It had to happen sooner or later… yes, a place for all Irish Trojan Fans to show their support for the great work of Brendan Loy and the Irish Trojan Blog.
Visit the Irish Trojan Fan Club Store to purchase your Irish Trojan Fan Club Stuff. This Store was created by me (Toni) and all proceeds will go to the Red Cross for Katrina Survivors.
NOTE FROM BRENDAN: I just want to emphasize, lest anyone think that my head has officially grown larger than a Category 5 hurricane :), that I had no part in the creation of the “Fan Club.” But, since the proceeds are going to the hurricane victims, I’m okay with it.
Coming Soon.. Robbiewear! Butterwear.. you get the drift.
Again, all proceeds go to Katrina Victim Relief Funds!

Fox news in located on the freeway at around exit 235 A
There are thousands of folk stranded up there with no idea where to go, no water, no food, no shade in 90 degree weather.
It seems at this moment the national guard has sent a few trucks up there to pick up a few of the people.
I think we need to start dropping water / food from the air!
I have been using the internet since before there was a thing called Netscape or IE — in fact, when I started communicating with people via computers, I had to explain what I was doing to friends and family because they had never heard of such a thing. Before blogs there was BBS (Bulletin Board Systems). Then came small chat networks (usually part of a university network), then bigger chat networks such as Delphi, and finally Prodigy and AOL.
When I first tried, AOL it was $9.95 an hour! I was one of 300 total users, and at the time the ONLY female user. Most of the users were businessmen with AOL accounts paid for by their companies for “research.” HA! My screen name was “TheOneGirl” because, well, that is what I was! My on-line chat escapades even made their way into a book called BabbleOn (long since out of publication)
In any case, I no longer chat much… but I do love blogs… and so now after 2 years of reading Brendan’s blog, I have my own. It is just a free blog site for now, part of the MSN Spaces service.

I promise NOT to be fair and balanced. :) I will be PG … ish.
Both of my parents were from Germany.
My mother a German Catholic, My Father a German Jew.
Both of my parents had very different experiences during World War II , both of them learned to love America because of it’s soldiers.
My Father and his family were Holocaust Survivors who came to the United States after the war, settling into life as New Yorkers complete with a Jewish Deli and a goal to become Americans.
My Mother, who’s family hid Jews in their shop and gave their food rations to Jews who could get none , stayed in Germany.
Both of my parents told stories about the America GI’s who gave them Chocolate and food and piggy back rides.
My Father Joined the Army not long after coming To America, they stationed him in Germany as an interpreter.
He met my mother while attending his Sergeants wedding ( he married my Mom’s sister ) and well I guess you could say I am here because of the American Army!
They say that when a baby girl is born, she caries with her all of the eggs she will ever have. I have thought about that fact many times when I reflect on my family. Sometimes I am struck by the thought that World War II could have ended my life before it began.
In a way I lived though World War II as well.
In the end I know that both of my parents loved America, Loved what this country stood for and wanted to raise their children in a place where being a Jew or a Catholic did not matter.
Thank you American Soldiers for giving people hope when they had none, and giving people freedom they so deserved.
MR. RUSSERT: Well, you said there were weapons of mass destruction.
DR. DEAN: I said I wasn’t sure, but I said I thought there probably were. But the thing that really bothered me the most, which the 9-11 Commission said also wasn’t true, is the insinuation that the president continues to make to this day that Osama bin Laden had something to do with supporting terrorists that attacked the United States. That is false. The 9-11 Commission, chaired by a Republican, said it was false. Is it wrong to send people to war without telling them the truth. And the truth was Osama bin Laden was a very bad person who was doing terrible things, but that Iraq was never a threat to the United States.
Each statment is just a Jewel… God I love Dean read the rest of the transcript here
WHAT the ??????
Update FAA is tracking an unidentified plane.
Update Small -Cessna - plane 3 miles from White house looks like the
problem is over they are letting people return to the building.
I just heard this on a local Radio Station KNEW 910
all they said was sketchy deatials then NOTHING….

UPDATE FROM THE WEBMASTER: ABC News reports:
A grenade was thrown within 100 feet of the stage where President Bush was giving a speech today in the former Soviet republic of Georgia, local authorities told the U.S. Secret Service.
The device did not go off and no one was hurt, the Secret Service said.
Local police told the Secret Service the device was thrown as Bush spoke in Freedom Square in Tblisi, the Georgian capital. The device hit someone and fell to the ground about 100 feet away from the stage, the Secret Service said.
The Secret Service said it was unaware of any disturbance until it was informed of the incident by Georgian police.
This after Bush called Georgia a “beacon of liberty.”
With his new CD out “Devils and Dust” my former favorite artist is in the news again.
His last CD “The Rising” sold over 580 thousand copies in it’s first week. “Devils and Dust” sold 200 thousand copies in it’s first week… it looks like Bruce offended over half of is fan base.
I for one will not purchase the CD. The title track about a soldier in Iraq is an insult to every American soldier past and present.
Bruce manages to twist every possible meaning of a patriotic heart into a heap of (Expletive)!
So I was watching Bruce Sringsteen tonight on VH1 Story Tellers…
He said our Civil Liberties were being taken away from us.
I know this may sound retarded but…
Could someone tell me the list of civil liberties and exactly which ones have been taken away???
After two weeks of being “Foster Parents,” we have officially adopted our new little dog named Squeakers. She is 8 months old and weighs 6 pounds. She is half Dachshund and half Schnauzer. She was rescued from a plastic bag in a dumpster in Oklahoma. We named her Squeakers because for now anyway she does not answer to her name (it was “Tilly” when we got her) but comes running whenever you squeak one of her toys.
The entire family adores her and I wanted to know if Robbie would like to be the “DogFather”?
Is this a new security measure?
Since our favorite love birds are clashing, I thought I would re-do the wedding site we have all come to love.
This year, I lost my Father and Grandmother.
My entire family is now dead..Mom, Dad, Brothers and all of my Grandparents.
What I would do to have any one of them back!
I would take them back in any condition.
The parents of Terri Schiavo want to take care of Terri in any condition, this I understand!
What I do not understand is how the laws of our country can allow
the starvation of a woman who had no living will instructing anyone to do otherwise.
I do not think it is the right of a husband or anyone to kill Terri Schiavo.
