She told him where to go, so he did.

“Mrs. Robert McConnell and son Robert Jr. peer into strange 14 foot cave-in in backyard of their home at 216 N. Lincoln St., Burbank. Authorities say they can’t figure out cause.” (June 20, 1960)

My guess is that it was a collapsed masonry cistern.

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.
