St. Patrick’s Day.  A holiday named after my son.  Best. Day. Ever!  So today’s blog is all things Irish.  Like me.  Speaking of me, I got engaged on St. Patrick’s Day, 26 years ago.  At the Dubliner Pub in Washington, DC, wearing a pith helmet.  Just news you can’t use.

How To Make Irish Coffee — Irish Coffee Recipe Ingredients: 1-1/2 oz Irish whiskey, 1 tsp brown sugar, 6 oz hot coffee, whipped cream. Directions: Combine whiskey, sugar and coffee in a mug and stir to dissolve. Float cold whipped cream gently on top. Do not mix. As an added treat you can drizzle some Crème de Menthe over the whipped cream.

The Irish Coffee was “invented” at the Buena Vista in San Francisco.  I have had many, many irish coffees there and highly recommend it!

I love this song, but I don’t want to use it, nor any Irish song, for my song of the day, so I’m listing the lyrics to this famous Irish song, so I can pick my own song of the day.   DressedtoaT.

Quick Fact:  How many pints of Guinness are consumed everyday?  $10 million.  That’s a whole lotta Guinness!

While I may angle more towards Stella in terms of beer, I have to say, Guinness is much lighter than it looks.  I actually thought I had a picture of me, enjoying my first Guinness, with my friend, Jason, a few years ago, at the scene of the crime, I mean, at the Dubliner Pub…just a few days before St. Patrick’s Day, however, it appears I started to enjoy Stella, in my Guinness glass.  The good news here is I did have my first Guinness.  More good news is it appears I had a second beer.  Cheers. 🙂

#ManHands  I’m thinking this is a very bad angle, speaking of angles!

So I go to the mailbox this week and in it is a CD, called, “Surprise…Girlfriend’s Mix”.  Thanks Dr. Stevie!  Love it..And you!

Song of the Day:  Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, by Marvin Gaye

My love is alive
Way down in my heart
Although we are miles apart
If you ever need a helping hand,
I’ll be there on the double
Just as fast as I can
Don’t you know that there
Ain’t no mountain high enough,
Ain’t no valley low enough,
Ain’t no river wide enough
To keep me from getting to you babe

This is very, very similar to what I will be wearing for St. Patrick’s day…less the nude high heel pumps.  I will be wearing nude gladiator sandals, instead.

A tad much.

Kinda perfect.

I am not posting suggestions for men, because they can get away with a Green jacket, shirt, polo, t-shirt, tie or hat.
