    oh oh sounds good !

  2. Yes, lets all go to Ireland…I`ll start packing…

  3. I got the novel (English version) in my mailbox Friday, but I have not started reading the book yet. Have somebody read the novel yet, what is it about?
    I am looking forward to see the movie, because Gabriel will be in it, but it would be nice to now what the movie/novel is about.

  4. I’m very hard-pressed to describe what the book is about, Nora. I gave up trying to read it in despair!

    Maybe this is why the man seems to be under the radar at the moment. He’s closeted in a sound-stage somewhere.

  5. “Anyone up for a trip to Ireland now!?”

    Brendan, I just noticed was in Braveheart with Mel Gibson. He was Hamish his childhood friend. I can not believe he keeps popping up lately I just saw an idie film with him in it that was made in 1998 just three years after Braveheart. Can not believe they are the same person.
