While in Ireland for an international song competition, comedian Tony Hawks was amazed to see a hitch-hiker trying to thumb a lift with a fridge. This seemed amazingly optimistic - his Irish friends, however, thought nothing of it at all. "I had clearly arrived in a country", writes Tony, "where the qualification for 'eccentric' involved a great deal more than that to which I had become used". Years later, during an alcohol-fuelled evening, he found himself arguing about Ireland with a friend. It is, he insisted, a "magical place", so magical in fact, that a man could even get a lift with a fridge. The next morning there was a note by his bed. "I hereby bet Tony Hawks the sum of One Hundred Pounds that he cannot hitch hike around the circumference of Ireland with a fridge within one calendar month." The document was signed. The bet was made. This book is the story of Tony's adventures throughout that month, the people he meets, the difficulties he encounters and the triumphs.

    What do you think of WebEasy? I'm a technical person but am just considering the simple drag-and-drop or wysiwyg type web builders, because this can't take a lot of my time, don't want to work with HTML or other coding and also because I'm building a site for a non technical person who will take it over.

      Do you know if you can create a login driven site using SS? I can't seem to find the answer to that- would be using a lot of social media integration such as one-click sign in using FB, posting to twitter or FB on your behalf, etc.

    Is the GoDaddy tool responsive? Does it fit all screens no matter the size?
