No I am not Irish, but way back some of my ancestors
fled France for Ireland, and then Ireland for Canada.
One year when my children were small we -- a very
celebratory family -- bought them green toys and hula
hoops, and green candy and had green ginger ale, and
green champagne for the adults, and a tradition was

So Happy St. Patrick's Day.  My family is not entirely
certain when we'll celebrate, but we will have a bit of
a green fest and that seems right with spring coming on
soon we hope.

Have a joyous St. Patrick's Day.
