You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty. ~ Mohandas K.Gandhi (1869-1948)

On a lighter note, I think I would need faith to wear these:

I have heard of meals on wheels; but Legs on wheels!!

Well nailed!


Thank you Cynthia, the email arrived in the nick of time.

Beware the Fever

Ireland has been struck by Fever once more. It happens around this time every year.

We all heard of the

  • Celtic Tiger Flu – with a long slow recovery
  • Swine Flu – with all the jokes
  • Seasonal Winter Flu with coughs and sneezes &
  • Now we have the Blog Bug…..

This hear Blog Bug sets the whole country into a frenzy of reading, cogitating, deliberating and selecting of their own special favourites. Why you may ask?

It is all because the Nominations are now open for the 2010 Irish Blog Awards.

This year there will be a total of 20 different categories to choose from plus the category ‘Best Blog Post’ for that special single post you found stayed with you long after reading it.

A blog can be nominated in any category by anyone, but the blog owner can only accept nominations in one category (with the exception of Best Blog Post) to move the blog forward into the judging rounds. To be nominated the blog has to have been actively blogging between May and December 2009. Winners of each category will be sent forward into the Grand Prix category where they will compete for the title of “Best Blog 2010″.

So put your thinking cap on, there are plenty of worthy blogs out there to choose from, but hurry up there are only about 12 days to send in nominations.

The event itself will be held on March 27th in Galway, and from previous experience a great party is in store for all who attend.

Now the show must go on… so I am off to finish my LBC post for 1500 hours GMT. See you then.
