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

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

New Squidoo Lens for Loreena McKennitt

I'm glad I continued work on the lens for Loreena McKennitt, one of the six lenses I'd done basic work on several days ago, early in the day. While it was very warm yesterday, today was downright hot, with temperatures in the mid-90s, well above the average high even in mid-summer. Considering most of our days have had below-average temperatures since last September, it was… Continue

New Lenses for Enya & Silly Wizard

I was only going to do one lens today, the one for Enya. But as I was looking up information for her, I realized she hasn't released as many albums as I thought, and somehow I found myself looking at what Amazon offers for Silly Wizard.



I got Enya's lens done in plenty of time to get to work on Silly Wizard's. Amazon is offering five of their albums directly from them,… Continue

Guess who lost the "go" in "go for it."

It's only 2:41PM and I feel like I've been getting my arse kicked for the last 12 hours. I'm hitting the wall, folks. Energy is flagging, at best. Out of coffee. No hot water for tea. I had one apple left, but it was rotten on the inside. Pretty much this day is sucking like a major.

Guess who lost the "go" in "go for it."

Celtic Music - Two New Lenses

Yesterday I decided to get basic work done on six Squidoo lenses I knew I'd eventually want to get published. So I began setting up each lens, adding YouTube videos and photos or album covers, deleting stuff Squidoo puts in the basic setup and adding what I felt I'd need. Other than selecting YouTube videos, which goes fairly quickly since I just look for a good quality one that's long enough and if possible one I know I'll like, it's fairly… Continue

sorry...

...that I wasn't really communicating lately. A lot of other things to do with higher priorities...

I will fly to Spain tomorrow morning - very early. My stepfather is there and I will take him home with his car, because he's afraid to drive the long way back on his own.

So - take care and behave ;)…
