40.....Old???? Age is a state of mind. You are only as old as you think you are. My wife's friends (mainly the women for some reason, generally never their husbands/boyfriends) would ask me "how does it feel to be.. "30", "40", "45"???" I responded "The same as it did yesterday, why?" People are to wrapped up in acting their age. My wife says that at times when I get together with my friends from high school (yes there is a group of about 15 of us. I graduated in '78 and we still see each other on a regular basis) get together we act like kids. There was the traditional Boxer short competion at each others weddings. Right smack dab on the middle of the dance floor. Granted we do some stupid things "for people our age" but who cares. We are having fun. whats the phrase. Life is wasted on the youth"
Just a quick *hugs* and hope you are doing fine. My better half just turned 40 last month and is hanging in there...of course, surgery she has tomorrow doesn't help her feel much younger.... its on the knee..but still... :-(....
Hi Lisa. Canada is definitely a beautiful country. As much as I love Ireland, I'm pretty dedicated to my homeland here too...which is as it should be! Yeh, the bellydancing was awesome, I hated to quit it but couldn't be out two nights in a week and I really wanted to keep doing my violin, so bellydance had to go...for now!
HI Lisa..just want to say I enjoyed the Irish Anthem video..brought back memories of our vacation there! Oh I loved it so! Just want to say that I took bellydancing for a couple of years...Loved it! Sounds like we have a bit in common! Hope we can chat in the chat room sometime!
wow, I was greeted by the sweet uilleann pipes when I came on your page. :)
I think it's going to be a great but hectic weekend. Lots of Carnavalperformances.
at 13:00h a carnaval procession in a neighbouring village, till about 16:00h.
at 16:30h party band rehearsal, till 18:00h
at 19:00h I have to be in another neighbouring village to play bass drum in their local party band. (their bass player was not available, so they asked me if I wanted to help out for once)
finally! Exams are over. :) tonight there's lager to celebrate it! Sorry for the cranky tone in my previous comment, I didn't intend it that way. I hardy had time to post it.
I had an exam in 16th/17th Century Literature on tuesday. On Thursday I had an exam in 18th century literature plus I had to hand in a Research Proposal Assignment and today I had an Exam in English Syntax Linguistics. did you have a listen at my songs yet?
I'm not having a great week, because I have exams, which are quite demanding.
All 3 songs on my own page were made by myself and the guitars in Summer Skanking I played myself (the rest is computer work)
PADI stands for Professional Association of Diving Instructors. I have been scuba diving since about 1983. I am a scuba diving instructor. More of a side job then anything. I've also worked as a salvage diver/biologist for a project off the cost of Rota, in the Marianas, recovering a Spanish galleon ship. It was hard work but lots of fun as well. There are other good organizations as well to become a certified scuba diver. Tom
thanks for the email. The mountain behind me is Mt. Rainier. I see you are from Houston. I graduated from Northbrook Sr. High (sping branch area of Houston) then went to SFA up in Nacogdoches. By the way, I like your selection of music you posted as well as listening to the Corrs. tom
Ah, could've guessed that. Well that's regular for many many people. My sister's husband gets up at 5 AM every day to get to work in time. He's an executive at a construction site, so he has to be there before anyone else gets there to make arrangements for them.
I just noticed that you say you are 39. For the record you only look 38 (ha ha ). I guess it is not too early to tell you that 40 is better than 39. In fact, it gets better everyday (until age 63, I am told). Us over-40s keep it a closely guarded secret so that people don't resent us. So eat, drink, flirt, listen to great music, buy a dog, sell your jewelry, go on a cruise, meet a stranger, and break his heart. It's is fun - even if your are the one getting the broken heart.
Hiya Lisa, I wish you no less. You were up early, this morning, if my calculations are correct. about 7:00AM. Right? You posted a comment on my page 3 hours ago, which is 16:00h here. Computing that you're 6 hours earlier over there, that means it's 7 o'clock in the mornin over there. What makes you being up so early?
yes, it is THE Martin.:)
A happy New Year to you. This website allows us to react to each other whenever we want (that means I don't have to stay up till 2 o'clock in the morning to have a chance chatting to you) and that is a wonderful solution. because I often entered the chat, finding nobody there. That is one of the reasons why I didn't show up that often anymore.
See you soon!
Lisa Happy New Year 2008! I hope all your Wishes come true! How have you been? I am doing ok. Just sitting back and resting here. Trying to stay warm. Today me and my hubby went to Red Lobster...mmmmm that food is so good1
Loads of Hugs,
