St. Patrick’s Day

In New Orleans on St. Patrick’s Day – Cabbages, carrots and potatoes are traditional for St. Patrick’s parade since the Irish’s most known meal is corned beef and cabbage, which includes potatoes (an Irish national vegetable) and the carrots for color.

 CORRECTION —————————————-

The Green–Cabbage—represents the Catholics
The Orange–Carrots–represents the Protestants
The White–Potato—represents Unity

Just like the flag.

CORRECTION —————————————-

I’m Irish – and have never known Corned Beef to be an Irish dish. Bacon & Cabbage –
Yes, but Corned Beef – NO.

Also, how about

GREEN – THE LAND
WHITE – THE PEOPLE
GOLD – THEIR HEARTS

[Inuit,=house]. The Eskimos traditionally had three types of houses. A summer house, which was basically a tent, a winter house, which was usually partially dug into the ground and covered with earth; and a snow or ice house. The latter was a dome-shaped dwelling constructed of blocks of snow placed in an ascending spiral with a low tunnel entrance. Although it can provide adequate protection for weeks in severe cold, it was used almost exclusively as a temporary shelter while traveling.

George Bernard Shaw (1856- 1950)

In my dreams is a country where the State is the Church and the Church the people: three in one and one in three. It is a commonwealth in which work is play and play is life: three in one and one in three. It is a temple in which the priest is the worshiper and the worshiper the worshipped: three in one and one in three. It is a godhead in which all life is human and all humanity divine: three in one and one in three.

Washington, George (1732-1799)

On his death bed he final words were – “‘Tis well.” George Washington was a hero of the American Revolution and the first President of the United States. Some have claimed that Washington requested a Bible with his dying breath, but neither his doctors nor his private secretary recorded any such request, and they were all with him until the moment he died. Washington did tell one of his physicians, “Doctor, I die hard, but I am not afraid to go. My breath cannot last long.” A short time later, he expressed concern that he not be buried alive, “I am just going. Have me decently buried, and do not let my body be put into the vault in less than three days after I am dead. Do you understand?” “Yes, sir,” the doctor replied. “‘Tis well,” answered Washington.
