Put a little Irish in your soul!

Whether you live in Ireland or have visited or are planning to visit, the experience definitely puts some Irish in your soul!  What do I mean?  Well, whether it's the music, the people, the sights, the experience, the craic... it all creates a feeling of home and friendship that transcends time and distance that with a quick smile and a warm thought brings you right back!   Now after that lovely thought comes the shameless product plug as we have to pay for the tea & tart somehow!  How about putting some Irish in your sole?!   Help spread the...

Summer time tunes

So here's summer!  So what are you listening to???  I suppose that your choice says something about your preferences, age, etc... but really, who cares!  We like what we like so if it's DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince doing Summertime, Mundy singing July, Mungo Jerry singing In the Summertime or even Alice Cooper with his classic Schools Out for Summer go ahead and turn the tunes up, take the top down, soak up the sun, have some fun and don't let it be a Cruel Summer!
