Woman Honor Thyself

When women are depressed, they either eat or go shopping. Men invade another country. It's a whole different way of thinking. --Elaine Boosler

IrisH DittieS..ListeN Up!




Some of mah fave Irish Proverbs:

Feel free to toss them at yer Irish friends n co-workers..Heh.

You'll never plow a field by turning it over in your mind.
Do not show your teeth until you can bite.
A friend's eye is a good mirror.
Beauty will not make the pot boil. Heh.
Everyone is wise till he speaks.
It's often a man's mouth broke his nose.




God is good, but never dance in a small boat.
Good as drink is, it ends in thirst.
A kind word never broke anyone's mouth.

May those who love us love us. And those that don't love us, May God turn their hearts, And if He doesn't turn their hearts, May he turn their ankles, So we'll know them by their limping.
Irish curse

I can think of some good buddies who would dig that one..heh.

May your glass be ever full, May the roof over your head be always strong, And may you be in heaven Half an hour before the devil knows you're dead.
Irish drinking toast

"There is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about."

Oscar Wilde (1854–1932)
The Picture of Dorian Gray (1891)





The "Tricolour,": the national flag of the Republic of Ireland. Its three equal stripes which illustrate the Irish political landscape as accurately today as in 1848, the year the flag was first unfurled.


orange — standing for Irish Protestants

green — signifying Irish Catholics and the republican cause

white — representing the hope for peace between them



The white in the center signifies a lasting truce between the "Orange" and the "Green," and I trust that beneath its folds the hands of the Irish Protestant and the Irish Catholic may be clasped in generous and heroic brotherhood.

Wouldn't that be something eh?

Go grab a green bagel, wear that doofy green hat with the fringes to work..heck ..what's the worst that could happen?

    Buffalo Bill wanted to open a show inside Chicago's World's Fair in 1893 but was refused. So he opened his show across the street from the World's Fair and actually brought in more money than the operators of the fair. He still died broke and penniless.
