Tomorrow being the Solemn Feast of St Patrick, I plan on spending all day telling the beers beads. Tonight, I figured I'd post a couple of videos by the Corrs, a family group often described as "the most physically gifted band in the world", an assessment I'd have to agree with. One of their most celebrated instrumentals is Toss the Feathers, a sprightly number which showcases their virtuosity:
My personal favorite song by the Corrs is their take on I Know My Love, which they recorded with trad supergroup The Chieftains:
I plan on hitting the pubs church fairly early tomorrow- I'll probably set the alarm for the crack of dawn so I can put a corned brisket on to simmer for a few hours before finishing it off in the oven (I like to brown it a little, a pinkish gray slab of meat isn't all that appealing)... it's not good to drink pray on an empty stomach. I made sure to buy a couple of "beeves" while the sales were on, as I occasionally get a serious jones for a corned beef sandwich on rye. This year, I wasn't ambitious enough to get any boiling bacon, though my local butcher brines a mean bacon.
