      Hard to pick my favorite totally authentic and traditional holiday. Erin Go Bud? Cinco de Miller?

    New Mexico cyclists, bend over, ‘cuz here it comes again. HB 192, the five foot passing bill, was amended at the last minute to include a sidepath bicycling requirement.

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      Well, goddamnit, that’s disappointing. I’d have settled for three feet and no sidepath requirement. But that’s just me being me again. Good on Jennifer for urging the veto.

    Well I swilled me some Guinness, tucked into a corned beef samich and wore a green jacket to go pick up the victuals. So I did my part for St. Paddy’s Day. Snowing (again) so bikes will remain holstered. But once a nap is achieved there could be a session on the (shudder) wind trainer.

    Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all. Listening to The Thistle and Shamrock radio program ( Fiona Ritchie’s site) on my local NPR station.

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      They used to have a huge Celtic deal on weekends at KRCC in Bibleburg, and Fiona Ritchie’s “Thistle and Shamrock” was part of it.

      For some reason I decided that it would be amusing to do a imitation of her that sounded like Monty Python’s Pepperpots (“Death of Mary Queen of Scots,” etc) but in an hideous Irish accent.

      “O, ’tis Fiona Feckin’ Ritchie comin’ at ye wi’ th’ ‘T’istle an’ Shamrock,’ ye feckers,” etc.

      Well, I found it amusing, anyway. Idle hands are truly the devil’s playground. And so are idle vocal cords.

    Well, we made a lasagna. One whole layer is green.

  7. Pat O'Brien Says:

    Our Irish pot luck dinner and party is over. I am at home. So…

  8. khal spencer Says:

    Well, yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day. Today woulda been my mom’s 93rd birthday. We will celebrate with a second round of the lasagna and a chianti.

    Hmm, the Ides of March have come and gone and my wish for Fat Nixon to end up like that other dictator didn’t happen. So IMPEACH the Mofo already! Tuesday night I’m outta here!
