I must confess to utter and abject failure for the second year in a row.† I got Guinness in cans and had to settle for Bass Ale as I was too late to score any Harp.† I made my Black and Tan for St. Patrickís Day.† I thought with the cans instead of bottles like last year, I would triumph at last.† Sadly I lost my curved mixing spoon and couldnít find a suitable replacement.† So I mixed it anyway to this result.
An Utter and Complete Failure
So to console myself, I drank them anyway.† Because of the hardware problem, I was unable to achieve the desired result.† I got a four pack of Guinness and a six pack of Harp, so I wasnít constrained to a single try.† A couple of days later, I decided to try again but this time using a proper beer glass.
Success at Last!!!!!!!!!

We contacted the handyman the Realtor recommended and got a quote.† We decided to go with him and he has been working on the house for a week.† It was a big job emptying the den so it could be painted.† Our home life is almost totally disrupted during the renovations.† We had hoped to have it done before Megís spring break but that was not to be.† The workmen were here all of last week including Saturday.† It looks like they will finish by Thursday or so.† Here are a few pictures for your enjoyment.† We tried to keep the animals company as much as possible because their life has been significantly disrupted.
