In Loving Memory

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

You say

One love

One life

When it's one need

In the night

One love

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

Well… Continue

It is so true ^^

Nicolas is always right, and even if sometimes he is wrong, it is that he is right to be wrong

What is Trevor's Hole

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?

Thanks Jackie

Where the heck am I and what am I doing?

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…

One year back

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

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
