How was everyone’s St. Patrick’s weekend and/or day?  Full of Cranberries and Pogues music, I hope.  In lieu of an Irish-themed quiz, which I’ll tackle next year, the lyrics below, as usual on the off-week, are a random assortment. When it comes to lyric quizzes, folks, do you prefer themes?  Do they make things easier?  Or do you like the variety.  Or is anyone even reading… appreciate any feedback you might have!  Thanks!
