The best way to be sure there'll be no alcoholic temptation during a fast is to empty the stocks the day before.

Most pictures of Ireland I see give me the impression it's the geenest place on earth.

Yeah, vacation. Counties Kerry and Cork are the most beautiful places I've been to, along with Sabah.

Everyone there thought my wife was the Irish one. Meanwhile my Chinese family think I look Italian (they've never met an Italian in their lives, of course).

My brother, sister and her friend went on an unguided tour of Ireland last summer. Apparently mentioning when our people got bounced out of the country (the Republican rebellion of the 1790s) was still some kind of passport to free beer in the villages they wondered through in the Republic proper.

That's fantastic. My favorite rebel song ("Kelly the Boy from Killane") is from that particular era. Myself, I'm not sure when my ancestors came- it might have been the famine.
