Thank Goddess the Season of Cheer is Over

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…

Athbhliain faoi shéan agus faoi shona dóibh!

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…

red heads

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

moving to Ireland

I am always interested in hearing from people who are interested in moving to Ireland...i like our cottage in County Tipperary because it reminds me of the place where i grew up i Western Pennsylvania..... a place that no longer exist....a few years ago i revisited my beloved valley in the rural area just north of the city of Pittsburgh. BUT it is "rural' no more...nothing remained to remind me of the place of my youth that i loved so dearly....

what a joy it was to find in Ireland a…

The Light of the World

Christmas this year gave me a time to reflect on the real reason why we are all here. We all have our own beliefs but Jesus came so that we could understand who we are and are to become in Christ. His human sacrifice was given by God so that it could be the one and final sacrifice to save us all ( those who choose to believe). Jesus came once to die for us and will return again to take us all home to the place that he told us that he would prepare for us. Please read below and I…
