new at Irene's Country Corner
Welcome to my country Corner. My name is Irene and I live in
Rio de Janeiro, Brasil. If you are a returning visitor, welcome
back. It's nice to known that you are visiting again. If it's
your first visit to my country corner, welcome! Hope that you
enjoy your stay here and that it becomes one of your favorite
places to visit on the Internet.
website was created by me just for fun, with the purpose
of sharing with friends and family things I like and care
for and to show them varied facts, photos and other things about
my city and the culture of my country. You will find many pages
here that may not be of your interest. Have in mind that they
were created to entertain my friends, not to please all visitors.
But if you enjoy my website too, you are welcome anytime. :o)
use the links at the bottom of the pages to navigate. This site
is divided in corners. Each corner has lots
of pages for you to visit. Some of these pages have links
to other pages with related subject. To return to the main page
and choose another corner to visit, just click on the "Site
Menu" link that can be found at the bottom of all
you like the images used in my website and want to save them
to your computer, please look for the logos or text links at
the bottom of all pages. They will take you to the sites of the
people who created the graphics. I cannot offer for download
graphics which I did not create, that is why you should not save
anything from my pages. Hope you understand! All graphics I use
here are used with the permission of their authors and credit
is given at the bottom of all pages. Enjoy your stay!
Last updated in December 2008
friends, family and new visitors.
I did not have had time to update my website the past months,
I decided to remove the pages which were under construction and
those which needed updates. I will keep my personal site on the
internet as long as I keep my commercial site, however I will
not work on monthly updates anymore as I used to. I need to focus
on my commercial site and my family and if there is time, I will
work on my personal site too.
appreciate all awards, cards and gifts I have received along
all these years. Please, keep sending them to me. I may not post
them as often as I used to, but I keep them all in a folder in
my computer. :o)
you are a personal friend, an old friend I haven't seen for a
while, an internet friend of mine, a member of my family etc,
please contact me in order to have access to all sections of
this website. I am removing some pages from this website and
some content will be exclusively for old internet friends.
Personal Corner was entirely updated. All pages which
were under construction were removed. All of the Travel Pages which were removed a long time ago
due to lack of space in my server are back on line again. All
the links in the Personal Corner pages have already been updated.
Many sites are now closed and I removed the non-working external
Internet Corner was updated again.
As my site in Geocities which I used to post the cards and gifts
received from Internet friends was not working, I had to remove
the links to these pages.
A new page
to my Crafts Corner: Scrapbooking.
next Corner that will be updated will be the Holidays Corner.
a nice day!
Reading Corner had all pages and links updated. I
also added a few new graphics here and there.
Brazilian Corner is almost entirely
updated. Only a few pages still need updates in which I will
be working in 2009. A new page was finally uploaded after more
than a year after I created it. Better late than never: Brazilian Fauna. :o) There are lots of information
about the animals and some pictures I took at the zoo. Hope you
birthday cards I received this year (July 3) were posted in the
Birthday Pages in my Personal Corner. Thank you Annette
& Suzanne! Unfortunately, while updating the birthday pages
I noticed that the birthday cards I received in 2007 were not
saved in my computer before I had problems with Outlook. I lost
hundreds of emails and was unable to save many things. If you
sent me a birthday card in 2007 I will appreciated it if you
could resend it to me, please. Thank you!
