Happy St. Patrick's Day!

The coast of Northern Ireland
I consider myself Irish, despite the fact that my family is many, many years distant from having been residents. In my mind I am half Irish and half German, but today the Irish comes out swinging! This is one of my favorite holidays of the year. How can you not love a day dedicated to celebrating heritage, I ask you? Especially a celebration steeped in music, beer and great food! I hope all of you are Irish today and raise a glass:

May those who love us love us.
And those that don’t love us,
May God turn their hearts.
And if He doesn’t turn their hearts,
May he turn their ankles,
So we’ll know them by their limping.
