Not the "Ireland" I live in... But it's still beautiful and tantalising to know it's still out there.. Just a few hours away down the motorway from Dublin..
 
The Vagabrothers wake up in the Pod Páirc to the sound of Paddy the donkey and the day unfolds from there!

Sunday afternoon at the Bray seafront with a few thousand others (85-90k estimated). The clouds threatened but the rain stayed away!

We helped organise a conference a few years ago around the one question: "What happens if nothing happens?"

An Post? So Ireland broke away from the United Kingdom in 1922 becoming a free state, and was officially formed as The Republic of Ireland in 1948. But you can still spot relics of the not that distant past still in use today. It's painted green but it still says V.R.

And my mind is now wondering how many other intentionally "pun-ie" street signs there are out there...
 
A real street sign in Vallejo, California. I really would like to live there.

Exotic food items turning up in our local grocery store here in Ireland. Black-eyed peas (also called beans ) were served with corn-bread and yams in our house growing up. Nice to see these on the shelf in Dunne's today.

This is kind of a Ventura institution.. Nothing better than Andria's fried fish or their chowder on a sunny afternoon down by the marina.. I've got lots of great memories sharing meals with fam and friends. But to be honest there are better places for seafood and it's not cheap. But I'll keep coming. Tradition.

Not just a restaurant... This is a place of pilgrimage for me. When I used to work summers and weekends on Ventura Avenue - this was my go-to place several times each week. Had my 30th birthday party here. And I'm back every time I'm in Ventura. The Pork & Relleno Burrito with sour cream is my standard choice.. Johnny's sets the bar HIGH for this dish. (I've tried loads of others elsewhere and for me none compare.) I also love their flour shredded beef taco.. Actually I haven't had anything there that I didn't like.. To be honest..the "decor" (??) is pretty marginal. But that's part of the ambiance for me.. It's mainly a "take-away" place - with a formica table annex for eating in. Don't go for the dining experience. Go for the food!

Dickey's opened just last week in Ventura... I've got memories from sampling the Dickey's BBQ at the end of our street when we lived near Knox / Henderson in Dallas. So I couldn't resist stopping in to at least sample things.. I opted for a half rack of ribs, a pound of brisket, and an order of friend okra! The food was excellent - just as I remembered it. Service seemed friendly but maybe a little slow.. It's early days for this new branch and I think they weren't fully prepared for the wave of customers. (I noticed a line of people "out the door" at 7pm last week). But with great food like this I'm sure they'll up their game on the service end. I did think the half-rack at $12 / full rack $22 was a little pricey. The brisket seemed like a better value. But the taste was outstanding.

This is one of our first stop options whenever we get the chance to return to SoCal. We usually head there straight from the airport and grab an early meal watching the sunset overlooking the beach.
