Our flight is booked! Brian and I have always wanted to go to Ireland and next Spring, we are going. Thanks to a generous gift, we will be going to Ireland to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary.
We're going to be brave (or stupid) and go alone, renting a car and driving around the country on our own.
For those of you wondering ... yes, we will be dropping by Bono's house. No chance of seeing him - not sure I'd want to anyway, but I hear his gates are something to see. Here's a pic and then you can read what they say.
In the service of God one can learn three things from a child and seven from a thief. From a child one can learn 1) always be happy 2) never to sit idle 3) and cry for everything one wants. From a thief you should learn 1) to work at night 2) if one cannot gain it in one night to try again the next night 3) to love one's co-workers just as thieves love each other 4) to be willing to risk one's life even for a little thing 5) not to attach too much value to things even though you've risked your life for them just as a thief will resell a stolen article for a fraction of its worth 6) to withstand all kinds of beatings and tortures but to remain what you are and 7) to believe that your work is worthwhile and not be willing to change it.
