Saint Patrick's Day 2013

Can you hear it? Creedence Clearwater Revival singing "Green River?"
Today is Saint Patrick's Day. It is celebrated by Irish people, all over the world. It's also celebrated by people who, once a year, pretend they are Irish. That's OK. Wishing to be something that you're not is a compliment to whatever that something is!

The picture? It is the Chicago River, Chicago, Illinois, USA. Every year the river is dyed green in honor of St. Patrick's Day. The view is looking east, in the direction of Lake Michigan. (Click the image for a better view.)

So, raise a glass of your favorite refreshment and toast the Irish and St. Patrick!
