Happy Saint Patrick’s Day, Everyone. Although I do not know very much about the historical background of the day, I do take time to thank my Irish ancestors for traveling overseas to start a new life. Like so many other people that I know, I have quite a mixed-European ethnicity; but, I am prominently Irish. I would love to visit Ireland someday. My sister was lucky enough to go with my grandmother when she was in high school, but I was too young.
While most people will be singing drinking songs and treating themselves to some Guinness, I will be grading papers and chowing down on some of these bite size treats. I have given up drinking for a few months, and my body has been much happier. I do miss an occasional glass of wine or beer though. Have one for me tomorrow?
