Blogging my LED candle light

Blogging by LED light during Christmas Season. By Jannet Walsh, Minnesota Native Daughter


Nothing beats blogging by light-emitting diode, LED, flameless candle lantern during the Christmas season. The candle has a timer feature, will turn off after five hours and goes on again at the same time you turned it on. I got mine at Hererger’s in Willmar, and I’m testing it before I give it as a gift to see it really works.

Irish Roots – Home to Knockanarroor

Home to Knockanarroor – Project Overview
This is a video project of my journey back home to my family’s roots in Knockanarroor Townland, located just east of the city of Killarney in County Kerry, in western Ireland. Knockanarroor, pronounced “knock-on-a-roar” is an unmarked dirt road where my grandmother’s family lived at least until 1840s, before the Great Famine in Ireland starting in 1845. There are several spellings of Knockanarroor, so I am using the spelling from the 1911 Irish census. The project was photographed in April 2011. View video and full story at CNN iReport.

More videos will be posted in December.
