Meet and Greets are gone! Had to add a секунда number again tonight!

They were adorable and funny. They сказал(-а) that the fall Показать will have two parts. The first part will be ALL Irish music. The секунда part will be IE.

Neil says "you know" alot.

They took Вопросы from the callers...the usual...but then they asked Keith to tell something about Neil that no one knows. He сказал(-а) "He wears розовый underware and paints his toenails red"
Then Neil сказал(-а) that...

Howdy ya'll, i hope that Ты are all behaving per usual and not doing anything that I wouldn't do!!!

I've been kept busy the past few week's doing anything and everything, to stay active. I wrote quite a cool wee tune last night on my 12 string fender, there is a class sound outa it and I'm glad i own it. It's funny sometimes when Ты lift a different гитара and just get a completely different buzz outa it and write a style of song that Ты wouldn't normally, (well thats my excuse for owning all those guitarz!!!)!

The surf Hasn't been all that great since i got Главная which is a pity but i reckon...

"Hello to all,"

"I hope that Ты have all settled into the New год as swimmingly as i have, the surf really wasn't much to talk about from the time i got home, but the New год has had еще than enough tasty swells for myself and my mates to freeze our wee toe's off in!!!"

"Everybody needs a little time away," I heard her say, "from each other."
"Even lover's need a holiday far away from each other."
Hold me now. It's hard for me to say I'm sorry. I just want Ты to stay.

After all that we've been through, I will make it up to you. I promise to.
And after all that's been сказал(-а) and done,
You're just the part of me I can't let go.

Couldn't stand to be kept away just for the день from your body.
Wouldn't wanna be swept away, far away from the one that I love.
Hold me now. It's hard for me to say I'm sorry. I just want Ты to know.
