Ceol / Music

I found Kathleen MacInnes while surfing around YouTube. Music with a Gaelic bent is a favorite of mine...and Kathleen is wonderful! She and many other amazing singers and musicians can be found on YouTube if you search for the BBC Highland Sessions. Take a listen. The first link is Kathleen MacInnes singing "Jimmy Mo Mhile Stor"
The second link is Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh singing "Slan le Maigh" (catch the pronunciation of her name in the beginning - Gaelic must be HARD!)

Wintery goodness. OK, this does not show how much snow we actually had. I was lazy with my picture taking and didn't get out and get those great icy shots that I normally would. The last snow storm we had...ok, it was ice...I went out to take pics, slipped, and went face first on my camera and broke it. ANYWAY - here is our house with some snow.
