Happy St.Patricks Day

It is unfortunate that St. Patrick’s day is in lent. But then it is a day to remember a most heroic saint. It is not a day to celebrate  and drink green beer–an abomination to my favorite deacon–or to celebrate all things plastic Irish.

Here is a video from the History Channel were  they (surprise) get it mostly right.

Oh and please remember that the true Shamrock has only three leaves. St. Patrick, as my favorite deacon often rants, could not have taught the Trinity with a four leaf clover.

Here is a nice video of Ireland. Caveat: it is almost never as sunny as in this flyover.

To my favorite deacon: Slainte.  BTW: He says that the Irish idea of a seven course meal is a six pack of  Guinness and a potato.
