Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

41 Years Ago

Fun trivia department: My neighbor rightly brings up that, forty-one years ago another cool white guy was in the limelight of the pop/rock music scene. His name was Eric Burdon and his band was The Animals.
How did such a youngster manage to nail the Delta sorrow of the old chestnut Saint James Infirmiry/House Of the Rising Sun? (Which also mutated into The Streets of Laredo.) Still sounds great 41 years later. How many pop tarts around now will we be able to say that about?
