The one with a birthday blog

Dear blog, even though the updates have slowed down to less than occasional, I still love you. Sort of. Your like a booty call at 5am. When there is nothing happening anywhere else, I know you're good for it.

So happy 7th birthday. I'll be round in a few weeks. X x x x x x

I woke up this morning around the usual ungodly hour. First thing I do is reach for the iPod in it’s docking station and hit the snooze button. This morning for whatever reason, maybe a good nights sleep, I chose to shut down the alarm and have a quick browse through twitter, which is my normal routine, after about 20 punches of the snooze button.
The first thing I saw was that Steve Jobs had passed away. Being half asleep and bleary eyed, I reached for my iPad. Same thing there. An amazing visionary had passed away. My first words to my wife this morning were not good morning or anything of the sort. She was awoken to the words “Steve Jobs is dead!”
I’m kinda late onto the apple bandwagon ( I was always a windows buff), but I was always aware of what Apple and Jobs were doing as a kid. The likes of Jobs, Gates, Sinclair etc. were always inspirational in my young book.
My first interaction with any Apple product was in a school computer lab. And I was blown away. Not so much by what was on the screen, but the actual design and shape of thing, compared to the IBM compatible monsters that were also lurking around the same lab. It took the bare bones of nearly 20 odd years after that for me to buy the original iPod touch. And since then; Nano’s, more iPod touches, Apple TV’s and an iPad 2 all have been purchased. Honestly, I believe the iPad is one of the greatest pieces of tech ever invented. It doesn’t leave my side and I couldn’t get through the day without it. Even for my (almost) 15 month old.His first interaction with anything tech was an apple product. He’ll quite happily sit in front of my iPad banging drums on Garage Band or laughing at a movie or interacting with Elmo. I would have been lost in NYC or Dubai or London or anywhere else I’ve been without my iPod touch. It’s rarely used for listening to music. Instead it has gotten me around subways, provided directions and even booked restaurants for me thousands of miles away from home.
Steve Jobs along with his vision and drive have made a huge impression on me. So it’s with a heavy heart that I write this. And whilst this is an incredibly sad time for the Jobs family and all that knew him it also needs to be a celebration of what was most certainly an incredibly gifted human being. He has changed and inspired the world by how we interact and communicate with each other forever. His vision has changed how we read magazines, listen to music, the list is endless. His vision has changed my life and it has brought smile after smile to my son’s life. And for that, I say “Thank You, Steve!”
As individuals Steve Jobs has changed our lives in ways no one thought possible years ago.
And it is only today that we realise, there is more “ i ” in all of us than we ever knew!

Sad day today, with the passing of an amazing visionary, Steve Jobs. It wasn't only in the world of technology Steve made an impact. He made a huge impact in the world of movies. One word. Pixar.

So may he rest in peace. Steve Jobs, the man who turned i into we!

Today is the day! The introduction of tolls to the Jack Lynch Tunnel is now a large possibility. For most people who use the tunnel on a regular basis, normally twice a day, at a toll (for example) of 1.80 each way, 5 days a week, that'll set you back €18 a week. Which is €936 a year. Which is a family holiday! Which is health insurance for a year! Which is a helluva lot if you don't have it!

There is a huge knock on effect right across the board if the tunnel is tolled. It will effect traders in Cork, as people divert into the city to avoid the tolls, and in turn will bring the city to a standstill. It will be chaotic. It will effect Mahon Point. It will increase the cost of taxis, if they use the tunnel. People are paying more than over the odds for petrol, insurance, car tax, tyres, servicing. The list goes on!

So, here's what we're asking YOU to do! Don't use the tunnel today, Thursday September 29th. If you have nearly an extra €1000 to blow, by all means drive through it! This is about standing up! This is about people power! This is about highlighting what happens if you have to pay to drive through a tunnel that is less the 1km in length. It's about highlighting what happens if you have to pay to drive through a tunnel that is less than 20km from another toll. Most importantly, this is about YOU!!!

If the tunnel is tolled, don't be the one saying "I should have or could have". Today is the day you say "I DID!"
