Aye! Top o’ da mornin’ to ya lads and lassies -and happy St. Patrick’s Day! Here in the Hall of Fame city located in NE Ohio (USA), it is Thursday, Mar. 17th –the 76th day of the year.

Other celebrations on this day include National Corned Beef and Cabbage Day, and because it’s the 3rd Thursday of the month, National Farm Rescuer/Absolutely Incredible Kid Day.

ONLINE SECURITY

I opt out of all unnecessary cookies, don’t do those ‘what kind of animal are you?’-type surveys, don’t ‘like’ posts my friends/family share if I can’t find/don’t trust the source, and avoid most of the ‘big media’ sites. Nonetheless, I still have to remove ‘big tech’ trackers every morning:

THOUGHTS

Rest in Peace to my dear aunt who passed away yesterday at the young age of 65. Now she is reunited with her beloved husband and my favorite uncle. Age wise, her passing leaves my older sister and I as the matriarch and patriarch of this branch of the Forkins line.


TODAY’S ELECTRONIC TRACK

“It’s Complicated 1pt5 (Remastered)” by JiMiG2pt0 (pronounced ‘jimmy-gee-two-point-oh’). This was an early creation of mine that I’ve remastered several times. Not one of my best works, but also not one of my worst. Have a listen if you dare.
