Friday, March 17, 2017. I've been a little less focused on this celebration since they debunked the priest driving out all the snakes from Ireland. I believe the fossil record concluded there had never been any snakes to drive out which would have made driving them out a wee bit easier. I think one of the things folks are invited to do is to become Irish for this one day. That way they can wear green, go to parties, and drink a whole lot of green beer. Sounds like some good old American capitalism to me. What say you? And, oh yeah, here's an Irish blessing for one and all, "May your neighbors respect you, Trouble neglect you, The angels protect you, And heaven accept you."
