Biography

This terrifying (more so because it's happening now) You Tube Animation by Steve Cutts sums up my feelings about what we're doing to our home, Earth, through our arrogance selfishness and stupidity. Tá eagarthóireacht déanta agam, toisc go raibh sé rómhór! NB: please do not assume that because the above is in Irish Gaelic, that I have dodgy political affiliations! I live in the County Palatine of Lancashire (the real Red Rose County). http://www.forl.co.uk/online-resources/lancashire-county-palatine And I grew up in a part of town (not Manchester) that used to be called "Little Ireland".

An amazing triathlete called Alba, Swam biked and ran round the island of Elba, She maintained her locomotion, Through eating a magic potion, A diet of schiaccia briaca. https://www.visittuscany.com/en/recipes/schiaccia-briaca-elba/ And another Limerick-ish one for Alba. In Scotland, they say "Fàilte gu Alba", "Benvenuti ad Alba", in Italia, But it's: "Sut thi deawn, Alba...fancy sum bubbles?", "Nethen, wheer've aw put yon wine on' them truffles?", ...In Edenfield, wheer foalk talk proper! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alba,_Piedmont https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/4/4a/Failte_Scottish.jpg/800px-Failte_Scottish.jpg
