Well my blog site was getting a wee bit lonely so I’ve cleared away the cob webs and swept away the dust just in time to start your Friday with a little Irish-themed celebration in honor of one of the best party days of the year.
I had to set my blog aside in order to spend more time writing on my work in progress which I am thrilled to say is just about done. Another solid week of writing and the first draft should be done. I’m very excited about the progress I’ve made this year and really look forward to blogging again. I won’t be posting four days a week like I was, there just isn’t the time at the moment, but I plan to blog twice a week beginning in April. I thank those that have so faithfully followed my blog for your patience….
So put on your green and lets gather ’round the bar at our favorite pub and raise a pint or two to Ireland Forever and kick this party weekend off right…with some great music played by who else – Irish musicians!
If you’re reading this and you’re not at work…well…turn those speakers up!!
“The Problem With Some People Is That When They Aren’t Drunk – Their Sober” – Irish Poet and Playwright William Butler Yates
“Work is the curse of the drinking classes.” – Irish Writer and Poet Oscar Wilde
“There are many reasons for drinking. One has just entered my head – If a man doesn’t drink when he’s living, How in the hell can he drink when he’s dead?”
Now that you have watched these videos go out and enjoy your green beer and revelry. Enjoy the Irish traditions Saturday but please, don’t drink and drive!
“May your glass be ever full. May the roof over your head be always strong. And may you be in heaven half an hour before the devil knows your dead.”
