This one is a hard one because although I’m in the midst of a happy thoughts marathon, I’m feeling sad about something. So I will just leave it with a couple of happy sports things that happened today (for me) (and for these athletes). First, I finally managed to catch a pre-season baseball game and even Mariano’s first outing of the season. And the Yankees won! Although it means nothing, woot! More meaningfully, David Nalbandian won his second round match today at Indian Wells, where the Deases are, and in usual Nalbifashion, that is, in all tiebreaks. But hey, the result is what counts, or so they tell me. That makes me feel wistful about deciding to go to the UK rather than the Sony Ericsson Tournament in Miami, since he will be there, too. But due to laws of space, time, and money, I can only choose one place to vacation.

Speaking of, I’ve sort of decided on Northern Ireland and must get cracking on hotels since it is (gulp) now a bit over a week away. If you feel like planning my vacation for me, please apply in the comments section.

No song today, I’m Derry sorry. Ha, better jokes to come, I hope.

I have seen some good deals on Hautelook, ideeli, etc, but assumed you already had things planned. I will look again and send you what I find.

It IS great to see [or hear, in my case] the Spring training games. Only 3 weeks and 2 days til Opening Day!
I’ve only been to the town of Beleek in N.Ireland, and didn’t stay there.We stayed in Donegal. The northern countryside is not as pretty as the south [rockier], though it’s my ancestral home, County Down. This isn’t your usual type music, but hear ya go, from “Star of the County Down”]
“I’d a heart to let and no tenant yet
Did I meet with in shawl or gown
But in she went and I asked no rent
From the star of the County Down.”
You can hear Van Morrison with the Chieftains doing it on youtube.

Wait, Mo, aren’t those clothing sites?

Elena, I may visit Van Morrison’s birthplace if I get a chance. Thank you for the lyric! And it’s exciting to hear about your ancestral roots. I hear they have great porcelain in Beleek but I won’t get there, unfortunately.

Also, I adore rocky country so that is all OK.
