BONUS IRISH CROCHET PATTERNS:

http://www.favecrafts.com/Crochet/Crochet-Skirt-from-Naturally-Caron# - Doris Chan's Light Green Crochet Skirt - "This light green crochet skirt is calling your name. This is the perfect free crochet pattern you should be making for the hot summer season. The yarn is nice and light so it will keep you cool." - Well, it's not calling MY name, but that's probably only because I don't bear much resemblance to this adorable young model (I think that might be Doris Chan herself)! 

http://www.favecrafts.com/St-Patricks-Day/A-Cute-Shamrock-and-Leprechaun - Petra Monaco's Shamrock and Leprechaun - "Using a free crochet St. Patrick's day pattern is great for this holiday. Get in the spirit and become Irish for a day. This leprechaun and shamrock are great to hang from the rear view mirror of your car. You might also want to sew it to a bag or piece of clothing for a nice embellishment."

http://strngbn.tripod.com/clovere.html -
Adrienne R. Congdon's 4 Leaf Clover Doily - "Show your Irish side by decorating your home with some four leaf clover doilies. This is such a neat pattern. It makes for an excellent gift for an Irish friend."


BONUS IRISH RECIPES:

http://www.mrfood.com/One-Pots/Skillet-Sausage-n-Cabbage-5132//ml/1 - Skillet Sausage 'n' Cabbage - "What could be better on a cold winter night than a skillet supper bursting with the hearty flavors of smoked sausage and cabbage? Oh, it's so comforting!"

http://www.mrfood.com/Potatoes-Rice/Irish-Potatoes-6067//ml/1 - Irish Potatoes - "Okay, okay, no self-respecting St. Patrick's Day corned beef would be complete without the crunch and taste of cabbage! Well, we've just made it partners with our mashed potatoes, so now we've got an old favorite that's traditionally called Champs, but it's got a modern twist!"

http://www.mrfood.com/Beef/St-Patricks-Day-Special-1096//ml/1 - St. Patrick's Day Special - "Heard of the blue plate special? Well, this meal is the St. Patrick's Day special. And we have it every year in Chicago 'cause we spend every St. Patrick's Day there, marching in the parade and enjoying the great food and festivities!"


FINALLY:

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 03/15/15:

A Spanish teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine.

"House" for instance, is feminine: "la casa."
"Pencil," however, is masculine: "el lapiz."

A student asked, "What gender is 'computer'?"

Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two groups, male and female, and asked them to decide for themselves whether "computer" should be a masculine or a feminine noun. Each group was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation.

The men's group decided that "computer" should definitely be of the feminine gender ("la computadora") because:
1. No one but their creator understands their internal logic.
2. The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else.
3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later retrieval; and
4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.

(THIS GETS BETTER!)
The women's group, however, concluded that computers should be masculine ("el computador") because:
1. In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on.
2. They have a lot of data but still can't think for themselves.
3. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time, they ARE the problem; and
4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited a little longer, you could have gotten a better model.

The women won.


DATES TO REMEMBER:

Bridgit O’Malley


Oh Bridgit O’Malley, you left my heart shaken
With a hopeless desolation, I’d have you to know
It’s the wonders of admiration your quiet face has taken
And your beauty will haunt me wherever I go.

The white moon above the pale sands, the pale stars above the thorn tree
Are cold beside my darling, but no purer than she
I gaze upon the cold moon till the stars drown in the warm sea
And the bright eyes of my darling are never on me.

My Sunday it is weary, my Sunday it is grey now
My heart is a cold thing, my heart is a stone
All joy is dead within me, my life has gone away now
For another has taken my love for his own.

The day it is approaching when we were to be married
And it’s rather I would die than live only to grieve
Oh meet me, my Darling, e’er the sun sets o’er the barley
And I’ll meet you there on the road to Drumslieve.

Oh Bridgit O’Malley, you’ve left my heart shaken
With a hopeless desolation, I’d have you to know
It’s the wonders of admiration your quiet face has taken
And your beauty will haunt me wherever I go.
