Hello again!!!!my new clothes dryer arrived this morning which can (make one happy, that's the Queens English) just as well that I'm not English, I come from the olde emerald isle, the land that has 40 shades of green, and leprechauns if you can find one, terrible little blighter's they are good at hiding because they are protecting their pot's of gold... lol

There is also the blarney stone which is said to give the gift of eloquence to all who kiss it. Kissing the stone is for some people a difficult physical feat. In past times, to kiss the Stone people were hung by their heels over the edge of the parapet. One day a pilgrim broke from the grasp of his friends and went hurtling downward to certain death. Since that time the stone has been kissed by another method. First, you sit with your back towards the stone and then someone sits upon your legs or firmly holds your feet. Next, leaning far back and downward into the abyss while grasping the iron rails, you lower yourself until your head is even with the stone to be kissed.

The term Blarney mean's the ability to influence and coax with fair words and soft speech without giving offense'. Echoing the power of the stone, an Irish bard of the early nineteenth century, Francis Sylvester Mahony, wrote:
There is a stone there,
That whoever kisses,Oh,
he never misses
To grow eloquent.'
Tis he may clamber To a lady's chamber,
Or become a member Of Parliament
Now last but not least there is the famous guinness, (and in my opinion it's disgusting) so here is a link to the story/history to Guinness..............http://www.guinness-storehouse.com/

My First Time

here it is my first blog..... It was a long time coming been thinking about it for ages but a bit scared to start, this is all new to me, but I will have a go at it and see what happens...

As you can see from my title, I am like so many women a victim to sports TV, No matter what kind of sport, my dear husband will watch and watch it for hour's and hour's, only moving from chair to go to loo or when the TV adds come on, and when I ask him a question I will get a nod or a hum mm, "aw bless him"

Lets see where this little blog of mine takes me.......
