The web (internet) is 25 years old today and there is a website for it.

P.S. I’m one year older than the web.

I stopped celebrating St. Patrick's Day many years ago without a real reason. This morning I decided to do some research and find out what the holiday is really about. Turns out, I was right to stop celebrating all those years ago. There is nothing about St. Patrick's Day that connects with me - like most holidays observed in this country these days.

Which leads to me wonder further: how many people out there really know what St. Patrick's Day is about? Or do they just think it is about parades, green and drinking?
