Happy Green St. Patrick's Day

Sunny morning but the air is way too thick, looks like a humid summer day instead. Hmm.

So even in honor of the little bit of me, maybe 2 %, that's Irish, I will don my green clothing. (It's actually reclaimed from Christmas) Oh why not, any excuse to wear, talk, write or be green.

If you want to be a little cheeky, you could always get a nice outfit from the local Goodwill, or wear something passed to you, and hang a little paper tag in the shape of a 3 leaf clover (from your to be used scrap paper pile) around your neck pointing out that you are indeed wearing green despite what ever color it is. After all, it is suppose to be a fun day!

And for eats you can always opt for corned beef and cabbage, without the beef, by stewing up a big pot of the traditional veg and perhaps quadruple the amount of herbs and spices for an equally yummy feast. Add some locally made/organic bread, for dipping, to top it off.

And naturally you have to wash this or any other meal down with some green beer. I don't mean the kind that is literally green in color. No, I mean the other kind of green. You know, locally brewed, maybe even organic. Or heck, you can even make your own beer. And try drinking that green beer in real glass, it sort of elevates the occasion if you know what I mean. (And if you want to step it up a notch, try a recycled mug!) And besides, no wasted plastic. You might have to BYOG (bring your own glass), but you'll be the eye of envy. (Isn't this where I say something about green with envy?)

So have some green fun today. It's a perfect day to spread the word. Sort of like what the original St. Patrick did 1500 years ago.
