    Your website will always reflect the kind of business you offer so it is just in time that you update your client's website. I like the large header, but the text on the upper portion of it looks dated....

    Looks like a bull right but it needs a little bit of polishing and enhancements. Bulls have basically long, curved very pointed horns so you can work on that. And maybe fiercer eyes....

      The complication here is that if legislators made this an official holiday in the US, considering the way we celebrate it here vs. in Ireland, they would be obligated by civic duty to make the 18th a holiday as well. It would be un-American not to observe national hangover day in conjunction with St. Patti's.

        It's not official already? They celebrate like crazy in St. Paul, but up here, we have the Finns who have usurped the whole thing by celebrating the 16th with St. Urho's Day. It's pretty silly, but I think the whole thing was made up by some guy who didn't like the Irish, because not only do they do it one day earlier, but the patron saint chased grasshoppers out of Finland to save the grape crops.

          What's more important that making it a national holiday, is making it a federal holiday. Federal means we get it off work. Of course, I take it off work regardless, but federal means my wife and friends all get it off work as well. St. Patrick's day is definitely better celebrated starting at noon than starting at 6:00.

            I celebrate St David's Day (Dydd Dewi Sant). He's the patron saint of Wales. It's March 1st. It's not quite as marketable as St Patricks day, seeing as our national dish is basically cheese on toast with leek soup. This is national Welsh costume if you fancy a laugh... (sometimes little kids will dress up like this for school, but not many any more)







            I find it funny that St Patrick's day is a much much bigger celebration thanks to guiness marketing in England than St George's day (England's own Patron Saint)

                        lol. how much of that did you have to google, Frankster?
                        (I had to google all of it! - but it was on a website full of useful Welsh phrases. So one can only presume that there's some sort of massive hovercraft/eel problem in Wales)
