    "Smiddicks."

    I love the inscription, but you knew I would! :D :D Beautiful fire! Don't you just love stone fireplaces?

    YES!! That's how he said it!! I told him I thought some of Long Island Sound had leaked into his brain

    I knew you would! I did.

    I do love stone fireworks, that's one of the top things on our list for improvements around our new home...replace the bricks on our fireplace with fieldstone....I love the way it looks...

    One of the many things I love about Ireland are the many fieldstone walls/fences that adorn the land.

    Smiddicks is good, by the way. So is Bass. And Boddington's. :D :D

    Ooooo, doesn't that look cosy and romantic? :D

    And of course it would've reminded me of Tink straight away too...strange how anything traditionally Irish reminds me of a lady across the pond in Orlando

    I had to look up what you meant by fieldstone...it's the smaller uneven stones round the fireplace rather that the stone the lintel is made of, right?

    Guinness should be up there with Marmite. Tis nasty stuff. Come to think of it l dislike most commonly known irish foods. Soda bread, Guinness , Black and white pudding. .........................oh l do like potatoes and cabbage and irish toffee.
    Sorry Tink
    I also have the irish ability to drink far to much and not suffer a hangover. Which in sincere truth is not a good thing as l always remember what i did do the night before.

    Well now Siobhan, we've all our own tastes, right? :D I must say, I can't agree with you on the Guinness, or the black pudding. :D I've even had a couple of versions of soda bread that I liked. :D

    Herself has that very same ability! I missed that gene... :(

    Yes Deb, fieldstone is the decorative front of the fireplace. It used to come from the fields (cleared by farmers so they could plow) hence the name. There is river rock and river stones too. Different sizes...

    We do love our Irish! :D

    We have a small stone (slate actually, thin and rectangular) with this inscription hanging in the entry of our front door.
