Today is the day where everyone is Irish – or seeks to be Irish.  And, I suppose, that tomorrow is that day when everyone is hung over.  So I thought that I would celebrate the occasion today on Haiti and Skill with the quintessential Saint Patrick’s Day image.  Every year on Saint Patrick’s Day in Chicago, they dye the Chicago river green.  Have you ever wondered who the proverbial “They” actually are?  Hmm!  Anyway I found on the Wikipedia Commons this absolutely beautiful photograph of the festivities in 2009.  The photograph is by Mike Boehmer from Chicago, IL,  and is spectacular and, well, gloriously green.  So let me wish everyone “Éirinn go Brach”
