Slainte Mhath!


Happy St. Patrick’s Day

‘Then Mickey Maloney ducked his head
When a noggin of whiskey flew at him,
It missed, and falling on the bed
The liquor scattered over Tim!
The corpse revives! See how he raises!
Timothy rising from the bed,
Says,”Whirl your whiskey around like blazes
Thanum an Dhul! Do you thunk I’m dead?” (Finnegan’s Wake — The Clancy Brothers)

Alternately, my favorite Irish song (though less uplifting) The Foggy Dew. (also as a midi file)

Of course, It's snowing like Hell here.

Ah, well.

Slainte Mhath!
