Betty Bolte has reminded us it's St. Patrick's Day, and wants to know if and how we celebrate, or how we’d like to. If you’ve joined me from Raine Balkera, welcome!
There is some Irish green running through my veins, but it's a few generations back. Growing up, the schools I attended recruited a lot of teachers from the British Isles, many of which were proud to wear the shamrock. St. Paddy’s Day was always a big celebration for them, and we joined in the fun.
I have a long list of countries I’d love to visit, and Ireland is very close to the top. How could it not be, with views like these? And then there’s the accent – the lilting words, the rolling R’s – sigh! And if I were to go there, why not go at the right time to celebrate with all the festivities?
Keep the chain going – it’s time to visit Patti Fiala and see what her St. Patrick’s Day is like! Patti loves motorbikes and writes hot romance on wheels - how cool is that?
