ERIN GO BRAGH?

You don’t have to be in the Big Apple to celebrate with the Irish.  Erin, a tiny hamlet  in Western New York, puts on quite a bash, says resident Alice Britenbaker.  Irish dancers in costume perform, the fire department hosts a huge feast and the local historical museum opens its doors to remind everyone what life was like in the 19th and early 20th centuries….

JUST FOR LAUGHS:

Three hard of hearing Irish men in there 70’s are out  on the golf course.   The First Irish Man says, “Sure is windy ut isn’t it?”….The Second Irish Man says, “NO–it’s Thursday”….The Third Irish Man says, “Thirsty—me too–let’s go get somethin to drink!”….

Quote:

“Our people look for a cause to believe in.  Is it a third party we need, or is it a new and revitalized second party, raising a banner of not pale pastels, but BOLD COLORS which make it unmistakably clear  where we stand on all of the issues troubling the People…” –RONALD W. REAGAN  (03/01/1975)

History Monday: Presidents’ Day !

February 15, 2008

          Did you know that presidential code names have little to do with the actual ‘safety’ of the President?   Once upon a time….presidential code names were useful when radio and phone communications were “unsecured” and could easily be picked up by outsiders.   Nowadays, however, the military and the Secret Service can communicate over highly “secured” lines — making a presidential code name irrelevant.  Still, habit lives on…as you’ll see below.

          (Renee’s Aside: “All presidential code names are chosen by the U.S. Military.  George Bush, Jr was given his code name back during his ‘rowdy days’ when his dad –George Bush, Sr– was still President.  It takes too long to say, let’s go get ‘George who can really throw one back’.    So,  the Secret Service shortened it, and said,  instead, ‘Let’s go get Tumbler’ ….Tee, hee, hee”….)
