The Edge and his cousin, Ciara, have a special relationship with the utmost respect for each other. Ciara recently created her own podcast, focusing on people with disabilities and other matters that are important to her. Listen to her latest podcast where she talks with The Edge here:
PIty, I was bit late, but found something else and supported local store. Wish Fire can be found from on line store..
Hooray! There were copies left, I was able to purchase Fire after the store was closed.
I got botox shots for migraines, along with a couple others. I should get relief from what have been severe and non-stop migraines. The nurses told me I'm their favorite headache patient. I said, "Wow. Your job must suck." 😁
My Dad and I benefitted from a lovely act of kindness today.
We'd gone out to a nearby town to drop some books back at the library and borrow another one that I knew they had. We were just parking our car when a man, who was just about to leave, came up to Dad's window and asked if we wanted to make use of his Pay and Display ticket. He'd paid for two hours' parking, not needed all of that time and the ticket still had over an hour left on it. So we accepted.
The parking charge in that car park is only 50p per hour, but it was really kind of him - and we got everything done in that
I was just thinking about your assessment when I was walking my dog this past week. I now the pandemic interrupted the process, or something. Anxiety stinks. I'm very happy it was not so scary.
It's up! It's on! The music is announced. The website is running. I love the poster for this year. the doves make me think of All That You Can't Leave Behind. I mentioned this is the largest Irish Festival in America. They have an Irish musical history tent. The U2 board in that tent respresents them well, however, it needs to be updated to include IE/EI. I'm not sure how...I'm goi
The latest update from UEFA is that he is in hospital and "stabilised". A tweet from the Danish FA, if the BBC are translating it correctly, appears to say that he is conscious and undergoing further tests.
Thank goodness for that.
It was horrible to watch - especially when you realised they were doing compressions and saw the medic reach for the defibrilator pack. I started to cry when I saw that. As you say @Canadanne it makes you think of Fabrice Muamba and his incident.
It looks like a good outcome this time too. I hope he makes a full recovery.
I hope the Denmark an
Obligatory these days (Premier league teams, I know... but it's the spirit of it that matters) 😁
So that's the football! Coming up! Watch it! Watch the football! Watch it! Watch it! It's gonna move... Watch the football! It's football!!!
I always like the Netherlands being at tournaments because you know their fans are going to brighten the place up with those orange shirts. Even if there aren't quite so many fans at matches this time round.
And talking of Ukraine, there's a political row going on about their shirt. Russia have complained to UEFA because the Ukraine shirt for this tournament features an outline map of Ukraine that includes Crimea. Russia invaded Crimea a few years back in 2014 and regard it as theirs, despite the fact that most other countries condemned the invasion and regard Crimea as being Ukrainian.
She looks sweet!
GREAT day for sports for me.
I watched the men's final of the Frech Open. Tennis is my favorite sport to watch. Whoa. What a match.
The Milwaukee Bucks beat the Knicks, tying up the series. (Yesterday but super duper yay) We were down by two games.
I watched the Islanders get one step closer to what I think is going to end up being the Stanley Cup. They look great. Mathew Barzal is on fire.
The last dog in the line of Irish Terriers which is so very dear to my heart was shown for the first time this weekend. She got four points; emphasis on she.
Congrats. I'd pay whatever it took to see Dawes if they were saying farewell.
I've been going to see An Evening With Dawes shows for almost five years. It was no opening act. Two full sets. No encore. It's been a life altering experience. I saw well over thirty of these shows. I had to do accessible seating when the tour started. FF many shows. They were in Madison, WI. (only 80 minutes away from me). I could not take being in the seats. I know I had to grow some and go for it. I somehow got down to GA and up fairly close I had just had surgery and was suffering. During When The T
THAT was a stunning half of football!
The Dutch finally get the goals that were coming to them and they grab a fully-deserved two-goal lead. Then Ukraine score two excellent goals in about 3 to 4 minutes to get back to a draw. Fortunately for the Netherlands, they were able to get that crucial deciding goal late. The Ukraine/Austria fixture in that group when it comes will be an epic one - that game will most likely decide who gets to go to the knockout rounds.
I’m glad that England were finally able to win too. Let’s hope they can be more exciting later.
The Danish team doctor has been quoted as saying that Eriksen was “gone” (his actual word) before he was resuscitated by the paramedics. My goodness…there was just no warning - one moment, he is preparing to receive a throw-in; the next moment, he is just lying motionless on the pitch. Totally mind-boggling…
I’m just glad he’s still with us, and I hope the doctors can figure out why it happened. That was so frightening.
I’m no Liverpool fan, but I’ve always liked Bill Shankley’s quote
Some people think football is a matter of life and death. I don't like that attitude. I can assure them it is much more serious than that
President Biden (my gosh that feels great) came through this week with releasing vaccines to our neighbors and COVAX; 80 Million by the end of June; 25 million of them immediately. I heard or read that richer countries need to give 20% of their vaccines to the rest of the world for all of us to end this pandemic. President Biden surpassed that mark. What a difference an election can make. We may reach warp speed yet.
Trip to Banff townsite this evening snapshots to share. 📷
Simplify, slow down, be kind. And don't forget to have art in your life -- music, paintings, theater, dance and sunsets.

I've become friendly with our local record store owner. RSD drives a huge amount of business into her store. The band isn't going to see much revenue - particularly since they are only releasing between 5000 and 10000 units. But the local record store might see a month of sales revenue in one day. Instead of one or two people coming in and dropping $300, there might be 15 on that day (I know I've been guilty of that). And that's really the point. Kudos to U2 for helping encourage that.
If you look at the RSD list, you will find that a good number of the titles are re-releases, or live versions that sometimes can be found elsewhere. Sometimes artists do first run and those may or may not be special editions. This particular U2 release is a new picture disc that the songs have never been on. The bigger picture is that things released on RSD are to support locally owned record stores. So think of it not as what U2 are doing for you, but as what they (and you, if you choose to buy it) are doing for small business record stores.
