Subject: RE: A St. Patrick's Day Mudcat Oath
I'm with Seamus on this one..... I had a big bowl of Irish stew sitting looking at Sydney harbour bridge.... I'll make champ myself tonight.....

I had never even heard of corned beef and cabbage when I was at home... but the Americans (I was in florida one St Pats)and Aussies seem to think it's what we have....

actually the only corned beef I had at home came out of a Fray Bentos tin!!!!! *grin*

I drove 150km between gigs on St Pat's played 3 long gigs.... then another all day one on the Sunday..... entertaining passers-by at the foot of the harbour bridge.... great views....... and lots of tourists stopping for photos of this red headed irish girl in a green rugby shirt playing the whistle.... so if any of your relatives come back with this photo with the bridge or opera house in the background... its ME!!!!! hahahaha

only played Danny Boy once....WOOHOO!!!!!!!!!

and managed to get onto the national news playing "whiskey in the jar"........ great fun..... and not one drop of the vile black stuff.......
