Oh wow I’m going insane. Why did I start this? Why did I promise to write 3 blogs a week, till June 21st, 2011 – maybe forever?
Well, obvious, Baglady. World needs saving. Urgent. Just DO it. [She does go on…]
The blogs will be brief, and all about living ASAP – who what how where when and why. THIS is Northern Ireland! and we are speaking to the world! Listen up world. Eist!
I shall now drop just a few names out of the millions of wonderful people who I know/trust/hope are working with the rest of us, to save it. Some famous people! some very famous, and lots lots more who you may not have met, yet. Just wait! till you meet them.
