Today I started a retirement course. Yes. I can’t believe it myself. As it happens, as a spouse I got a free ticket. I’ll continue tomorrow. I learned as much about the attitude of old people towards gender as I did about retirement. It was unbelievable to see and to hear how clearly defined it was in some of the participants’ mind what the role of the male and the female partner in a relationship is.

Pádraig today got the satellite of love dish installed providing the free-to-air Irish channels as well as the U.K. and European Continental channels, including Spain and Germany. It took far too long to make this happen. But it did. Happen.

As will many other things. We just need a long breadth.
