Enjoy a glimpse of the beautiful landscapes, flora and fauna that populate this jewelled isle! I’ll try to load in more photos as I get time to scan them. I took that trip back when I still had a film camera 🙂

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

St. Patrick’s Day is a day for everyone to drink Irish beer, to eat corned beef & cabbage, and to celebrate the great traditions of the Celts and Irish!

What are some flowers to decorate your Irish-themed event with? Roses are always romantic and popular – think of “My Wild Irish Rose”! Foxglove represents youth and innocence. The Bells of Ireland are lucky flowers, for starting new projects. Heather is not only very traditional in Ireland – but different colors have different meanings! Pink is for luck, purple is for admiration, and white is for safety.

Be sure to avoid lilacs and apple blossoms! Both are thought to be unlucky in Irish culture.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

It’s the day to let those who you love know it! Call up your family and friends. Let them know how much you care for them. If you’ve got a partner, snuggle up. If you don’t, hang out with friends or pamper yourself for the evening! I’ve finally finished watching all Native American movies Netflix had to offer. Now it’s time to finish revising my book on Native American romantic traditions!

Organization Tips

We had our deck nearly fall off the house last week, so we rented a dumpster for a week and are throwing the old wood pieces away. On one hand the place is a mess – but on the other hand, we’re doing a lot of cleanup that was much needed. If you’ve got clutter, I’ve got a lot of tips on cleaning and organization – “http://www.lisashea.com/lisabase/cleaning/organization.html”Organization Tips

Carlito’s Way

In my quest to see all movies with Viggo Mortensen in them I just saw Carlito’s Way, starring Al Pacino. I have no idea how I had not seen this before. It is very interesting because many of the main characters are supposedly hispanic, but are played by non-hispanics. Why didn’t they use hispanic actors? Only Luis Guzman – from Puerto Rico – was of proper heritage. “http://www.lisashea.com/hobbies/viggo/films.html”Viggo Mortensen Film Listing
