Discovering Ireland.

UPDATE. 13th June 2013. Was in Galway, Connemara, Achill island, Roscommon, Sligo,  leitrim and Wicklow recently.  The beautiful weather drew us. Now back to Guerilla gardening as the rain helps the flowers and plants to flourish in Swords 'Botanic' gardens.  :-)

Guerilla Gardening 2013.

Wildflowers are fairly easy to grow and many are self propagating which means you can collect the seeds at the end of the flowering season and multiply your collection year by year. Cornflowers, pot marigolds, nasturtiums and poppies etc., make a colourful display in no time at all.

Guerilla gardening enhances your local environment and keeps you fit for free! :-)

Letters From Graceland 1961.

This article appeared in The News of the World, 1997. In the UK and Ireland. 4.5 million copies were sold at that time.
The story continued in The Irish Times and on RTE1 Radio. 
It lead to my wife and I winning a trip to Graceland. An invitation to The International Conference on Elvis Presley at Mississippi University 1999, a weeks stay in Memphis as a guest of an Elvis cousin 2002, Then a statue of Elvis in Tupelo Mississippi 2003, involvement in the 'My Happiness' and Ed Leek story 2010, and sale of 'That's All Right', by Whyte's auctioneers in Dublin recently!

There is a lot more but you would just not believe it!

Film script writers and TV documentary makers would be most welcome.
