Lunar Eclipse tonight

Tonight is a lunar eclipse that I will be in the perfect position to view. If it weren't for the clouds. Completely clouded over so nothing is visible, no moon and no stars. The one time here we don't want it to rain.

One thing I've noticed about Arizona: We can have no rain for months on end, except for when you make plans. Like about two years ago nothing fell out of the sky (and I mean nothing) from November to February/March. But it still rained on St. Patrick's… Continue

Cette vache faisait partie d'un troupeau

Un premier cas de la maladie de la langue bleue a été détecté en Irlande du Nord sur une vache laitière importée des Pays-Bas, a annoncé vendredi la secrétaire d'Etat nord-irlandaise à l'Agriculture, Michelle Gildernew.

Cette vache faisait partie d'un troupeau de 21 génisses acheminées en janvier vers une ferme du comté d'Antrim, dans le nord-est de l'Irlande du Nord. Elle a été abattue jeudi et une zone de surveillance a été mise en place autour… Continue

Snow, Snow, Snow

We have been getting lots of snow lately, here in Wisconsin. And just a much complaining. But I wonder how many people know that the snow is good for the environment. When it melts is seeps into teh ground and fields, getting the crops started. Excess runs into the rivers and lakes, which many are low these days.

Many farmers need it to start the crops. Crops that don't get a good start can drown in the spring rains. Many lakes and rivers are low to the point you can't even lauch a… Continue

The music list

So this may be a dumb or obvious question, but is there a good list for irish music performances? I'd love to see who is playing in my area.

Random Ramblings

What should I be doing? Well, I should be editing/rewriting my massive-research-essay-project analysis-thing . . . however, I've somehow convinced myself that my last hour before my brain reboots would be better spent blogging and making my mark on my LiveIreland page that I've sadly been neglecting lately. School keeps me plenty busy, but my hobbies and obsessions make sure to never let me have any down time, which is fine since I'm not to fond of my… Continue

In Loving Memory

As most of you know our dear friend Leven from Live Ireland. She and her son received some tragic news this past week. Steven's father passed away on February 5, 2008. She asked me to let her dearest friends know. I know that most of you have known Leven for a few years now and she has become like a sister to me. This is a difficult time for her so please take the time to offer your condolences and your prayers would be appreciated. I have included a link to the Funeral Home which posts… Continue

It is so beautiful

Is it getting better?

Or do you feel the same?

Will it make it easier on you now?

You got someone to blame

You say

One love

One life

When it's one need

In the night

One love

We get to share it

Leaves you baby if you

Don't care for it

Did I disappoint you?

Or leave a bad taste in your mouth?

You act like you never had love

And you want me to go without

Well… Continue

Nicolas is always right, and even if sometimes he is wrong, it is that he is right to be wrong
