The ULTIMATE in fun with green
dye! The Chicago River on St. Patrick's Day...this takes
tanker trucks fulla green food dye to accomplish, but
it's pulled off every year!
I've been looking at the calendar for March,
and let's see...in March of 1953, Jonas Salk discovered the
vaccine for polio...the shoelace was invented in England...the
Eiffel Tower was opened in Paris...Elvis was drafted into
the Army in 1958...and Friday March 17th is St. Patrick's
Day. Since so much has been written on Polio, shoelaces, the
French and Elvis, we'll focus this month on St. Patrick's
Today, people celebrate St. Patrick's Day
with parades, wearing of the green, and drinking beer. One
reason St. Patrick's Day might have become so popular is that
it takes place just a few days before the first day of spring.
One might say it has become the first green of spring. One
would be wrong in assuming this in my estimation...for me
it's all about the green GF beer and infusing everything I
eat or drink with green food coloring!
You can get some pretty interesting results
with a few drops of green food coloring, the key being that
it works best on something of a lighter color, like a nice
lager, cauliflower, popcorn....and EGGS!
Green Eggs and Ham, ala Buck!

All you Leprechauns Keep eatin'! - Buck
If you run into Buck on St. Patty's Day and he's not wearing
green, do not pinch him, he will pinch back. You don't want
to be pinched by Buck.
you have any feedback for Buck, you may e-mail him at
this address. Please allow a certain amount of time for
Buck to respond, as he does not own a computer of his own
and has to share his e-mail with his mother (whom he lives
with). She spends 90% of her waking moments on a scrapbooking
chat group, along with other support groups that deal with
issues involved when your children RETURN home in their 30's.
