For your information.......

The Rolling Stones will announce the dates for their European Tour today, Thursday, at 4 p.m. The big news is that this mornings newspapers are speculating a concert in Slane will be pencilled in for August.

Happy Birthday to William Shatner born this day in 1931. An absolutely usless but none the less interesting piece of trivia I carry around with me is that he was involved in the first inter-racial kiss seen on American TV. Both he and the fellow crew member of the Startship Enterprise were possessed by aliens at the time though. Shatner has his own website naturally enough. On the site is a link to his DVD club, where he advocates horror, sci-fi and fantasy movies that have slipped under the radar. I've a new appreciation of such movies after finally getting around to watching Peter Jackson's 'Brain Dead' a few weeks ago. When funds allow I might consider joining.

Entertainment.ie has a Lotto winnings calculator on their site. Essentially, if you use the same Lotto numbers each weeks you can slot them in and hey presto, the calculator will predict what your winnings should have been since 2003. It goes without saying this could lead to very depressing news and you will forever curse that one week you were away on holidays.

Finally, Irish movie 'Once' is released tomorrow. The movie directed by John Carney, stars Glen Hansard, formerly of the frames and is much hyped having won the World Cinema Audience Award for Dramatic Film at Robert Redford's Sundance Film Festival.

Isn't Glen still with the Frames?

ANd i dont do the lotto every week, and certainly not the same numbers. However if i did the numbers from my €4 quickpick last night since 2003 i would be in the hole to the tune of €2500.

It could be you! My arse
