Hi folks…today is a wonderful day for spelling.  We decided tomix our high spirits with our LOVE for spelling rules…hope it makes you smile

“if ya can’t have a laugh with the spelling it will surely kill ya…” T

Spelling is where you have rules and where you sometimes break the rules…in this case 922 times.  The English language is where we can break rules and do not end up in court…” G


Wings black cloaks red blood
Ghosts and goblens
Boo !!!! Ha ha ha ha
I have come to suck your blood
Flying through the forest
Graveyards with the rising dead
They pass through this world and on…


Halloween in Ghoulway

Halloween is the feast of all hallows.

it is a celebration of the end of harvest and beginning of winter.

iN Ireland we call it Samhain. many important events in Irish Mythology happen or begin on Samhain. it was the time when cattle were brought down from the pastures and when the livestock were slaughtered for the winter.

in Ireland Samhain is a pagan festival. people would light bonfires to celebrate the new Celtic year. people would walk with the cattle between bonfires and throw the bones of the slaughtered animals on the fire.

Samhain was when the doors to the otherworld opened wide enough for the souls of the dead and other spirits to pass through. that’s why we dress up to scare the pants off the spirits and make sure they go through those doors!

These are a few traditional games that are celebrated at for Halloween for children to have fun. The most well known game and favourite game of all is bobbing for apples. You get a basin of water and let the apples float to the top. THe object of the game is to grab on to the apples and remove it from the water using only your mouth. Hands must be kept behind the persons backs.

Bairin Breac Various things are baked into the loaf, including of course a ring. It is seen as a form of divination for the year ahead. this is a traditional game and the hidden objects signify different things.
Ring marriage
Coin wealth
Rag property
Thimble old maid

snap apples Tie the sting from the ceiling. Make sure to adjust the length once your friends arrive so they are at the mouth height and lower. eAch person must try to eat the entire apple without touching it with your hands. The first person to take the first bite gets a surprise. This game is quite tricky.



Concerning puppy dogs.

Hello my is martina. I live in Galway all my life. I love animals for as long as I can remember. I learnt about animals that you don’t take them in unless you are willing to care for them. I learned the hard way buy taken in ten dogs since the 36years of my life.

They are great campions for me. Licking my face and getting me out of my bed. That was a great alarm clock for me. If you are the kind of person that is lazy that dog is not for you.

I remember a funny story that my dog would jump up for his lead wanting his walk. Then he would let of a brak to get my attention. When I put on his lead he would put the lead in his mouth and he would walk himself. When I would try to grab the lead he would run away from me. i would have to run after him to get him it was a great way to get exercise.

Then you have to feed them. My dog would not like eating his own food because he was giving straps of my food. When I would be eating he would give me sad eyes making me feel guilty. He also would jump up on the table and take anything he could take. It was a great way of losing weight.

THere is also grooming. When my dog see’s the brush he takes one steps back when he see’s the scissors he takes two steps he must think I am a bad hairdresser and when he see’s the nail clipper he is out the door like a mad hatter. You are not giving me a hair cut today.

rembember theses few tips when you look at those puppy dog eyes.

Every story has two sides.

Every picture tells a story. Here are two pictures with two stories.

I see a little girl having fun.She is about five years old. she is smiling and putting her hand out to enjoy the bubbles. she is a little girl not worrying about what is going on around here. The only thing she has to worry about are the bubbles around here.

20120928-121501.jpgThis picture shows a young boy looking for food to eat or iron to sell to buy food.He is standing in rubbish of all sorts of things that could harm his health and well being.Life is not that hard that we put money before life,specially children’s life’s.

What can we do to change one story.

For you with affection

This is a picture of a baby gorilla sleeping on her mothers chest. She has her big massive hand down gentle on her babies head caring for her loved one. When people see a big massive gorilla they would think they are not caring creatures. They would be running away from them.

This is not true. This is a heartwarming picture. Her baby is smiling. The baby is very fragile. The baby is safe in her mothers massive hands.
