Happy Saint Patty’s Day, folks! I know it was just a couple of days ago that everyone was worried about getting stabbed 23 times; But now that we have survived the Ides of March, we can kick back a couple of beers with our pals and relax a bit.
I am not Irish, but you can still kiss me anyway; Don’t go and pinch me though. I can’t afford the plane ticket to kiss the Blarney Stone and I am having a hard time finding a leprechaun. I really need to catch one of those little guys and make him tell me where his pot of gold is at. Who knows, maybe I will get lucky!

I will, likely, lock myself away in my home studio today and drink something stout while listening to some Flogging Molly or the Pogues. As a general rule, I do not typically go out on major drinking holidays. I know,.. so boring. Who knows, I may grab the wife and head over to the Chatham Tap for a round as well as some fish and chips! If you go out today, remember to be safe and drink responsibly.
On a closing note, I leave you with a traditional Irish blessing of good fortune.
“May you always have
Walls for the winds,
A roof for the rain,
Tea beside the fire,
Laughter to cheer you,
Those you love near you,
And all your heart might desire!”
