Remembering the wisdom that Michael Brenock shared with us all reminds me of a lovely series of interviews in today's Irish Times...with people in their 80s. I enjoyed the straight talking and the memories of simpler times in material terms.

You will chuckle at Dervla Murphy's outspoken views !
I'm sure Michael would have been really interesting to interview....alas too late now.

I still have a few years to go before I qualify for that era...but I agree with all the comments those people made and in particular Dervla's comment...I must commend her on her Lady like use of the English Language...I would have not been so Complimentary towards those Leeches... Mad
