Happy Saint Patrick's Day. Experienced my first unwanted sign of spring today--a blaring car radio. But it was a beautiful day and everyone was in a happy mood. And we all were wearing green, of course . . . People at the State Street cathedral honored their patron with a nice memorial. Angela Lawson provided this picture . . . I sat in the sun trying to absorb some Vitamin D to please my doctor, but after a bit I sneaked inside to watch some of the big parade in Dublin. You can watch it too at some point during the next few day at this site: http://www.rte.ie/player/#v=1068835 . . . The tape lasts an hour . . . Harrisburg's parade is Saturday at 2 p.m. The weather is supposed to be great. All of our local politicians seem to be out of favor with the public these days, so it will be interesting to see if Thompson, Buxton or Holden are in the line of march . . .
