Top o’ the mornin’ to you this March 17th St. Patrick’s Day!!
“For each petal on the shamrock this brings a wish your way- good health, good luck and happiness for today and every day.”
“Like the gold of the sun, like the light of the day, may the luck of the Irish shine bright on your way. Like the glow of a star, and the lilt of a song may these be your joys all your life long.”
A Swiss man, on holiday in Dublin, needed directions. He was standing outside Davy Byrne’s pub when he saw two youths walking by so he stops them and asks, ‘Entschuldigung, koennen Sie Deutsch sprechen?’
The two lads look at each other blankly and stare back at him.
‘Excusez-moi, parlez vous Français?’ He tries.
The two continue to stare.
‘Parlare Italiano?’ Still absolutely no response from the two lads.
‘Hablan ustedes Espanol?’ The Dublin lads remain totally silent.
The Swiss guy walks off extremely disappointed and downhearted that he had not been understood. One of the boys turns to the second and says, ‘Y’know, maybe we should learn a foreign language!’
”Why?’ says the youth, ‘That guy knew four languages, and it didn’t do him any good!’
The 30th anniversary of the popular and acclaimed TED conferences gets underway in Vancouver today. A fascinating array of speakers will grace our city in the Monday-Friday event at our downtown convention centre.
Cheers to talk—Technology, Entertainment & Design!!!!
Whatever is up for your 3rd Monday of March, may the lore of the leprechaun hint of pots of gold at the end of the rainbow!
Seek out an Irish person today, generally speaking–they can be great storytellers!!!
Life’s a great story!
