Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Poulnabourne 1999 It wouldn’t be right now would it, without a shout out to one of my favorite days of the year. A celebration to all things Irish. A day when all of us become Irish. All of us ‘feel the green’ and go dance a jig. And most importantly today is the day we celebrate the finest drink ever produced by the hand of man.



It can’t be a St. Paddy’s post without a good Irish joke:

Paddy was driving down the street in a sweat because he had an important meeting and couldn’t find a parking place.

Looking up to heaven he said, ‘Lord take pity on me. If you find me a parking place I will go to Mass every Sunday for the rest of me life and give up me Irish Whiskey!’

Miraculously, a parking place appeared.

Paddy looked up again and said, ‘Never mind, I found one.’

While we are at it. How could we not have a fine rendition of everyone’s favorite:

Danny Boy:

It is a good day:

May the luck of the Irish always be with you, hey didn’t they have famines, bad kings, foreign invaders . .  er, nevermind.

Somewhere it’s time for a Guinness!



My Guinness is here!
