Please Help Save White O’Morn, the Famous Cottage From the Movie “The Quiet Man”

Actress Maureen O’Hara passed away recently without living to see a project completed that was very important to her. The Irish cottage that was used to depict White O’Morn, the Thornton family cottage in the very popular and iconic 1950’s movie, “The Quiet Man”, has fallen into disrepair.

Ms. O’Hara has publicly stated several times how much she wanted to see that the cottage be restored and now her many fans and the fans of the beloved movie are signing a petition to get the restoration started and have a memorial be put in place to honor Ms. O’Hara and the movie, ‘The Quiet Man.”

Here is the link to the article concerning these proceedings:

And here is the link to sign the petition:

Thank you all so very much!

What Is a Commonplace Book? A commonplace book is someone’s personal collection of quotes, witticisms, observances, poems, and even graffiti that have inspired them, made them laugh or touched them in some way. Many famous people throughout history have had commonplace books, such as Thomas Jefferson, John Milton, Mark Twain, Henry David Thoreau, and the scientist, Carl Linnaeus. I began my commonplace books while I was in junior high school in the early 1970’s and so I have almost 50 years of quotes about such a wide variety of topics told in ways more eloquent, wise or humorous than anything I could ever come up with. And it’s wonderful that in this type of blog, I can also include some of my favorite artists and their artwork as well. I'm almost 60 years old with a daughter, 3 granddaughters, and a kitty-cat. I live in beautiful Bay City, MI. I have 2 associate degrees with additional college credits and hopefully I will be able to complete my goal of obtaining my Bachelor's Degree in Accounting. (Life keeps getting in the way). I enjoy literature, horse racing, baseball, NFL football, The Olympics, astronomy, history (particularly Irish), art, old movies, Downton Abbey, The Good Wife, Unit One, science, The Beatles, Frank Sinatra, U2, The Doors, oh and so much more! I have very eclectic and prolific interests. If you would like to check out my personal writings, please go to
