Just realized that I saw your discussion about Irish peat, a month ago when I first joined up. Did you get any peat? I still remember the smell of it after seven years.

Hello Sandy,
Do you have some photos of your work? I have a old friend that is a blacksmith. I am trying to get him to sign up here. He has some great Irish heritage mixed in the mutt stuff in his family. My dad had a forge when I was a kid. He had a crank on the blower. Being in the north are you able to get leather from the hunters?

To feed your dream: the 1st link is for a summer school re archaeology; 2nd link is to a blog that contains info on Irish companies that conduct digs.

hi sandy
never apppologize for getting on a soap box....if more people would speak their hearts and minds...especially the "good folks" and the "meek" who are never paid attention....the world might be a better place...it certainly would be more interesting...the Irish are wonderful in that they appreciate the quick quip and they ( unlike most americans ) know how to respond to the sarcastic barbs that comes their way. They DON'T take offense but come back with a well crafted zinger of their own...i love chatting with a race of "grownups" who dont have to preface EVERY remark with " dont get me wrong but...."
this year we lived in our cottage in Portroe for six months from january to august....with lIZ teaching at the university here in Costa Mesa California...(check Goggle earth for Vanguard UNIVERSITY ) we have only been able to spend summers there.

Portroe is just a couple miles from the lake on the Shannon River that was made to provide water for the hydroelectric plant in Limerick which once powered i/3 of ireland....

sorry if my comments about America troubled you....
I find Irish history every bit as sordid as our own....
"people" are fine, it is the "human race" that has brought so much grief to this beautiful planet of ours. mans inhumanity to man. but as an anthro student you know more about that than i do I'll bet.

Hi Sandy, Our Irish cottage has been a labor (ok, heavy labor!) of love for us. I fell in love with Ireland 40 years ago at age 19 so this is a dream come true for me. I taught at U of Limerick for my sabbatical semester Spring 07 but that was a one time thing. Next academic year I'm shifting to 1/2 time so we can spend 6 mo/yr in our cottage which is our heart's home. And we long for my full retirement so we can move there full time!

Hey Sandy how are you? Alaska must be so beautiful there. I would love to take a cruise to Alaska. My dad even lived in Nome for a while, thats way up North Alaska. Is there alot of good Salmon fishing in your area? My dad brought home a Polar Rug from Alaska when he was there. But sold it before he passed away...Take Care...HUgs

Sandy, where in eastern New Mexico did you go to school. I just graduated from ENMU, how long has it been since you were here? Clovis is booming and dairies are popping up all over.

Sandy Welcome to the new site here. Have you chatted on LI before? Love to see someone from Alaska here. My dad worked in Fairbanks for many years at the Motel there. I remember Mount McCkinley was there, beautiful mountain. He loved it there. That was after I was grown up and I never got there...he sent home lots of pictures...looks like lovely country. Glad to meet you...
