Shamrock of Ireland (Heraldry)

This is just a quick blog  to say to  everyone in Ireland, especially my family

“Happy St Patricks Day!”

Why did St Patrick drive the snakes out of Ireland?

Because he couldn`t afford the plane ticket!

May your blessings out number the shamrocks that grow,

And may trouble avoid you wherever you go.

Emblem-shamrockHow is a best friend like a 4-leaf clover? They are hard to find and lucky to have.

No, I`m not Irish, but I lived in the Republic for  eight years-

from 1995  to 2003. and many members of my family (not pictured above, right!) still live there.

So, are we ready for the offensive Irish joke?

Yes, of course we are!

Rainbow Leprechaun

Why wasn’t Jesus born in Ireland?

He couldn’t find 3 wise men or a virgin!! (Ha Ha)

But, seriously ..

May God give you…
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.

PS:  On Second Life`s London Sims there is a “Best in Irish” event at 2pm SLT.

It will be held at London Tube and there`ll be a thousand Lindens up for grabs!
