This is Saint Patrick’s Day, so what better day and what better way to celebrate my 1,000th posting here than to wish one and all the best of the day?

May the good Lord take a liking to you, but not too soon!

I’ve been doing some study of my genealogy and discovered, somewhat to my surprise, that my ggggrandfather immigrated from Ireland in 1822. I’m Irish! However, the records indicate that I am protestant Irish. Hence, I should be wearing orange and not green today. I’m wearing neither.

I’ve learned that “Greer” is an Irish name and if spelled “Grier” it is a Scottish name. Never thought of Rosie Grier as being Scottish.

Anyway – Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all.

I try not to think of Rosie at all.

Happy St. Patrick’s day to all.

Congratulations on post number 1000.

Rosie’s not Scottish, he comes from the Irish portion of the family, in spite of the spelling.

You’ve never heard of the black Irish?

While my nickname isn’t exactly Irish, my maternal grandfather came from County Cork.

I really enjoy my time here on LumberJocks. I get a kick out of the exchanges of information and the shared pride of accomplishment when someone posts a newly completed project, be it a reproduction of a Louis XIV desk or a simple mallet made from an old pallet. We encourage each other to try and to improve. I’ve learned a lot here, and like to think I’ve given back in some small way.

To those who drag out their Irish roots once a year for their ration of green beer, the best of the day to you. To those whose roots go a bit deeper (like my wife, whose maiden name was Danaher) Slante!
