An Irish Interlude

By , March 18, 2019

Stuff’s piling up here, folks.

As ever, the blog reflects what’s on our minds. Unfortunately, two major subjects weighing on our minds are not blog-worthy, at least for now. That distracts us considerably.

On top of that, our cell carrier’s tower has broken down. Amazingly, we still have phone coverage, and internet, although it’s spotty sometimes. I composed a decent post for today, but the internet decayed to the point where it didn’t save. I’ll reconstruct it in the coming days, but it will not meet today’s deadline.

So, since yesterday was Saint Patrick’s Day, I offer an Irish interlude, with more photos from our trip to Ireland last autumn (see Every Sign a Song Cue). Ironically, I managed to upload these photos, something the system seems reluctant to do since the tower went down. Enjoy!

This Christmas season, we did it again, expanding our selection and use. It’s time to share this with everyone, especially considering articles just out this season, like this one: It’s Officially Time To Ban Gift-Wrapping Paper.
