The Titanic’s Story is Cobh, Ireland

“I can still smell the fresh paint. The china had never been used,” recalls Old Rose in Titanic, the 1997 blockbuster film. “The sheets never slept in. Titanic was called the Ship of Dreams. And it was.” Before Jack, Rose and the Heart of the Ocean sailed into movie legend, I was already a long-time Titanic buff. Planning a visit to Ireland, I wanted to do more than kiss the Blarney Stone and visit ancient Celtic ruins. I was...

Lots of Good Crack to be Had?

Is that what she said? Did my sweet little Irish friend mention doing CRACK with me in Ireland? I mean, at times in my life I’ve been up for all sorts of various pleasantries, but CRACK? Huh? Surely this couldn’t be what she meant. So, instead of making a complete fool of myself by asking if she had actually thrown out the suggestion of us becoming drug addicts together on the green isle, I decided to do the reasonable thing and toss...
