Although I hail from Ireland originally I live in England. As it happens I have the great fortune to live in the most scenic and underpopulated region of England. I live in the South Lakes of the Lake District National Park and boy am I glad I do.
The weekend just gone I decided to take a break, but guess what? I didn’t take my laptop as it’s in for repairs. Although I loved my two nights in two different hotels I had to pop back home on Sunday morning to check my email. Of course my girlfriend went bananas but she should know me by now.
For anyone playing with the idea of visiting the English Lake District, do it! Both the North and South Lakes are stunning. Mountains, lakes and all framed by the Irish sea too. I revisted an amazing place called Castlerigg which is a stone circle that dates back 4500 years. I also went for a swim in lake Coniston, after the initial shock (the water was freezing) I soon started to enjoy myself. England is having a heatwave right now which is amazing given the time of year.
My long term girlfriend is well aware I’m a workaholic, anything I do I do to excess - now thats a double edged sword if there ever was one. I figure such a personality type is a blessing and a curse without doubt. My addictive personality extends to domain names. I’m the first to admit I’m hooked on Domain names. I want to know the latest news, the latest deals etc
I hand register names all the time, 98% of my domains are hand registered. I’m glad I popped back even though it took an hour to smooth it over with my other half. I picked up Sackful.com and Deplete.net for registration fee and I love both of those names.
One word domains are by far my favourite esp in com/net/org I cobrokered a $28 k sale of a one word com just last week, I can’t reveal what it was due to an NDA but I can say it had 11 letters. If anyone has one word coms priced to sell right now drop me an email ~ urlbrokers(@)gmail.com as we have serious buyers actively seeking to purchase them.
Anyway I had a much needed break but as from yesterday it was very much back to work, full throttle as ever.
For those interested we have 6 extended auctions closing tomorrow (april 20th) on Bido. Half of the 6 have bins/reserves/bido prices that have been SIGNIFICANTLY dropped since the initial offering which ended last wednesday on the bido platform. The auctions in question are as follows -
See.net ~ Toni.com ~ VR.net (Virtual Reality!) ~ Milan.net ~ CarBrakes.com ~ A package of Nine Premium .Me (incl. Mature.me/Gas.me/Staff.me)
My doing everything to excess extended to booze too but thankfully I haven’t touched alcohol for almost 13yrs and have no plans to give it another whirl any time soon. I sure don’t miss the old days but I’m sure shareholders of brewing companies do!
