Santa Rosa, CA. ~ Change is always in the air, whether it be temper- ature, sun, rain, peo- ple,

lions of other random fac- tors. Change is happening continuously. I love all the seasons. Spring is a won- derful time because the garden gets a major make- over and I receive in turn, exercise and fresh air! The onions, leaks, garlic, chives and various colored varieties of onion mark the beginning of my garden- ing season. The sun is also so very refreshing. As all of us know who have lived in here in Sonoma County, this time a year is normally pretty wet. But the dryness is also a welcome change. With little rain and plenty of sunshine, it has allowed me to work on outdoor projects I would have not necessarily been

to work on. Yes, people are already complaining about lack of rain, but in reality, if a per- son looks at it in a positive way, they’ll find the sun really helps with a more positive outlook. It is said there is an abundance of vitamin D associated with sunshine. Just sitting outside every morning, drinking a cup of coffee when the sun is up or even just before, I find it peaceful & relaxing. It sets the pace for my day.

The first St. Patrick’s Day celebration in the United States was held in Boston in 1737.

The color of St. Patrick’s Day was originally blue. Wearing green has become a staple of St. Patrick’s Day, but the holiday was originally associated with the color blue. It’s thought that the shift to green happened because of Ireland’s nickname “The Emerald Isle,” the green in the Irish flag and the shamrock, or clover. Green ribbons and shamrocks were worn as early as the 17th century.

Legend says that each leaf of the clover has a meaning: Hope, Faith, Love and Luck.


Beer is one of the most widely consumed beverages on St. Patrick’s Day.


Whether it’s lunch or dinner, you’ll be surprisingly delighted by the plethora of flavors Thai Pot puts into each dish. Take us up on one of our special offers and you’ll see why we are a favorite! Try our Chai Ice Tea!
