Just in time for the holidays--Irish-style fruitcake recipe!

Technically, this is a tea brack (from the Irish 'breac' or 'speckled'), but it can be made in a variety of ways, all delicious. It's really easy, too.



First, brew a good, strong cup of tea (I like Irish Breakfast tea, but any variety you like). You can also make this half tea, half whiskey or rum. Whichever, into the one cup of liquid dissolve 3/4 of a cup of firmly packed brown sugar. Soak 1 and 1/2 to 2 cups of raisins in the sugar-tea mix overnight. I use a mix of regular and… Continue

Life is like a roller coaster right now...

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

Lost In The Forest of Caldwell Castle

On our recent trip to Ireland, my brother and I left Beleek and headed to Enniskillen but decided to take a trip to Caldwell Castle. The castle is located in a forest which you have to walk thru in order to see it. We thought, "What the hell. Sounds like it will be fun!" When you enter the grounds, you discover that there are three paths you can take, each one being longer than the next but all leading to the castle.…

Well some of you know we were hit pretty hard by Hurricane Katrina, but we moved. We no longer live on the bayou. We moved to the enterior of Jackson County, called Escatwapa. We have been here about 2 months. I love it, higher ground. This place had no water damage (yeah!!!!!!) so we are hopeful about the next one. Are there hurricanes in Ireland? Something to look into Continue

Damn cuts to my fingers!

Well alas this morning the unthinkable happened. At about 11pm last night I was sharing a beer with a friend when I cut my right hand - just on my fingers. Nothing bad at all but it does limit the finger motion over hard strings! Hense my hose is now quiet for the sound of Banjo. It will be a few days yet before I am able to play again I think and I miss my tunes immensely.

Of course the other moment was from a few too many beers last night and hense spent a tired night in a hotel -…

First post - Nov. 17

Having difficulty typing. A storm is brewing outside and will have to turn off PC soon. Trembling Shih-tzu (who's scared of storms) glued to lap and getting in the way of the keyboard. Mind you, when the big tsunami they keep predicting hits Oz one day, the Shih-tzu will have warned me by the terrified act and we'll make sure to avoid Sydney for a while (thus avoiding the seaside) and escape it all.

Creative notes - Finished a viking weave bracelet last night, but…

Your Hands

The other day I noticed a lot of things about your hands.

Here are just a few:



They have seen hard work--whether pushing computer keys or holding a hammer.

There is such a masculine quality about them. Strong when they want to be-------Soft when they need to be.

Comforting----that pat on the back saying things will be o k -- or rubbing circles on my shoulders in an Ï understand" sort of way.



The magic in your fingers that brings music to life--that touches me… Continue
