Tired of all the bad news

While we can't deny the difficulites for so many people at home and overseas, it's important to take account of the positives, and to spread the Good News. I don't know who said this but; "No-one ever injured their eyesight by looking on the bright side." Blessings..

Doing my bit for The Gathering 2013... Part 2

I'm posting a few more photographs I've taken from around Ireland over the last few years. They are scenes from summer and winter, urban and rural. We do get a lot of rain, and more than our fair share recently, but, 'rain, hail, or shine,' we have a lovely country and that is the good news. Ceád fáilte rómhaibh go leir...
