    I just want to get there! Thanks so much, it actually sounds like the small town in Pennsylvania that my Dad grew up in. No kidding everyone no matter the nationality spoke with an Irish accent! Small grocery stores ( lots of bars!! corner ones of course) And everyone knew everyone!

    Tink, when was the last time you were there?

    2002 was a long time ago.

    I never expected it to be this long between return visits. Who knew the economy would get in the way?

    Yes. I do remind myself of that. It's a nice place to be for the most part, but it ain't Ireland! :wink:
