as mg and i prepare to head out

for an irish breakfast

in celebration

of st. patrick’s day

we feel lucky.

we both

still have

most of our

fur

and

teeth

and

a taste for

good music

holiday beer

adventure

and

good cheer.

he is the one on stage left.

you gotta try your luck at least once a day,

because you could be going around lucky all day and not even know it.

– jimmy dean

 happy st. pat’s day to all!

happy chinese lunar new year 2015

apparently

there is some controversy.

is this

the year of

the sheep,

the ram,

or

the goat?

opinions differ

but

everyone agrees

on one thing

it’s  a horned animal

of some sort

and

it

looks like

these two

either

started early

or

wandered in

from an

extended

mardi gras

celebration.

here’s the most amazing thing you’ll ever read about our 10th president:

john tyler was born in 1790.

he took office in 1841, after william henry harrison died.

and he has two living grandchildren.

not great-great-great-grandchildren.

their dad was tyler’s son.

HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?

the tyler men have a habit of having kids very late in life.

lyon gardiner tyler, one of president tyler’s 15 kids, was born in 1853.

he fathered lyon gardiner tyler jr. in 1924, and harrison ruffin tyler in 1928.

harrison tyler has been interviewed in the last few years for new york magazine.

lyon tyler spoke to the daughters of the american revolution a while back.

it’s all in the math.

his living legacy continues.
