Happy St. Patrick's Day

To my family and friends around the world, Happy St Patrick’s Day. There are so many great reasons to celebrate today; everybody has their own specific motives. Yet for many Irish people who live around the world, who are often quite reserved about actually being Irish, myself included, their own internal celebration is often a little more mooted than the rather more brash celebrations of others.  Yet we do celebrate. I personally celebrate with much quiet thought about what it means to be Irish and the affirmation of how proud we are as a people. How our individual and collective accomplishments are respected around the world. As for celebrating like all others do, well, as you know, we Irish do enough of that throughout the year.  Hope you all have a wonderful day.

Shown below are the customary photos of the kids in their Irish attire which Granny Owens sent a few weeks ago.
