Here in the sunny South, it seems we are going to skip spring and go straight to summer. It's been in the high 70s, low 80s the last few days. Josh and I went into Charlotte today for the St. Patrick's Day Parade and festival. The parade lasted almost 2 hours, so we skipped the last part of it and went in search of food and beverage. I had a corned-beef sandwich and washed it down with a Guinness, followed by a Black and Tan. I've never had one of those before. It was quite tasty.
