Default Just for fun: Irish folklore

Irish folklore has it (and all small Irish children know it be true) that if you catch a leprechaun and if you're smart enough, you can get him to tell you where he's hidden his pot of gold. Well, I 'captured' this little fellow in my garden but he's not yet said any word about gold.

Anyway, today being the 17th of March may I wish each and everyone one of us a
HAPPY ST PATRICK'S DAY - 'Here's to a long life and a merry one. Slainte!'

Thanks Torgny. Yes, the general Irish citizenry have a presence and a way of looking at the world that is quite delightful.
