Either that's a "no", or nobody's owning up to it. I did 2 short 'tours' in the 70's - but I doubt that counts!

For what it's worth I've always wanted to visit. And yes I mean Northern Ireland :) When I was growing up as a child under 10 in the 1960's I remember reading of and seeing images of the violence and couldn't understand the problem. I thought all Christians believed the same. I didn't understand the history or politics but I always instinctively felt a place for this country in my heart. Ah well...maybe someday.

BTW in THIS place you're NEVER alone :P

lol ... I find both Scottish and Irish accents nearly undecipherable at times... when I watch movies I cant count how many times I've hit the rewind button "Eh?"

Otherwise, nothing wrong with Irish accents or to be ashamed of.

I just do not like my accent... If I hear my voice on a video, I go straight into denial and chant - THAT'S NOT ME !! w00t.gif

Some say I do not have much of an accent, because my accent is not strong, many of my American friends who have heard me on the phone say the love it and can make me out clear as a bell... ... I guess if I lived in the heart of Belfast or Dublin I would have a stronger accent... !!

I just do not like my own accent.. And I do not think I am being silly.. It is my accent, my own voice lol.. Many of my friends feel the same if they hear themselves speak on play back.. We all laugh it off too ... We Irish love to poke fun at ourselves well some of us do ..tongue.gif

Well it's all in the buds I guess. As a child I never even saw a brocolli.... love it now.

The seaweed is called Dulse and I LURV it!! I am a savoury loving type person though, so if you're only into sweet stuff, you probably wouldn't like it.

While I am not from Northern Ireland, my family came from the Inishowen area - which is essentially right next door...

Actually, if you go back far enough, they say my family pratically ran the place... (Now we have trouble just 'running the front yard' :lol: )...

Dulse is a good source of minerals and vitamins compared with other vegetables, contains all trace elements needed by humans, and has a high protein content.[1]

It is commonly found from June to September and can be picked by hand when the tide is out. When picked, small snails, shell pieces and other small particles can be washed or shaken off and the plant then spread to dry. Some gatherers may turn it once and roll it into large bales to be packaged later. It is also used as fodder for animals in some countries.

Dulse is commonly used in Ireland,[11] Iceland, Atlantic Canada and the Northeast United States both as food and medicine.

FRIED along with all the usual ingredients of the great healthy British Breakfast.

If you don't believe me.. ask someone from Belfast!!
