It's that time of year to watch out for the "wee folk" ... Irish Leprechauns, that is! It's also the time when the shamrocks appear and for "the wearing o' the green," as we honor the patron saint of Ireland, Bishop Patrick, and everything Irish.
In Ireland they honor St. Patrick with a national holiday and a week of religious festivites. Celebrations in the U.S. include parades, festive dinners, parties and green beer. St. Patrick's Day is the day everyone gets to be Irish!
I would like to share with ye something special that came all the way from Ireland! It's just a small token of appreciation for the wealth of happiness that "YE," all my precious friends, have brought to me from this web site. Each and every one of ye have become my very own little "pot of gold" at the end of my rainbow and ye are all worth much more to me than any other riches I could ever own.
According to legend, a person who kisses the Blarney Stone in Ireland is endowed with the gift of eloquence and persuasive flattery (aka *Blarney*) Since we're not all fortunate enough to go to Ireland, we now have a virtual "Traveling Blarney Stone."
To kiss the stone in Ireland, ye have to lie on your back and bend backward and downward while holding on to a metal bar to position yourself to reach it. Ye may stimulate this experience by bending over backwards in your chair and clicking on the virtual "Blarney Stone" below to see ye upside-down kisses and to receive this Irish gift as well!.
If you don't have Java Applet capabilities ...
I have tried to include in these pages some of the things that I hope will bring ye some enjoyment for this very special holiday and hope they will place ye right in the Spirit for St. Patrick's Day.
Just click on any of the pages that may seem of interest to ye.
