Well definitely be at work for one thing since St. Patrick's Day lands on a Tuesday this year But that's okay....the Social Club has arranged a "Best Dressed in Green" Contest, a Dept. Poster and Decorating Contest and last but not least snacks and frivolity
Since we cannot listen to Celtic Radio (due to Bandwidth issues) we shall listen to Celtic Music on CD. After work a couple of pints shall be in order
Truth in our hearts. Strength in our hands. Consistency in our tongues.

I can tell you where I won't be and that's here!!! I have to work a 24 hour shift Tuesday from 8:30am until 8:30 am Wednesday...., am off 1 1/2 hours and go to another job and work 6 hours and have 4 1/2 hours off and go back to job #1 and work another 24 hour shift. Tomorrow I'll be cooking St. Patrick's dinner for family and Saturday hubby and I are taking off for the day to Gatlinburg Tn to shop and stop by to visit two of my siblings and their spouses in Mosheim Tn. I surely will be thinking of all my friends here at CelticRadio!!!
I'm so sad to see your not going to make the party. Darn it. I will miss you maggimahone. But as we all know work comes first. I'll let ya know if anyonw gets stoned dunk! I sure look forward to being here on this holiday. I'll be thinking of ya maggimahone. Give those grandbabies a hug and kiss.
A Happy St Paddys' Day to you and all the Irish amongst us. Personally I do not celebrate St. Patricks Day in fact I celebrate only 3 Holidays a year. Xmas but more so as a family get together not a religious affair. Canada Day because it is the birthday of the Greatest Country on Earth, and Remembrance Day to Honour my fellow soldiers. All the rest including New Years and Robbie Burns Day are just another day.
Wow! I had to show my husband the posts. (he just rolled his eyes) I will also be checking out CR and Rindy, I will be on QVC also. I get into so much trouble!!!!
Maggie - when you are in Gatlinburg be sure to stop by Coffee and Company either in the Village Shops or up at the Glades. They have the BEST Highlander Grogg coffee. I have to buy several packages when I'm up there because all my friends down here want some.
My best friend and I can't celebrate St. Pat's until the following Friday. But we will make up for the lost time.
Above all, everyone have fun and stay safe.
"Nature always wears the colors of the spirit." -
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.
"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves."
