HAAPPY SAAINT PAATRICK’S DAAY!

HAAPPY SAAINT PAATRICK’S DAAY!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! MARCH 17th is always St. Patrick’s Day!

“Wherever you go and whatever you do,
May the luck of the Irish be there with you.”

darby-king-brian-2

“Here’s to being single… Drinking doubles… And seeing triple!”

First, a very important message for all my Friends:
PLEASE 
DRINK RESPONSIBLY!
GET HOME ALIVE, DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE!
“KNOW WHEN TO SAY WHEN!”
“FRIENDS DON’T LET FRIENDS DRIVE DRUNK!”

“May the rocks in your field turn to gold.”

Saint Patrick’s Day is a cultural and religious holiday celebration held on March 17, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick (385–461), the patron saint of Ireland.

irish-flag

“May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rains fall soft upon your fields.”

Saint Patrick’s Day was made an official Christian feast holy day in the early 17th century and is celebrated in more countries than any other national festival!

“May the leprechauns be near you, 
To spread luck along your way. 
And may all the Irish angels, 
Smile upon your St. Patrick’s Day.”

shamrock-irish-dance-clipart-cliparthut-free-clipart-VyiX8l-clipart

“Here’s to a sweetheart, a bottle, and a friend. 
The first beautiful, the second full, the last ever faithful.”

“To all the days here and after 
May they be filled with fond memories, happiness, love and laughter.”

Historically, religious restrictions (due to Lent) on eating and drinking alcohol were lifted for Saint Patrick’s Day, which led the holiday’s tradition of alcohol consumption.

Holiday celebrations involve going to church, public parades & festivals, parties known as cèilidhs, consumption of alcohol, drinking green beer and/or Irish whiskey with friends, prominent displays and “the wearing of the green” and/or shamrocks (three and four leaf clovers).

“May you taste the sweetest pleasures that fortune ere bestowed, 
and may all your friends remember all the favors you are owed.”

10427222_913586882001212_2071684294545506778_n

“May the hinges of our friendship never grow rusty.”

“Four blessings upon you… 
Older whiskey, Younger women, Faster horses, More money”

Fresh beer

“It is better to spend money like there’s no tomorrow
than to spend tonight like there’s no money!”

Saint Patrick’s Day has become an International Holiday with parades and celebrations around the world. They get drunk in Tokyo, Japan too!

“May your mornings bring joy
and your evenings bring peace…
May your troubles grow less
as your blessings increase!”

We like Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

“I have known many and liked not a few,
I’ve loved only one and this toast’s to you.”

“Best while you have use of your breath 
There is no drinking after death!”

“May the winds of fortune sail you, May you sail a gentle sea. 
May it always be the other guy who says ‘this drink’s on me’.”

“A bird with one wing can’t fly.” (So have another drink!)

The Notre Dame Leprechaun is the official mascot of the Fighting Irish sports club at the University of Notre Dame since 1965. It was designed by artist Theodore W. Drake for $50 in 1964.

The Fighting Irish logo is a side view of The Leprechaun with his fists up, ready to fight. The live version is a student dressed in a cutaway green suit and Irish country hat. He carries a shillelagh (a wooden club), leads cheers, interacts with the crowd and supposedly brings magical powers and good luck to the team. (“RUDY! RUDY! RUDY!”)

“Who’s the WILDMAN now?”

“May the luck of the Irish 
Lead to the happiest heights 
And the highway you travel 
Be lined with green lights.”

“May the Four Winds Blow Them Safely Home”

“Merry met, and merry part, 
I drink to thee with all my heart.”

March 2017!

“March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.” – Thomas Fuller, 1732

March is the third month of the year.
The name comes from Mars, the Roman G-d of War.

Astrologically speaking, in March,
Leo (the Lion) is the rising zodiac sign and by April, it’s Aries (the Goat).

12801377_1326055424087687_3426608033148370077_n

The saying is simply an observation of the common seasonal pattern: March is the transition between winter and summer, usually starting with stormy weather and becoming mild later.

MARCH (verb or noun): walk in a military manner with a regular measured tread
synonyms: walk, hike, trek, tramp, slog, troop, stride, step, pace, tread, trudge, tromp, parade, file, process (see our previous Blog “The Company-of-Foote”)

Mario V. RIP

Rest in Peace Mario.
He danced at my wedding! He was the Life of the Party and so full of life. I love this pic! He wasn’t afraid to be “that guy” and he always had a good time and made sure the people around him did too. He loved to make people laugh! Always a joke, or a story, or a “Don Rickles” insult to make someone smile.
And Mario and Virginia were always there for their friends for as long as I’ve known them (35 years). My deepest condolences to the whole family.
May the Four Winds blow him safely home.

Obituary of Mario Veneroso (with just a little editing)
Mario Louis Veneroso (1958 – 2017) of Simi Valley, beloved husband, father, brother, friend and mentor to so many, has gone on to eternal rest. Originally from Garden Grove, California, Mario was a skilled engineer, photographer, scuba diver and trail-blazer. He loved good scotch and to be in nature, especially Yosemite. He was generous with all he had (especially humor) and his advice was sought and valued by those who knew him. He has gone to join his mother and father, Mary and Mario, and his brother, Matthew. He is survived by his wife, Virginia, his children, Christina, Nicholas, and Teresa, and his siblings, Michele, Marc, and Martin. Funeral services are on Friday, March 10th. If you cannot join, please feel free to raise a glass in his honor.

Mario, Virginia, Steve, Al & Peter at KJ’s New Years Eve Party 2017

NOTE: We had a really good time at New Years Party and it was great to see everyone, having a “last chance” with an old friend (without knowing it) makes it seem bittersweet. And then he blocked me on facebook because of politics (he was a Trump supporter) which is “just like Mario”…….  two old friends in two weeks, tell them you love them now.

Leprecauns are Irish fairies usually seen as little red-bearded men, wearing green coats and hats, who enjoy practical jokes and mischief. They are solitary creatures who make and mend shoes and have a hidden pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. If captured, they often grant three wishes in exchange for their freedom.

Have a Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Don’t Be This Guy:

And don’t forget “March Madness”, that college basketball thing with the brackets, and betting and office pools, and it’s a DISTRACTION from really important things that matter!

Don’t get me started on college athletic programs and the money involved!
DON’T WATCH! DON’T SUPPORT COLLEGE SPORTS PROGRAMS THAT GENERATE MONEY FOR SCHOOLS AND COACHES AND NOT STUDENTS.
DON’T SUPPORT COLLEGE SPORTS PROGRAMS THAT PUT ATHLETICS OVER EDUCATION OR VIOLATE THE RULES AND/OR ETHICS OF SPORTSMANSHIP!
DON’T SUPPORT COLLEGE SPORTS PROGRAMS THAT CONCEAL AND/OR COVER-UP CRIMES BY COLLEGES, PLAYERS AND/OR COACHES!
(And that’s all I’m going to say about that, for now)

Today is the 70th Anniversary of D-Day! (and it’s also National Donut Day)

The 70th Anniversary of D-Day! Normandy, France – June 6, 1944

d_dayimage1

It’s D-Day! Today is the 70th Anniversary of the Invasion of Normandy!

order-of-the-day

Operation Overlord was the name assigned to the invasion of the Continent. The Normandy landing was the first phase, codenamed Operation Neptune, and the amphibious attack was the largest seaborne invasion in history. The operation began the Allied invasion of German-occupied western Europe, the establishment of a beachhead on the European continent, and it eventually led to the defeat of Nazi Germany and the end of World War II.

D-Day! Omaha Beach – June 6th, 1944 – View from inside a landing craft.

USA! The United States of America!

USA! The United States of America!

At Omaha Beach, part of the Mulberry Harbour B is still visible in the sea at Arromanches, a few beach obstacles remain, and the Longues-sur-Mer battery is nearby. A memorial to the American National Guard sits at the location of a former German strongpoint. Pointe du Hoc is little changed from 1944, with the terrain covered with bomb craters and most of the concrete bunkers still in place. The Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial is in Colleville-sur-Mer. Museums are located at Sainte-Marie-du-Mont, and Sainte-Mère-Église. Two German military cemeteries are also located nearby. The Juno Beach Centre, opened in 2003, was funded by the Canadian federal and provincial governments, France, and Canadian veterans. Pegasus Bridge, a target of the British 6th Airborne, was the site of some of the earliest action of the Normandy landings. The bridge was replaced in 1994 by one similar in appearance, and the original is now housed on the grounds of a nearby museum complex.
