Sorting out the kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of the house. Modern "transmission line" lights are fitted, and the washing machine plumbed in. The TV is connected. 

TV - a digression

An unofficial "community relay" is used on Band 3 and UHF. There's a digital service, Chorus that appears from a terrestrial SHF source complete with Sky 1. Chorus uses a peculiar Multipoint Microwave Distribution System.

Judith's lucky that her UK Television can handle VHF as well as UHF.

Bantry Bay

Bantry BayBantry BayThis evening we go west to Bantry Bay, about forty minutes drive.

We park a short way out of Bantry and walk in to the centre. You could have a very good pub crawl here!

Judith has a Cork Gin and I have a Guinness in a pub filling up with smart young people.

Judith likes a model Rector Rabbit amongst the many tourist trinkets. This is noted.

Towards Sheep's HeadWe drive part way along the peninsula to Sheep's head. The landscape is more mountainous than the rolling terrain at Ballineen.
