Quote of the Week

Because you are in control of your life. Don't ever forget that. You are what you are because of the conscious and subconscious choices you have made.

What's Your Favorite Color?

Ok, I can't say I agree with everything that this result says but I can admit to loving the colour purple! :-)

Your Favorite Color is Purple

You are an original, creative, and unique person. You definitely do your own thing.

You're known to be very independent. You never follow trends, and you're very different from everyone else.

You see the world with an open mind. You're ready and able to be inspired by anything.

You've live an unconventional life, and you're proud of it. You are tolerant of others, and you expect them to be tolerant of you.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

I hope everyone had a happy St. Patrick's Day. I missed the parade in Cork but got to see the Roaring Forties play and a group of drummers that were amazing! The day was made all the cheerier with some excellent hot chocolate and some toasty hot toddies!
