Raise your glasses...

To all of you who genuinely are 100% pure-bred, pedigree Irish, to those who are part Irish, to those who claim to be Irish, and to those who are honest enough to admit that they aren't Irish at all, but have an appreciation for the finer things in life, may you have a happy St Patrick's Day.
I expect each one of you to drink a toast to me and my felow countrymen. It is your duty.
And tomorrow I expect updates from everyone as to where and when you enjoyed the (liquid) taste of Ireland.

Happy Paddies Day all - I am now off to the pub, and as nobody else here will join me, I will have to make sure I have one for each of them.

Thanks for inviting me!

Was in Callaghans near the Mad Jet Ski Stadium in Reading - you would boycott it anyway as it is attached to your least favourite hotel chain!
On a different theme, did you get the mail I sent about the dry slope skis? Just wondering as my mail account is doing all sorts of weird and wonderful things at the moment...

Today is also my wife's birthday, so we're on our way out to ski pine trees all day.

Zorro, I will drink several for you, but must stop short of adopting stereotypical Eire-dale drunkenness because I must travel to Helene tomorrow for work.

Oh, and Zorro, before you head out tonight, run around the block about 10 times and maybe do 50 push ups. When you're done, Don't shower- in fact don't even change your clothes- go to the pub just as you are. For explanation please read the article below. Let us know if it works, you stud muffin.

Male perspiration brightens women's moods

REUTERS , March 14, 2003 PHILADELPHIA, – Sweating it out over a big date this weekend? If you're a guy, that could be just the ticket, according to a human biology study released Friday. Biologists at the University of Pennsylvania said they found male perspiration had a surprisingly beneficial effect on women's moods. It helps reduce stress, induces relaxation and even affects the menstrual cycle. "This suggests there may be much more going on in social settings like singles' bars than meets the eye," said Charles Wysocki, an adjunct professor of animal biology at Penn's School of Veterinary Medicine.

In a study to be published in the journal Biology of Reproduction, researchers collected samples from the underarms of men who refrained from using deodorant for four weeks. The extracts were then blended and applied to the upper lips of 18 women, aged 25 to 45. The women rated their moods on a fixed scale for a period of six hours. The findings suggested something in the perspiration brightened their moods and helped them feel less tense.

Blood analyses also showed a rise in levels of the reproductive luteinizing hormone that typically surge before ovulation. Wysocki, a study co-author, said the research could point to a "chemical communication" subtext between the sexes that enables men and women to coordinate their reproductive efforts subliminally.

There was no sign women were sexually aroused by male perspiration. In fact, the women never suspected they had men's sweat under their noses and believed they were helping to test alcohol, perfume or lemon floor wax. "The study was done in quite a sterile environment. It's not strange that they were not thinking sexual thoughts," said Wysocki. "In a more sensual setting, exposure to these odors might facilitate the emergence of sexual mood or feelings."

Funded by the National Institutes of Health, researchers said the study could lead to new fertility therapies and treatments for premenstrual syndrome if the active agent in male perspiration could be isolated.

I need to point out something here. While out this past weekend I found many people ordering black & tans in honor of St. Patrick's Day. Though I appreciated the gesture I was appalled at the swill mixed with Guinness to purportedly create a black & tan. A true black and tan is Guinness and Harps. Budwiser and Flat Tire, I mean Fat Tire, are not acceptible.
