Keep this  informative , most interesting slot  on the first Sat of each month going boys . I along with many friends of mine look forward to it.  Slán . Agnes

Good evening Joe & Dominic. I just realised that today is the last Wed in August.  Maybe like Cinderella , I will lose my slipper , but sure “God loves a Trier”. This is a picture of my life , past & present . Hydrangeas in our garden at Kells bay with the chimney from my Lynch ancestral home  in the background.  Memories indeed. Agnes

Submitted on behalf of my sister Sheila Kelly;From Mary Kelly. When I was  young there was a curved china cabinet in one of rooms where the 'good things' were kept.   some of these were decorations only whereas others were only taken out for Christmas.  One of my favourites was a cream coloured ceramic honeypot with a  bee on top as a handle/knob..  I was fascinated by it and would go into the room any chance I got to look at it.    It developed into an interest in bees and honey in general.

I never got to keep that pot for myself as it vanished during some house renovations so I had to search for  my own when i got older

I found a vintage broken one and fixed it using the process of kintsuge which is the Japanese art of repairing broken item with liquid or silver to enhance the cracks  which sees beauty in the incomplete and  value in simplicity. (p[hoto 2)

When my house burned down a few months ago they were damaged and the honey pourer and metal lid are some of the few items that could be rescued from the debris. My life has changed completely but I still have my treasured memories of the things I fancy

In kintsugi the choice to highlight the breaks with precious metals not only acknowledges them, but also pays tribute to the vessel that has been torn apart by the mutability of life. The previously broken object is considered more beautiful for its imperfections. In life, too, even greater brilliance can be found after the mending.”

As i recover from my stressful Summer both in body and in spirit,  i plan to embrace the tenets of of this in all future endeavours

Hi Joe and Domnick, Love the show.. My picture for this month is. A Ray of Sunshine. Thanks, Nora Nelligan.

Hello Joe and Domnick, I was delighted to manage a trip to Skellig in mid-July with my two friends. We were lucky to get a dry day with a calm sea though the skies were dull and grey. On our way down from the top there was a lot¬¬¬ of puffins to be seen but difficult to photograph. Eventually, I managed to get a shot of these three on a ledge. I love the bright red and yellow of their summer beaks and their orange webbed feet and legs. These colours are very striking with the puffins’ black uppers and white lowers. I can’t wait to go back again. Name of photo: Skellig Trio 2022. Margaret O’Shea
