You get pinched - hard! if you don't wear green. I always say I'm wearing green underpants.

I'm hoping he is over that fascination by now! lol. I doubt he will get close enough to any 'sea life', this is his first tour on ship and he is actually suffering a little bit of sea sickness! LOL, navy and seasick!! poor baby

Be careful... people who dress in green tend to have a proclivity for blowing things up. Keep an eye on the lad.




Yes. I went there.

Correct.... though I prefer to be androgynous.

I am wearing a shade of green that isn't what we call "kelly green" but is rather a vapid shade of pale blue-green. Nevertheless I don't think I'll be pinched by my officemates.

I'm not worried about the shade of green ......... more the fact that you wear underpants

What I dont get is that the Americans got so much more from the English /British than ever they did from the Irish - so why no St George's day Parades ?

America got it's language and law and culture (er -hum) from England/Britain and even the 13 stripes on the flag represent the British colonies ( a lot of sites call them the 'American colonies')

St Patrick's day either celebrates Irish nationalism or catholicism and that's fine for either of those groups , but why foist it on the world ? Irish nationalism this week means the murder of two young British soldiers who were in civvies and buying a pizza, and the murder of an Northern Irish policeman who was due to retire soon. Not a good week to raise my glass to Irish nationalism.

Anyway it's only one day but I am staying in. My motorcycle group invited me to decorate my bike green and ride in the parade. When I stated my reasons for not wanting to, they removed my post. Free speech indeed.

How come the Irish can parade up and down with Irish flags drums and bagpipes and everything written in gaelic, but the English are told to become 100% American or go home ?
