  1. Just listened to your podcast of 10/26 – talking about our Ireland Gathering was great and brought back so many “happenings” and dear memories. It was like being there again. It was especially touching that being a north-sider alone and with strangers in the beginning of the trip, you all ended as my friends. The trip alone was awesome and being there where my ancestors lived was spiritual indeed. I have always wanted to go to Ireland ever since I found out that I was Irish as a child and at last you and my daughter, Kathy, gave me that grand opportunity. My blessing and thanks to all of you. What dear, sweet and happy memories I have within. I just loved it all.

    Planning to see you on Nov. 6 at Lizzie’s.

    With fondest regards,
