ERIN GO BRAUGH!!!
My main want is to let you know that on this day, April 24, 1916, a rebellion commenced, kicked off with a speech by Padraic Pearse from the steps of Dublin, Ireland's National Post Office.
"Independence" took five years.. countless deaths.. and the belief and courage of a People whom simply REFUSE (NOT past tense, folks. We still won't allow) subjugation.
Found this in commemoration:
It is known as the Easter Rising.
It brings a quiver to my lips and tears to my eyes.
And swells my little bird-chest...
Other sh*t happened, too. Years vary, but...
I've learned that Sue Grafton-- author of the Alphabet series of who-done-it notoriety, shares a birthday with Leah Ann Evans [happy Birthday, l'il SIS!:D!]...
And a few other tidbits you may like to take a gander at:D
pretty much all I have for the diem, Folks!
Slainte! and have a safe and family fun-filled (if that ain't as oxymoronic there as here, that is...) weekend!
