Thanks for your wishes, Jane & Gerry, although it won't be March 17th here in the eastern U.S. for another six hours or so. Nevertheless, the green beer will be flowing soon in the pubs (we call them "bars") all over this country that claims more Irish residents than anywhere else (including Eire).
We have a saying here that "On St. Patrick's Day, everyone is Irish (or wishes that they were)". My forebears were O'Reillys, Flynns and Aherns from Limerick & Waterford, so my beer and blood will surely be flowing green when tomorrow comes. Faith, I once even lived in Dundalk (Maryland, that is). Erin go Bragh, and Happy St. Paddy's Day!!
Happy St. Patrick's Day to all! My maiden name was McCullough....very Irish. This was always one of my dad's favorite days!
