The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 46,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 17 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Glendalough Guided Walks
Beautiful Autumn scene at Glendalough on a tour with a lovely group of Australian ladies. The big red thing in the front of the picture is me, getting in the way of the lovely Autumn tree !
This is the entrance door to The Round Tower at Glendalough – but you won’t
be getting in easily, or at all ! The door is about seventeen feet above the ground ! !
And the Round Tower is a listed and protected National Heritage Building –
No Entry at all at all at all !

Greetings to you Martin,
Thank you for the information–it is very kind of you to take the time to send it to us.
Your walk was lovely and we all enjoyed it very much. There is so much history to learn and our old brains are so full it is sometimes very difficult to stuff in anything else! Being told the myths and legends and stories, standing on the same ground, gazing upon the physical ruins and remnants of a previous world, brings it to life in a way that reading a book or pamphlet could never do. It was a thoroughly enjoyable few hours and we will gladly recommend your services to anyone traveling your way.
Picture is of me as one of St. Kevin’s monks for a special walk to celebrate Heritage Week.
I don’t usually dress up ! ! Martin
Thank you Alman 1958 for a really nice review – glad you enjoyed your

A Letter From Glendalough
I’m walking along the Green Road in Glendalough, when I realize I’m thinking about eyelashes! Eyelashes on babies and infants – and women’s reactions to them. I remember bits of conversations where women I know have reacted to the baby infants of friends, commenting on their beautiful eyelashes. “You’ve no business having such beautiful eyelashes” I remember being said in reaction to a beautiful infant.
What is it about eyelashes that produce this reaction in women? What is this deep rooted primal response?
As a mere man I don’t understand. Perhaps it’s similar to a baby bird fluttering its wings to trigger a feeding response in a mother bird.
Some people would say I should be praying as I walk in the tranquil mystical setting of Glendalough.
In a way, this is what I am doing in remembering this.
