May Your Blessings Outnumber

The shamrocks that grow.
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.

Saint Patrick's Day Toasts

May your fire be as warm as the weather is cold.

As you slide down the banisters of life may the splinters never point the wrong way.

May you get all your wishes but one,
So you always have something to strive for.

May your neighbors respect you,
Troubles neglect you,
The angels protect you,

And Heaven accept you

May the best day of your past be the worst day of your future.

An old Irish recipe for longevity:
Leave the table hungry. Leave the bed sleepy. Leave the bar thirsty.

May you have the hindsight to know where you've been,
The insight to know where you are,
and the foresight to know when you've gone too far.

May you have warm words on a cold evening,
A full moon on a dark night,
And the road downhill all the way to your door.

May God bring good health to your enemies enemies.

Irish Coffee or Tea

Brew a strong cup of your favorite coffee or tea and instead of adding cream and sugar to your cup, add a half jigger (about 1/2 ounce) of Bailey's Irish Cream. It's smooth and tasty. Sip, don't gulp. Enjoy the flavor of Ireland...even if you're not Irish.

Oh yum! I used to go to a beautician who swore by hot chocolate made with half milk & half baileys.
