> Hello, dear. Nice to have you back.
Go raibh maith agat! Thank you! I've actually never left; mostly lurk in
the archives, though; delete the mail w/o reading it. I don't know how you
keep up during the school year with the mail. I just scan to see if there's
anything interesting. I just couldn't resist the wild nights in Pitt,
though. I've lost too much sleep over the wild nights in Pitt subject.

And the wild nights moved a little bit north? Children think their parents
don't have any fun.

PHLBT!! It's a beautiful knot. Although it was acquired when she was
totally trashed, and the immediate aftermath was hysterical sobbing about
wanting it OFF (right then), she has received enough compliments while
parading around in her bikini she's decided it stays.
It might surprise those outside of the US, and even those within the US, but
Pittsburgh has a lot of Irish culture for an old city situated on 3 rivers
climbing up the sides of mountains more or less in the midwest (although PA
considers itself "eastern"). Aside from the 3 import shops, there is an
annual Irish fair, a language class is offered at Pitt, and there are
step-dancing classes available. You find these things available in large
urban centers like Boston and San Fran, where huge numbers of Irish stopped,
but it is surprising to find all this in Pitt.
> Happy grading,
I'm finished grading; school ended May 8. I'm working on a grant to put a
course on the web for distance ed fall semester. That's more fun than
That tattooed knot has sort of grown on me. Do you think I'm too old for
one myself? She'd be horrified; love the idea! We could take a vote among
list owners. How old is too old to be tattooed with a Celtic knot? I don't
think I phrased that quite correctly, but I'll leave it alone.
