As most of you know our dear friend Leven from Live Ireland. She and her son received some tragic news this past week. Steven's father passed away on February 5, 2008. She asked me to let her dearest friends know. I know that most of you have known Leven for a few years now and she has become like a sister to me. This is a difficult time for her so please take the time to offer your condolences and your prayers would be appreciated. I have included a link to the Funeral Home which posts… Continue

It is so beautiful
Is it getting better?
Or do you feel the same?
Will it make it easier on you now?
You got someone to blame
When it's one need
In the night
We get to share it
Leaves you baby if you
Don't care for it
Did I disappoint you?
Or leave a bad taste in your mouth?
You act like you never had love
And you want me to go without

Nicolas is always right, and even if sometimes he is wrong, it is that he is right to be wrong
(Not sure if it 's correct)

Now I am going ti study celtic dances in Moscow - jigs, reels etc.
It would be my second experience in this area of life.
And what kind of music could you recommend me (groupes, folk singers, fiddlers, etc..)
Possible, De Dannan..

This is a question that has been very illusive to me. I have traveled to Roundstone IE after watching the movie "The Matchmaker" and one of my quest was to understand or find "trevor's hole" mentioned in the movie. My search on the internet has come up with only gay porn sites and I'm sure this is not the "reference" mentioned in this great film. Can Anyone help me understand and/or find this geographical or even mythical location?

Most regular chatters at LI know that I can't access LI from my workplace... but hey, thats not a problem today. I am at a conference work send me to and at least their WiFi lets me get here! :)
Waiting for the next session of the Lotusphere 2008 to start I thought I blog a bit.
Have you ever been to a conference? I have been to large trade shows in Germany where i am from originally, but not a conference like this. It has "only" 7000+ attendees, but thats still… Continue

A year ago I was in Hawaii, wandering through a rainforest, standing on top of a dormant volcano and running around the beach with a swimsuit model. Some of the best times of my life. Met people from all over the world there. This was to be the beginning of my travels and adventures (and Ireland was high on my next destination list)...
Things did not work out that way over the year. The friend whose couch I crashed on in Hawaii has since moved back to the mainland. I quit a job I hated… Continue

Finally, all the hype by advertisers for Xmas is gone, and gone with it the ads for booze and partying that go with New Year. To my great relief. I loathe Xmas - the expectations, the traumatic childhood memories, the shops full of carols and the drunken rioting by youth-on-the-Xmas-excuse, rampaging. Uggh.
However, on a lighter note, I've clocked the earliest hype for Easter that I've yet seen. K-mart, an Aussie grocery and cheap department store chain, has had Red Tulip Chocolate… Continue

That's a prosperous and happy New Year to you all! May all your changes be for the best.
That's my wish this year because I see many changes coming in my own life. #2 Son, the one who used to help me with the Wake Tent, joined the Air National Guard just before Christmas and will be shipping out for training soon. He'll spend six months in Texas (Sheppard AFB) and possibly more, depending where he interns after the training. He'll be an EMT (emergency medical technician or paramedic)… Continue

I get out of bed
And trip over my shoes
Put on the coffee
and check out the news.
I scan the obits-
To see if I;m there--
Put on my clothes
And comb my hair.
A look in the mirror
Finds a few more gray hairs
A new wrinkle of two
Have appeared here and there.
It's all part of life
I say to myself
We must keep on going
Or waste away on the shelf!
I reach for my… Continue

red heads are really rare in the US becuse all of us have mixed blood from different bloodlines and if you are a red head ENJOY your hair because you get allot of compliments from other people and they say "my you hair is beautiful" or " I LOVE your hair" or even "did you die your hair" and you reply yes or no if you say "yes" then they would say "what was your natural hair color" if you said "no" then its "Oh my gosh I love you hair I wish I had you hair"
so be proud of… Continue
