Subject: RE: Blessings to all on St. Pat's 2011
I thought about that Mary, but I (unlike some others) generally would rather the conversation just roll along with the bumps in it. I usually won't delete or use my considerable editing abilities unless absolutely necessary such as in the case of personal attack or complete hijack from anons.

I would just rather prevail upon folks to respect my wishes. Sometimes I get pissed off and shoot out terms like "idiot", but later know I will have to apologize. I am not afraid of debate, but I think it should go in a thread designed for that. The debate here is simply one of understanding why Irish Americans cling to the old values and customs in varying degrees.

All the best,
