Have A Very Irish Christmas!


This photo was taken at 4:00 am by my son on the campus of Notre Dame.

I’d like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, with a heartfelt thanks to all who have taken the time to read and to my “web guy” Shane who makes this all so easy to keep up with.

May the Peace of the Season be with you all.

And here’s to a 2007 Notre Dame Championship!

    Beautiful photo, Kim. Thanks for sharing that and your on-target insight with all of us throughout the year. As an up-and-coming nurse, I have already learned some important lessons from your posts.

    Gorgeous photo. It makes me all misty-eyed for my days at ND: Coffee in the O’Shag coffee shop; Post-War fiction and Transatlanticism; and beers at Corby’s.

    That is an awesome photograph. I would like to make a snowman of a doctor, and put a stethoscope around his neck 🙂
