St. Patrick's Day Weekend and an Event

 It is St. Patrick's Weekend in this city and the festivities are underway.  There were drunk green people out at 8:00 am.  This totally confuses Teddy.  She does not like the noise one bit.

 There is green to be found everywhere.


Everyone in this town is Irish for the weekend.  Except maybe me.  I just don't get it.  It seems to be nothing more than an excuse to get sloppy drunk for days.
I have begun cooking for my daughter's next event in DC.  We are making marinated flank steaks for one of the appetizers.  This is a fabulous recipe if you have not yet tried it. you can find the recipe here:  http://octoberfarm.blogspot.com/search?q=flank+steak

I have made this recipe many times over 40 years and no matter how much I make there is never any left.
This will be my daughter's last event because, I am happy to say, she is about to start a new job.
She was not even looking for one but was spotted by someone and offered the job of a lifetime.

This is her dream job and I wish her all the best with her new venture.  For her privacy I won't say more but believe me she is beyond excited!
