Hello From Arizona

Travel Forums Introductions Hello From Arizona

Hello Everyone,

My name is Bit and I am a rare breed, an arizona native. I travel quite a bit carrying Celtic & Cowboy music to audiences throughout North America, South America, England, Scotland and Ireland. Back home, I help others plan their vacations in Ireland, suggesting itineraries, locating good airfare deals, when possible, helping them find the best car rentals, etc. As if that wouldnt keep me busy enough, I also design jewelry and hold down an 8-5 weekday job, as well as juggle two teenage boys, three horses, three dogs and two cats.

Someone once asked me when I found time to sleep. I told them I slept on the airplanes, as I traveled.

Welcome to TP!

Celtic music is amazing

Thank you all for the delightful welcome!


I adhere to the theory that I will sleep when I am dead, I suppose! I average four hours a night sometimes 6 if I am really lucky or my body revolts on me!


Thank you for the tip of the hat!


I love all music. Being able to showcase both Celtic and Cowboy music is a great joy for me. To be able to meld them together and share the history is an honor!

Slan Beo,

Bit Devine

Tapadh leat for the welcome. I was just in Scotland last June with my boys. The weather was a terror but we had the best of times. Our only regret was not making it to Skye, as the bridge was closed and the ferries shut down. Skye is where my Gran spent part of her early childhood.

Slàn leat,

A belated Welcome to TP Bit!!!!

I'm a native Arizonian (Arizonite?) myself........but left in 1971 for parts unknown. Tucson, when there were only 90,000 (give or take) people there!!! Had a chubby little horse named Peaches and used to trail ride every summer in the Catalina mountains. Ah, youth, where did it go?

To quote the singer/mathematician Tom Lehrer....."Midst the sagebrush and the cactus, I'll watch the fellows practice, dropping bombs, through the clean desert breeze, yeehaa....."

Sorry, grew up too close to Davis-Monthan's all in fun!!

No apologies necessary, I love Tom Lehrer. H eis quite irreverrant, which makes him that much more likeable. Arizonan would be the correct term. In 1971, my charge's name was "Miz Molly" a gorgeous Chocolate brown and white paint. Tucson is well over the 90K mark, to be sure. However, we are still infinitely better than Phoenix! I was born and raised here in the Tucson Valley though my mountains to ride were the Rincons. THe Catalinas were for hiking, snowball fights and spelunking.

Many thanks to everyone for the warm welcome. I hope that I can contribute much to these boards!
