Happy St. Patty's!

I'm on a business trip a few hundred miles from home, but thought I'd stop in and wish a Happy St. Patrick's Day to all the fine folks who stop by and take in the blog from time to time.


This time last year I was in New York, drinking too much Guinness and being overwhelmed by the ridiculous number of people who take to the streets for the parade. It's such a minor holiday in Southern California, so it was quite the shock to see how the 'other' coast lives...


Admittedly, I don't have a whole lot to say, but since I'm a good portion Irish, and tend to celebrate the music of the Emerald Isle, felt I shouldn't let the day pass without comment...


Here's a click from the rock doc 'Out of Ireland'




Oh, I'd also like a bit of commiseration... Here is how my hotel chose to commemorate this fine holiday...

That is all... Return to your lives...

The hotel's choice of a specialized Greek dish is just bizarro. If you to all of that trouble, why not just serve bangers and mash or corned beef?

I really like The Blades but you can't find their music now. I had an import tape, but it has probably been destroyed in the box in the garage. I guess you can buy it from their record label, still, though:
