Happy St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day.
St. Patrick's Day is celebrated by the Irish and Irish at Heart in big cities and small towns alike with parades, "wearing of the green," music and songs, Irish food and drink, and activities for kids and more. We've read that some communities even go so far as to dye rivers or streams green! (That's just wrong).
I, Ro,b heard today on the Boston radio station WBZ-AM 1030 (it's a clear channel station meaning we can hear it in Washington, DC at night) that people in the Irish-laden area of South Boston, Mass. were standing outside of Irish Pubs at 6 a.m. for their opening at 8 a.m. to take the day off and start drinking their green beer. UM... I think that's a little extreme (and I AM Irish).
Anyway, for all of those who were into it, there's even a website devoted to events around the U.S. and Canada!! WOW. Who would've thought it was that big of an event? The website is:
Neither Tom nor I were wearing any green, unless you count Tom's complexion after eating corned beef that someone brought into his office (and he said it was Nasty!).

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
