Happy St. Patrick's Day!

From GG Central to all our friends, especially those in Ireland, Happy St. Patrick's Day. We're feeling floopy with all the sad news. A brisk cup of coffee + a slice of toasted Irish soda bread has fortified us. The Celtic cat turned up her bright pink nose at any caffeine (she really does not need it!) but deigned to eat a few raisins her editor pried loose from the toast. (Yes, yes, we know, it's not authentic Irish soda bread. OK, it's Irish-American soda bread. It is delicious & that's all that counts today.)

So. To links Irish. Via the lovely Madam Mayo, we just visited the Leprechan Fairy Watch in Tipperary. Giulia watched it for awhile but gave up - she has no discipline. Harumph. And for the literary minded, a beautifully interactive website for Yeats lovers. And if you don't love Yeats, oh woe, there's no hope for you.

Imagine Ireland is a year-long Irish cultural festival in the United States. Please check the website for activities in your town. New events are added regularly so a newsletter subscription is recommended. And now....another slice of toast is calling our name.
