I've been trying to come up with something fun today, and I think I've got it.
Today we're going to play "What do you know about Ireland?"
To get you started, we've got to announce the prize. You can bet your lucky leprechauns that there's a pot of gold at the end of this rainbow. But what kind of gold, you might ask. Oh, but that's the joy of leprechaun magic. It can be any kind of gold I want.
At my house there were chocolate gold coins scattered throughout the house and Leprechaun force-fields around some of the bedrooms. The force-field term was something my five-year-old son termed the streamers he found on his door again this year. But this time the tricky little leprechauns covered his whole door with a sheet of paper and dared him to leave his room.
We've been having lots of fun at our house. And don't forget the Lucky Charms. Everyone has had their share to keep the luck running strong.
But my favorite is the Irish Soda bread from Zeppole's next to succulent corned-beef and cabbage and boiled red potatoes. I'm in heaven just thinking about it.
Ahh, but back to me gold. You will win a piece of gold that is close to my heart. Pulsar. I'll send the lucky winner a stuffed version of my favorite golden dragon. Don't worry, this one can't breathe fire.
So, on with the game!

Rules for the game.... out of those who leave a comment and answer ALL TEN correctly, one will be drawn. If only one answers all of them right, that person wins. And you can bet your lucky buttons that if you don't leave your e-mail, I'll not be finding you very quick. If no one gets them all right, no one wins. And since it's so easy to copy each other, go ahead and do it, but tell me your favorite thing about St. Patrick's day too!!!!
The winner will be announced on Saturday. Good luck to all of you!
