Morelands Grill – Dublin

By | 2017-06-12T13:31:56+00:00 June 12th, 2017|Food, Restaurants, Review|

I was kindly invited along to the launch of the new Morelands Grill on Westmoreland street. It's actually beside/part of the Westin hotel but also serves as its own entity rather than simply being another hotel restaurant. It has its own separate entrance which highlights that point. Inside is tastefully decorated but since I was [...]

Night Photography – Trying to Capture the Milky Way – Part One

By | 2017-04-13T13:48:17+00:00 April 13th, 2017|Photography, Uncategorized|

Last week, I headed to Glendalough in the evening to try some night photography. It was a clear evening as I drove south.

I had already submitted some images a few months ago on a bad mount board. For the final, we are to submit 2 final images and we are allowed [...]

The White Rabbit Project – It’s Not Supposed to be Mythbusters

A couple of weeks ago, I was looking for a show to watch during lunchtime at work and came across The White Rabbit Project. It has the familiar support team from Mythbusters so I was intrigued. I read a little about it first and all the reviews seem to be complaining that it's not as good [...]

I like Tannins in Wine

On Wednesday at my wine course, we covered The America's both North and South. I find most North American wines too sweet. Most of the wines we had from Argentina and Chile were reds and most were pretty sweet. One stood out for me though and that was Bodegas Callia Blend de Terroirs Cabernet Sauvignon. That's [...]
