.....to paraphrase a nursery rhyme!Well I did'nt get to London to see the Queen but I did....lots of gardening, such as watering as I cannot remember the last time we had rain here.Tomatoes are being eaten in every way shape and form and still coming, its mostly harvesting now as sweet corn is ripening fast too.No problem eating my 5 a day fruit & veg!
Attended a fund raiser for ARC House which is a cancer charity, it was organized by D.Michelle and her work mates, BBQ chef on the night was S.Billy, the rest of us just enjoyed the craic!
I was set dancing in Mallow to Johnny Reidy's band.Set dancing is a mainly Irish type of formation dancing, danced in sets of 8 people but not as sedate as formation dancing,lots of kicking up heels ansd swinging!This photo was taken at Laharn cross where there is open air dancing every Sun evening during the summer months, it did not have to move indoors once this year!
I was in Robert's Cove, alone and painted the outdoor furniture, picked blackberries and made jam.With the grandchildren on the beach making the best of the late summer sunshine before returning to school which they did on Wed
I have a website selling Irish Cds and soon DVds, I have uploaded lots of photo slides of the various musicians with a musical backing but wanted to upload video clips as some of the musicians have DVDs available.I have a DVD rewriter and copier but this only allows you to burn a copy of a DVD. I wanted to save clips to my hard drive and edit to upload to Youtube. I trawled the internet, I tried different downloads and eventually succeeded in transferring clips and uploading them to Youtube. I have a Youtube channel which is linked from the website so now buyers will be able to see some of the musicians live with a full length piece of music.This particular one is from open air dancing which is gaining in popularity again as it was the only type of dancing available long ago and every village had a platform for music and dancing.
In answer to Kathleen in the comments, the above video is taken from a commercial DVD but I can also take clips from home video if they are on disc as this one below is from
I have been busy while AWOL and have lots of allotment pics which I will upload in another post,hopefully tomorrow!
