Quick note on the conference, generally a pretty reasonable insight into the level of obesity, diabetes and other lifestyle-related illnesses in Ireland, and basically how the current health system is inadequately organised to deal with them. From 9 to 4 every speaker basically ripped the government before the guest of honour, the Minister for Health, gave the key note speech. Needless to say she didn't take questions, as there were more than a few in the room with knives sharpening. I was a little disappointed as I would have loved to have seen Mary Harney get ripped a new one, but it wasnt to be.
I am also fighting a strong urge to go drinking, as I am now longer a dog owner. Balls.
