Lions Gate Virtual Views - March 17, 2021
Welcome to Lions Gate Virtual Views. We are glad that you can escape with us on these weekly virtual journeys!
Please email Melanie with any feedback or suggestions for future program content. Enjoy!
Happy St. Patrick's Day! Before we get started on the day’s activities, here is a brief History Channel video on who St. Patrick was:
Now let’s start the morning with this cute Irish limerick:
Now some of you may want to try to write your own limerick. If you do, this video is short and will give you the basics on how to. Please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to share.
Time for some exercise! I found this great video with exercises to improve balance, which in turn will decrease the risk of falling. This is definitely one that you will want to do at least three times a week.
I am not sure if you have met anyone with an Irish name, but I came across this video of an American learning how to pronounce Irish names and I thought it would be a good exercise (in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day and Ireland) for us to work our brains:
I’m sure that you have your own special stew recipe but I thought I would share this. You might like to try making this for your dinner. I hope that I’ve whetted your appetite!
Since we have been talking about everything Irish (and we can’t travel there right now), I thought I would send you on this virtual tour of Ireland. Enjoy!
Or if you would rather end the day with a concert here is the spectacular Lord of the Dance. Amazing Irish culture and dancing.
I hope you have a lovely evening.
See you next week - Wednesday, March 24.
