Just Got Published on Yahoo by Loretto on 15 March 2012 8:22pm
 
Hey folks, I know it may not sound like a big deal but I just got an article published on Yahoo. The more views it gets the more I'll get paid! Thanks in advance :-)

Well done. I'd already read it elsewhere. An Australian Irish publication I think.

Thanks Mike, Thanks John. And yes, it was in the Australian publication, a few sligh changes but Yahoo submission rules allows you to submit pieces that were published elsewhere. I always get a big kick seeing the stuff I write in print.

Tell your daughter about this stuff too.

Thank you Sue. It is kind of nice when you end up writing something that you find interesting. The last piece I wrote, no I lie, the piece before that was about a metabolic cart being added to the lab gym at the college where I do these journalism courses. Not so terribly interesting to me to be honest. But I wrote it.

Good article, Loretto. Easy to read, informative and thought-provoking. Too bad that it is true about local pubs suffering.

Thanks Pete. For a town of 2,000 20 pubs was way too much. Now of course that figure of 20,000 doesn't include the country people. I think it is sad that the pubs are in demise, but the current minister for health in Ireland wants to change the drinking culture, and maybe that is a good thing.
