I finally decided to do a little reading about Ireland…

29 05 2007

….I identify as “Irish” and I know so little about being Irish (IMO) despite being Irish, growing up in an Irish neighborhood and having a name that couldn’t be mistaken for anything but Irish.

The book I’m reading is called “The Burning of Bridget Cleary” by Angela Bourke. Yes, this book has to do with the literal burning of a woman. The book is an attempt to analyze the reasons why this burning occurred, at the hands of Bridget’s own family, back in Co. Tipperary back in 1895. The author explores superstitious beliefs in fairies and attitudes toward “unconventional” women and childless women, in particular.

Had I been born in Ireland back then, I wonder if they would have burned me?

Many headaches are a result from not enough water in the body.
I can provide at least a dozen more testimonies of people who committed to the five steps aforementioned.

You should however ensure that your foods do not contain unhealthy fat since this is
the major reason as to why very many people are obese.

Thanks for your article. It is very unfortunate that over the last
several years, the travel industry has already been able
to to deal with terrorism, SARS, tsunamis, flu virus, swine flu, as well as
the first ever real global tough economy. Through everything the
industry has really proven to be solid, resilient and
also dynamic, getting new strategies to deal with
trouble. There are constantly fresh difficulties and
the opportunity to which the field must just as before adapt and react.

Hey would you mind letting me know which web host you’re utilizing?
I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different browsers and I must say this blog loads
a lot faster then most. Can you suggest a good
internet hosting provider at a honest price?

Thank you, I appreciate it!
