Summer of my discontent!

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

New Lens for The Chieftains

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

GIVE SOME DIGNITY TO ANIMALS!

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

New Website Pages from Lenses

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

New World Celt

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

Twittering

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

Dutch Culture 2: The Orange Feeling

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

Lord of the dance is back......

A Greek word of wisdom says; " The criminal always returns at the crime scene".....

This superb irish dance show will perform again in the city which really loved it. The top of the irish dance shows, promises an unforgettable performance to the Greek crowd.....

Felicidad

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

The Road of the Righteous, The Pius-Thus The Saint

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

of Eire

In search of truth

I discovered change



Ireland, sweet Ireland

land possessed by itself

No greater beauty had I found



Immense dignity

and still…



A country’s… Continue

Whew!

I seem to have misplaced a lot of my time. For the last week, I haven't been able to really finish anything. It's not for lack of trying, believe me, I try harder and harder, but it just doesn't happen. I think the days are getting shorter! Sure, the sun's up longer but that's all part of some great big government conspiracy to fool us into not noticing how much less time we really have. You get it? Really, I'm grasping at straws trying to figure out how it is that, though I bust my ass all… Continue

Clannad, De Dannan and Grada - New Squidoo Lenses

Over the past few days I've added three new lenses to my Squidoo set of Celtic Music lenses. There are now 18 lenses for artists and groups, plus one for The Thistle & Shamrock, LiveIreland.com, and the Celtic Music Lenses lens which lists all the others.



I was a bit surprised that there wasn't more… Continue

Dutch Culture 1: Driving in NL

Right so, I haven't uploaded a blog before, so I hereby got blog-deflowered or (b)logged, so to say :)

I decided to use this (irregular or infrequent) blog to explain some features of Dutch culture to the world.



I just received a text message from my girl friend that she's finally passed the driving exams, and so she can go pick up her license and drive out and about the country. I can almost hear the people on LI who know me thinking: But isn't he about 22 years old, so his… Continue

New Squidoo Lens for Planxty

If I'd set out to do the Celtic Music lenses in any kind of order, the lens for Planxty might've been among the first. The four original members, Christy Moore, Donal Lunny, Andy Irvine and Liam O'Flynn will be familiar to anyone with much interest in Irish music They helped popularize the bouzouki, a Greek instrument introduced to Irish music by Johnny Moynihan. Moynihan was a member of the group Sweeney's Men when he introduced it, and… Continue
