Actually man, that's not where I live.
We live in a town called Letterkenny, which is in the county of Donegal.
We usually just say (when we talk about where we live to others), that it's nice here in Donegal (meaning Letterkenny).
It's just the Irish way man, and I gave up trying to figure them out years ago.
I've been trying to find some nice links for you, to post an image here, but I can't.
Anyway, I will keep trying, and thanks for your nice picture too.
Donegal town is actually really nice.
:D

Nice one mate, thank you.
Couldn't find a decent piccie anywhere.
I'll try and maybe take a couple of snaps myself, then post them here, as Letterkenny is actually really nice, and even though your piccie is well appreciated, it just doesn't do it justice.
Thanks again.

:D

dearest Steve, and to all who appreciate classic cinema,
If I may, allow me to make a truly great movie recommendation:
....GRINDHOUSE....
Get your ass down to the theater, pronto, and see this wonderfully exploitative, and hilariously violent homage to 70's scum. AWESOME movie!!!!

What is 'exploitation' anyways - with regards to movies anyhoo?
I never understood the reasoning behind it all.

exploitation is pretty much self-explanatory, but it typically refers to excessive sex, violence, drugs....ya know, the fun things in life. The term 'Grindhouse' refers to double features put forth in the 70's which excelled in showing tales of gruesome heroism and sex-fueled revenge. The exploitation genre hit its peak in the 70's, and Rodriquez and Tarantino do a great job of making the new film look like a 70's flick (grainy picture, 70's actors). It's got zombies, car chases, half-naked women, gore, you name it...it's just a fun time. Those of you who have seen the film Vanishing Point will enjoy Tarantino's 'Death Proof'. Primal Scream named their 1997 album after the movie!
They make great references to the original classics, and Chuck, the movie 'Women In Cages' makes a cameo appearance in the film!
Just see it, my friends, it's well worth the money!
