29th-May-2010 06:58 pm - New CEO appointed at HSE
garfield
 
This is staggering. Are they telling us that there is NO ONE, NOT ONE person already working in the HSE who has been training, groomed, preparing for the top job? Unlike ANY other company there is NO ONE internally shadowing the top dog who can do the job? No successor in waiting? That they HAVE to go outside and pay an absolute fortune for someone to put in place systems that can't even track how many children are in care and have died.

And, of course, another insider.

 There is a program on TG4 called "Ni Hao Kai Lin" ("Hello Kai Lin", or more literally "You good? Kai Lin") which teaches children Chinese... through Irish.

Its a rebadged Nick Jr programme but it really shows how small the world is becoming!

There was a phenomenon a few years ago when white middle class American kids began using Spanish in everyday conversations much to the consternation of their waspish parents. It was found to be down to watching Sesame St

I wonder if mna na dti (did I get that right?) at Gaeltacht houses will now have to sanction the kids for not only speaking English, but Chinese too!

Did anyone get the film reference in this weeks Dr Who?

Deploying the gravity-bubble-encased-Hurricanes (or Spits?)  the Group-Captain in the war room picks up the radio and announces:

"Broadsword calling Danny Boy"

And earlier I'd swear one of the radio girls "633 squadron"

There was probably more but seeing as I tend to miss the subtle ones ...
