To warm the cockles of your heart

A little flashmob fun for Paddy’s Day, including part of the cast of Riverdance. For those who haven’t been to Sydney, they’re just going into Autumn there now, days are still warm, hence all the gals in shorts and very summery attire. And god bless ’em, could these guys be any cuter?

Sorry for the long pause between posts, I have been under the weather for almost a week know. Hope everyone is keeping well.

  1. Thanks, and thanks πŸ™‚ I am a little better, but still kind of foggy. Back to work, although I’m wimping out and driving in instead of taking the trains (cutting myself a little slack πŸ˜‰ )


      1. I second startingover’s remarks – driving to work while you’re still a bit under the weather isn’t wimping out, it’s sucking it up like the tough broad that you are.

        Just for today, I christen yuz Bridget O’Dame, and hope that St. Patrick sends a little strength & energy & joy your way. Now I must run – I’m cooking a corned beef for my spouse Paddy O’Fang, and I need to run out & pick up some cabbage.

    1. Thanks! Bridget O’Dame, hmmmm… considering the possiblities there πŸ˜‰ They had corned beef and cabbage in the cafeteria at lunch today. It was dreadful. I love cb&c, but not the way they made it. 😦 Wasn’t up to cooking it myself this year, at least not tonight. Maybe this weekend, and make some soda bread to go with it.


    1. I kind of thought you might be familiar with it πŸ˜‰ What a shame you couldn’t have been there to see it live! Have you ever seen Riverdance? I wouldn’t really recommend seeing it live. I saw it once and was disappointed to see a lot of numbers that were not Irish and incorporated other styles of dance and music. Bill Whelan was trying to be a little too multicultural for my taste. Not at all what I expected. I have the VHS tape of the show (I should probably upgrade to a DVD πŸ˜‰ ) and it really captures the best parts. The rest was pretty forgettable.


  2. Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you, DD! and best wishes for a speedy and full recovery in the near term. I made pancakes for dinner myself… does that count as a festive meal?


    1. In my book, festive is anything that gives you a little pick-me-up – it could be as simple as blueberries in my oatmeal, or those cute toothpicks with the cellophane ruffle on top, holding together my sandwich Fang likes to add a festive touch to his pancakes by putting chocolate chips in ’em, but that is a little too sweet 4 me..
