    Well my next irish dance (riverdance) competition is on Febuary 16th. It's in Orlando so it's close to some of you.

    It's being held at teh Sheraton World Resort. I'll be dancing anywhere's between 8am and 3:30pm. What that means is I'll be doing 7 or eight dances during that time. It's something where you can come a little while and leave whenever you like.

    You'll get to see reall irish dancing. The costumes are BEAUTIFUL, but wxpensive. And later on at night like in the evening the really advanced girls dance. You will go WOW! Honestly. We do a lot of practice.

    So if if anyone is intereested in comeing just say so and I post more info.


    Oh yeah and that is my excuse for having to be late at teh next meeting. I have a dance class that I can't miss. But I'll be at teh meeting.

    lol, Cigam Retah. There is actually a suprising number of scottish dancers. Irish and scottish aren't that completely different.

    Here is a little more info.

    There is a fee to get in. It's only a few dollars.

    Does anyone need really good directions? I'll have to post them later seeing as my mum is still at work.

    Irish and Scots being the same.... oh me poor Grandma Ryan in turning in her tomb....

    I may come down for this. It has been a long time since I have gotten to participate in the cultural heritage of my fathers side.

    Oh I will so have to be there.

    I've got irish on both sides off my family.

    I just thought that I should warn you about the music. You will hear the reel or jig or hornpipe(three well known dances) in your head for days. lol.

    I know all sorts of Irish songs.

    "Dublin in the Green"
    Well I am a jolly plow boy, and I ploy the fields by day.
    Till the sudden thought came to my mind, that I should roam away.
    I have always hated slavery, since the day that I was born.
    So I'm off to join the IRA and I'm off tomorrow morn.

    And we're all off to Dublin in the green in the green; where the helmets glisten in the sun.
    Where the bayonets clash and the rifles flash in the echo of a thompson gun.

    Thats called Grace, the most beautiful song ever written in my oppinion.

    As we gather in the chapel here in Old Kilmainham Jail, I think about these past few days, oh will they say we've failed.
    From our schooldays they have told us we must yearn for liberty, Yet all I want in this dark place is to have you here wlth me.


    Oh Grace just hold me in your arms and let this moment linger, they take me out at dawn and I will die.
    With all my love I place this wedding ring upon your finger.
    There won't be time to share our love for we must say goodbye.


    Now I know it's hard for you my love, to ever understand,the love I bear for these brave men, my love for this dear land.
    But when Padhraic called me to his side down in the GPO, I had to leave my own sick bed, to him I had to go.

    Oh Grace just hold me in your arms and let this moment linger, they take me out at dawn and I will die.
    With all my love I place this wedding ring upon your finger.
    There won't be time to share our love for we must say goodbye.


    Now as the dawn is breaking, my heart is breaking too.
    On this May morn as I walk out my thoughts will be of you.
    And I'll write some words upon the wall so everyone wlll know I love so much
    that I could see his blood upon the rose

    Oh Grace just hold me in your arms and let this moment linger, they take me out at dawn and I will die.
    With all my love I place this wedding ring upon your finger.
    There won't be time to share our love for we must say goodbye.

    Darn you're good at these songs. Are you lts irish little irish or know someone who is irish.

    I was considering singing that at the dance competition since there is a contest for people singing irish songs. But I decided not to given my fear of singing in front of large groups of people and jugdes.

    I'm a pretty good mix of things, but I'd be more Irish then anything else.

    Cool. I can't believe I only have 4 weeks left to practice for the Fies.

    It's quite scary because I'm competing in a pretty high and advanced level.

    Three weeks! That's all I have left to use to practice!

    Man I did a show today and almost fell on stage. It was funny because at the end when they were having all of the different groups come on stage and bow, just me and my wo ther friends were left. Everyone else went home. So we had to get into our dresses and run onstage. In our SOCKS! It was rather funny.
