    I want you to know that this image made my day. I was standing in the island's local pub late last night, having a beer before turning in early to teach today ...in a low-key mood. It was St. Patrick's Day, Part I, and I was surrounded by people having far too much fun --and certainly more fun than me. I read that post and laughed out loud. I was still laughing and smiling broadly for a full minute, long enough for two people to ask 'hey what's in that beer?' Ha ha.

    PS: It may be St. Patrick's Day, but it is also the sixtieth anniversary of the launch of Vanguard 1, the oldest satellite still in orbit.
