Aahhhh yess, the day Chicagoans turn the river green and invite the entire world to come and drink, eat, & urinate on our sidewalks.

Other than turning the river green, how is that different from any other day? [:-dev3][:D][:-dev3]

Every other day they do it on their own; on this day, they're invited.

Hi All,

Happy St. Paddy's day![:-party]

This used to be one of my favorite days of the year. With a name like Michael Patrick Joseph O'Handley you'd think I'd be 100% Irish. Truth is, I'm not sure whether the progenitor was Irish, Scotch, English or an Arab trader who jumped ship in Scotland (Although I think I'll just go with Scotch or at least Celt.).[:-paperba

We heard for decades that the O'Handley's came to Cape Breton, minus the "O", from County Roscommon. Then a distant cousin emailed me the document below about 5 years ago. What's a mongrel to do when his favorite myth has been destroyed? [:-weepn]

My, the old spell checker has a hard time with the celtic heritage, doesn't it. I haven't seen that much red underlining since I left high school. [;)]

All of our ancestories are pretty much reduced to charming trivalities in this country anyway. Very few of us have any meaningful connection to "the old country". We're a mutt nation by and large, and it's an important part of our genius and success. Whatever we were once, we're now American-That, not That-American, IMHO. We're Americans first.
