I like Room to Improve, RTE gets a bit of stick, but the Doc On One is great.

Pity his run on Durham Red was cut short, he seemed to be taking it in an interesting direction.

Got these off Thomas and PJ in Omagh, witty fun, and I can confirm, kids (well my 8 year old) really enjoyed it!

Highly recommended, incredibly well researched, written and drawn, and best of all a great comic!

I love this little country, but the healthcare is far too complicated.
I pay private health insurance, have done or the last twenty years, wouldn't be without it. Half is paid by work.

So the last two days I have had two of the kids at the Doc, €50 a pop. I can claim 20 from insurance, and then claim the balance from tax at the end of the year, ending at the visit costing somewhere around 25 euro.
Flip side is both appointments were made at 8.30, the were 'squeezed in' at nine by a great doc.

Hospitals are the same, there is a fee for A&E, and they are just mental, but in my experience once you get past the chaos that is the admission, the system, it works well. The whole private consultants working in public hospitals needs to be changed and GP referral's given more weight, eg, if I present to the hospital with a letter from the GP saying I need an Xray for a suspected sprained ankle, why do I need to be triaged, wait for a doctor, wait for the radiologist etc etc etc. AGGHG!
Anyway rant over! Back to comics.

Events / Omagh Comic Fest.
« on: 10 September, 2019, 10:58:16 pm »
Omagh Comic Fest, in Tyrone Northern Ireland, is on this Saturday, anyone going?
While smaller than Enniskillen or Derry its a great event, with plenty of time to chat with creators  and get sketches.
Ill be there with a table, joined by my two sidekicks, with tonnes of comics and annuals, drop by and say hello!

I don't post often here, never did tbh, but I still visit every day.
Much easier to follow a conversation, FB and other 2000AD discussion places are fleeting. I have no real solution, other than perhaps those that do lurk become a bit more involved.
