" Kiss me I'm Irish '

Sounds like a GREAT idea...

" Clumsy Lovers" perform on Valentine's Day.

This group is appearing on Valentine's Day Feb 14th at Paddy Flaherty's in Sarnia. Gee thats romantic laugh.gif I saw the ad/poster at the pub the other night. There is special menu for the event.

Also a show at the Ark in Ann Arbor, Michigan on Feb 17th.
Has anyone here seen this group perform live? Thanks for any info...

Unfortunately they aren't over here in the USA. But those in Germany, and surrounding areas have a great opportunity to catch their act the first part of the year.

If I had a wish to be granted,  I'd love to go over and see them "live".

Hi Annabelle,

It would be fantastic to go overseas to see the band. Let's alll keep an eye open for a USA / Canada tour in 2005....

Thanks for the website link. Think I'll get on the chat line and plead for a N. America tour tongue.gif

Always nice to get more info about Cape Breton musicians. Thanks for the link.
Do you know if the band members have re-appeared under another name?

I could not find anything with a google search for KILT and Cape Breton.

Thanks for the reply dfilpus.

Well I'll just have to see this group some other time...did not get out to the Ark rolleyes.gif They played the night before ( Sat) at a Pub in Grand Rapids.

So given a choice of seeing a fav group perform at a lively Pub on a Sat night...or a tea-serving formal looking venue with excellent sound, on a Sunday night unsure.gif ...

Which would you prefer? I'd take the lively Pub on a Sat night every time biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

"Nakina my Siberian Husky  " Mike

She's a beautiful Husky!!! (assuming by name she's female) I think my husky is getting jealous.... Good picture overall, thanks for sharing!


You're welcome. Nice try but he is a HE.

The name was taken from a map of Ontario...if you look to the North of Lake Superior where the roads end...you'll see the town of Nakina. I hear it is well know to local fly-in Fishermen.

Anyways it sounded like a nice name for my Husky. tongue.gif BTW he will be 10yrs old next March. That's getting up there for a male. I try to spend lot's of time with him knowing that they don't live as long as Human kids sad.gif

But he still has a playfull " spring " to him smile.gif

Could you send us a pic of your Husky?? Thanks.

Mike...and Nakina laugh.gif

I saw the "Le Vent Du Nord" on the Chieftains special and I was really impressed. Thanks for the link to their site. I'm going to check it out.

You are very welcome Keltic. I'm sure that you'll enjoy seeing them Live.

Has anyone here listened to or seen this group perform live? I'm thinking of going this Sunday night ( Ann Arbor Mi.) Heck that's only an hour drive for me smile.gif It would be nice to have some company...Anyone want to join me tongue.gif

The first pint is on me laugh.gif

Thanks for the warm words CelticRose. I'm still trying to find my way around the site. Hard to tell which posts are new. Any suggestions? Is there a "Newest Post" feature somewhere?
I'm having fun all the same...it must be due to this feeling of being surrounded by all this Celtic "stuff"

Thanks Brian I'll give that a try, but I don't want to rock the boat, so to say. I'm sure that the moderator could easily kick me right outa' here... as quickly as I have appeared angel_not.gif

Must say though that I'm having a hard time figuring out how to listen to Celtic music while surfing the forum posts. It comes and goes. I notice that the sound quality is not very good.

I have good speakers...

Quit yer complainin' Mike and just enjoy this excellent website thumbs_up.gif smile.gif smile.gif

Ah yes scrapbooks.

I have many but not the Family Photo type. I am working on a system of scrapbooks ( I call them binders) that keep all my recipies and gardening ideas nicly organised... each having their own binder. Of course I like to use page protectors...I'm a bit nutty for that wink.gif but it keeps everything neat and clean.

This past summer as I spent delightlul hours travelling thru rural New York State and Massachussitts, a great idea came to mind. Why not enlarge and store maps of various roads and highways. I would cut out smaller sections of maps like south shore of Boston for example. Well, now I can easily open a binder ( Travel ) and use it instead of trying to keep open a map that's 4 ft by 5ft sad.gif

One of my current projects is to make a binder of driving directions to as many Irish Pubs and Highland Games locations as I can think of within a few days drive anyways smile.gif

One day I hope to visit them all... yeah right

So I would say that there as many ideas for a binder or scrapbook collections as there are Pubs cool.gif

Hello everyone,

I'm new to the website and hope to meet and chat with as many of you as possible who love Celtic music tongue.gif I think it will take me a while to get used to navigating around the website but I am surely looking forward to it biggrin.gif

Take a peek at my profile where I have listed a few of my fav artists and bands. I've probably buggered part of it already sad.gif But comments are always welcome.

A bit about me...

I live in a country seeting along the beautiful St Clair River in Southern Ontario, Canada near tiny hamlet of Sombra. Gardening, canoeing and heaping lots a love on my two labs and Husky keep me pretty busy. I like to get out for a pint or 2 cool.gif at the local Irish pub. Travel destinations are Montreal and Boston as I have family there.

My Mum's from Edinburgh and Dad was from Germany...so there's some good blood in me angel_not.gif

Ok enough blather...here's to new friendships beer_mug.gif

Mike.
