Smorgasbord Blog Magazine -Weekly Round Up – Josh Groban, Legendary Irises, Lucious Lamb and Shark Diving!

Welcome to the round up of posts you might have missed. Another week of beautiful weather here and apart from taking time out to sit and read in the sunshine…David has been removing the stumps left after the tree felling last summer, so that we can lay a lawn. It will change the whole aspect of the front garden. We then have wall repairs and new fencing and another major job off the list. We have been in the house two years next week and it has certainly been an amazing time. The biggest problem with renovating a property here in Ireland is the weather, especially for the outside work. Hats off to the tradespeople who have to contend with all the time.


Delighted to welcome author D.G. Kaye (Debby Gies) as the latest regular contributor to the blog. I am sure many of you will have enjoyed Debby’s travel archive posts, and like me read and reviewed her book Have Bags Will Travel. Now she will be sharing her expertise with a monthly Travel Column. To get the column off to a flying start (or should I say sailing!)…

Debby will post three articles on cruising the high seas beginning 18th June with parts 2 and 3 going out every fortnight.

As always my thanks to the other contributors who provide wonderful content and bring such variety to the blog.
