Welcome to my blog.
Here's what we've got on the menu today:

Lorin Thwaits A geek says what?

Got out to Ireland safe and sound, in preparation to teach a Vista class next week.  It's so beautiful out here.  I'm in Doolin, which is a lovely little town by the sea.  Been awhile since I bored everyone with a travellogue, so I thought I would share a few photos of the scenery:

 
View of the ocean from the hostel where I'm staying


Lots of cows out here!


Here's the hostel.


This is the bus driver who took me from Ennis to Doolin.  He really got a kick out of my electric scooter!


Here's the only garage in town, where I aired up the scooter tires.  (Didn't want to fly with them inflated since they could pop depending on how the baggage compartment is pressurized.)


A group of 20 children went to a field to play stick-ball


More Irish children, happy to go and play


Lots of old buildings around, like this


Many only have one or two walls left. This is hundreds of years old.

Loving the scenery.  Time now for me to go grab a bite to eat.

your description of "stick-ball" made me smile, but as an Irishman I feel obliged to let you know that it's actually known as Hurley (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurling), with the stick you see known as a Hurl. It's the oldest game in Europe and the fastest field game in the world.

FYI, "Stick Ball" is actually called Hurling. Hope you enjoyed your stay

Different people can speak much about your very good fact. To my mind, the great get ringtones service must consult with you to perform the best range voice ringtones blog issue.
