Kiss Me I Might Be Irish

I am currently without Internet service because my wireless device broke. I am blogging from a Vermont visitor center at the moment. Luckily I purchased the replacement insurance for the device and will hopefully receive a new one in the mail tomorrow. I usually turn down offers for replacement insurance or extended warranties. For example just last week I turned down the extended warranty on the $12 toy microwave I was buying. When the cashier at Wal-Mart asked me if I wanted it, I asked if it "cooked real food?".
I hope everyone is having a really lucky day! Every year the kids make Leprechaun traps for St. Patricks day. Unfortunately, because I have no Internet access from home, I can't post the pics of this years. E made it out of slate pieces she painted with green designs and set it up outside. When the kids woke up they found that the Leprechauns had left them shamrock pins and chocolate. We love those little Leprechauns, maybe next year we will actually catch one.

Hey. This may be stupid, so take it for what it's worth.

I saw this ad on tv for some show on WE called "The Locator". He reunites lost loved ones. Do you think you use something like that to help you sort thru the messiness of your birth/adoption process? Here are some links:
