The documentary I recently took part in at the basement club is finally here!

hi guys
well here it is, finally. Our documentary that we recently took part in. The first organisation profiled in the documentary is link, an organisation for lesbians, then there is us at the basement club, and then the cork youth health service.
Please enjoy this and any feedback you can give me is appreciated.


for some of my posts you’ll need a password to read them.

If I have given you the password within the last couple of weeks then you don’t need to do anything. It will remain the same.

If you don’t have the password and would like it to be able to read my protected posts then please email me at

Some details I need to keep behind a password, sorry to everyone for the inconvenience.

when I give the password to you you’ll have to enter it once, then I am not sure but I think it doesn’t have to be reentered again in the future.

Don’t count on that though. Keep the password safe when I give it to you.

Those of you who use the reader to read posts, the protected entries don’t show up on the reader so you will need to check my blog website for them.

Or if you’d like I can send a notification to say there is a new protected entry. Let me know if you’d like notification of protected posts.

I was just going to keep the blog completely private but then I decided not to do that because I know a lot of my readers like the blog and to be honest its extra work for me to privatise everything and re add people.

So this is a workable solution for now.

So if you’d like my password and notification of new entries, either email me to let me know or comment here and leave me your email address and I will email you.

To my followers, question time!

so wordpress tells me i have 1 thousand 155 blog followers. Thanks, everyone! I am in awe! Who would have thought my little blog would have so many kind and wonderful followers following it!
Another blog friend asked her followers some questions, so I thought I’d ask mine the same questions.
I’m especially interested in your answers, especially those of you who rarely or never comment! I’d like to get to know all of you and start some conversations!
So please answer these if you dare!

  1. How is your day going so far and what are you excited about doing in the near future?
  2. What is the most favorite aspect about yourself, and why?
  3. What is the biggest challenge you have faced thus far in your life, and how did you overcome it? And if you are still working at it, what’s your game plan?
  4. What is something you are a jack, master, or expert in/of?
  5. What was the subject of the last dream you remember having?
  6. Why is your best friend your best friend?
  7. What do your favorite pajamas look like and why are they your favorite pajamas?
  8. If you had a time machine (think TARDIS) and you can go anywhere in space and time, where would you go and why?
  9. Why is your favorite color your favorite color?
  10. What was the last thing that you laughed at — like hard core belly laugh, spewing soda out your nose, sides hurting, can’t catch your breath?

come on, I’m waiting for you guys to make me smile! ā¤ šŸ™‚

Recipe share. Chocolate truffles

Chocolate Truffles

1/4 cup whipping cream

2 tablespoons Grand Marnier liqueur

6 ounces sweet chocolate, broken up

4 tablespoons sweet butter, softened

Unsweetened cocoa

Boil cream in small heavy pan until reduced to 2 tablespoons. Remove from heat. Stir in liqueur and chocolate. Return to low heat. Stir until chocolate melts. Whisk in softened butter. When mixture is smooth, pour into a shallow bowl. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Scoop chocolate up with a teaspoon. Shape into 1 inch balls. Roll the truffle balls in the unsweetened cocoa. Use a cool working area. Store truffles, covered, in the refrigerator. Let truffles stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.


If you don’t mind using liqueur, there are many types of spirits you can use in this recipe for different flavors. In place of the Grand Marnier, try kahlua, Framboise, or Amaretto liqueurs.

Makes 20 truffles.
