Go n-eírí an bóthar leat.

May the road rise with you.

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I found several wonderful Irish blessings here today:

We watched Patriot Games on Saturday (sans kids), and watched Riverdance this morning. We tried in vain to find a copy of The Quiet Man, but nobody carries it anymore! What's the deal with that? It's one of the most classic Irish movies to watch on St. Patrick's Day, IMO! We ordered from Amazon but won't get it until Friday.

A funny side note: The kids won't watch Darby O'Gill and the Little People, because the Banshee scares them. I think it's fun to see Sean Connery early in his career!

We're planning to have Corned Beef and Cabbage and Irish soda bread (sans caraway) for dinner tonight. Caileigh has been taking Irish dance from McTeggart Irish Dance studio ( for a few months now, but wasn't quite ready to march in the St. Patrick's parade in Denver on Saturday with her troupe.

May your day be touched
by a bit of Irish luck,
brightened by a song in your heart,
and warmed by the smiles
of the people you love.
