One of this weekend’s English newspaper supplements had a main feature entitled, “Reasons to be Cheerful”. It reminded me, not just of the Ian Dury track, but of a similar article (scans above) from In Dublin, back in April 1980, when it celebrated its 100th issue. This article is itself very similar to the subsequent “200 Reasons to stay in Dublin” feature from March 1984, when In Dublin celebrated its 200th issue.
Like this blog and like life, it’s all a circle. Just make sure to put a smiley face in it. The evenings are getting longer.
