editor's note poka-dotGET YOUR IRISH ON!

 Sure and begorrah, 'tis a grand day to be alive! The above phrase is Irish slang and means "sure and by God." It's just our way of letting you know that St. Patrick's Day is this coming Monday. It doesn't seem to matter what our ethnic background is, on March 17th we all wear green and become Irish for a day. St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland and his fascinating biography would make a great movie. You can read about him in a post below. However, before we get to lucky St. Patrick's Day on Monday, we must first get through "the Ides of March" on Saturday. This  day has a superstitious  reputation 'to be careful' because of the soothsayers' warning to Julius Caesar to "Beware the Ides (Latin for 15th) of March."  This is the date Caesar was assassinated by Brutus. Woooh....spooky! We much prefer the luck of the Irish and hope you will enjoy the legends and tips in this issue as we wish you this well known Irish blessing:

 

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rain fall soft upon your fields,
And, until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

 

Happy Thursday!

CAN'T GET A 'BITE' ON WHAT BITCOIN IS....

 

THIS MIGHT HELP! If you haven't heard of bitcoin... then you will want to read through this Q & A to stay up on what's happening out there. As simply put in a recent Newsweek article, "Bitcoin is the world's most wildly successful digital currency, with transactions of nearly $500 million a day at its peak."  The identity of bitcoin founder, Sotoshi Nakamoto, was just identified recently. Here is an article from Newsweek that explores that surprising identity that has stayed under wraps for years.

WHO WAS ST. PATRICK?

 

The real St. Patrick wasn't even Irish. He was born in Britain around A.D. 390 to an aristocratic Christian family. Patrick showed no interest in Christianity as a young boy, but at 16, he was kidnapped and sent overseas to tend sheep as a slave in the mountainous countryside of Ireland for seven years. While he was there, he had a religious conversion and became a very devout Christian. According to folklore, a voice came to Patrick in his dreams, telling him to escape. He found passage on a pirate ship back to Britain, where he was reunited with his family, but the voice then told him to return to Ireland. After he was ordained as a priest, he did go back and spent the rest of his life trying to convert the Irish to Christianity. His work wasn't easy. He was constantly beaten by thugs, harassed by the Irish royalty, and admonished by his British superiors. He  died on March 17, 461. Mythology began to grow around Patrick, and centuries after his death he was honored as the Patron Saint of Ireland.

DID YOU KNOW?

 THE MEANING BEHIND IRISH SYMBOLS & LEGENDS

 

The Color Green...Ireland is known as "The Emerald Isle" because of its brilliant and lush green landscape.

 

The Shamrock......Presumably, St. Patrick used the three leaves of a shamrock to explain the concept of the Christian holy trinity: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

 

The Leprechaun...According to legend, this tiny creature is a devious Irish 'faery,' (one of the "wee folk") who has a hidden "Pot of Gold". If you catch one, he must turn his treasure over to you, but be careful. He may use his magic powers to turn you into a frog!

 

Pot o' Gold at the End of the Rainbow...A bit of science , - *Since the rainbow is an arc, it is the only part of a circle as reflected by the sun that we can see. As far back as the 17th century, the Irish understood this. Since a circle has no end, they were fond of saying that one was as likely to find a pot of gold as to find the end of a rainbow. It became part of fairy mythology, and a good place for a leprechaun to hide his treasure!

 

Lucky Four Leaf Clover...Four leaf shamrocks are rare, so if you find one you are "lucky." The more modern interpretation of St. Patrick's leaves is Faith, Hope, and Love, with the fourth leaf symbolizing Luck.

 

Kiss The Blarney Stone...According to tradition, if you kiss the Blarney Stone (a block of bluestone in the battlements of Blarney Castle in Ireland), you receive the gift of eloquence and cleverness of speech.

 

*NOTE TO PARENTS - The source for our shortened description of a rainbow is a website for kids that answers a lot of "why" questions about weather that you might want to save. Click here

FLASH BEAUTY TIP OF THE WEEK

 Sponsored by: Center for Facial Aesthetics      banner beauty tip

AHHHHH, HOT STONE MASSAGE!

 

Hot Stone Massage is a style of massage therapy in which water-treated stones are placed at specific sites on the client's body to promote relaxation and to help open up the merdians (energy pathways). Muscles are pretreated with the heated stones to allow the therapist to more easily perform deep tissue manipulations. Cool stones are sometimes used alternately with hot stones. Massage oils are usually incorporated into the massage treatment.

Benefits of Hot Stone Massage

  • Promotes deep muscle and tissue relaxation

  • Alleviates stress

  • Releases toxins

  • Relieves pain

  • Improves circulation

  • Calms the psyche 

If you are interested in a Hot Stone Massage please call: 772-589-8111. Our rates are: 60 Min $60 - 90 Min $90.
