    Sounds delicious, Victoria.

    Me great-great grandfather come from the Old Sod. All I know about him is that
    his surname was Scottish, so I guess he (or his ancestors) moved around a bit.

    Here's a topical riddle for you: How can you tell an Irishman is having fun?
    He's Dublin over laughing.

    Interesting fact for the day. Dublin was founded by the Vikings. (more of my
    ancestors.) They got around too.

    Funny, Rock & Sis! Got to pass those around today....

    What do you call a fake stone in Ireland?
    a sham rock.

    Thanks for the 'greeting' Jean.

    I think those Vikings AND lots of others over the years have made their way around the world... those DNA charts always ultimately lead back to Africa, tho the places they've gone in between are interesting to see. Have always wanted to do one of those! Now they can do both maternal and paternal apparently.

    Has anyone worn both orange and green on St. Patrick's Day?
    LOL my Mom used to have me do that, I had no idea it was sort of a 'political' statement...
