For all of those who partook in the shenanigans and tomfoolery of St Patrick’s Day, I hope you had a safe one and that not too many incriminating pics of you wearing that green leprechaun hat, and green thong, are circulating around social networking sites. Last week, as you’ll recall, I shared why St Patrick’s Day is so awesome. And with the first day of spring always arriving days later, I can do no less for the season that kicks Old Man Winter in the butt, out the door and rolls out the red carpet for summer.

Happy springtime, y’all!
