Let's Not Leave St. Paddy's Day in Haste.........


Just as I'm getting ready to go to bed, I come across a news flash that throws my whole week's schedule off. Because I take my obligation to blog seriously, I had really big plans to review the Dancing With The Stars ladies first thing in the morning. When I say "first thing", that's exactly what I mean because I have other appointments to get out of the way before my first nap.

So I'm faced with a dilema. Do I share my breaking news with you or do I say "screw it" and go to bed. Since disappointing you would make me sad, I decide to stay up and "share". Now I need a sandwich (or more ice cream). I make me a ham sandwich ...

Michael Rice is a 9th Grade Mentor at a high school in South Carolina. Michael works with a mentoring program preparing kids for college....and went to a whole lot of trouble to honor St. Patrick and make his students happy. NOT SO FAST Michael!!

Michael got called into the principal's office FIRST THING in the morning....Did he win a Best Hat and Sunglasses contest? No. School officials sent him home because he wasn't dressed professionally. No one else wore costumes....WHAT? Seems like there are plenty of party poopers in that school. But that's not all...



There was something else that made the principal steaming mad. Green hair!

All I can say is "You rock, Michael"

Grandma, that guy looks wacky, sorry. Did you dress up like that when you were a reading mentor for the local elementary school? hope not.

and, can you devote some time on your blog to the Big Brother after dark show?

I know you are watching it, A LOT, but for those of us that are busy, because we arent retired, or we are too poor to buy the AFTER DARK show, can you just keep us updated?

SO glad "matty" is on the block, only wish Sheila were up there with him.

I think it's cool. Thanks for staying up late just to keep us on top of pressing world news!
