GRAND Social No. 96 plus St. Paddy's Day truths


Happy St. Patrick's Day! Here are some bits o' trivia about everyone's favorite day o' green:

I didn't know the majority of that — and I'm even (partially) Irish.

Will you and yours enjoy corned beef and cabbage today? I used to make that holiday favorite for the family on St. Patrick's Day. I also used to make green eggs and ham for breakfast on St. Patrick's Day. (Why? Meh... close enough to Dr. Seuss' birthday to get away with it.) One perk of the empty nest and being a long-distance grandma, though, is that I no longer need to do any special cooking today. Truth is, Jim and I will be ordering Reuben sandwiches from our favorite sandwich spot for dinner. Cheers to whatever festive food — and drink — you might be enjoying today!


Today is not only for the wearing o' the green, but for the sharing o' the links, as well. Thank you for joining me for this week's link party. As the Irish toast goes: May the hinges of our friendship never grow rusty!

link party

How it works:

  • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
  • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to your blog's home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
  • You can add up to three posts, but no duplicates, contests, giveaways, or Etsy sites, please.
  • Adding a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:

  • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.

  • If you're not a blogger, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.
