  • Yes, happy holiday to everyone not going to work at 8pm tonight!

    I'm should be getting something green today, and if I do, there will be plenty of posts about it.

    So much to celebrate today. In 461 AD, the death (woohoo?) of St. Patrick, who made the snakes flee from Ireland.

    Today in 1776, we made the British flee from Boston: http://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/british-evacuate-boston

    Today is Filet-O-Fish Friday, when good Catholics are made to flee from their meat-eating routines. Woo Hoo! Or is that Wahoo?

  • Corned Beef is in the crock pot.

    We got a special dispensation from the Catholic Church:

    Wow. You really CAN have it all if you are part of the Hartford Archdiocese! :)
