Its March 17th - you know what that means. Crack open the Guiness, slip on the green socks and get in a fight.

Happy St. Patricks Day everyone. Top of the morning to ya.

Back in the seventies my then wife coaxed/persuaded/twisted my arm into buying a green velvet dinner jacket (eheu fugaces). I wore it sporadically, but it really paid off in '82 when my partners and I were invited by the people we were dealing with to the St Patrick Day's Ball in Dublin.

Care bears: destroying society's supply of decent fighting men since the 80s.

We did get dressed and go out for a night on the town. For some reason at the venues I go to the patrons will take the smallest event as an excuse to prepare some very over the top outfits.

Question :  Why do the Irish wear green on St. Patrick's Day ?
 
Answer:     To celebrate the day that St. Patrick drove the snakes out of Ireland, and asked the Irish to
                 wear green on that day, so that he could tell them apart.
Dis Aliter Visum
"Beware of martyrs and those who would die for their beliefs; for they frequently make many others die with them, often before them, sometimes instead of them."
