It's St. David's Day again

Happy St. David's Day! It's been a while since I posted a St. David's Day article.

My heritage is mostly Welsh. My father was born in Wales (in Monmouthshire where his family lived) and my mother's family is mostly Welsh.

St. David is the patron saint of Wales much like St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland. It is a time of singing and poetry reading and the staging of plays and the playing of rugby matches. I was going to cook up a big pot of leek soup and offer a cup to anyone interested but I just got behind in everything. Maybe next year.

You would be perfect if you had the Welsh accent to go with those blue eyes!
