Ire land truly is a beautiful place. It is my home and birth place in mind body and soul. I live in CO but I plan to move there someday. Thanks for thinking so highly of my country. It really means alot to me.
I loved my flowers! You are so thoughtful! Shhhh! don't tell anyone, but I'm blushing! :-) Grazie, Belloumo!
I rented a Netflix movie recently that you might find interesting: "Veronica Guerin" with Cate Blanchette, about the enormous drug problem in Ireland in the mid 1990s. Guerin was a well-known reporter who investigated the drug trade and was murdered by the syndicate. Her death galvanized the people to do something about the 15,000 a day who were on the methadone program...some as young as 15. Within a week of her murder Parliament passed a law allowing the confiscation of the assets of those suspected of profiting from the drug trade.
Check it out if it sounds interesting to you.
So GLAD you liked "Micheal Collins!" I knew you would! I've missed talking with you. Tanks for the New Year wishes. I missed being able to tell you "Nollaig Shona Duit" at Christmas time, but I'll say it now. Don't you just love gaellic? :-) It looks nothing like it sounds!
Work keeps me from hanging out on liveireland, which I hate! But maybe I can make a change in the new year.
