Happy Saint Patrick's Day to all my Irish readers. Saint Patrick is the most commonly recognized of the patron saints of Ireland. Today is all about celebrating Irish people and culture. Having lived in New York for so long, I've seen the Irish bars serve "green beer", and I've also seen my share of parades. I'd just like to dispense some friendly advice to those of you planning on "celebrating" today's holiday. First of all, if you're going to consume alcoholic beverages, try to stay within your reasonable limits. Don't be drinking more than you can handle on Saint Patrick's account-- I'm sure that if St. Patty is in fact watching over you today, he doesn't want to see you with your head stuck in the porcelain throne, gettin' severely sick from drinking too much. Just as I'm sure he doesn't want to see you get drunk, and then get behind the wheel and wrap your car around a telephone pole-- Please exercise some discretion if you're gonna celebrate the day with alcohol, because the patron saint can't possibly be looking out for ALL the drunks today-- That's too tall an order even for a saint!! Enjoy Saint Patrick's Day and party responsibly... Switching gears... Today is NHRA Chassis Certification at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englishtown, New Jersey. It's a rain or shine affair. For those of my northeastern racer readers in need of chassis certification, today is your day at E'Town. As I look out my window this morning, it appears that "Mother Nature" is being rather kind, so it's certainly a nice day to bring your ride to Raceway Park and get this necessary deed done if you are required to. For more information visit E'Town's web site by clicking on this link... http://www.etownraceway.com/
Being that today is officially Saint Patrick's Day, I figured that I'd post a pic of my late mother-in-law. She had plenty of Irish heart. We all miss her dearly 'round here... I encourage all my Irish friends and readers to please enjoy St. Patty's Day responsibly...
