The Homes Of Donegal
(Sean Mc Bride/ arranged Paul Brady)

I've just dropped in to see 당신 all
I'll only stay awhile
I want to hear how you're getting on
I want to hear 당신 smile
I'm happy to be back again
And greet 당신 big and small
For there's no place on earth just like
The homes of Donegal

I long to see your smiling children
Standing 의해 the door
The kettle boiling on the hearth
As I walk up the floor
And then to see a welcome free
For travellers one and all
For your hearts are like your mountains
In the homes of Donegal

I'd like to stay along with 당신
And while away the night
With fairy...

"Everybody needs a little time away," I heard her say, "from each other."
"Even lover's need a holiday far away from each other."
Hold me now. It's hard for me to say I'm sorry. I just want 당신 to stay.

After all that we've been through, I will make it up to you. I promise to.
And after all that's been said and done,
You're just the part of me I can't let go.

Couldn't stand to be kept away just for the 일 from your body.
Wouldn't wanna be swept away, far away from the one that I love.
Hold me now. It's hard for me to say I'm sorry. I just want 당신 to know.
Hold me now. I really want to tell 당신 I'm sorry. I could never let 당신 go.

Howdy ya'll, i hope that 당신 are all behaving per usual and not doing anything that I wouldn't do!!!

I've been kept busy the past few week's doing anything and everything, to stay active. I wrote quite a cool wee tune last night on my 12 string fender, there is a class sound outa it and I'm glad i own it. It's funny sometimes when 당신 lift a different 기타 and just get a completely different buzz outa it and write a style of song that 당신 wouldn't normally, (well thats my excuse for owning all those guitarz!!!)!

The surf Hasn't been all that great since i got 집 which is a pity but i reckon...

I found a Hobnobs recipe on-line, and after a few changes to the recipe (we don't do grams very well in the US..) I tried it out last night. They're a hit!! Hobnobs are fantastically delicious cookies! The recipe I found states that it's a pretty accurate 'copycat' version of the classic British biscuit. Here's the recipe:

240g self-raising flour (about 2 cups)
240g sugar (1 1/2 cups to 1 1/2 cups)
240g 오트밀 죽, 죽 oats (about 3 cups) -- I used Quaker oatmeal
240g margarine (1 1/4 cup) -- I used 버터 - no margarine in my refrigerator!
1 Tbsp golden syrup (you can order it on-line... I used light...

Song: The Island

They say the skies of Lebanon are burning
Those mighty cedars bleeding in the heat
They're showing pictures on the television
Women and children dying in the street
And we're still at it in our own place
Still trying to reach the future through the past
Still trying to carve tomorrow from a tombstone

But hey, don't listen to me
This wasn't meant to be no sad song
We've heard too much of that before
Right now I only want to be with you
Till the mornin' dew comes fallin'

And I want to take 당신 to the island
Trace your footprints in the sand
And in the evening when the sun...
