Happy St. Patrick's Day

I almost forgot to tell you Happy St. Patrick's Day
I feel lucky to have you as my dear friends.
I thought this was neat.
The Chicago River

Chicago river dyed green

Chicago is also famous for a somewhat peculiar annual event: dyeing the Chicago River green. The tradition started in 1962, when city pollution-control workers used dyes to trace illegal sewage discharges and realized that the green dye might provide a unique way to celebrate the holiday. That year, they released 100 pounds of green vegetable dye into the river—enough to keep it green for a week!
