Just looking at my hair, it's got long and scraggy with the sun. So am sick of going to my hairdressers and having to listen to drivel from the hairdresser laugh
Then as she take only a few minutes to cut my hair at is is fine, I have to pay 70euro and a tip.

So, got my Scissors out, [professional one] today, and cut my hair in to a short Bob. It grows quickly.
Oh it feel great in the heat.
It took about 7 minutes using a Mirror for the back, and a hand mirror for the front.

Let's put it this way, I have often come out from the Hairdresser looking worse.

Going out to get myself something nice instead. rose
Anyone else cut their own hair ?

My blog yesterday about apologies....

I wrote a blog yesteday about apologies, it came from my heart, it was about a woman who has been my friend for
60 years, since we were 5 or 6 years old. Friends.
We went separate ways as she married and moved to the Midlands but kept in touch.

I had good jobs and was having a great social life like most 30 , somethings.
When she returned, we took up our great friendship. In some ways, I was her Therapist, her mother
was the bane of her life, she looked after her until she died, and her husband never liked the arrangement
so Caroline would come and cry here, and I would listen and listen.

Recently they came in for money, started going on cruises, holidays, they were already wealthy.
I was delighted for Caroline as she had been a good daughter. Her husband was controllling but I
know when to mind my own business. I was always shown the photos of all the wonderful places they visited and brough around to see their new 140,000 kitchen. I was delighted but thought it slightly insensitive, since I have not got a lot of money.

I never, ever, ask her for a lift anywhere, I never learnt to drive as I always had a man in my life and
rode a bicycle, never seemed to need one.

I had problems booking a Taxi and Caroline offered to take me to the hospital, about 40mins drive, in the early morning. She offered, I would never ask, It was the first time She was driving me anywhere.

A week before the operation I was having , she phoned me, and her husband was in the background.... as he always is. I mentioned the lift, she was cool and said 'I am going to be very very
busy for the next few days, as you know we are going to Spain on the 24th, So I will have to check my Diary'
My blood went cold. I felt sick. The operation was early morning on the 19th. I somehow managed to keep a short conversation going, said goodnight and put down the phone, I was gutted.

The day before the operation, I was nervous, the phone rang at 4pm that afternoon, it was a ginger sounding Caroline, 'Are you ready for the morning '? I was shaking, I said I was nervous.
She said 'I will call for you at 6.45. am.
I kept my voice very low volume and polite I asked if she really expected me to wait until the day before an operation in a hospital far away to get my transport sorted. I said this in a controlled way.
She told me she was a good friend how dare I insinuate,and started to row, [we never had a rown in all the years together. I just said I am not able for t his Caroline, I am
just going to say that you said you were very busy and I never heard from you since, and now you phone me the day before......
She banged the phone down and an hour laterr I got a text to say she hoped my operation went well and my biopsies too. That she never was rude to a living person in her life and that she wished me well and would continue to pray for me.
No contact since.

Two small words that are So healing.

You're hurt ~smarting. How could she/he. You are angry, full of a host of emotions.
somebody has hurt you badly, it could have been on a C.S. blog [just because I am writing it here ]
or something somebody said to you, or called you [without thinking how it would hurt] or perhaps
knowing how much it would hurt.

It could have been a deed of omission, like forgetting a birthday, or forgetting to say thanks for all the
help and advise you gave them, how you stuck up for them, or helped them through a bad time.

Either way, the bad feelings can build, and fester. There can often be misunderstandings too.

The word is simply 'Sorry' or even 'I apologise' and the other healing word is 'Thats ok' or 'You're
forgiven' or even 'this will take time' but the beginning of peace is often 'Sorry'
As Elton John said in his song, 'Sorry seems to be the hardest word'

To say sorry takes courage, it takes humility, and guts, as very often when you say sorry to somebody
your apology is flung back in your face.

However, most people respond well to an apology unless they are the type to harbour grudges for a
life-time .

Think of all the long silences, the nasty words, fights on blogs, that could be over by somebody just
saying, I apologise for hurting you, Sorry, and that would be it,
instead of all this horrible fighting. cheers hug Honey is nicer than Vinegar .

The Cheapest most nutritious Fast food on earth

Nothing exciting about this Blog, Atheists and Christians alike can read without arguing.
Simply, so much money is going on junk food nowadays with disastrous effects.

A boiled egg, brought to work, or a softly boiled Egg if you are at home, is full of nutritional goodness
and with a tiny bit of salt, is nutritious.

The Protein is high quality, it contains B2, Ribofavin, Vit.B12, Folic Acid, Biotin, and Antioxidants that
are good for Eye health.
Iron, and I nearly forgot Selenium which is a great anti oxidant and good for Thyroid.
Iodine .

Cheap, nutritious and fast.
easter egg chicken

Not a cut and past, done from memory, so maybe some vitamins left out.
Your fast food is just full of sugar, Gluten, flavour enhancers, binders, colourants, Sugar, and more
Sugar, ~~ The Cholesterol is NOT bad cholesterol so have no worries there.chicken chicken chicken

I AM PROUD OF MY COUNTRY IRELAND. Why it is no Garbage Can

Peacefully in the spirit of Easter, I just want to say that my Country is a beautiful one.
Despite the weather, North , south, East and West , Ireland is a luscious green, country with a moderate Climate, breathtaking views and an ancient and interesting past.

I won't go in to the past history, but we were scholars and yes at one time Saints in the real meaning of the word. For the size of this tiny Island, we withstood famine with dignity, we withstood being taken over by a neighbouring country, a country who did nothing to help us when they could have.Ethnic cleansing ~ We suffered greatly under that regime, we were not allowed speak our language, practice our religion, or be educated.
We have by and large made up with that country, and have shaken hands, and even asked the Queen of England to a banquet at Dublin Castle . We have negotiatied tirelessly with our oppressors and tried and won a great deal of peace.
Our Culture is extremely
interesting, our Castles, Mythology, Poetry, writers,Artists, are many, considering the size of the tiny Island. Many of our writers /poets are studied all over the world.
Not being a wealthy country, we have still taken in many many immigrants/economic migrants from poorer countries. America is a better country for many of the Irish people who immigrated there during the Famine,and Many American presidents saw fit to visit this tiny island that is Ireland.JFK, etcc.,

So, when somebody calls my Country a 'Garbage Can' or a 'Sh-thole' as they did last night,[on the C.S. blogs ] what type of an Irish person would I be if I did not ask them to retract their statements?

Sadly most of this comes from ignorance of the history of Ireland and Current affairs.
Somebody even put up a list of 'Stats' to try and take from our country but unfortunately stats online are rarely correct and this was not . Either way, There is not an active I.R.A. in Ireland and I would like those who wrote and jumped on the bandwagon with blogs demeaning my country to read a little more about Ireland before insulting the many many Irish people who are on this C.S. Site. If the country is so awful how come the United States sends Google, Yahoo here, where it gets tremendous Tax breaks and where it is a nice place to live. The people of Ireland are by and large intelligent, hard working and talented. We are known for our Agriculture and our produce again, is exported all overover the world.Our hospitality is legend.
Many who wrote Blogs yesterday, showed a great deal of ignorance about my country, Have a Happy and peaceful Easter. Beannachtai na Casca.good luck easter egg

Gingers/Redheads/Strawberry blondes ~ as promised .

Are we a superior Race? miclee and myself think so. Biff? anymore redheads out there on C.S.?
I have done some research and it would seem, we are certainly very different.
My father was Ginger/Red, with Dark Amber Eyes, my Brother has Dark red hair, [no freckles] with amber eyes and skin that gets tanned. I myself have Strawberry [but less of it ] as I grey, Blonde hair with Green
Gingers are usually pale, but can be ruddy, many however [despite rumours to the contrary], do get a tan easily.
Eye Colours ~ Blue eyes with Red hair is very rare. Green eyes with Red/Ginger/Strawberrry blonde is very rare. Hazel and Brown is the most common.

Fewer than 2% of the World population have naturally Red/Ginger/hair.
Fewer than 2% in the United States have Red hair /Ginger hair.
In Ireland 10% have red hair, in Scotland it jumps to 13% of population.
Redhaired [this will cover Ginger, Red, Strawberry blonde] ~ are over represented in Math, Science, Logic,
Philosophy, Comedy.
Socrates, Galileo, Darwin, Mark Twain, Sir Winston Churchill, King Arthur, Elisabeth 1,

Cort Cass Redheaded handbook ~ Habermehl on Redheads~ Stephen Douglas The Redhead Encylopedia ~ Most information dervived from the above.

Why? Well it is thought to be low levels of adrenaline found in redheads. we are more cerebral.

WE SMELL SEXY ~ We excude pleasant pheromones that are sexually desirable , Women, have an erotic, sweet scent.
HEALTH ~ Not surprisingly since we live mostly in Northern Europe, and are fair we are more disposed to Skin Cancer.uh oh

Redheads are naturally more s*xual, so although Blondes have more fun, Redheads have more sex.

BODY CHEMISTRY ~ Our body chemistry sets us apart, We need 19% more anaesthesia than our dark or blonde counterparts, and far less pain killers.
We have a Rare MC1R Gene which hints that we are genetically superiorsnooty

During the Spanish inquistion, Redheads were discriminated against.
ANCIENT EGYPTIONS buried Red Heads alive, as a sacrifice to their god OSIRIS.

BACK TO INTELLIGENCE ~ MC1R is involved in central functioning of Brain, along with some subgroups, MC2R, MC3R, MC3 which is linked to great intelligence.applause

ME ~ Goldengloss People with Strawberry blonde hair and Green eyes, are the RAREST
with 4 people in every 10,000 having this combinationflirty

So that's it. To all the Redheads, Gingers, Strawberry blondes who got to the end of this blog,
We are indeed a race apart. worthy of a Society of our own. Miclee ?

Well I wrote a Blog about a Dog, just a day or two ago. Basically it involved a rescue dog and one of the huge problems was, despite opening the door and leaving his access to the garden, taking him for walks, he pooped /pee d all over my tiny cottage.

So, Today, Sunday, my emails, and When I sign in, I am beseiged with PUPPY TRAINING ADS. a co incidence? nope.
I have bee writing about an Exhibition I am putting up [my Artwork] soon, and low and behold I am getting emails and ads. for Tuition and Framing.

This may seem petty but it goes to show, everything we write, is being watched. It's getting to me.
Am I paranoid?uh oh

Was I cruel or Sensible ?

Today I am feeling low in myself and sad. Briefly [as I can]. My friend of 50 years has been a rampant alcoholic for the past 20 plus years. She acquired a little Pomeranian about 7 years ago. She got it from Dogs Trust. It was a gorgeous little fella, very well trained. House trained, had good manners did not try and eat the food from your plate etc.
My friend being alcholic, did not bother to let the dog out to do it's abolutions. So, the poor dog started going in the Bathroom and on the carpet.

I was furious at the time, but I was trying to speak sense to a drunk woman. I spent a lot of time bringing down food and treats and bringing said dog for walks. It is an hours walk from where I live.
She smokes one ciggie off another and in general is lazy and I often had to bring the dog to the vet with various ailments. She used to depend on me to buy the Worm/Flea medications.

She is now in Hospital with Dementia. In good faith, I took the dog from her brother. Yesterday.
Not a great time when I have 2 more biopsies ahead of me but I decided to go ahead as the dog had been left alone in a house, with dried food and stale water. The thoughts of that made my stomach churn.

He arrived last evening at 4pm. He was distressed and had been indoors with no social company or any type of a walk or run. I took it for a 45min walk through a tiny park and it was like it had never seen a bird or a tree. It really did enjoy itself. My reason was also to relax the dog and tire it out.

I fed the Dog 'Basil' the best of food, it had been living on cheap dried food I also gave it fresh chicken. It scoffed the lot. About an hour later I let it out in the back. It went to the loo and marked a few trees.

Fast forward ~ last night it barked and barked to get in to my bedroom. I relented because it was scratching the door down and slept with it's previous owner. It was infested with fleas, [did not realise] and scratched until the legs bled. It barked at any noise all night, kept at me for affection. this morning, with no sleep, I let the dog out to pee. The dog did so, but while I was having a cup of tea, it cheerfully did a turd on my Duvet cover, wiped it with it's paws in to the duvet. Pee d on my Pillow and the cover [it's a memory foam expensive one ] plus on the carpet it pee d several times, and also did 3 other turds. This morning it kept scratching at my midriff for attention and that's where my operation scar is. It looked at me and pee d again in the livingroom. The Cottage is tiny, and yes, wooden floors are needed in livingroom but not because a dog is using it to pee and poop.

I was totally stressed out. I knew the dog is too old, I feel it has been abused for too long. How many times have I considered calling Dogs Trust to take it back ? Anyway I phoned her brother who cleverly bullied me in to taking it. My gut feelings were telling me no, and my heart felt so sorry for this poor creature. My friend will be in hospital for months. the Duvet, I could not use again, or pillow.
So, Dog has been returned. I felt a sigh of relief but cried. as I felt a failure. I have always been great with animals. I just could not hack this.

Animal lovers will hate me for this but try and remember I am getting over an operation and have other issues going on biopsies etc., and not feeling the best. However had the dog been anyway socialised I would have kept it and given it a good home.

Are people who live in Warm Countries happier?

This Blog is not about God, Religion, not Bitching, pointing the finger or giving out about C.S. Blog land.
I have read that people who live close to the equator, are far less likely to suffer Cancer and certain other auto immune illnesses. I am genuinely wondering, if people think, that living in a warmer country [Spain, Greece, Bahrain, etc., ] are happier, have more energy ?

Dublin [where I live] , was warm and sunny, [ after many days of incessant rain and wind ~I found myself energetic, optimistic, happy, ~ I walked for 2 hours, went and met some friends from schooldays, and no, we were not drinking, but we were all in great form, everybody seemed to be happier, with the blue sky and warmth.

So, does living in a Hot/Warm, Country make for a happier person?daisy

You cannot open a Magazine /Newspaper or even watch some T.V. without being bombarded with articles on Staying young [it is a sin to age ], About Vitamins that you may be lacking in, chemicals in the water,
Mindfulness, ways to ease stress which is useful except that being bombarded with too much articles about being stressed and what it does to the body is in itself Stressful.

Go into a Book Store and the biggest section is the 'Self improvement' part, and many are thumbing the books, some old, but still best sellers, The Road less Travelled Scott peck. Women who love too much,
Eat Fat, Grow thin, How to lose Belly Fat, etc., etc.,

The obsession with our health, and the boom in the Health Food business [which is by and large unregulated] with most of the staff not really understanding how Herbs can contraindicate with occidental
medicines or that pharmaceutical companies use herbs [a large percent] in their medicines, it can be down right dangerous. People just seem neurotic about their health.

So it is the ME generation, write a book about losing weight, getting healtheir , thinner, more confident and you will make money, how to be happy, successful, What does that say about us a people ?

As somebody with Celtic roots in my veins my favourite time of the year is Easter.
It brings to mind how the Christian church, in order to convert non believers to it's way of thinking, had to relent to the many traditions which have their roots in Paganism.

Briefly, let's think about the christian Marriage Ceremony. The red Carpet. That was to stop any evil spirits from entering the va*ina of the bride to be.
Confetti / Grains of Rice ~ Another pagan ritual that was thrown at bride and groom to ensure fertility.
Fertility is very important in ancient religions, pagan and otherwise.

Marriage Ceremonies ~ Judaism still practices the breaking of the Glass which is wrapped in cloth and put on the ground and stomped on by the Husband. This is to inact the breaking of the Hymen and is still done to this day. I was at a Jewish Orthodox wedding recently where this practice still goes on.

Coming to EASTER ~ The Spring Equinox, we have yet another Pagan Festival that was hijacked by Christianity in order to try and convert the Pagans.
The actual time of Easter is governed by the Moon, hence each year it changes. So this is in itself a pagan practice. Eostre means Bunnies.
She was a Goddess with a great following and her symbol was the Rabbit..
Finally the Sacred Cakes that Pagans baked for centuries, despite the early churches determination to stamp out this 'dreadful' tradition. It could not, so it relented and had the cakes blessed,
Today we have the Hot Cross Buns and the great pagan cake 'Simmel cake' ~ delicious.

Again, Easter is my favourite time of year, it is the Spring, it is lambs being born, new spurts of growth means hope and the ground is fertile. Mother Earth.
I have no problems with the ancient symbols of Paganism and Christiantity which together form an ancient symbolism at Easter time.
Have a lovely Easter everyone. [Not cut and pasted, just off the top of my head as usual]daisy
