Eily’s Report – 26th January

Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my weekly report.

There was no work done last Wednesday, or as the old people used to say, there wasn’t a stroke done.  On account of the times that are, there isn’t a whole lot doing anyway. But even the bare necessities were neglected on January 21st 2021

The whole world waited not so much to see Joe Biden being inaugurated the next  President of the USA as to see Donald Trump stepping down or being forced to do so. Gone were his adoring  followers, they eventually cottoned on to his lies and arrogance which eventually led to the deaths of five people. It was almost pathetic to see him walking alone, except for his long suffering wife out of the White House to his helicopter, a place where he said he’d never leave and on boarding his plane for his  flight home there was little more than his own family to see him off. A narcissist to the end, his way or no way.  He was living proof, that it doesn’t work.
