October Musings

What we have been talking about (besides Michael Buble).
Culture Night 2010:
Like most people who ventured out last Friday night we were Very impressed with what was on offer. We were dashing around the city to get everything

Autumn/winter evenings mean more opportunities for stargazing

in and managed to see most of the events. The highlights for us was looking at the night sky through the powerful telescopes at The Blackrock observatory, making little tea pots in the Crawford Art College and soaking up the atmosphere at the Camden Palace Hotel. We hope this will become a two night event in the future as there was still so much we didn’t get to see.

New Ventures:
Gemma has been studying the art of Feng Shui. She plans to re-arrange her house and let the chi flow.
Laura has started to learn to read music and sing and while its very interesting it s also very challenging (especially for her teacher).
Rose is back from maternity leave after having a beautiful baby boy Ryan.

Upcoming events:
Halloween decorations and costumes are all over the shops and we are getting very excited as we are all big fans. We are planning our window and it is going to be extra spooky this year, and watch out for scary surprises around the shop. If Gemma had the chance, she would probably be dressed up as well, but not wanting to frighten customers away, she’ll have to settle for her spider earrings.


Before Halloween arrives, however, there’s the Jazz Weekend (October 24th-26th). Events that have captured our interest are the One O’ Clock Lab Band at the Cork School of Music and Steve Winwood at the Everyman Palace. Both Gemma and Laura are hoping to attend. It’s also a bonus to experience a concert at the School of Music where the acoustics are world-class.
