Happy St. Patrick;s Day

I have always felt I had some kind past-life in Ireland or something and today is, obviously, the day to celebrate it. My very first experience of tasting beer, unlike many Canadians who probably tried something by Molson - I tried Guinness. It was at the Ireland Pavilion at Expo 86 in Vancouver - I was 13 and I think that the taste I was offered was for more of a joke then anything else - but I loved it and the hook was planted for life... forget About that pale, limp, beer from Canada and perish the water that comes from the States ;)

Since then I actually managed to make a trip to Dublin - it was a side trip from a photography job in England and I only had one night but the Guinness factory tour was certainly on the program. It finishes off with a pint in their pub and wow, what a difference. I thought I liked it here - itīs About twice as think there and a wholly different experience.

In any regard - on this day of the year I fondly remember that trip and look Forward to the next time Iīm there to savor the black gold yet again in itīs home country.
