Happy St. Paddy's to all! Have a great green day and I hope the weather cooperates everywhere. Neal has already planned his after work celebrations and he's proudly marching with the Montreal GAA in the parade next Sunday. I will try to keep up...

Many Happy Days to all....is best day of year for making wear of green speedo!!!!!

In Beeristani Wikispeedia, is many reference to patron saint of green speedo, St. Patrick. Is little known fact that St Patrick was really native of Beeristan (old Beeristan, not new Beeristan). Early childhood was filled with many feats of miracles, such as driving the earthworms out of grandmothers house, freeing the Capitol of plague of walking sticks, and most famous feat of all, invention of very dark beer. Is said one day that Pat was busy brewing for weekend when, distracted by geography teacher constantly talking (craic) about some Emerald Isle in far far away-land, he made overcook the wort. Disappointed in very dark beer, Pat fled sacred homeland and traveled many days and many nights to fabled "Emerald Isle", where he found native peoples wearing sheep clothing and drinking Watneys. Pat made introduce very dark beer to peoples, and there was cheering. And sheep were made to wear speedos.

Is also little known fact that the word "Guinness" means "wort overcooked by distracted individual". Please come to Beeristan (new, not old) for more amazing facts of history.

HAPPY ST. PADDY'S DAY EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And Arif - St Patrick is a Patron Saint of Ireland and one of the earliest Christian missionaries. He is credited with ridding Ireland of the snakes. The "snakes" are supposedly a reference to the Druids (paganism), rather than real snakes as there is little evidence that Ireland had real (slithering snakes) after the glaciers receded. He lived approximately between AD 387 & AD 461.

St Patrick was also a Brit, a Brythionic Celt of course as all Britons were then, back in the day before England and Scotland existed.
