We All Do ItWhy do we do it? We all have too much baggage in our lives. Things we buy and never use, or things we love but ends up packed away in the basement , garage or loft. We become hoarders.

My wife and I flew from Ireland via London direct to Cape Town on Wednesday night. After a 12-hour flight we arrived in sunny Cape Town the following morning.

My wife is terrific at spotting bargains especially
Today in Ireland we are celebrating Mothers Day. This special day is to celebrate the influence they have on their children, grandchildren and society.
