Dear Lord, lest I continue in my complacent ways, help me to remember that someone died for me today. And if there be war, help me to remember to ask and to answer "am I worth dying for?" - Eleanor Roosevelt
The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to fill the world with fools. -- Herbert Spencer, English Philosopher (1820-1903)
Although they do not hold a St. Patrick's Day parade today in Angola, IN, I am comforted by the memories of those parades that I DID have the pleasure to see and to participate in --- the NYC St. Patrick's Day parade in the 60s that was headed up by the Kennedy family and Cardinal Spellman, and several of the St. Patrick's Day parades held in Chicago, where they dye the river green! . and where 500,000+ Irish-Americans celebrate the day in good Irish fashion! And, my friends, the emoticons tell the story! My best wishes to you all, and 'may you be in Heaven a half an hour before the devil knows you're dead!!!'
Well I certainly enjoyed reading everyone's greetings and comments here!! This has been a great day for Highlander Radio and our website. We had nearly 250 people listening to our broadcast at one point during the day.

No relief for me on this St. Paddy's Day, as I have to teach tonight, but I'll be thinking about all of you out drinking green beer! And for the New York branch with the brisk weather, here in LA it was 80 degrees and sunny...

Described as "bagpipes with an attitude," the energy and vitality that Wolfstone brings to the stage is infectious; their audiences are often brought to their collective feet with the opening notes of the first tune. Wolfstone and Mark saul in concert together..theres 1 heck of a shindig !!
i consider myself a sensitive inteligent fellow with the soul of a clown that forces me to blow it at the most crucial moment"..
Happy Saint Patrick's Day To all. The best holiday ever!!!!!!!!!!! I'm new at this so please forgive all faux pas that I may present.
To watch us irish dance is to hear our hearts speak! Life... is like a grapefruit. It's orange and squishy, and has a few pips in it, and some folks have half a one for breakfast.

I have just finished watching "The Quiet Man" and putting a good sized dent in a bottle of Jameson's while the wife drank Carolan's Irish creme. That has been our St Patrick's day tradition for about twenty years or so now. It keeps us off the streets and gives us something to look forward to doing. Once a year is just about right to view the movie but it gets better as the whiskey and Irish creme go down. By the time the fight scene starts I can't figure out why it didn't win the Oscar for best picture. Really though, it is a fun movie for about one viewing a year. I hope this has been a great St. Patrick's Day for all out there in cyberland.
