It was about this time last year...

It was about this time last year when me and my trusty side kick went for a play, stopped for a few drinks with friends, listened to some music, met more friends, attempted playing a tin whistle, had a few more drinks (maybe should have stopped drinking at this point), listened to more music, had a few more drinks, had the craic with friends and somehow managed to find our house (they all look the same at 5 in the morning).  That was just one magical evening during the Fleadh Cheoil na hÉirann here in Ennis last year and as...

What to do, what to do, what to do??

What to do, what to do, what to do??

Tired of talking about Russia, Brexit, politics? Why not go to the Zoo?!  What a great day out that includes fun, learning and best of all, animals!  We highly recommend Dublin Zoo, the Bronx Zoo, Woodland Park Zoo (in Seattle) and Utah's Hogle Zoo to name just a few!  There is so much to do at the zoo!  Besides, at some point in your life someone has probably said that you belong in a zoo so why not give into your wild side and have a zoo adventure today! (p.s. this is not me on a bad hair day)

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!

At last...

In our office it could be Pink, Niall Horan, U2... there's no telling but listening to the radio the other day and changing channels when what did our wondering ears hear… Something melodic, something simple, something seductive, something big, something amazing that had me turn up the radio loud and sweep us to another time, another place. These things happen all the time to all of us; maybe when we’re driving, at home, at a party or out for the evening when a song just grabs you and takes you to a wonderful place that is completely magical.  The other...

Voting, why do we get so crazy?!

Voting, why do people get so upset while expressing their choice?!  So the three of us in the office were talking about our positions on a very important matter and it started out with softly spoken opinions and in little time we all became entrenched into our beliefs without willing to concede the merits of the other view.  Eventually there was finger pointing, name calling and hurt feelings.  The final vote was one each for the two positions and one undecided.  How can we allow this type of behaviour when it comes to voting????  All this over...M&Ms or Smarties… by...
