Finally! An All-Inclusive Holiday!

                                     EVERYONE'S IRISH ON ST. PATRICK'S DAY!

We toured Ireland from Dublin to Shannon in 2006 and prior to the trip friends were waxing nostalgic about the "craic" pronounced "crack."  I said, "Anyone who tries to get me to take drugs is going to be very sorry they did!"

When they quit laughing at me, they explained that craic merely means "fun" or a good time or merriment (all three taking place in a pub of which there are quite a few.)  

Craic translates easily to America, so have at it!  Erin Go Braless! 

THIS JUST IN -  from our Texas correspondent

May your horse never stumble
Your spurs never rust
May your guts never rumble
Your cinch never bust
May your boots never pinch
Your crops never fail
While you eat lots of beans
And stay out of jail
