A Day for the Green

A few years back, I stopped posting St. Patricks’ Day videos with the cats.  I’m not Catholic or Irish and in retrospect didn’t think it was funny to promote commercialized, bastardized religious stereotypes. A commentary on CBS Sunday Morning two years ago by Boston Globe columnist Kevin Cullen was key in my decision.  However, Mr. Cullen also mentions his Aunt, who welcomed strangers into her home for the holiday.  This gesture was as much the loving spirit of this woman’s soul as much as it was showing her pride in being Irish, giving credence to the saying that everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day.


 I stopped posting Jib Jab video of the cats on St. Pat’s because most were promoting that being Irish was about being drunk.  However this morning I thought it appropriate to post this link to their St. Pat’s video that I believe depicts well the “Everyone’s Irish on St. Paddy’s Day” sentiment.

Getting to Know Me

Hey Ma, what cha doing?

This post is my first using my new computer and software.  It will take some practice to get it right, but I am sure I'll get the hang of it. At the moment. I am loading applications and letting the kidz get used to the new, strange contraption.

Our post will still be intermittent as I learn more and adjust to the new technology.  I have to type with a voiceover setting and listen to myself as oppose to reading as I type.  It will take some practice. So far, I am doing well with it.

I will talk more about the technology in greater detail later. I just wanted to let you know that we are fine and thank you for your support
