Happy St. Patrick's Day even if you aren't Irish. I happen to have some Irish blood, from my father's side. His family background is English, Irish, Scottish and a bit of Native American.
I always looked forward to corned beef and cabbage on St Paddy's day, but can't eat that anymore because of the enormous salt content. One bite of corned beef is like eating a couple teaspoons of salt. But it's soooo tasty and I really miss having it.
They dyed the Chicago River green again, as they do each year. I watch it on television and a bit of the parade down State Street, but have never gone down to watch them dye the river green. Maybe next year, when I can walk.
Here is a video of the river being dyed green in Chicago.
