Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Happy St. Patrick's Day, Sam and Colman.  And get well soon, Colman.  I expect you back, arguing with me, soon. ;)

My family has a lot of Irish blood, but we're mainly Scots-Irish, though with a Welsh last name from about the 19th Century onward.  (My family's one claim to fame is that Captain Kidd was an ancestor of ours.)  The only difference between St. Patrick's Day and any other day is that my fiancee makes corned beef and cabbage -- my favorite dish in all the world, though a tad too expensive to eat regularly.

We usually just play pool and darts, drink stout and "Irish Car Bombs" -- which, by the way, should be taken down very quickly; don't make the same mistake I made last year -- and talk about how much we'd all love to visit Ireland, as Jen and I are planning to next year quite often (partly so that my dad can visit the Mother Country).

Anyway, hope everyone enjoys the holiday.  If you drink, don't drink too much, and don't drive.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
