Some Recent Celtic Music Squidoo Lenses

I've been pretty busy over at Squidoo.com in the past few months. I now have 35 lenses (web pages) on Celtic music, plus 15 Celtic music video showcases. The video showcase number has fallen recently as I've decided to incorporate some of the videos into the lenses themselves.

A Childhood Scene

As the evenings are now well and truly closing in and winter's chill bites at our noses I thought I'd share with you one of my happiest childhood memories from that season. This entry is from my Blogspot website:
