Today demonstrated how news stories can change really fast depending on what is seen as important. The report on Shane Grogan and his journey and that of his family was scheduled for Morning Ireland today, and confirmed last night. And changed later in the night. I’d say for bad Apples. There is a plan to have the report on tomorrow morning, but who knows. We’ll see tomorrow, or rather: hear.

>>> NEWS JUST IN: UNLESS SOMETHING BIG HAPPENS, THE FIRST OF TWO REPORTS WILL BE ON MORNING IRELAND BETWEEN 8:00 AND 8:30 TOMORROW MORNING AND ALL MORNING NEWS BULLETINS WILL CARRY A SHORTER NEWS REPORT! <<<

Pádraig is doing well with his therapy. The plan for tomorrow is to climb stairs. When I heard that, I was wondering whether this was something real or more an expression of ambition. In the end, I decided to look at it like I’m looking at the Morning Ireland situation. It’ll all be revealed. Tomorrow.

Today, I got a bit of competition. Chris (remember, Chris is one of those three auld folks attempting to cycle from Hollywood to Napa next month) started what he calls a ‘blog’, and Facebook calls ‘Notes’. Have a look at it!
