Everyone deserves to come home with gold, however that can’t happen, so remember this you have made it! Well done and have fun.

Scoobfest 2012 – 22nd July 2012 – Junction One, Antrim

Scoobfest 2012 - 22/07/2012 - Junction One, Antrim

Scoobfest is the biannual car show run by Irish Subaru website, ScoobyIreland.com and it brings Subarus from across the country all together to show off their stuff.  It has made its home at the Junction One Retail Park in Antrim and as such promises stunning motors, an easy to get to location and something many car shows lack, something for the ladies – shopping!

This year it was joined by a few other websites, namely the Celica Owners Club, NI-Vaux, Irish Subaru Drivers Club, Subaru Driver’s Club Northern Ireland and the Mitsubishi Lancer Register.

The result of all this was a fantastic set of motors all in one spot!

This is a Charity event and this time round all proceeds from the show went to Cool FM / Downtown Radios ‘Cash For Kids’ Appeal, a great local charity!  As well as this over £1000 in prizes were up for grabs, and in relation to those here are the results from the day :

12th July 2012 Ardoyne Riots – via Twitter

This year I found out how truly amazing Twitter can be, and it was in a bad situation.  As you will probably no each July Belfast turns from an amazing, beautiful, diverse and accepting city into a pit of sin, fighting, rioting and hate rule the streets for a day or two then we are back to our brilliant best.

It is these couple of days though that get us plastered all over the world news and as you will see from the following photos it is not in a good light!

Some call this ‘activity’ ‘reactional rioting’ in an attempt to disguise what it is.  That being criminal damage, attempted murder, disorderly behaviour and riotous behaviour, all pretty high up there in the criminal scale of things.

No matter what anyone says it is clear from yesterday that these riots were planned, no side, be it orange or green could have done anything to prevent these riots, there was gonna be a fight and that’s it!

Even the rioters were caught on camera fighting with each other!

Thugs… Get out, move on, grow up, leave us and leave our city, in this our year, our time, our place, and oh yeah you’re not welcome!

And your guns aren’t welcome on our streets, shooting at Police will never be acceptable, you want to be a killer?  Just get yourselves under that water cannon and have a good aul Belfast wash!

Northern Ireland 12th July 2012 Celebrations / Riots

So it is the 12 July again and that means it is time for rioting across Northern Ireland and moreso Belfast and the Ardoyne shops.

This basically comes down to the Loyal Orange Order wanting to match along their traditional route. The Nationalists then claim that this area is not supportive of an oppressive march and it is not welcome.

Result – A Stand off.

So what has now become a yearly event the Nationalists attack the police who are trying to separate them from the Loyalists.

Today there were determinations ruled by the Parades Commission that meant the LOL had to be finished by 4pm. They did this. Then the Nationalists would have a counter demonstration, however before this happened the riots began.

These riots have lead to #Belfast and #Ardoyne trending on twitter! A real shame in this 2012, our year, our place, our time.

We have let ourselves and each other down a lot this year.

I could go on and on about this but I want to keep it straight and to the facts do that is them. I have amassed a full collection of photos from the day which I will get up later, but really people – wise up your are destroying your own communities and raising tensions when in this day and age there should be none!


‘Durable’ iPhone 4s Case – Thoughts / Reviews and Photos…

So to start this is an eBay case, and it ranges massively in price from seller to seller, expect to pay about £7.00 including post and packaging for this case, anything more and you are being ripped off.  The best sellers also have it in pretty much every colour you could ever want.  As you can see I have opted for the ‘dark blue’ option, thinking that it looked very like the Subaru WR Blue shade of blue, in actual fact as you can probably tell from the photos it is a good bit lighter than WR Blue.

I am a big fan of hard and tough cases, and this definitely ticks those boxes.  It is tough and hard, it is after all metal, and whats more you need an ‘Allan’ key to put the thing together.
