The carpenter at at the job site today asked me why I wasn't wearing green. I told him that I'd sent in my DNA sample to 23andme for analysis and it turns out I have more Nigerian ancestry (very, very little) than Irish (none at all).

And I was wearing my kente cloth mask.

Looking at your avatar I can definitely see way more Nigerian than Irish.

CB thinks that SPD is the worst holiday, culinarily-speaking - what with all of the boiled meats, potatoes, cabbage, and such. Personally, I like a good corned beef and cabbage dinner, but whatevs.

Yesterday, I made corned beef hash (which only I ate) and scrambled eggs for breakfast with a few pieces of Kerrygold Dubliner and a wedge of soda bread. He was OK with that. I had a Marie Callender's Shepherd's Pie for lunch (not exactly authentic, but also minimal effort!). And for snack last night, we had Haagen-Dazs ice cream from their "spirits" product line - Irish Cream Brownie ice cream.

We both wore green shirts.

That was the extent of our celebrating.
I used to make a bigger impression.

It’s a reasonable assumption.

I may or may not have an apostrophe in my name so that's a free pass for all things SPD in my book.

Grandpa Liam left his apostrophe on Ellis Island. The O, too.

Blasphemy! Boiled meats are the business. :drool:

I made a 5 lb corned beef in the crockpot yesterday (along with carrots, turnips and cabbage). It disappeared.

We're much more German than Irish (Fourstring's family is a little Irish; mine not at all), but you can't help but get into the spirit of things when you live in Chicago.

Fourstring was pretty depressed that for the 2nd year in a row, his Irish band had no gigs at all. Here's hoping for lots of gigging next year.

Sometimes I think he's a pod person.  :lol:  His views on what constitutes good food is one of those times.

There's a corned beef dinner at a local church on Saturday (take-out only, of course)...I'm seriously considering telling him he's on his own for dinner that day!

had a couple pints of Guinness, one for me and one for my late ex-father in law. From when we met to when he died he sent me a St. Patty's day card every year with a $20 to "go have a couple pints for the cause" .  R.I.P. Patrick McColloch.

I have an apostrophe in my name, however computerized financial systems and the U.S. government are doing everything possible to eliminate it.   visitors can't see pics , please register or login

My grandad Jack Murphy was from County Wicklow, he married my nan a Welshie named Myfanwy Jones and lived an incredible life as a sailor and later "guest" of the Germans.

I always hoist a few in his honor and for my auntie Mary from Cork, and enjoy a bowl of corned beef, neeps and tatties a few times a year to be honest but definitely for Paddy's day.

Yeah, it's the bane of my existence at every place that tries to look up my account or history.  And my wife hyphenated her last name so she has a dash and an apostrophe.  Persona non grata

When Foursting and I got married, I debated keeping my last name or changing it. Fourstring said, "Do what you want. I don't care. Just don't hyphenate it because Geppert-Britsch is too much German for one last name."

I kept the Geppert, BTW. My MIL occasionally teaches college-level accounting classes. She tells her students that they're not allowed to call her Mrs. Bitch behind her back until after the first exam.
