This I’ve Learned

I WAS THINKING…
about how I get be Irish again, even if it’s only for one day. The food is good. The songs are heartwarming, especially Danny Boy. That song triggers memories and my eyes get wet when I hear it. I like the Irish dancing. I guess it reminds me of my clog dancing days. It’s said that if you are caught not wearing green on St. Patrick’s Day, you might get pinched. I’m not taking any chances. I had my fingernails painted green.

SOME IRISH SAYINGS
May the road rise up to meet you.
May your home always be too small to hold all your friends.
You’ve got to do your own growing, no matter how tall your grandfather was.
May the roof above you never fall in and those gathered beneath it never fall out.
A little fire that warms is better than a big fire that burns.
The older the fiddle the sweeter the tune.
Life is like a cup of tea, it’s all in how you make it.

KEEP A HAPPY FACE
The greatest challenge in life is discovering who you are. The second greatest is being happy with what you find.
The key to being happy is knowing you have the power to choose what to accept and what to do. 
The simplest ways to stay happy is letting go of the things that makes you sad.
Being happy doesn’t mean you have it. It simply means you’re thankful with what you have.

PUT LEMONS TO WORK
(Taken from Reader’s Digest Practical Problem Solver)
Rub stained enamel fixtures with a cut lemon; for stubborn stains, use a paste of lemon juice and borax.
Soak soggy lettuce in cold water and half a lemon; refrigerate for one hour.
Keep apples from turning brown by coating the cut surface with lemon juice.
To salvage a soured sponge, saturate it with lemon juice, then rinse it thoroughly.
