During Klara's Monday evening broadcast this week, a message from Daithi said he was testing transmissions from Newgrange. I'd heard the name, but didn't know anything about it, so I looked it up on Wikipedia. It's a restored Neolithic passage tomb that's 5,000 years old, with the passage aligned to admit the sun down a long passage into the interior on the morning of the Winter Solstice.
One of the Wikipedia links was to a video about the 2007… Continue

So, this summer is all about the bad finances and starting a debt reduction plan. I have had nasty phone calls and despite having made an arrangement with AT&T, they turned the phone off anyway. So, communication is a flop, too. I am in the midst of summer classes and paying for them, mind you. I also have reduced income because of taking 2 weeks off work to take classes. So, on top of trying to stay awake in class, trying to get a Dr to ok the surgery to hopefully fix the sleep apnea, and… Continue

I've finally made a Squidoo lens for The Chieftains
. I kept putting it off because I know they've got a ton of CDs out there and there always seemed to be other artists I wanted to build lenses for. Then I got involved in creating web pages at my own Have Pun Will Travel
website - see my last post for more information about that.
Yesterday I got caught up on making pages for my… Continue

Last year I return to my home town, and during the local festivities I see the tradition became allied of the badness of some ignorant persons. I was surprised because, I came to live for one of the streets where the bulls are released during the local festivities, because it is near to the square of bulls, and for some hours people can play with the bull(s). Never thought I could seen people treat so badly the animals, and it real made me be very… Continue

Rather than create more Squidoo lenses, lately I've been taking the info from the Celtic Music lenses
and making web pages at HavePun-WillTravel.com
. 22 of the lenses are for artists, CDs, Thistle & Shamrock and of course LiveIreland.com. The 23rd lens, which I made to guide people to the others, isn't much use on the website, so I wrote an… Continue

There is a group near here in Florida called New World Celts that try to keep the culture alive here in the Colonies--joined live Ireland to make some old world Irish friends, especially those liking traditional Irish Music.
I have visited Ireland 3 times and taken my daughters there. We saw the farm where my Great Grandfather was born and drank some Irish Whiskey in the house where my Grandfather was born in Barraduff.
Thought it a hoot that I've lived in Florida so long and found a… Continue

I've signed up for Twitter, the social networking site where you can post what they call "tweets" - short messages of 140 characters or less about what you're doing. People can sign up to follow your tweets if they like, just as you can follow others.
I imagine some people spend a lot of time posting tweets. Seems like it would be something teens would get into so their friends can follow their every move. I'll be using it now and then. One reason I signed up is so I can put out… Continue

The reason for this blog is the European Soccer (football) Championships, which is the current big sports event that nearly every dutchman has his mind set on, this year hosted by Austria and Switzerland.
The Dutch team:
Whenever large groups of Dutch (go abroad to) suppport a national sports team (really, any sport), they dress up in all kinds of various ridiculous costumes that vary each year, although some remain popular… Continue

En más de alguna oportunidad me he preguntado lo rápida que pasa la vida y si uno logra la felicidad. Y más me cuestiono cuando veo cómo las personas dejan este mundo muchas veces sin logar cumplir metas que tanto han anhelado y han dejado de lado muchas veces la felicidad de compartir con los que más quieren o de simplemente hacer lo que ellos más desean por lograr un mejor status social. Cuando veo personas conocidas fallecen abruptamente más trato de disfrutar cada minuto y de las cosas más… Continue

I am the catalyst
Mere casuistry of modern faith
I walked the land in search of you
Thou I knew little-
least of all your name
Your birth not realized yet
mine, an extension of my fame
I scoured the winding slopes
In search of truth
I discovered change
Ireland, sweet Ireland
land possessed by itself
No greater beauty had I found
A country’s… Continue
