MYTHICAL IRELAND

This post just in from mythical Ireland. (I'm not usually keen on snow on the cooleys and wear an extra pair of boxers to be sure ;)

Hello again to everyone and greetings in this the season of Imbolc. I hope those of you in the northern hemisphere have started to notice a "stretch in the evenings" as we say here in Ireland. From now until Bealtaine, 1st May, you should notice a good weekly increase in the amount of daylight, with the sun's setting position on the horizon moving quickest at the time of Spring Equinox in March.They have also added a new Photo of the Month for February showing snow-covered Cooley Mountains, which they took this morning at Blackrock, County Louth.http://www.mythicalireland.com/photos/photo-of-the-month.php

What are you doing in my neck of the woods..?

And that house on the promontary - that was my landlady's house, when I was a wee nipper. As far as I know they still live there...
