really remarkable. As for the ProtonX, it will need some time before it is done. During my biz trip I won't be working on it as I will have a lot of duties to do. But nobody is in hurry, right?

 

If you want to, just drop a word or two, it will make me happy, especially under the circumstances.

 

Many many thanks, folks

 

Yours

Tom

Sounds like the flu, Tom. If you're more than 48-72 hours into it, Tamiflu won't help. Maybe see a Doctor? [revolutionary idea, eh?].

Greetings Tom from America. I'm relieved to hear that your fever has passed and you are improving. That is a good omen. I'm a bit envious that you get to be in Ireland. My parents once toured Europe and spent some time there. The pictures they brought back were breathtaking to say the least. Keep everything in perspective Tom and cherish this time as one of lifes memorable experiences. Have a great adventure my friend , and maybe visit one of the local pubs for some socializing.   Have Fun and be safe.              -- Ace --

I hope you are feeling better and can enjoy your trip, even if it is work related. At least you get a change of scenery for awhile and get paid to see it. That can't be all bad. Stay safe and get healthy.

You don't need to be envious, mate. Or shall I say lad? They use this "lad" word very often  as I can hear. In this seasson the weather is very changeable. 5 mins sunshine another 5 mins raining cats and dogs or something worse. But if I put all my pieces together and will feel better I will check this all out for sure

I know, it is just... I feel like being shot. The optimistic mood is gone. But having some pills with me, so I will be hoping it will turn out well soon

Oh man, really? But if I feel better, will that last for some time. Just worried that upon visiting a pub I might be crashed again. For another reason but anyway?

Glad you're feeling better now Tom. Enjoy your time in Ireland as much as you can. I know when I was there traveling all over it was absolutely breathtaking. Super friendly people, and talk about a clean country! No matter where you went you did not see trash all over the ground like here in the US, you didn't see garbage and trash anywhere. We have nothing but lazy slobs and pigs here in that regard. Even if they had a party at a local bar (pub), or were enjoying a soccer (football) match and things got a little messy outside, it was all cleaned up by 9AM! Love the Irish people!

Thank you Tom. From that perspective we have the same kind of people in Czech Republic too and does not matter where are you. E.g. I was with my older son in the playground which is situated in the middle of our public park. As that is a centre of various types especially in the night you can be strumbbling over broken bottles, trash or and I was pretty shocked to see that in the playground you can see syringe.

 

I am wise enough to know what is necessary but my son is not with other kids of his age...

Its like that in many places not just there Tom. An unfortunate reality. But...............there's this silver thingy in a dark cloud covered in happy faces and one of them has your name on it. And high up top is a big 'ole sign with light blue text flashing like disco balls and to the left is Wicky doing his version of John Travolta dancing to the Bee Gee's Staying alive. The WC!

Doc, don't blame Randy it's not his fault. RND has rubbed off on him a bit from all the conversation they have. As long as he doesn't turn into a full blown redneck all will be well.

I love you guys. Especially thanks to the fact that every thread of mine has ever had a different start and totally different progress. Now we are coming up with Bee Gee's and amazing Stayin' alive. So why not sing, right? 

 

Well, you can tell by the way I use my walk,
I'm a woman's man, no time to talk.
Music loud and women warm.
I've been kicked around since I was born.
And now it's all right, it's O.K.
And you may look the other way.
We can try to understand
The New York Times' effect on man.
Whether you're a brother
Or whether you're a mother,
You're stayin' alive, stayin' alive.
Feel the city breakin'
And ev'rybody shakin'
And we're stayin' alive, stayin' alive.
Ah, ha, ha, ha,
Stayin' alive.
Stayin' alive.
Ah, ha, ha, ha,
Stayin' alive. 
Well now, I get low and I get high
And if I can't get either I really try.
Got the wings of heaven on my shoes
I'm a dancin' man and I just can't lose.
You know it's all right, it's O.K.
I'll live to see another day.
We can try to understand
The New York Times' effect on man.

Ah, ha, ha, ha,

Stayin' alive.
Ah, ha, ha, ha,
Stayin' alive. 
Life goin' nowhere. 
Somebody help me. 
Somebody help me, yeah.

BTW, my health has moved forwards so I am going to work tomorrow and if nothing bad happens I will try to discover the world out there. Have seen a plenty  of wonderful scenerys. Especially there are some terrific stones on the coast, very well known, but I can not recall the name.

Professedly worth a visit for sure. Need to do something or I am gonna be stayin' death. Really
