This is me Baglady celebrating the first Omagh council pledger Declan McAleer! Joy agus gladness; and speaking about:
3] GASAP SASAP CASAP: Filming ASAP with Jacky Ingram
4] Baglady @ Flatlake
5] Climate change scenarios workshop at Glencordial Farm with Transition Omagh and Wayne Foord, Queen’s University Belfast
GASAP, SASAP and CASAP stand for Grow, Shop and Cook ASAP with Baglady. All of which we’ve got started in Omagh! Filming started in Bernie’s garden, then we bagged up and walked down into town, to Shop ASAP at my favourite shop The Salad Bowl and meet lots of friendly locals. The town is quiet, for a Saturday
Walked back uphill sharing the weight of the shopping and filming roadside rubbish, back to Bernie’s to Cook ASAP which was lots of chopping scraping and roasting. To be followed by EASAP, Eat Drink and Be Merry with Baglady. Food was fresh, healthy and tasty. Company was great. The Tesco wine was cheap but not Fair Trade. Watch this space for the film soon.
Baglady @ Flatlake . Weather wet and wild and sometimes sunny with a high cloudy sky like a cathedral roof at Hilton Park where Flatlake happens. There was mud and you had to make up your mind to enjoy. So we did. And the things we saw and heard and ate and drank!! the friends we made and met again!! The Omagh and Enniskillen a capella choir, led by Valerie with people I know singing! The funniest poetry slam I’ve ever seen or heard! The Gonzo zoo and the brilliant Andreas and the people who played with him. I’ve lost all the proper names of things because my programme dissolved in the rain.
There’s so much talent in this country – definitely no signs of recession brain drain yet. Wish people didn’t drop so much rubbish though. Hard work to clean all that up.
Climate change scenarios It’s a relief to get together and talk reality with other people who want a real future for our children. Wayne led us through 3 different climate change scenarios and 8 people from very different backgrounds discovered we all have a shared deep concern about how things are going AND a strong desire to work out how to prepare. Really good stuff with potential to make a lot of sense to a lot of people very soon.
