Happy St. Patricks Day

Happy St Patricks Day!!

Well , today I am cooking corned beef and cabbge along with some carrots and baby red potatoes. Traditionial Irish Dinner to be sure.

May your day be touched by a bit of Irish luck,brightened by a song in your heart,and warmed by the smilesof the people you love.

Dance as if no one were watching,
Sing as if no one were listening,
And live every day as if it were your last.

May the lilt of lush laughter lighten your ever load,
May the midst of Irish magic shorten every road.
May you taste the sweetest pleasuresthat fortune ever bestowed,
And may all your friends remember all the favors you are owed.


McQuillan walked into a bar and ordered martini after martini, each time removing the olives and placing them in a jar. When the jar was filled with olives and all the drinks consumed, he started to leave. "S'cuse me," said a customer, who was puzzled over what McQuillan had done. "What was that all about?" "Nothing," he replied, "my wife just sent me out for a jar of olives

A long time ago when the Earth was green, There was more kinds of animals then you've ever seen. And they'd run around free while the world was being born. The loveliest of all was the Unicorn! There was green alligators and long necked geese, Hump back camels and chimpanzees.Cats and rats and elephants but sure a you're born, The loveliest of all was the Unicorn! But the Lord seen some sinnin' and it caused him pain. He says, "Stand back, I'm gonna make it rain. So hey, Brother Noah, I'll tell you what to do. Go and build me a floating zoo." "You'll take two alligators and a couple of geese, Two hump back camels and two chimpanzees. Two cats, two rats, two elephants but as sure as you're born, Noah, don't you forget my unicorns!" Well, Noah looked out through the drivin' rain, But the unicorns was hidin'-playin' silly games. They were kickin' and a-splashin' while the rain was pourin', Oh them foolish unicorns. "So you take two alligators and a couple of geese, Two hump back camels and two chimpanzees. Two cats, two rats, two elephants but as sure as you're born, Noah, don't you forget my unicorns." And the the ark started movin' and it drifted with the tide, And the unicorns looked up from the rock and cried. And the water came up and sort of floated them away, That's why you've never seen a unicorn to this day. You'll see a lot of alligators and a whole mess of geese, You'll see hump back camels and chimpanzees. You'll see cats and rats and elephants but as sure as you're born, You're never gonna see no unicorn.

An Old Irish Blessing

May the road rise up to meet you.May the wind always be at your back.May the sun shine warm upon your face,and rains fall soft upon your fields.And until we meet again,May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Having a little Irish and a lot of blarney in me, imitation is the best form of flattery so I have stolen your green font idea.
