Woke Up With This Song in My Head

Standard

I love this song- it’s so fun and reminds me of childhood and all the little stories I loved such as the Owl and the Pussycat, the one where the dish runs off with the spoon, the cute forest creatures of Beatrix Potter and of course, the Wind in the Willows. Enjoy a Song for the Children by Jimmy Buffett

Happy St. Pat’s Day Weekend

Standard

Since it’s St. Patrick’s Day weekend, I’m planning to watch one of my all time favorite Irish movies, Michael Collins. That man was truly what I would call one of my bad boys. He was strong, full of conviction and even though he was hated by the British, he did what he needed to do to stand up for what he believed even to the point of dying for those beliefs. This movie somewhat romanticizes what happened in the fight for Irish independence but it’s a good film. I love the way the cast relates to each other and the scenery and cinematography are superb. It doesn’t hurt that Alan Rickman, Aiden Quinn and Liam Neeson are easy on the eyes, too. Enjoy the day, drink a toast to your favorite Irishman and watch a flick.
