Monday cheerlinking

It's a beautiful Monday here in Dublin. Some links worth cheering:


Naomi introduces who she is with some fantastic photos. I'm somewhat in awe at her talent.

CONGRATULATIONS:

A very dear friend got great news on Friday after being worried for weeks. I can only imagine the relief. Still, I imagine she found ways to celebrate over the weekend }:o)

Happy 30th birthday to Poetry Ireland.

A (belated) happy 5 year anniversary to John and Paula. Lovely post and portrait photo here.

Also congrats to Rick who has a new nephew.

And also new (to blogging at least) is Whoopsadaisy, found with other blogging newcomers over at The Blog Pound. Found that remote yet?

I do not like Travor's new mouse. Still, he's got some quality photos up, including a great reason to have kids. Erm.

Good luck tonight AJ! I won't be around to see the Apprentice but I look forward to reading what's gone on.

Also good luck to the charmingly named PheasantFukker, who has put together a challenging list of 40 things to do before he turns 40.

My laugh out loud post of the day so far has been Nelly's cross words about Castro.

I also laughed at Susan's address:

#1 Myarse Street
Wee Village
County Cavan
FE1 CK2
Republic of Ireland
She's looking for "good read-aloud books for a special-needs 9-year-old boy in love with cars, trains, horses..." so if you can help, please leave her a comment.

A wee chuckle at the memories. Tommy - 14 - finds out the age old lesson of black shoes for cutting grass

I'm liking the adventures of a daisy from Lucy. "It is a long way from the train tracks of Ballybrophy, from where she was plucked."

Ever wonder what President of Ireland Mary McAleese gets up to daily? Here's an example of a typical day. Gosh, we must have a lot of High court judges...

Brilliant resource for marketers and students - a list of the top 250 PR, Media, Marketing and Advertising blog posts from a lot of sources. Top class thinking from the professionals.

I'm meeting Green Ink and Katie and Ailbhe for the first time on Wednesday, as we join a group of other bloggers at Scoopy scoopy dog dog. Or someone like that. I'm looking forward to it!

London is a beautiful city by night. Check out some of these amazing pictures.

Finally, Top Gear is coming to Dublin and you can win tickets over on Today FM's website. There's also some details over on RDSTickets.com

  7. @Whoopsadaisy - most welcome! I'm liking what you're doing.

    @Raptureponies - I'll remind you, only if you remind me of "lamp" - enough said ;)

    @Green Ink - good man.

    @Le Craic - no bother, on my way to check out your writing now!

    @Donna_m - ah thanks. I hope they are cheery - Always difficult to know. However, this time thankfully the problem wasn't finding them, it was choosing which to use - I could have had more! I may make it twice weekly.

    @katie-liglia - hello there. Nice to pre-meet you. There's no promises about biting. Depends on how the evening goes ;o)

    @Nay - they're not paved with gold though. Nor potatoes, barley nor wheat. The bastids only used that advertising to get me over there.

  11. I like the London photos but they depress me a little. There's me feeling guilty if I leave lights on in my little house. I look at those carbon sinks and I feel a little like, what's the point?

  12. Thank you for your good wishes in my 40 for 40. The list is complete and will some day be published. If anyone has Angelina Jolies number I would like to add her as No. 41.
