Saint Patty's Day is almost here!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Marte Cliff Copywriting

I have been SO absent lately - finding time only to come and comment on a post or two all this week. I've been busy, but what really messed me up was when my laptop crashed on Sunday. Trying to connect through web mail on my old computer has been a trial.

Hopefully the laptop will be repaired and I can go get it on Monday. They thought today, but no.

Meanwhile, I've had brain mush.

But today, while searching for information that will allow me to put programs back on the repaired computer, I came across two St. Pat's poems that I had printed and saved in a binder.

I got a kick out of these, and I hope you do too!

May those who love us, love us;

And for those who don't love us,

May God turn their hearts;

And if he doesn't turn their hearts,

May he turn their ankles, So we will know them by their limping.

~~~

St. Patrick was a gentleman

Who through strategy and stealth

Drove all the snakes from Ireland.

Here's toasting to his health.

But not too many toastings

Lest you lose yourself and then

Forget the good St. Patrick

And see all those snakes again.

Dear Marte,

It will not be easy, but maybe you have to take a couple of days off until your old trusty is back in your hands. Interesting poems.

Dörte Engel Days off aren't really an option when I've had too much unproductive time fooling with this. At least today I found the right tech support person and got my mail coming back to Thunderbird. Having it in web mail had me really messed up. Things kept disappearing.

When it comes to poetry, I lean toward the silly, and I do enjoy the "Irish Blessings," I also like:

May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind always be at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

and rains fall soft upon your fields

Love this one, Marte. The Irish sayings are always wonderful:

May those who love us, love us;

And for those who don't love us,

May God turn their hearts;

And if he doesn't turn their hearts,

May he turn their ankles, So we will know them by their limping.

St. Patrick's Day was a celebration in our real estate office with my first broker.  She was 100% Irish and made a very good Irish coffee.  She would start the celebration at 3pm and there were St. Patrick's Days that I didn't leave the office until 7pm or 8pm after a couple of those Irish coffees.  Always miss her this time of year.

Endre Barath, Jr. I guess it all depends upon the population. No one here seems to notice it either.

Barbara Todaro No - I don't have any really close deadlines, but I do like to finish my work well ahead of deadlines.

Nina Hollander Yes - I enjoy looking up the Irish blessings. There are many, many good ones.

Wayne Martin I believe that will be the case in many communities.

Chris Ann Cleland That does sound like fun. We used to have a small celebration here, but it wasn't for St. Patrick. March 17 was our elderly Scottish neighbor's birthday - and our one Irish neighbor always helped celebrate.

Marte so my question is the laptop worth repairing or would it be better to get a new one with all the bells and whistles? Maybe St Paddy will get you one??Endre

Endre Barath, Jr. Good question -the issue for me was not too much difference between just getting all my files transferred out and fixing it. However, I had already ordered a new one before I found out they actually can fix it.

I think I have to learn how to use the cloud.

Marte, indeed we are all heading to the cloud.... small steps at a time. I have started a back up when my laptop crashed about 10+ years 'Carbonite'.... a couple months ago I migrated my email to Office 365 and it is an Outlook, and happens also to be in the cloud.... although I have the  backup on the laptop, which I might use once a month at best...Endre

Endre Barath, Jr. I've been resisting it, even with my son nagging me to get started.

Fun poem.  Hope you have a great St. Patrick's day.  I will have to remind myself to wear green, although my only claim to be of Irish descent is a sliver of Scott's Irish.  Does that count?
