Dave Page - Uillean Piper

I would like to introduce you to Mr. Dave Page, the grand-father of Gregory Page (I posted a video by Mr. Gregory Page a few days ago). Dave Page was an Uillan Piper from Ireland and I think although he died in 1987 he really deserves to be remembered. His grand-son Gregory Page created a web site about him where you can find info about his life and free downloads as well.…See More

Niall Williams and Christine Breen - O Come Ye Back To Ireland: Our First Year in County Clare

a truly great musician...

Listened to an internet radio last year (nope, not liveireland, sorry *g*). There was an instrumental song and I loved it right away. Did a search for the artist and found him on MySpace.

He was the reason I signed up for MySpace since I wanted to let him know how much I loved that particular song. Then I heard more of his music, and I got hooked right away.

Mr. Gregory Page is someone who is able to tell little stories in a very special way. His words and tunes are touching, they are often very melancholic but in a lovely way. If you like music that is unique, touching, heart-breaking and soft and honest and... then you really have to listen to his songs... -----> Gregory Page

I missed this place...

Thanks to all for the lovely b-day wishes. They were much appreciated.

It's not easy for me to come back, my life is still not the way I want it to be. I miss Ireland and it hurts to know that I had the opportunity to go back for a one week vacation - but I can't. My job is still at stake, due to the financial crisis we only have a 'four days week', that means the lack of some of my income is hard to catch (hope that term is correct).

And - my 'soon to be ex-husband' and I once had a… Continue

To all the lovely folks...

I'm sorry that I wasn't participating for so long. But there were some things I had to cut down due to lack of time. Hopefully it'll get better soon.

Thanks to all who wrote - I will answer, soon. I promise.


I'm looking forward to fog and dew and new autumn photos...

sorry...

...that I wasn't really communicating lately. A lot of other things to do with higher priorities...

I will fly to Spain tomorrow morning - very early. My stepfather is there and I will take him home with his car, because he's afraid to drive the long way back on his own.

So - take care and behave ;)…

Life is like a roller coaster right now...

Posted on November 28, 2007 at 19:00 0 Comments

If it wasn't tragically I would say it's funny - I never imagined that my plans, my hopes and my dreams for the future could be completely destroyed within a blink of an eye. The last years haven't been easy - and I was looking forward to some peace and some rest. Now it seems that I don't deserve it.



The next few weeks will show what is going to happen. And I fear that my life will be turned upside down by then. Okay, I guess it already is. And there's nothing I can do to prevent it.… Continue

Hello Rike,

Just checking in to see how all is going with you...haven't heard from you or seen your pictures in the photo club lately. Been out and busy here with friends and family for the summer and soon again to see Canada. Getting the camera clean and ready for the trip. Hope that you are doing well.

Hi Rike, Thanks for the note. I just watched the slide show and saw some more gorgeous pictures that were added since the first comment. Some would make wonderful postcards. My favorite is the lighthouse with the red flowers. You have a great eye for composition. Keep that camera handy!
