Today is the day when everyone is a bit Irish

Wishing all a Happy St Patricks Day; and offering that wonderful, old Irish blessing to all!

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Every Saint Patrick's day, I make a corned beef and cabbage dinner, with Irish coffee with extra whipped cream for dessert. We have the Irish tenors as dinner background music and then watch "The Quiet Man" while having our Irish coffee in the living room. My Irish husband isn't a cabbage fan, so I only make this dinner once a year. Fortunately our dearest friends love cabbage, and dig in with great glee while Jim kind of pushes his cabbage around the plate. I guess his Irish, cabbage gene never activated! :-)
