I checked out the site. I have never heard of Christy Moore. I am in America of course, and unfortunately music from overseas doesn't make it on our radio too often. The closest we get is PBS (Educational Television) and Public Broadcasting radio, which sometimes features music from overseas... they have featured a very nice program with Irish music, and it plays once a week for an hour. I found this a bit of interest (speaking as an American).. his name is Christy and his sister's name is Micheal. Of course I assumed it was a woman.
>In the beginning of this decade I began getting piano lessons from Sister Michael.

Speaking of Irish, we've got Irish roots -- I was the auburn haired kid of six. My Dad probably has been to Ireland with all the years he spent in the Navy -- I would have to ask my mother that question. I feel safe to bet he was. He was stationed all around the world during his service. Most of the time he ever discussed his military experience, he mostly told about his time in the Korean War, on ships, and in Asia. He never really talked about being stationed elsewhere though I am sure he was.

Very nice. BTW, you said you're a student -- that's great. To call that being a "bum" is not. I'm a student. Currently working toward a Bachelors. I'm proud of my progress too. I was on the Dean's List last term. Not a bum!

Welcome Sharon. I'm sure your father would be as proud of you as you are of him. I'm pretty sure he's still looking after you.

This is no joke guys. I visited the Navy.com site, and saw they only allow people to enlist up to age 34. Wouldn't you know! I'm 35. :P I contacted them anyway. They steered me in the direction of Navy Reserves, which claims to accept people until age 38. LOL. The fellow at the Reserves told me if a person can do well enough, they can transfer into the Navy full time.

My niece just wrote me about the holes worn into her feet during boot camp... and other problems she had during Marine boot camp. She said it was worth it for the pride and integrity.

It gives you a tingle all over. And pride. It doesnt compare to what you feel
