Rémy Métailler takes a leisurely bike ride downhill through Taxco, Mexico, January 2013 [via].

28 minutes and one second of the Late Pecker Dunne.

Allman Brothers at the Fillmore East, 1970. Jam city.

That should keep your mojo going for a while.

Exactly Four Are Not Irish

The four in front are not Irish, but the back three are. Just sayin’.
I bet the Erins go Bleaugh within the hour.

On the other hand, this is pretty cool.

There are a few remaining holed stones in Ireland. There is one in Co. Antrim and in Co. Louth and lucky for me there’s one in my native Co. Cork! This is the Ballyroon standing stone which is situated in West Cork on the Sheep’s Head road. This imposing stone is 2.25 metres in height unfortunately it is not standing and is only propped up on a smaller stone. The most striking feature is the beautifully carved round hole which runs through the stone. According to a local historian

The hole in the stone  is narrow on  one side and wide on the other. The man had a bigger hand and he put his hand  through the wide side and the woman put her hand through the narrow side. They made their promises when they put their  hands through the stone.

My favorite Irish song is Nell Flaherty’s Drake for various reasons. Here’s the tune:

Stay safe driving home tomorrow so you can still wake up on Wednesday and call in to work stupid.

Snakes On A Hot Tin Roof

Sunday, 15 March 2015 by

I was informed about a cool site called “MapCrunch” that takes you to a random Google Maps Street View Image with a single click ‘o the mouse, so I took it for a quick spin.

I ended up traveling North on the Bumthang-Ura Highway in Bhutan and decided to see what was around the corner. (Click on any image below for detail.)

Bumthang - Ura Hwy 1

Bumthang - Ura Hwy 2

Bumthang - Ura Hwy 3

Bumthang - Ura Hwy 4

Bumthang - Ura Hwy 4a

Looks pretty, clean and quiet, paved road, dogs, no graffiti and snakes on the roof. Yeah, I could live there, and what could be better than living in the sticks and having a King named Jigme Wangchuck?

Yep. There they are.

Saturday Matinee – Hayes Carll, John Prine & Steve Goodman

Saturday, 14 March 2015 by

Hayes Carll sounds a lot like what’s his name.

Oh yeah. The great John Prine, who doffed his hat to the late Steve Goodman.

Talk backwards, and have a great weekend, folks.
