THE SHORT STORY CORNER : CHRONICLES OF THE LIVES OF THE COME-OVERS

Land of the Free





The trip to Ireland for the O’Connell family of Simsbury, Connecticut, was winding down in the western town of Ennis. John O’Connell, the family patriarch, conducted the tour that included all of the Art Museums, antiquity museums and plays that Ireland had to offer and his issue could stand. Paul and Peter, John’s two sons, waited their time to play golf at the world’s greatest golf courses only to be thwarted by rainy…

Finals in June! Finally!

I just submitted a request for my finals to be administered. I'll be taking Contracts first, then Torts, and the Criminal, all on three consecutive Mondays. These are all-day exams so I have to take a full day of work off for each. Total drag, since I burned through all my PTO when I had pneumonia. After I take these exams, it's on to the Baby Bar exam in July. That's going t be a proper bitch. Another all-day exam and this one's got a pass rate of only 17% to 20%. Two weeks ago I took an exam… Continue

Celtic Music: Sean Nos Nua

I've got another relatively quick lens up on Squidoo. This one's for Sinead O'Connor's CD Sean Nos Nua. This is another discovery as a result of listening to LI. Since the page is only about the one CD, it's the only one linked. I did find six YouTube videos and linked to them, plus a couple of more videos - "She Moved Through the Fair" and "Raglan Road" - which are not songs on Sean Nos Nua.



Have a look and… Continue

A long time ago ....

Once upon a time, a guy created this page (ohhhhh it's me :) )
but it was a long time ago.
I'm so busy in my work and with the sport that i don't have the courage to come here to say hello to people and listen good music.
but now let's say stop to the overload time of work !!!
I really need a break. Maybe i should really plan the trip to dublin !!!
I really missed the shows the great people here.
Hope to chat with everybody soon. (I already started tonight)

Celtic Music: Flook - New Lens on Squidoo

Listening to LiveIreland has gotten me back in touch with some of the music I'd listened to over the years. My listening gave met the idea to put up a Squidoo lens (actually a web page, but since the pages are meant to focus in on a topic, the Squidoo people call a page a lens) for Altan, which I posted yesterday.



For my second lens, I decided to feature one of my new discoveries resulting from listening to LI, so now there's a… Continue

WWF & Elephants hunts - Pls spread the word about them Sunday, 5:20 AM

WWF & Elephants hunts - Pls spread the word about them Sunday, 5:20 AM



Elephants

The WWF believes that culling—another way of saying “killing”—elephants is acceptable, as is the trade in ivory, because the profits that it brings spur governments to keep elephants from going extinct. In 2000, U.S. News & World Report reported that WWF representatives traveled to Nairobi to ask the United Nations to lift the ban on the ivory trade in order to allow a “sustainable harvest… Continue

Playing music again

I have gotten back into play my violin again, slow going but still. I have been looking for free sheet music online for Irish music and other items. I lost a lot of my music because of my dad loosing the house I grew up in so I'm trying to rebuild my collection.

My Place

Well, here i am.

A place to put my ideas, to try my English...

Not that i have a good English.

Not at all.

Well, about ideas.

What kind of ideas i have?

Sometimes i'm a jerk. Sometimes i'm crazy, mad, whatever...

Sometimes i'm quite normal...

Sometimes i'm god, sometimes i'm devil.

Sometimes i'm nothing.



I'm 34, i have wife and children, i love rock'n'roll...

I dream of a life i can't reach.

I make choices i can't… Continue

Unknown Path / Anaithnid Ruthag

Sometimes on the path of life we come to a point that we can not reverse. Called the point of no return... We hesitate to go forward, with afraid to take a step forward, when faced with the unknown. But, from that called point of no return, we can no longer go back. Stop it is impossible... Then, we can only move forward... Even if it is to enter in a world that until then, we were unaware of the… Continue

Judge Tenderly Of Me...........

THIS is my letter to the world,
That never wrote to me,-
That simple news that Nature told,
With tender majesty.

Her message is committed To hands I cannot see;
For love of her, sweet countrymen,
Judge tenderly of me !

EASTER 2008

HAPPY EASTER



Easter is the commemoration of Jesus' resurrection, universally celebrated by Christians around the world. Although how and even when Easter is celebrated varies greatly.



Both Western Churches (Roman Catholic and Protestant) and Eastern Churches (Greek and Russian Orthodox) celebrate Easter on the first Sunday following the first full moon after the vernal equinox.



There are as many as five weeks between the two Easter celebrations. In the Western… Continue

The Essence of Music. PT.1

I've been involved in music all my life. My father played the push button accordion, the Jews Harp, the mouth organ, the six string acoustic guitar with a steel slide as well as yodeled and sang. My Mother, as a child, won awards for her tap dancing, sang, played the piano, took part in small plays and always assisted back stage in small functions. So no wonder I had a love of music. I remember we used to sit around the piano on Friday nights, playing and singing all the old songs for example "… Continue
