You just know it's going to be a great wedding when this is the song the bride and groom request for their first dance!

And it was!

I still sometimes can't believe I get paid for doing this!

Have a happy Sunday.

Drink & Drugs

Croagh Patrick. Co. Mayo


For the kids today, which, do you think is the bigger problem. Alcohol or Drugs?
And which do you think is the bigger addiction.
And which do you think is the worse addiction.
And do you think, as I do, that one can drink without ever becoming addicted?
And do you think, as I do, that one can never take drugs without becoming addicted?
I am very interested in your opinion.

I will be away for the next few days. For I will be off to climb a few mountains.
In more ways than one.

I expect you all to behave while I am away!

Here is my first mountain. (Top of page picture.) It's known as the Holy Mountain.


We're back, and two of us made it to the summit!
There were many people on the mountain and the weather was good.
But the going was tough.
And it was, literally, a constant uphill struggle!
On more than one occassion I was willing to turn back and call it a day.
But Helena, 'the Youngest', would say each time, "I'll keep going if you do"!
How could I NOT go on!
Just 11 years old, the wax still warm on her birthday candles, and full of dogged determination!
There's a lot to be learned on a mountain.
More to come.

And thank you for your views on my question.
More to come on that too.

Kate, Anna, Helena.

I love you more than you will ever know.

And just because I love this.

(sorry Jimmy)


So today is the first day of rehearsal for my new act.
The act is called 'TAT 2'.
We hope to be on the road within four weeks.
(I say today, I haven't gone to bed yet! hic!)

Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya, tomorrow!


And for my friends Down South

Quiet Again (for a little while)

Got up late today.
To an empty house.
They've all gone to the Clare coast to celebrate a christening.
And I thought it would be relaxing to be home alone.
But it's not.
It's too quiet.
Yeah, this house needs people!
And so do I.
