I actually got my bike out yesterday, dusted it off and did a few easy miles, didn't even need a heavy jacket or any gloves. I've also been able to hang laundry on the clothesline, so the sheets have that fresh, outdoors smell.

Speaking of St Patrick's Day there are some nice things going on this weekend. The church in Swanzey Center will have a Corned Beef and Cabbage Dinner at only $8.50 per person, it is probably the best deal in town. Delrossi's Trattoria (yes, I know it sounds not Irish) will have a Celtic Harp program with harpists from County Mayo, Ireland and Glasgow, Scotland. Coincidently Delrossi's is located in Dublin (New Hampshire).
At the Tartan Fox we will be serving Irish Soda Bread, 2 kinds of marmalade-all homemade and a traditional Irish Breakfast, plus we are offering rooms at 17% off the regular rate. That means a little money to keep in your pot of gold!
