I'm at the Jersey Shore this weekend not far from the Spring Lake region that is known as The Irish Riviera. We actually went swimming in the ocean yesterday. Cold, but not as bad as you might think. The only real pain was experienced by the toes, which I thought might come off. All ten pigs are still attached and wiggiling just fine. Happy St. Patrick's Day.
One other quick aside. A friend of mine used to own his own business. One of his employees was a sweet guy but his use of the english language was a bit challenged. One night my friend phoned into the office to see how an overnight job was progressing. The employee on the other end of the phone replied "The whole place is in Shamrocks!!!". The word we believe he meant to use was "shambles".
