A boy warns his younger brother of dangers lurking in their home in this  wonderful stop motion short by animator Pete Levins, inspired by the art of Greg ‘Craola’ Simkins. To wit:

“I’m scared of the monster who’s climbed up the stairs… I’m scared by gelatinous goop in eclairs!”

Marie Quinn has made a renewed appeal last night on her Facebook for the public to help her track down her two brothers.

Marie’s mother, Helen, had two boys in mother and baby homes before leaving for Liverpool where she got married and had two more children.

Marie told the Irish Mirror on September 9:

“My mum got pregnant out of wedlock in the 60s and they put her in the mother-and-baby homes. I know she was in St Patrick’s on the Navan Road and she also mentioned Dunboyne. She never kept the fact I had two brothers a secret from me – she told us they were adopted and was very open about it. After the youngest child she fled to Liverpool. She met my dad and had my brother and me. She always wanted to search for the boys but wasn’t allowed at the time.”

She’ll probably hate me for this… but a MASSIVE shout out to my big sis Martina Skelly who won the hotly contested Women in Business Award at last night’s fantastic Startup Awards 2013.
Martina is CEO and co-founded YellowSchedule.com with myself over two years ago.

Testimony to all her hard work -YellowSchedule also won the Online Startup of the Year award last night too!
