Speeding At Risk In Mallorca…

Tiger Comes Full Circle

“The greatest thing about tomorrow is, I will be better than I am today.” – Tiger Woods.

He never had a bad word to say about anyone and he was always – and I mean always – the life of the party.

Happy new year to you. May 2019 be a positive year of growth for you in every sense of the word. Our family was lucky to get away for a few days to Holland over the Christmas and we were due to travel back to Ireland on New Year’s Eve evening. But all did not go as planned…
