Halloween

Visible to anyone in the world

Just back from watching the fireworks and now settling in with a glass of wine and Bram Stoker's Dracula and it got me thinking... was Bram trying to tell us something about people who give themselves titles and live in castles? 

That maybe they're blood-sucking parasites who feed off the life blood of the ordinary people???

Something to think about?

Party time

Visible to anyone in the world

A very busy weekend,  I was at a friends surprise birthday party on Halloween night before we all headed to Voodoo in Letterkenny for the revelry, which is a sort of open mike night.  Some of our friends were doing the Rocky Horror Picture Show, which was brilliant, and a great night was had by all!  Halloween is a big night here, it originates from the Celtic tradition, where it was believed the spirits of the dead came back on this night to revisit all their old 'haunts' although i think we have more to fear from the living when full of spirits than the spirits of those we loved and lost.

Then on Saturday i had another party to attend but this one was the EGM of the Green Party, in Bangor.  I finally decided a few weeks ago to get involved in politics instead of just sounding off on the blog, so I joined the Green Party which was the only party I could join in good conscience.  So, i am now officially the only Green Party member in town, for now i might add!  I'll be doing my best to recruit new members and the party in enjoying a surge in membership at the moment, let's hope it continues.
