Berry Picking at Ballyteigue Burrow

There is nothing as relaxing or rewarding as a good berry picking session. I love blueberries, and I love blackberries, but we are lucky enough to have Dewberries growing wild in our locality. Dewberries taste like a mix of blue, and blackberries. Even the dog loves them.

Things: Rocks at Kilmore Quay

The rocks at the southern tip of Kilmore Quay Village are said to be 570 million years old. That kind of timespan is impossible to comprehend. They seem so permanent, yet they too are subject to the passing of time, the struggle against entropy: Just like us, but on a totally different scale.

The First Faint Noise of Gently Moving Water….

This scene caught my eye on a recent visit to Dun Laoghaire: The words of James Joyce in the foreground, and in the background, right of centre,  the controversial new library.

Review: Sight Sound, Surf-Movie

ssbannerTALL-625x316

Mikey DeTemple’s Sight Sound short surf movie showcases the talents of DeTemple, Chris Del Moro, Tyler Warren, Ryan Burch, and other hipsters as they score some awesome waves along the beautiful and diverse coasts of North and South/Central America, Canada, and the Bahamas. The soundtrack is pretty cool too: A chilled eclectic selection of electronica and indie featuring the talented Footprintz, Com Truise, White Denim, and more.

There is a nice variety of footage to suit most afficiandos: logging, short boarding, air-time, wipeouts, and Ryan Burch mixing it up with some hybrids.

At 37 mins the movie is a little short, but definitely leaves me wanting more….

March against Monsanto Dublin

Machholz's Blog

GMO

(NaturalNews) The worldwide March Against Monsanto takes place this Saturday, May 24th, as millions of people will once again gather to protest the despicable food imperialism practices of the most-hated corporation in the world: Monsanto.

Check out the official March Against Monsanto website for a list of cities hosting the event, covering every continent and nearly every nation on the planet.

Over 350 cities are hosting the event, including every major city in the United States. The mainstream media, however, will once again selectively ignore this event, as they are completed owned and controlled by the financial interests of their advertisers which consist largely of junk food companies using lots of GMOs. (Even the HFCS used in sodas comes from genetically modified corn.) The March Against Monsanto is truly the “million mom march” that the mainstream media is desperately trying to pretend isn’t taking place.

This year’s march takes place…
