About Oilean
Joined August 2013
I'm from Ireland and totally new to this - so let's see how it goes!

I have a number of interests, including photography, travel, environmental issues, science, education, sailing, animals, health and a few more ... I'm (at the moment) planning on linking science & education for my first WA site.

I'm looking forward to getting into this process with gusto and getting to know others on WA. I firmly believe we can all learn so much from each other. Right now - just got to figure out how to get started!

Here's to success to all!

Hi,

Thank you for following. I know it was a while ago, I have been away from WA for a while - not least because we got a little pup that has turned our world (well, house anyway) upside-down - but I'm back now. If you need any help do not be afraid to ask. Gary

Hi Oilean, Thanks for the follow. Very cute dog pic. I miss having a dog. Not enough time at home right now. Planning on changing that with WA. I have cats right now. My own and a bunch of Ferals that my neighbor and I take care of outside. I wish you much success with WA.

Thanks Jazzfairy. I know - dogs are wonderful but do take time, and I think if you don't have time, it's best not to have a dog. Hopefully that will change for you soon. They're a wonderful addition to any household. Cats are great too. Such 'my way or the high-way' personalities. Hope WA goes well for you too. Are you into Jazz (given your profile name)? I'm from Cork in Ireland and there is an International Jazz festival on this weekend (and ever October). It's very popular and can be a lot of fun.

Hello Oilean. Like Animate I was drawn to your profile by the picture of your dog, the obviously proud owner of a lovely stick. Hope you are doing well and have made a start. There's only so much learning you can do by reading. Eventually you've just got to get your feet wet and not mind making mistakes and/or having to ask for help - though I must admit I'm not that great at asking for help myself.

That's the lovely Lucy! She believes she's a human dressed up as a dog I think (not that we see too many humans running around with sticks but she hasn't worked that one out yet!) WA is going ok but due to have a lot more time devoted to in come Nov. I'm quite looking forward to it Hope it's going well for you too. Carolyn

Thanks for the return follow, Oilean. I figured that with a happy dog on your profile pic, that you were an animal lover. My profile pic is one I took when I was volunteering in a local pound - dogs generally are not happy there. I was involved in rescue and have 4 ex-pound dogs as a reminder. I hope that you managed to figure out how to get started and that you are well on your way.Here's wishing you success!
Reply
oilean Premium
Yes - definitely an animal lover!! I really admire people who rescue dogs - they can come with so many issues. We have a small house and no garden so at the moment it's jus one dog for us - this is likely to change when we move. Will get any extra from a rescue center. Cats are good too, I love the way they are so independent. It's always nice coming across other animal fans. Best of luck to you on our WA journey. Carolyn

Animate Premium
Actually, most animals in the pound are fine - it's their owners that have the issues. Many have no empathy or compassion, and an animal is just another throw-away commodity when they are sick of it. Yes, better to save an animal from the pound than to encourage breeders to breed more.

Hi again Oilean, I noticed that you said "refollow." I followed you once and then it said I wasn't? Strange. I don't understand why I follow people, and then later on sometimes it will say I am not. Sorry about that. :P I have never unfollowed anyone.

Thanks for the reply. :)

Thanks for the follow back. So far, I'm enjoying it, though not making the progress I want as my personal life is taking over and I'm just not getting time I need. My mother-in-law is very unwell, along with other commitments, family, work etc. I'm hoping November will be a calmer, more structured month when I'll be able to commit at least 2hrs/day to WA (and hopefully they won't be spent reading new & interesting blog posts ... Which is what I spent any WA time doing now -lol! Hope it's going really well for you ... See ya around WA!

Thanks for the follow back! Onto Level 2 - just put up first page this afternoon, so feel like I can retire now :) It's the content bit that's a bit daunting for me, but I do like the way the training steps through it - gently but definitely and very clearly. The system seems to work well for me (so far). Bit addictive though ... got to pull myself away :) Good complaint I suppose.
