Careful, Amos, you'll turn this into a music thread yet. They'll bump it upstairs and who knows who will drop in! (Glad you're having such an adventure and charming all with your music!)

Friday we wandered through the highs and lows of Dublin City to a wee fine old pub called The Cobblestone, and who should file into the pub while we were sipping porter there but the very man himself, Kevin Rowan, heir and master of the legacy of five generations of Uillean piping. His wife and two granddaughters and he set up with flute, half-pipes, fiddle and concertina and proceeded to light up the place with the finest of jigs, reels and hornpipes. Kevin Rowan one the Oirechatas Festival first place award in 1991, the same which is great great-uncle had one a hundred years before. Talk about the stream down the generations. Then in came an old granny, no relation, with a fine bodhran and she chimed in in perfect time with a wicked tipple. Then another young man with a guitar gently chimed in to support the magic. What an afternoon! If we hadn't been due to catch the train to Sandycove we would have stayed the day out just for the toe-tapping music.

have spent the last week exploring the River Shannon, the great silver water that runs down through the center of Ireland. My means of exploration was a 30-foot barge-shaped cruising boat, purpose designed for rivers and canals, and the two of us were thrilled and delighted with every turn we took, from Athlone's Killinure Point north to Carrick, east to Lough Key and the strange castle that sits on an islet there, north to the beautiful village of Leitrim, and then south again through Rosskey, Tarmonbarry, Lanesborough and back across the wide Lough Ree to our home base at Quigley's Marina.

Then we spent two deliriously fine days traipsing across Dublin thanks to a dear friend who knows every turn of Irish history by heart. We took the light rail down to Sandycove, where--be still my heart!--we climbed the very steps of Joyce's Tower where stately plump Buck Mulligan once carried his shaving dish to intone the blessing of the sea over his morning ablutions.

In Athlone I had the rare treat of singing and playing for a grand gathering of spirited Irish folk in the oldest pub in Ireland, Sean's yclept, reputedly founded in 900 AD.

Here's to the Irish, God bless them high and low.

Public-Private Partnership. It's a fancy name for privatization (AKA getting paid under he table to sell public institutions/resources to the private sector).

What are P3s?

I saw MOM heading up to the attic this afternoon. Something about pulling out stuff for fall. Halloween and Thanksgiving and Christmas lights and ornaments, and orange vests to wear when out and about so no hunters blow her or any of us away. Sounds like the deer population around the house is growing.

Research P3s. They have cost Ontario billions of dollars. They cost us big time right now. They always cost more and you get less. Simple example : If you can own your own home rather than paying rent, it costs less.

P3s just make money for someone other than taxpayers... EVERY TIME.

Why do governments want P3s for schools and nursing homes and hospitals and highways and water/sewer... the list goes on...? Well, they are abdicating direct responsibility for running public infrastructure as well as trying to play with the books to make themselves look good. They are saying that no NBers are smart enough to run our public infrastructure... really? Remember when they told us Jean Charest could run NB Power better than we could? They tried to sell NB Power to Quebec??? Now they want to sell everything to P3s?

I think something has already been sold. Our politicians.

Just one more thought. Close schools and build a downtown hockey rink in Moncton? The job of our three levels of governments is to manage and tax land use... NOT to be in business. If Mayor George wants a hockey rink, he should go to a bank and borrow the money to do so on his own dime... and pay taxes on the land he buys rather than expecting taxpayers to be on the hook for his pipe dream. It's about time these politicians learned that, if they want to be in business, they should get into business... ON THEIR OWN.

BREAKING :

New poll says 0% of Canucks will vote Blue.

Based on a poll of one, CPC is screwed. In a bold move, Owenspolls contacted one person, and asked him if he would vote CPC. In addition, they requested that the answers be allowed to be made public in quotes. The respondent said, "Sure. I don't give a shit."

The lone respondent said, "Not a chance in hell." The next question was "Who would you vote for if the election was today?" and he responded, "Are you shittin me? I ain't tellin youse guys! Don't call me again ya stunnedasmearse!" and he slammed the phone down.

Owenspolls says the poll and it's projection of election results are accurate 20 out of 20 times with no damn chance of any error unless the election is suspect. When contacted for clarification of the accuracy, the representative for Owenspolls, a Mr. Gary Owens, said, "Shit Harpers... ah... happens. Look at the last few elections."

Stephen Harper was asked about the poll by the CBC. He responded, "We are well aware of Owenspolls and CSIS has been dispatched... rather... asked to monitor Owenspolls for any wrong or evildoings. You can never let down your guard in order to keep Canadians safe from Canadians. A vote for the CPC is a vote for vigilant safety in these dangerous times. You... you work at CBC? What's your name?"

He's a mean one, he is. You'd best put a 24 hour watch on him, and don't let him have ANYTHING. If you give him so much as a tooth brush you'd best could the bristles when he finishes using it. Once he turned a slice of bread into a piece of burning toast using nothing more than his own intelligence to guide him! I personally have seen him turn a perfectly good G7 chord into a thing of absolute terror! Keep him locked up and do body cavity searches every hour -- he's a tricky once, he is!

"Forgive me Father, for I have sinned. I lied." "Why did you lie, my son?" "I was asked a question and, if I told the truth, it would have curtailed me helping the person that asked me the question." "So, you lied to help this person?" "Yes, Father." "Fuckin great job, my son!"

At least, that's how I would imagine it should go.

I used to post about trying to do three good deeds a day. For over a week, I have had a hard time just standing up so the 3-a-day stuff is toast fer now. I can walk at times but I have to walk... I cannot walk slowly and that's how Mum walks, at a crawl, and with frequent stops. It's excruciating pain. Today, while walking Mum around Sobeys, an obviously "distressed" woman was babbling about egg rolls. I asked if I could help. GODSEND! I asked Mum if it was okay for me to leave her and show the woman where the egg rolls were and she agreed. That meant that I could actually walk at a reasonable pace AND do a good deed. Made my day.

Plus, I wrote another great short story outline and advanced a discussion about the Unfair Elections Act in Canada with my keen insight. All in all, not a bad day.

I assume that the above really doesn't contribute to the MOAB in any substantial manner but neither does the ******, IMO.

One does not learn the Hran. One learns the music and applies innate skills and abilities to enhance and, at times, lead the pieces and songs being played. It's akin to one's heartbeat being manipulated by one's mind to produce a joy in one's spirit and share it with all. Of course, the fucker's that just bang a drum incessantly and loudly and think they are contributing ruin it for those who can actually play it.

Hobbling along, supporting herself with a broken cane, one foot in the gutter to that the cane would be long enough, holding her old bonnet out for spare change from passers-by, the hems of her skirts dirty with the debris of the streets, her poor old feet ill-shod....

It was well I found her, for she was about to beat up a cop again.

Anyway, I rescued her from durance vile and after collecting her things from the flophouse brought her safely home again.

Sheesh, there are wifi spots all over Europe and even Ireland. No longer are leprechauns employed as messengers or banshees used to cry out what's going on. You can even have Internet and Web access in your car, BOAT, bus, train, or plane -- or as you walk -- all over there. It's in pubs, restaurants, hotels, B&Bs, where ever there are people.

Amos' protestations are disingenuous in the extreme. He just doesn't want to have Dear Old Mom find out what mischief and worse he's up to!

Hence, I shall set in motion Der Altirischerinvestigatifnetworken and if he can't keep out of trouble we'll at least have some good laughs at his expense. I mean, really! -- asking a cabin attendant if she "if a genuine randy Brandi" after learning her first name and after being slapped down telling her that "she's aged well."

That she may know, with great aplomb,
Her reach extends from sun to sun,
ANd reaches, still, her favorite one.
Although his boat is temper tossed
His link to Mom will not be lost
Providing only this, I think:

To drift along the Shannon's side
And perhaps go ebbing with the tide.

But know that we will all be here

Keeping Mom alive and well

But yet I fail to understand why
You think that Eire has no wifi!
It is damned near everywhere
And you can post whilst drinking beer.

And carry us across the azure summer skies
To Dublin town -- and there
We will rejoice in noisy streets (not unlike here)
But served with a better kind of beer.

Adieu, dear sibs of MOAB fame
Pray do not let decline or shame
Fall on Mom's honored halls.
Have balls.

While with cheerful gay abandon
Upon the wide and silver Shannon
Will make my way by river boat
(Hoping to keep the thing afloat)
And in pubs and villages make the ken
Of lovely maids and stalwart me
And turn, and drift back down again.

Adieu, dear friends--I will be nigh
But past the reach of most WiFi
And busy with my Irish host
Will not be able, much, to post.
So raise the standard, stay in touch
And each of you post twice as much!
