She loved her picturesque country home spending endless time enjoying early mornings picking blackberries, tending to her garden, piecing quilts for her family, and preparing delicious homemade goods. Some might think this was a simple life, but to her it was everything. Blessed with a listening and sympathetic ear, and love for her family made it inviting to sit on the swing and listen to her calm and reassuring ways. It was common to receive comfort by a soft touch, tap of her hand, a soft “hello hon” or “bye sugar.” Her life was seasoned with family, and our lives were enriched by the love she has shown us.

Pellegrini hopes lessons learned

first_img Pellegrini voiced his frustration with his players after they needed to recover from 2-0 down against the Championship side in the FA Cup fourth-round tie at the Etihad Stadium. City eventually won 4-2 after a Sergio Aguero hat-trick, but Pellegrini said after the game their defending was a “disaster” and he would have liked to substitute all 11 players. Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini hopes Saturday’s scare against Watford has shaken any complacency out of his side. Pellegrini, speaking at a press conference to preview the midweek Barclays Premier League trip to Tottenham, said: “It was a good lesson – to pay attention in the right moments. “In football the difference between winning and losing is very slight. “I can’t say what they saw of me, but I think we made the correct arrangements during half-time. “I think the reaction was very important, as was the way we finished the game.” City, who remain in contention in four competitions, now turn their attention back to the league and their bid for a second title in three years. The trip to Spurs, a side pushing for Champions League qualification, marks the start of a tough spell that could prove critical in the season’s final reckoning. In February, City host Chelsea in the league and FA Cup and then take on Barcelona at home in the Champions League. The Capital One Cup final against Sunderland follows on March 2. Pellegrini said: “In the way the season continues every match will be more important. Press Association “We have a month of February where we have very important games for the Premier League, to try to continue on the top of the table with Arsenal and Chelsea. “After we have knockout games against Chelsea in the FA Cup and the first leg against Barcelona, very difficult games. “From now until the end of the season we must continue in our best form.” City thrashed Spurs 6-0 when the sides met in Manchester in November, but the Londoners have found form under new manager Tim Sherwood and have won five of their last seven. Pellegrini said: “The results say that they have improved a lot. “They have won the last four (Premier League) games. I saw the last two games they played and they are playing very well.” Pellegrini believes Spurs are still in contention for the title and has not ruled out a push by champions Manchester United, who are now outsiders but have bolstered their ranks with record signing Juan Mata. Pellegrini, speaking ahead of United’s game against Cardiff, said: “I don’t think we are just three teams involved for the title. “Tottenham, Liverpool, Everton and Manchester United continue with chances. “In football you never know. We have 48 points more to play for and if you add 48 to 37 (United’s total), it is 85, an important amount of points. “I think an important player can change a team in every game. “I am not just talking about Mata and Man United, but Man United have bought a very good player.” The trip to White Hart Lane brings City up against their former player Emmanuel Adebayor, whose game has been revived under Sherwood with three goals this month. Adebayor had been frozen out by former manager Andre Villas-Boas and left City after disagreements with Pellegrini’s predecessor Roberto Mancini. Pellegrini said: “It is always important to have a striker Adebayor in a good moment so I am sure we are going to have a very tough game against them. “It is important I know that our team will try to go there and win the game, not the history with him.” last_img read more


How many steps does it take to do a marathon?

first_imgRetailer Declan Irwin shows no signs of stopping after completing the largest marathon in the world.Declan, of Irwin Expert Electrical, was inspired to take part in The New York City Marathon when he discovered one of his suppliers “Fitbit”, was the first-ever official fitness tracker partner of this year’s race. He successfully completed the race on November 6th in New York.Declan’s motivation to take on the challenge came from his experience selling Fitbit and Garmin Watches, this year’s most sought after Christmas gift, amongst the largest range of home electrical appliances at Irwin Expert Electrical’s showrooms in Letterkenny and Buncrana.
