You know… this is rather an apt topic for today. Yep, today… 15 years ago we arrived at Dublin International. It was sleeting that day and we wondered what made us come from the southern hemisphere summer to freezing Ireland! … Continue reading
All my life’s a circle… sunrise to sundown. Yep… I’ve used those words before in a post. Words written by Harry Chapin… not mine. Yep… wise words. I wasn’t going to do a weekly challenge but then while looking back … Continue reading
Imagine this… 1156 unread mails in your inbox. High yes, but the number has passed 1250 once before. So… you may ask, what has that to do with the price of coconuts in Bali? Nothing really. But… and this is … Continue reading
Yesterday I mentioned walking around the Dublin streets and giving you a view of the Liffey nearer to the Dublin Port. However, I was telling porkies because I just can’t resist giving you another trio! This rather cute trio is … Continue reading

Where does one begin? To capture the essence of the human soul must be every artist or photographer’s dream. That precise moment when the twinkle in the eye is at its loveliest… or liveliest? Thirdeyemom sets this week’s tone… humanity. … Continue reading
This week Ben asks us to show something that means zigzag to us. He mentions the herringbone pattern or a scar… he shows an impressive zigzag flight of stairs in Braga, Portugal but he challenges us to show our own … Continue reading
