It’s Halloween. I have mixed emotions about this day now. I can remember the times from my childhood trick or treating where we would walk for blocks and blocks all over Ozone Park and come back with a huge haul of candy. Back then, you just didn’t worry that much about walking far from home […]


Phobophobia

30Oct12

I had planned to write about fear all along with Halloween coming tomorrow. It seemed like a good topic that could bring some interesting conversation. With all that has happened in the last few days with Hurricane Sandy and the destruction left in its wake, it seems like an even more appropriate topic. We all […]


I know I said I would post yesterday regarding my highs and lows for the day, but of course doctor’s appointments got in the way. That’s okay though, because it actually gives me a high and low to talk about for the day. Up to that point, the high of the day wasn’t going to […]


I really like that song, by the way. Marvin Gaye and Tami Terrell do a great job with that one. And it does help a little bit for me to segue into today’s topic. It really concerns something we have started doing on a regular basis here at home and I have to give credit […]


Okay, so I have been more than a little busy the last week and haven’t had time to get over here, but here I am right now for a quick post. It’s been a pretty good ride since Ireland. Putting the doctors appointments aside (three this month, one still to go) which are kind of […]


So Here We Are

15Oct12

That’s probably the best way for me to start this off today. Here we are again, all the running around is over with and we’re back where we started. But are we really? Okay, the question really should be am I really? I don’t think that I am. Fourteen total hours on an airplane gives […]


So the trip is over and done. We had a rather uneventful return after we spent the last morning in Dublin walking around and getting some Irish wool for some friends. We then had a quick lunch at the hotel and waited for our car. And waited. And waited some more. We then asked the […]


After spending the entire day at the Guinness Storehouse, we were feeling pretty good since we had a lot of Guinness at this point. We had about 90 minutes at the hotel before we were supposed to head out to Whelan’s Pub for the shows that night. They had not announced what headliners would be […]


We had gotten all of our arrangements finalized with Guinness and the contest people the day before. Guinness would have a whole day’s itinerary for us when we arrived there and I asked us what time we would like to arrive. Michelle and I both agreed it might be good to get there earlier so […]


We purposely woke up early on day 2 in Dublin for several reasons. First, we wanted to have breakfast. Breakfast was included in our package at the hotel, so we wanted to check it out. Second, we wanted to get an early start and do some sightseeing. Neither of us seemed to have much of […]
