  1. Today
  2. Paddy Maloney has left so much music behind for future generations to enjoy. Perhaps his greatest quality was his lack of snobbery. He worked with anyone from pure trad artists to pop stars. The Stones even appeared on an album by The Chieftains. Sinead O'Connor's version of "The Foggy Dew" stops me in my tracks every time. Good luck and goodbye Paddy, I'll see you further on up the road.
  3. Yesterday
  4. Paddy Maloney 83 years old.
  5. I saw all Vertigo shows, save one, in Chicago. I had great seats for every one. I had second row when they played my city. Still, I mourn not seeing the Vertigo stadium tour that hit Europe. I'm in bliss watching these right now. Thanks for posting.
  6. I had a day out today to a nearby town that I hadn't been to for well over 2 years. It's only about 15 miles down the road, but the landscape makes it feel like you've driven much further, with the hills and rural scenery. I borrowed 2 books from their library, bought 4 more at a lovely independent bookshop, had lunch, explored the town some more - including 2 small art shops/galleries - then went back and bought 2 more books from the bookshop. I was also able to add 2 more dictionaries to my language collection, as I found Czech and Hungarian dictionaries in a charity shop. It feels good to be able to have days out like that again, - and to be able to support the local shops, cafes etc in those towns as they're getting back to normal.
  7. Ciaooooo Milanooooo ! So happy they remastered those 3 beauties too !
  8. Thank you very much. I've not seen a Bond film with Daniel Craig. I want to see No Time To Die. I appreciate the heads up. My good thing: Coldplay is coming to Soldier Field in Chicago on May 28. I'm signed up for the verified fan thing on TM. I've also figured out a way to humbly ask the lady who comp'd me two tickets to the last Coldplay concert at Soldier Field (because it rained the previous Summer when Coldplay was at Soldier Field) for help. Man, I have balls when it comes to this stuff. Rock and roll, baby. The nervous 'I have got to get great seats for this show' rumination begins.' The first time I saw them was GA, Clocks had not been released, not many people were going to the shows and we were right in front. I'm spoiled. BONUS: Ticket prices seem to have come down by at least $50 for this tour versus the last. Yee Haw! My other good thing (equally unexpected) was running into this on YouTube: If you have not seen this, listen to what Sir Paul McCartney says at 1:50. It's quite funny and delicious. I am stoked about this. I did not know. 57 hours of footage? Peter Jackson does not take on small tasks. Wow. Very exciting. I guess I'm going to Disney.

  11. Today is World Mental Health Day as recognised by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations. It is a day to educate and raise awareness of mental illness and its major effects on people’s lives worldwide. The theme for this year is ‘Mental health care for all: let’s make it a reality’. Mental health issues have become one of Chernobyl’s biggest legacies. Many of those who were relocated after the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear accident now suffer from anxiety, depression and disrupted social networks - the traumas of displaced people everywhere. These conditions have health effects as real as those caused by radiation. The stress, depression and fear over the ongoing effects of the fallout have translated to negative conditions, especially for children’s health. This day of observation, now more than ever, is crucial, as it encourages us to open up about mental health issues and tackle the stigma, isolation and discrimination that continues to plague people with mental health conditions and their families. #WorldMentalHealthDay https://www.chernobyl-international.com/
  12. Today on United Nations International Day of the Girl Child, we at CCI stand with the global community to support girls’ progression everywhere. “We cannot succeed when half of us are held back.” (Malala Yousafzai) CCI's programme development is extremely conscious of the hurdles that face many girls, even in today's modern world. We believe girls have the right to a safe, educated and healthy life. Never underestimate the power of empowered girls. #dayofthegirl #girlsbelonghere https://www.chernobyl-international.com/
  13. Radioactive elements from Chernobyl have been detected in mushrooms in the south of Germany. Mushrooms, more than any other vegetable, concentrate radioactivity because their thread-like root systems spread over a large area for several meters on the surface around the plant.
