Even though I'm Polish through and through, I have a soft spot for the Irish. I went to St. James High School and our mascot or logo was "The Irish". The best part was that we always had a free day on the Monday after the big St. Pat's parade in Bay City. As a student and maybe even more as a teacher, I've enjoyed a day off from school that wasn't associated with a regular holiday.
A group of us got together at Linda's home to try making jewelery yesterday. I took a cake for dessert, testing a new recipe. I tried Jenny's recipe for almond cake.
