    Happy St. Patrick's Day

    I don't know if all countries celebrate it or not but I am going to wish you all a Happy St. Patrick's Day. And I just realized I forgot to wear green today. Crap!!!!!

    Re: Happy St. Patrick's Day

    Yes, we do celebrate it here to the point of wearing green. I had one faithful green sweater that I wore every year, pretty near the same age as me.

    Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!

    Does anyone like green beer?
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

    As long as you are not looking forward to green beer.

    My husband just told me that green beer has been around quite awhile. One day a bar owner asked if he could put some green colouring in my husband's beer, and my husband threatened to 'kill' him if that was too happen. They were great friends so the threat wasn't taken personally.

    I actually don't like the taste of any beer, just thought I would add that important bit of info.

    I have had green beer. It is just regular beer with green food coloring so if you like beer then it is no different.

    I suppose it is the same with green tomato ketchup. Taste may be the same, mental association is slightly different. Although I suppose that if you are sitting in a dark bar, you don't really notice it as much.
