Happy St Paddy's day to all the Irish.
according to my DNA i'm 27% gaelic & my name translates to "devotee of St Patrick."
now enjoying a glass of Jameison's whisky.
I have irish in me from my mother side and Scottish from dads side
@Marionville from what i can understand about Irish/Scots DNA, there is no significant difference. they're all gaelic/celtic & mainly descended from the same settlers from the Iberian peninsula & the vikings.
my DNA shows IRE, SCOT, WALES 27%, Scandinavia 22%, Iberian peninsula 13%. the other high % is W.Europe 27%.
A bit of Irish DNA back several generations but I enjoyed a few pints with friends at our favourite pub yesterday - perfect!
@bookofmorons Yes...same in both parts of Ireland. No pubs, restaurants or any licensed premises open on the island of Ireland at present, due to the pandemic.
@Marionville ah yes. thought it might pertain to "the Troubles" but of course that makes more sense.
Pubs were open here but at 50% max and mandatory masks except when seated
I'm half Irish. That's why I'm a born storyteller. Not a drinker.
Here are my mother and grandmother, both 100% Irish.
Here in Ireland...”full Irish” refers to a cooked Irish breakfast! .....bacon, eggs, sausage, kidneys, tomato, soda bread, potato bread....and washed down with copious mugs of strong tea!
According to my DNA test I am 96% English, whiter than Wonder Bread but I will raise a glass in your honour.

Posted by SnowyOwlDefinitely a white xmas again this year. This year I think I will gift myself a fill up of our propane tank, that's a thousand bucks right there.
Posted by bookofmoronsAlways love to share this at Thanksgiving (Although Fiona stripped our fall foliage off so colours are few and far between this year . . sigh)

Posted by bookofmoronsheard that nonsense from the local and Ottawa tantrum convoy at least a dozen times. If you're gonna "overthrow the government", you should at least know which country you're in.
Posted by SnowyOwlJust for Laughs. :D

Posted by SnowyOwlSoon the occupiers who feel privileged will realize that privileges are not rights and hopefully leave and go home.
Posted by SnowyOwlIt's easy to believe that you are in the majority when you live in an echo chamber.
Posted by actofdogNinety percent of Canadian truckers are vaccinated so the ''freedom convoy'' is useless and has no end game, plus it is illegal now they only had a two day permit.
Sounds like a very similar mix to my own! Three quarters Scots and one quarter Irish....but I have no Canadian!
