Men and Christmas . . . Or Shopping With Dad

Posted on November 10, 2016 at 4:00pm 2 Comments

O.K., it should be obvious (hopefully) that I am not a man.

But dear old dad definitely is... and as, like it or not, I've always been dad's girl I've acquired a bit of an insight into what makes certain types of men…


'Blue Bloods' TV Series: Dinner with the Reagans

Posted on March 3, 2016 at 9:00am 3 Comments

There is a place where fiction overlaps reality and creates a place where half-truths and should-have-beens and never-really-were’s create something that is less than factual and more than fictional -- "Blue Bloods" occupies one such place.…


Like the Frontier, 'Revenant' Is Brutal, Beautiful, Without Romance

Posted on January 21, 2016 at 5:30pm 7 Comments

The West, the American West, is the place in our souls where romance and reality meet head-on. Ironically it is also the place where reality and romance have always met head-on. Ever since “the West” was that ill-defined space on the map west of the White Mountains, west of the…


'Spotlight' The Movie: When Boston's Wall of Silence Crumpled

Posted on December 21, 2015 at 7:00pm 16 Comments

The film "Spotlight" was recently released, based on the true story of the Boston Globe’s investigation of the Boston Archdiocese’s willful coverup of child molestation and abuse. The reviews have been, like the movie itself, scattered.

This is, without a doubt, a shattering film. Well made and well acted, it…

Here's to the Three Birds: An Irish American Holiday Toast

"Here's to the three birds! May you always have a bird on the table, a bird in your glass and an eagle in your pocket."I first heard that toast when I was very young from an elderly neighbor. It was a toast from her childhood in the early 1920s. The toast her mother and uncles always used. Already something of an antique in Jazz Age America. The bird in the glass -- Wild Turkey a.k.a.…See More

The Claddagh Ring Overseas: Legend, Fact & the Rise of an Icon

Today the iconic claddagh ring is, along with the harp and shamrock, one of the most widely recognized and most iconically “Irish” symbols in America. The commercial value of the claddagh ring design is enormous -- and probably impossible to calculate. For owners of Irish stores in the States, the claddagh ring is literally a bread and butter item.  (Several Celtic store owners recently…See More

Sarah , Thanks for that note . Im very interested in this aspect of  the story presently . From Gilmores perspective and from other Irish of the day they saw great parallels between the plight of the Slave and the Irishman . In fact the position of the Irish during penal times had legally been comparable with that of the planters slave in the south . So please any info would be tremendous . My email address is   . By the way happy 2014 and I hope you have had a great Xmas . Regards Jarlath MacNamara

Hi Sarah....Same here.  I have shared this film with my nieces and nephews over the years.  As well as another family favorite, "The War of the Buttons".  I love the folk lore of the "Secret of Roan Inish"'s just magical!  The landscape, the music, it's just charming!!!

RE: Nucci's

Sarah, my husband had a cousin, Anthony Nucci who was a foreign language teacher in South Hampton.  He retired a few years ago and moved to Florida.  He passed away last August.

I don't know of any other Nucci's in my husband's immediate family in LI.
