Scott those are beautiful! You should do a calendar with them. That would mean ten more though. Hint, hint  ::)


Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: celtic_fiddler on January 30, 2008, 05:41:09 PM
That's a great idea, Mosca.  Those two look like May and December to me.  I'd love to see Scott make us a whole calendar.  ;D

Well Scott (which one  ??? ??? ???, man there are a lot of us) there ya go, how about it? We couldn't sell them because of the image but it would be nice perhaps as a gift to Mairead.


Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: Scott on January 31, 2008, 01:20:02 PM

A Mairead calendar is a great idea!  I never thought of it, but those do look like May and December :D






Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: Moscapoet on January 31, 2008, 03:38:53 PM
We'll all be holding our collective breaths for what you come up with. Each month one of her airs and her in a scene appropriate for the month. You could then perhaps submit it to CW and maybe they'd do it up for them to sell. With her permission of course. you never know ,their promotions folks and hers might like it. The two you have done and very classy. Calendars would go over so well!


Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: Scott on February 04, 2008, 01:35:58 PM
Here's another one... I think of this as April, as in "April Showers Bring May Flowers"...

Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: Moscapoet on February 04, 2008, 05:11:07 PM
Gorgeous! Perfect. Remember too that April is her birth month if that alters anything. Keep what is there though! You are slowly creating a masterpiece of a calendar. Hmmm, wonder what a 365 day calendar would be like? Never mind, now I'm just getting greedy  ::). Thanks for that latest creation.


Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: Scott on February 08, 2008, 04:35:40 PM
Here is another:  :)

(http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k100/st00a/Wallpaper-MaireadClouds-01.jpg)

If you like, you can start making suggestions about which month each one pertains to, although at the end, after all 12 are made, we can configure them into a logical progression... if one day I make what seems like a good one for a certain month, later I might introduce one that would be PERFECT one for that very same month.  So please, tell me what months you think each should be, but lets not set it in stone yet.

Incidentally, if anyone wants the links to the actual wallpapers so as to download them (not just to see the reduced-size pics), I can give you the links to my photobucket if you like.  :)



Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: Moscapoet on February 08, 2008, 05:11:40 PM
Well, dancing in the clouds. That is uplifting!  :D. You may want to add "suite" at the end of the title. With "Captain H" you might try one on a dock or on a fishing boat at sea. "Skidoo" could be a summer scene with her skipping down a country road. Just a couple for you to play with. Keep it going, I love it! Plenty of time to get a 2009 calendar ready to submit to her and/or the CW folks.


Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: celtic_fiddler on February 08, 2008, 05:21:04 PM
For some reason, that makes me think of June.  Lovely work!!   :)

Post by: Fiddle_Addict on February 09, 2008, 11:52:29 AM
Oh, could you maybe do a slightly melancholic one for "There is no Night"?
I already told I really like this one, didn't I? ;)


Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: MeganDelia on February 09, 2008, 01:07:41 PM
The Within the Blue one makes me think of August or September. Its very pretty.


Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: Scott on February 09, 2008, 01:17:26 PM

Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: celtic_fiddler on February 09, 2008, 02:15:23 PM
I like that one!!  ;D ;D   It reminds me of folks hiding in the corn field on Hee-Haw!  :D

So that could be sweet summer corn or fall harvest corn as far as the calendar goes.  That's a very clever design.  Great work!!

Now I'm off to play "Turkey in the Straw".   :D

LOL!!!!!!! ;D ;D ;D ;D  That was great!! :D  That sparked a memory from more than 30 years ago (shows how old I am... ;) )




Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: Scott on February 09, 2008, 03:20:36 PM
And here is still another one!!


(http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k100/st00a/Wallpaper-Boatdock-01.jpg)


And yes Ariane, I will be making a "There Is No Night" one, you can be sure it will be special :)    And I will also make a sea-motif one for "Captain H" when the time comes also.  I may end up with more than 12 when I am done, then we can just take the 12 that best fit together for the months.




Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: celtic_fiddler on February 09, 2008, 03:33:43 PM
That's very pretty.  You know, I've never played violin while on a boat.  I can't imagine it would be easy on a small boat with all the rocking and swaying.  I guess if I was seated it would be ok.  But I'm not sure about the "spray" landing on my instrument........

Makes me think of those lobster fishermen up in Maine.  What month do they do the most lobster catching up there?  ;D


Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: Fiddle_Addict on February 09, 2008, 04:11:31 PM
Ah, very pretty :)
It reminds me of autumn, somehow, maybe because of the fog? :D


Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: Moscapoet on February 09, 2008, 07:58:39 PM
I like the contradiction one which is definitely a summer one. Hee Haw? Maybe it should be the Corntradiction  :D. If you know Hee Haw then you'll remember the song that went "Where oh where are you tonight? Why did you leave me here all alone? I searched the world over and I thought I found true love, you met another and pfffhhhhttt  :P, you was gone." Anyway, on the other piece, if you know what the song means it might be more appropriate to have her set amongst some stones in the mist. The one you did is lovely and perhaps you could use it for "Captain H". Defintietly an autumn month on the an raibh tu ag an gcarraig air though. Thanks you. 


Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: Scott on February 10, 2008, 10:03:09 PM

When I first heard "An Raibh Tu Ag An GCarraig", the sound at the very beginning of the song makes me think of a boat pulling against it's moorings.  That is why I put Mairead on the boat for that one.  ;)   I can easily switch the song to "Captain H" later, if need be... although you haven't seen what I'm thinking of for "Captain H" yet!! :D

Anyway, here's yet another:



(http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k100/st00a/Wallpaper-Maireadplaid-01.jpg)


If Mairead ever sees all these, she'll probably say "When did I pose for THESE??"  :D






Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: celtic_fiddler on February 10, 2008, 10:12:57 PM
That's cute.  There's a wildlife park near me that has a spot similar to that one.  So it kind of reminds me of home.  :)  Not sure what month that would be, but it does look kind of cloudy and the trees are  green.  Maybe March?  Looks like there might be a chill in the air, but not exactly cold.  :)


Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: Fiddle_Addict on February 11, 2008, 09:41:38 AM
Sweet :)

Maybe March?  Looks like there might be a chill in the air, but not exactly cold.  :)

I was thinking of April, but maybe it could also be very early on a summer morning. What a lovely thought, getting up really early to play your violin in such a beautiful spot when the sun is rising. :D

Wonderful Scott! Definitely a spring month. I love how you put her in plaid. I can easily see her fiddling in the park on a spring day. Really great stuff!

Post by: Scott on February 13, 2008, 11:55:45 AM
Here's another one, a bit different, I don't know if it will fit into the calendar:

It is quite hard to pick a month for this one.

Post by: Celtic Fiddle Chick on February 13, 2008, 04:55:37 PM
WOW! These wallpapers are ALL amazing.  There is not a single one that I do not like. 

I think it would be cool to go cruzing on a boat and play.

I hope to some day play on the shores of Lake Superior in Duluth.  Down right by the waters edge with the waves crasing on the shore.

Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: Moscapoet on February 17, 2008, 04:51:27 PM
I'm speechless. Well, not really  ::). Those are all absolutely gorgeous! The one in the autumn woods is such a lovely scene. That brings back some very fond memories and I wrote some poems that would fit that scene perfectly. Looks like October. The next one is stunning! Perhaps late summer or early fall say August or September. Finally, the Captain H one is wonderfully casual and fun. A great one for say June. You are creating a masterpiece Scott. I can't wait to see it all and then have it put together. If that calender doesn't generate some interest by CW and/or Mairead for a great potential sales product I don't know what will. Simply beautiful work with an equally beautiful subject. Sigh.  ::)


Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: Celtic Fiddle Chick on February 17, 2008, 05:04:42 PM
Some more amazing work. A good job well done.


Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: Scott on February 19, 2008, 12:24:39 AM
Another one.  If nothing else, we can say that Mairead chooses some beautiful places to play her fiddle!  :)


(http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k100/st00a/Wallpaper-FiniansIsle-01.jpg)


By my count we are at 12 wallpapers now, but I will make up several extra so that we have some real choices.  Besides, I want a true Christmas one in the mix! :)




Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: celtic_fiddler on February 19, 2008, 09:07:34 AM
I like that one.  Has a very mysterious air about it.  :)


Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: Fiddle_Addict on February 19, 2008, 12:33:07 PM
It is lovely.  :) She would have to play rather loudly, wouldn't she, if she doesn't want her fiddle to be drowned out by the waterfalls? I have no idea, I never played my violin that close to a waterfall (yet). Unfortunately, though, as I love waterfalls.

Yeah, I hadn't thought that it might be hard to hear, being so close to the waterfall.  When I selected the picture, there was of course no noise coming from the picture itself so it didn't occur to me.  Hopefully Mairead and anyone who would hear her there has some really good ears.  :)




Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: celtic_fiddler on February 19, 2008, 01:52:37 PM
Mairead would definitely be able to hear it with the violin so close to her ear.  She would also hear the waterfall and the mixing of the two might make for quite a lovely sound.  I doubt any audience would be able to hear it, but Mairead would be listening to a symphony.  ;)

Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: Moscapoet on February 19, 2008, 05:33:34 PM
Wow, that is another beauty! The silhouette and the scenery are really reflective I think of her being a part of God's creation yet not overwhelmed or overwhelming it. Yes, by all means do more of them so that each piece from her solo CD and the pieces with CW are represented. Enough for two calendars?!! Lovely work as always Scott. Thank you.


Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers

Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: Moscapoet on February 21, 2008, 12:13:37 PM
Awwww, I want one of those on my Christmas tree.  Very nicely done. Time to start thinking about how to match photos to a calendar and do a test proof copy. I'll look over the ones so far and see what ones to go on what month. Caveman that I am, I don't know but imagine there is some sort of computer program to make a calendar. Keep up the good work Scott. Do you have Mairead's CD with all the track titles? Tri fhidili/Smash the windows/Prestons with her, her mum and sister pictured would be nice. She does a "Last rose of summer" solo on the ANJ tour. You have a great talent, thank you for sharing it.     


Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: Scott on February 21, 2008, 01:25:59 PM
Thanks for reminding me about the "Last Rose of Summer" segment that she does! I had forgotten about that!

Yes I have her solo CD.  What do you think I was listening to while making these, to get inspiration?  ;)

There is a complication about the calendar, that I realized only after making this most recent wallpaper....



Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: Fiddle_Addict on February 21, 2008, 02:54:56 PM
Wow, these are great :D


Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: Moscapoet on February 21, 2008, 04:26:51 PM
Yes Scott, what complication would that be? If there seems to be duplication of certain months that's OK because I hope we have another year coming after the next one  ;D. She has enough tunes to do another calendar. There is still Skidoo, Shenandoah, The Pacific slope, and some where she has prominent fiddle parts when the ladies sing as in "The voice", and a few others. No worries on duplication. As for the first twelve, here is what I'm thinking: Jan.-In the bleak midwinter, Feb.- An raibh tu ag an gcarraig, Mar.-There is no night, Apr.-Raining up, May- Bovaglies plaid, Jun.-The butterfly, Jul.-Captain H Aug.-The contradiction, Sep.-Finan's isle, Oct.-My Lagan love, Nov.-The setting sun,  Dec.-Ding dong merrily on high.  The other two can be set for the next calendar along with ten more. What do you think?


Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: celtic_fiddler on February 21, 2008, 05:05:30 PM
That last one is very pretty too.  :)


Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: Starman on February 21, 2008, 05:45:03 PM
    These are wonderful, Scott!  I don't know how you could show to Mairead more how much you think of her than through the time and effort that went into creating these!  I would think she would be quite touched by them.  :)


Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: Scott on February 21, 2008, 11:35:32 PM

My concern is that alot of these backgrounds are ones I found online through searches, some from months ago.... and some conceivably have copyrights on them.  So a calendar offered for sale could present a problem for potential copyright violation.  I'm not worried about the images that I got from the CW DVDs, if Mairead was in favor of the calendar then I'm sure that part could be worked out... it's the other parts of the images that concern me.

Now, that's not an issue at all if it's a calendar that we make up to be given away, not sold.  Perhaps another idea would be to make some up, and offer them as prizes for Forum contests. :)   And of course we could maybe arrange to have one sent to Mairead too.  :)   What do you all think?


Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: celtic_fiddler on February 21, 2008, 11:39:53 PM
Sounds like a very nice prize for someone to win!  I'm sure that a Kinko's could put a calendar together with your images.  :)  And as long as you're offering it freely, I wouldn't think there would be any copyright issues at all.   ;)

You've done some fantastic work and I'm looking forward to your future creations.  ;D


Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: Scott on February 22, 2008, 12:23:41 AM

And I'm not done with making Mairead wallpapers.  But most of the ones now will not necessarily be themed to the seasons, although they might happen to be appropriate for a particular month.

And, I like that arrangement for the wallpapers for the months!  I think we should go with that arrangement, unless I come up with a brainstorm of a wallpaper in the next few days.  :)




Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: Moscapoet on February 22, 2008, 10:02:22 AM
I agree with the issue of copywrite which is why I stated early on about sending a proof copy to CW for their and her approval. Rich has already discovered with his coffee mugs that they could not be sold. It would be up to CW and their publicity/merchandising arm as well as Mairead as to whether this lovely project would be adopted for sale. I love the idea of gifts in a forum contest which is what I want to do with some of the Maireadium bumper stickers, again pending approval. I would like sales of those stickers and a calendar to cover costs and then proceeds over and above that to go to a charity of Mairead's choice. This site, projects that come from it, and even my writings aren't about money but are labors of love inspired by this amazing and gifted artist. Maireadium has a very strong love potion in it, and when you get doused with pixie dust you can't help but spread that love. The bumper stickers, the calendar(s), and the periodic table of CW elements are all creative efforts inspired in each of us that I believe are valid possibilities if proper procedures are followed. Now, Scott, more wallpapers please  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D! You and fiddler are wonderful artists in your own right. Thank you for sharing those gifts with us.


Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: Starman on February 22, 2008, 07:39:05 PM
   CW Ltd. may be interested in purchasing a calendar you completed, or in paying you for your work and publishing it themselves.  I would explore that with them, if you are interested in doing it. Just don't offer anything for sale or distribution until you get something worked out with them!   :)


Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: Moscapoet on February 23, 2008, 01:20:38 AM
That is correct. We must follow the proper channels but I can't help but believe that such beautiful work will find a home at CW.

Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers

I can hear the hoot coming from both of them. I'm thinking that is an August one because of the warm colors and since ANJ was filmed in August. Another nice one Scott.

I love it! Now we need a song to go with it. Perhaps "Fiddler with a porpoise" or "I fiddle on porpoise". Pssstttt, Mairead, anything that would go with this on your next CD?  ;) :D :D.

Ok, I will mention this for Starman's sake... Mairead really was NOT in the water with those cute dolphins, I added her into the picture of the dolphins.  The pose you see of Mairead was actually from a photograph taken at the Chicago Borders bookstore signing of last year.  The pose just happened to work perfectly for the picture.  :)


Incidentally, I love this smiley:     9)

Ok, I will mention this for Starman's sake... Mairead really was NOT in the water with those cute dolphins, I added her into the picture of the dolphins.

I LOVED PSP!!!!! It was the absolute best graphics program and I really got to be quite skilled with it. I switched to Macintosh in 2005, however, and they do not make PSP for Mac so I use Photoshop. I like PSP much, much better and I find that my graphics "work" was much better. I'm hoping to hone my skills in Photoshop a little more, but boy do I miss PSP like crazy. I recently signed a petition that someone made to make PSP compatible with Mac, lol.  :D

I swear by PSP... it's possibly the best software investment that I've ever made.  I bought version 6 back in 1999, brand new.  That program has paid for itself several times over for me.

Yes Mairead could be on a Star Trek episode. Remember that one with the hippies looking for the planet Eden from the original series. She could have fiddled nicely with them! Data? Mairead would have had better luck getting his cat Spot to play with emotion! OK, enough Trekkie talk!  ::). Now, on to more amazing creations by one of the enchanted forest Scotts, or anyone else who wants to chime in.

Scott,
I must say I love all the wallparers you have created of Mairead, especially the last one, but they all are so good.

I see you said you would do wallpapers for all the Celtic Woman Ladies. I would love to have you come on over to the lisakellyforum.net and do some of Lisa. I see that you have got to see some Shows, so perhaps you have not had a chance to see Lisa perform live. If not, you are in for a treat when she returns to the Tour; and that will perhaps be on the next Tour; but I believe Lisa will be there for the DVD filming in August.

You know, you have chosen one beautiful talented lady for these wallpapers. I know they took a lot of time, and talent, to create these, and thank you for these beautiful wallpapers.

Actually I HAVE seen Lisa perform... I went to seven shows last year, in addition to my three this year.  I also met Lisa at two of my M&Gs, she was so outgoing and friendly.  If you wish to see some of my Lisa wallpapers - and I've made a few - they are at Rich's Lisa fansite.  I just joined your Forum, I will post a few of my wallpapers there.

     I'll be getting the sample copies of the two calendars and some posters form the printer in a couple of weeks. I'll be sending a communique to Mairead's people about a variety of things and how best to pursue them. I'll let you know what I hear with regard to our creative projects and plans.

Awwww, now talk about a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow! Thanks Scott. I was wondering when your creative itch would get scratched again. BTW, the trial copy of the calendar is supposed to be ready next week. I'm also workin on poster ideas from some of your work as well as that of Jeff/JRRacing and Celtic _Fiddler. Now it will just be a matter of convincing the merchandising people at CW. They still have not responded.

Moscapoet,
That was my first thought when I saw Mairead and the rainbow.

Wow! Scott, that is so beautiful, and thank you.

Moscapoet, I believe the calenders will be a big hit with all the CW fans; now if the merchandising people at CW will just approve. Great work you are doing on that project Moscapoet, with much artwork from Scott, Jeff/JRRacing and Celtic_Fiddler.

Here is the first of two new ones.  I think, had Celtic Woman been around in the late nineteenth century, Monet would have been inspired enough to have painted them.  In any case, this is an actual location in the Shenandoah Valley, Virginia:

Here is the other new wallpaper.  Mairead is in the same pose as she was in the previous wallpaper, but a very different setting.  I will let everyone draw their own conclusions about the environment that I placed Mairead in here; I do hope you like it.

Indeed, like a fairy tale come true. I love the whole barefoot in the forest with the fiddle thought. It would make a great video if she decides to do a DVD, which she absolutely should. I think we'll have to wait for that though in a post-Celtic Woman Mairead career. For now though, we can just  ::zzz , and dream of the image that Scott created.

Yes, it seems that, much as Kryptonite affects Superman, Darth is rendered powerless by fiddle music and plots, without success, to keep Mairead's music from reaching his ears, as there are just too many of her fans everywhere and he cannot escape the sound.  Poor Darth!

Nope. Maireadium is a non-hazardous material. However, folks at the scene would break out in spontaneous dancing, singing, fiddling, and general merriment. It would cause a huge traffic jam as everyone got out and started rolling in pixie dust.  ;D The road might never re-open.

Oh, and by the way... for those of you who are fiddle-inclined, take a look at this pic that I found on google (please note, I did NOT modify this pic, it's exactly the way that I found it!)...

Tamberia, thanks.

It was really nothing to do. Its a single but very unique frame (frame before and after are nothing like it from what I can tell using step frame) from the Lord of the Dance DVD, Because the video resolution is so low I applied some simple image processing functions from MS "Picture it" program. Simple enough that I reproduced it with ease, as I lost the file I created years ago, Finding that frame on the DVD again took longer than modifying it. Maybe I shouldn't have said anything as it is a derivate work of a copyrighted video. But  maybe I'll be forgiven if it sells a few copies of the DVD for those who want to find that frame.

Sometimes it the really simple things that come out good.

Well everyone, after a long layoff, I have returned to making Mairead wallpapers... I certainly had enough creative inspiration!

Here is my latest, with two girls who you probably know:

A lot of the credit goes to YOU, my friend.  It's easy for me to make good wallpapers when I have great pictures to work with.  ;)  But, thank you.  :)

Admittedly, there was a lot of work to make this one blend in the setting that I used...

That is marvelous! Another shot for next year's Mairead calendar!!!!!!!!!! This actually fits with one of my poems so if you don't mind I'll post that here. This was written in 2007 and is in my book, Inspirations from Celtic Angels.

                     MAIREAD BEACH

        1) Join me here on a beach so fair
                that others fail when you compare.
            See dunes and shapes from artists dreams
                carved with gentle and flowing streams.
            A soothing breeze from unknown parts
                will calmly stroke your weary hearts.

        R) Yes, this dear friends is Mairead beach
                 with sand so soft like fuzzy peach.
             The beauty of her peaceful shore
                  lives in my heart forever more.

       2) Paradise lives here on this beach.
                It's a dream come true within reach.
           Such gentle waves and lovely scenes
                will teach you what real loving means.
           The seagulls dance and trees will sway
                like flowing hair when you're at play.

       3) This beach will never lose appeal,
               and once here long your heart she'll steal.
           I thank God for this lovely gift
               on which each breeze your heart will drift.
           Heaven made this beach just for you,
                so love her always, love her true.

        c 2007 Scott Manke aka moscapoet

Mairead Beach...
The one place, I so wish to be...
I can see the blue sky, feel the warm sun, and gentle breeze, and hear the hypnotic sound of the waves, as they gently caress the white sandy shore. ...Such bliss.
                                     Thank you.

Last night I emailed Scott about that very subject!  I'm sure inspiration will strike again.  With a lovely subject like that, how could it not?


Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers
Post by: Scott on March 31, 2009, 10:08:54 PM
Ugh... I just tried the wallpaper as a desktop for myself for the first time... you are all correct, all the desktop icons are camouflaged against the flowers... not good.

You have to realize I was just looking for a beautiful backdrop... but I will come up with an alternate background for the wallpaper, I promise.

Maybe the one I made would be good for a wall-hanging or something, even if not as a desktop....








Title: Re: Mairead Wallpapers

just drop your desktop icons in the start up menu and its not a problem.

Here is my latest.  You all know that I do love "Nil Se'n La"... but...

...there was once a time when the tours started differently.  Picture a stage, where wisps of purple smoke have been floating around.  Then it goes dark.  Mairead steps out onto the stage, barely visible in the dark, if at all.  A single spotlight slides down from above her, making her for a moment the only spot in the entire theater that is visible.  Then she brings her bow to her violin, and one of the most beautiful sounds you can imagine comes from it.  Then you sigh contentedly, because you realize that another Celtic Woman performance is beginning again...

...THAT is what this wallpaper means to me. :)

Definitely time for a new Mairead graphic.  Here is a Mairead Mastercard.  I must give credit where credit is due: Rachel gave me the idea, in fact she and Karen have each been working on similar themes, but neither has produced anything about it in a week, so I decided to go ahead with my own version.  Here it is.  I know "Priceless" is the slogan for Visa, not Mastercard, but I think Mairead is truly "Priceless." :)

Woow Scott, you know fiddles don't like water, but this is realy beautiful

For some reason, the first thing I thought of when I saw this was the old move The Glass Bottom Boat (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0060463/) with Doris Day.  Pure genius, Scott, although I hope the fiddle is waterproof.

Edd from Mexico calls this MerMáiréad.  ;D Now I wonder if there is room for her in  ;odo As for the waterproofing, in my book she plays her fiddle under water after a dolphin blows a bubble and encases the fiddle in a protective coating. Scott, you are really tempting me to have your graphics included in my book!

You need to include directions on how to get there, Scott.  :)  Looks like a place that I'd want to visit.  I might even consider living there.

It's been far, far too long since my last Mairead wallpaper.  Here is my first Mairead wallpaper of the Believe Era... for her new song "Women of Ireland." :)

This one is hilarious  -). You should Tweet it to her (or send it some other way); I'm sure it would put a smile on her face. Another amazing work of art, Scott.

Normally celebrity endorsements don't work on me. But seeing Mairead on that box...I'm tempted to go out and buy some lucky charms  ;D.
