As Irish Americans party, peace is still fragile in Northern Ireland

This photo of Belfast City Hall was taken last November, about a week before the British Union Jack was ordered lowered via vote by the republican majority on Belfast City Council.  This photo of Belfast City Hall was taken last November, about a week before the British Union Jack was ordered lowered via vote by the republican majority on Belfast City Council.  Almost two years ago, Belfast City Hall hosted an outdoor concert by Snow Patrol that drew approximately 15,000 fans who wanted to catch a glimpse of one of the world’s most popular current rock bands. The band hails from Bangor, a suburb of the country’s largest city.

If you’ve ever seen a replay of the concert on the music channel Palladia, it’s easy to see that this was the kind of evening political leaders envisioned in the small country created through the Government of Ireland Act of 1920 – otherwise known as partition – when the Good Friday Agreement was signed into place back in 1998.

That was the treaty that essentially was supposed to end the violent conflict and massive sectarian strife that had been taking place since the late 1960s and had escalated into nearly full-blown war from the early 1970s through the mid-1980s.

Smelling like a brewery generally isn’t looked upon as a good thing. But Cape May Soap Company has teamed up with the Cape May Brewing Company to make this soap – which gives new meaning to the expression “relaxing with a beer.” Made with the brewery’s Sweet Stout, the Beer Soap sells for $7 a bar at Teaberry Antiques in Clermont.

Smelling like a brewery generally isn’t looked upon as a good thing. But Cape May Soap Company has teamed up with the Cape May Brewing Company to make this soap – which gives new meaning to the expression “relaxing with a beer.” Made with the brewery’s Sweet Stout, the Beer Soap sells for $7 a bar at Teaberry Antiques in Clermont.

“We shed a tear or two for using this fantastic brew for our soap base, but some sacrifices must be made for art,” reads the label on the soap. The company claims that hops, which most beer is made with, are beneficial for the skin. Other ingredients in the soap include coconut, palm, olive and soy oils, along with avocado, golden jojoba, aloe butter, avocado butter, cocoa butter, mango seed butter, shea butter and pure New Jersey wildflower honey.

Some might call 2013 an unlucky year. Not only does it end in the number 13, but it has two Fridays that fall on the 13th of the month – one this week and one in December.

Friday the 13th superstitions have endured for centuries – possibly even millennia.

  Mermaids Mermaids

CLERMONT  - Mermaids may be the stuff of legends – and Robert Kline has made them the object of his art. This lithograph print is a reproduction of an original watercolor by the St. Augustine, Fla., artist. Found at The Marketplace at Teaberry on Route 9 in Clermont, it retails for $15.99. Kline’s paintings and stories about mermaids, pirates and lighthouses reflect local folklore. This image, according to the story printed on the back, is based on lore from North Carolina’s Outer Banks about a young man who escapes from a pirate ship and is living in hiding on an island when a mermaid washes ashore after a storm. He rescues her and restores her to health. “Though I cannot attest to the tale’s veracity, it seems possible. No less than 16 natives of the island claim the story to be fact,” Kline writes – “the women delighting in the couple’s happiness and the men anxious to explain it was because she could not speak.”
