“I think there's nothing better than laughing in life, so that's nice, to be thought of as someone who can make someone laugh. It's 'cause I think life is hard. You know, my dad was a really silly man. A great Irish silly man. And that's fine.

BONUS CARIBBEAN BLUE CROCHET PATTERN: - Anne Potter's Tobago Belt - "A wonderfully cool accessory, this uber-hip belt gives crochet a new swagger. A bright Caribbean blue yarn and traditional square motifs get along perfectly in this fashion-brilliant belt. I love how the classic Granny square has such attitude seen on this bandolier-inspired hip belt – so cool! While you could make this belt using any small square motif, I’m including directions for the classic double crochet motif shown. This belt is a great on-the-go project thanks to the motif’s small size and simple pattern. Scour thrift shops (or and ebay) for the perfect vintage belt buckle or grab a new one in the notions department of the fabric store. Who knew crochet could be so hip?"

BONUS BLUE FISH RECIPE: - Super Summer Grilled Bluefish - "Have a ton of bluefish and don't know what to do with it? Give this a try! Bluefish has a reputation for being a very strong fish. This super citrus marinade gives this grilled fish a bright and delicious flavor. I just made some (which I caught and froze) and it came out superb."

From - 08/04/16:

My mother-in-law sent me two sweaters for Christmas.

When she came for a visit, I put on one of the sweaters.

The first thing she said was, "What's the matter? Didn't you like the other one?"

Caribbean Blue

Enya, 1991
(b. 17 May 1961)

...Afer Ventus... the world goes round and round
With all you ever knew --
They say the sky high above
Is Caribbean blue...

...if every man says all he can,
If every man is true,
Do I believe the sky above
Is Caribbean blue...


...if all you told was turned to gold
If all you dreamed was new,
Imagine sky high above
In Caribbean blue...

Afer Ventus...
