Random Thoughts - St. Patrick's Day Edition

  1. I may just start doing this on holidays only. I think I can keep myself on that schedule.
  2. Ireland is not a country. It is an island. Republic of Ireland is a country.
  3. April 15th - Tax Day and according to new documents the day I finally, absolutely and most assuredly will close on my house. We'll see.
  4. St. Patrick was not Irish; he was English. Also note that England is not an island. It is a country on the island of Great Britain.
  5. My sister implied that I was a nerd for having a favorite presidential speech. I wanted to dispel all doubt...thus trivia.
  6. The first St. Patrick's Day parade was in Boston almost 200 years before the first one in Dublin.

Never was the word nerd used...just sayin'.

I will share that I enjoyed the "Irish" movie display at Wal-Mart which included a number of Loch Ness Monster movies as well as Craig Ferguson stand up specials, both of which are Scottish, which is not Irish...just sayin'.
