Hello everyone, we had a pretty dreary day and it was misty and wet. But it didn\'t matter today as we cleared our living room and tore the old wallpaper off. Ohhhhhh, how I love it. But why couldn\'t that be the last work when you renovate a room? I would rather do the unpleasant work first and save the work that I like to do for the end. Could someone, PLEASE, invent such a method for me? Thanks.

Now I\'m sitting in the kitchen. I can\'t see the bare walls in the living room and it\'s cosy and warm here in the kitchen. Franka and Robert are out with friends for a concert and Mr A is already in bed. He had to carry some furniture out of the room... and was tired... Men are sissies sometimes. hehehehe

We\'ve got a Civil War re-enactment here tomorrow, the Battle of Natural Bridge. I may go tomorrow. It re-enacts the battle that made Tallahassee the only Southern capital west of the Mississippi that wasn\'t captured by Yankees during the war, and the battle is famous because it was fought and won by local schoolboys and old men, as everybody else was off fighting Yankees elsewhere. It\'s only 20 minutes from here, and a great and educational reenactment.

Y\'all have a nice weekend.

Yo, Mr. Mies. I almost tripped on you, there.

I know what you are talking about, business is slow here, too, and I think it might get worse before it gets better. It\'s hard for us to get our minds around it, we haven\'t had enough really bad times in our lifetimes to understand it, but we may as well learn to deal with it, count what blessings we still have and ride it out. I just hope it doesn\'t last long. At least, it seems to be shaking out some bad practices that have been going on too long, and maybe the country will be better on the other side of it. We don\'t need greedy banks and oil companies.

See ya.

We have the Great Western Sportfishing Show here this weekend. I\'m introducing the speakers for Lunker Landing, the warmwater fishing seminars. We are having speakers every hour on walleye, bass, pike, tiger musky, & catfish. It\'s a good thing I wasn\'t on the schedule, after being skunked last weekend, no one would have listened to me.

I\'ve fished Rufus Woods since the mid 1980\'s & last weekend is the first time I never caught 1 walleye. The last 4 Freezeouts I\'ve caught at least 1 fish over 5# & several ove 7#.

Lordy, that\'s a pretty awful looking old truck on CAM 5, Webbie. I\'ll bet it could tell some scary stories if it could talk.

I see the sun is shining down the canyon at Talbot and Gardiner, and hitting the front of O\'Shea\'s. Did you Irish have a nice day all day? Hope so, everybody deserves a few.

I haven\'t done a thing except sit around and drink coffee all morning, but now I have to get to work. Y\'all have a nice weekend.

Good Morning.

Another cold morning in Spokane. 30F here & breezy, but no snow. I\'m hoping that we are done with that for this spring. We\'ve had some snow of & on the last week but it isn\'t sticking.

I\'m here at work doing nothing, much like what I\'ve done the last 3 weeks. I\'ve never seen it this slow, if it wasn\'t for farmers getting ready to get in the fields we wouldn\'t be doing anything. It\'s very scary, this is the slowest I\'ve seen in 35 years.

Mornin\'...

Micilin, you seem quite exhuberant today. I am guessing that things went well for you this week.

Nice shot on CAM 5, Eamon. I\'d like to go down that road, too. The clouds hanging over the mountain that way are beautiful. Thanks for sharing that view.

It\'s warm and sunny here today, if it doesn\'t rain, I am going to do some heavy duty gardening in the next few days. I\'m off to town later today to buy some new plants. I hope everybody who has had a cold winter is seeing some signs of Spring, and that you all have a nice weekend.

Take Care.

Wow, you always can learn something new about plants. I will have to add the petunia shamrock or petuniatus seamrogius to my book of plants. That\'s incredible. You always think all the plants are already known. And that means I have a petunia shamrock (with pink AND white flowers) in a pot in the house that I bought for the last New Year\'s Eve and I have the clover (with white flowers in summer) in my garden. The bees and bumblebees like the flowers. And I like them, too.

...and I like the picture on the Cam.

...and Liz, I wish you a nice time with your son and family.

...and I\'m gone.

Hello all...

Oh Treasa, you have given us all equally as much pleasure as you received...We love you too...

Annette, so glad you like the Huckleberry tea, It\'s one of Mr. M\'s favorites too....

SOOOOOO, the Shamrock plants that are sold in the stores are real or fake??? They seem to be more on the larger size and have blooming small white flowers...Have we been scammed all these years by greedy profiteers trying to take advantage around St Patrick\'s Day?...My oh my!!!

Hey guys,

If it\'s onc thing that puts the smile on a person\'s face, it is reading this GB. Thanks Patricia and Webbie and Jim for all the shamrock info. But it\'s Webbies comments that make me smile...

I never thought I would see \'Junkets\' so eloquently protrayed and \'have to be\' done. Thanks Webbie for making us realise that all that money has to be spent in keeping with St. Patrick\'s wishes. Where are they all off to this year?? Have you any idea??? Anywhere, I suppose to get away from the mess they have left us in...

Anyway, hi everyone, we are out to dinner with friends this evening. It\'s \'French cuisine theme\' in the restaurant we are going to.

Almost feel guilty for going out to eat!!!!

Anyway, catch you all later.
Patricia

Hi, Jim. Thanks for the shamrock info, and thank you too, Webbie. Basically, to recap all that, nobody knows exactly what the true shamrock is, as St. Patrick did not record what he was using to illustrate his story. The liklihood, because of where he was located at the time, and the plant that most Irish in the late 1800s considered to be the shamrock, is that it was Trifolium repens, a small white clover. So, it does flower later in the year after St. Patrick\'s Day, and likely could have a mutation that would cause a 4 leafed shamrock.

Continued...

Cont.

I\'m willing to go along with what the majority of the Irish say it is, and to accept the runners-up in that study as well, which were 2 other clovers and wood sorrel, which is an oxalis. The advantage of the oxalis is that it can be grown as a house plant, which is then known as a petunia shamrock (isn\'t that right, Webbie?) as they all illustrate St. Patrick\'s story, which was the point of the whole thing, anyway.

Gawd, this is an educational GB.

  
Webmaster-Comment: I totally agree. You are now getting the hang of it. Just to add a little further information on this subject, St Patrick never forgave the snakes for creating the propogation of the petuniatus seamrogius and thus he ordained that all snakes should be banished forthwith from Ireland. That is the legacy he left us. And so he also ruled that only shamrock with roots and clay detached be allowed into other countries for his feast day. To this end our members of parliament and county councillors spread far and wide throughout the world on St Patricks day to ensure that St Patricks instructions are complied with.

Good morning, everyone. I wasn\'t on here the last days as Franka is still here and keeps me busy. We have to chat so much and do some \'mother-daughter-things\' together. Now I see that I have to catch up a lot of posts since last Sunday. And I must hurry as we want to renovate our living room and will start next Saturday. I already clearded nearly all of the boards and cabinets and they will go out tomorrow, too.

Mies, I\'m just having a wild huckleberry tea with my second breakfast.

I was up very early this morning and in the morning I need a lot of coffee but can\'t eat anything. But now, after I have finished my first work, I\'m hungry as a hunter.... hmmmmmm ...this saying in German is \'hungry as a wolf\' literally translated. Who is more hungry? The hunter or the wolf? Anyway, I\'m out here. I\'ll have to raid the fridge...

Good morning all. Recently, I did a DNA report on myself. Two of my major DNA factors came from the Philippines. It may have come into my Irish family during the time the Spanish fleet sailed into Galway.
