St. Patricks Day: About St. Patrick and his Day

I first published this at Techography on March 17, 2007. I’ve reposted it here for posterity and your reading pleasure!- BS

    I, Patrick, a sinner, a most simple countryman, the least of all the faithful and most contemptible to many, had for father the deacon Calpurnius, son of the late Potitus, a priest, of the settlement [vicus] of Bannavem Taburniae; he had a small villa nearby where I was taken captive. I was at that time about sixteen years of age. I did not, indeed, know the true God; and I was taken into captivity in Ireland with many thousands of people, according to our deserts, for quite drawn away from God, we did not keep his precepts, nor were we obedient to our priests who used to remind us of our salvation. And the Lord brought down on us the fury of his being and scattered us among many nations, even to the ends of the earth, where I, in my smallness, am now to be found among foreigners.
    St. Patrick, The Confessio

The person who was to become St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, was born in Wales about AD 385. His given name was Maewyn Succat, and he almost didn’t get the job of bishop of Ireland because he lacked the required scholarship.

Far from being a saint, until he was 16, he considered himself a pagan. At that age, he was sold into slavery by a group of Irish marauders that raided his village. During his captivity, he became closer to God.

St. Patricks Day: About St. Patrick and his Day

I first published this at Techography on March 17, 2007. I reposted it here in 2010 for posterity and your reading pleasure! I imagine it will be a yearly thing- BS

Die Mädchen der Wiesn

Given our quote today I thought I’d spread a little temptation

is that time of year again when the noble Germans hold a celebration that was probably created by an Irishman.

It has been several years since I was in Germany, but Yes my friends I mean Oktoberfest.

When a good Germans gaze turns to beer, and girls, and beer, and girls, and girls and beer and …..maybe an occasional bratwurst.

Just for fun and to help us get through the week I figured I’d share some girls, and beer, and girls, and beer and…

oh to hell with and just keep reading….it’s relatively safe for work….save for that whole lack of production thing. And wipe the drool when your done.

In Celebration of…Me?

Well, today marks the 2 year anniversary of me being off drugs.  Some say that this is a great accomplishment, well, it is.  I couldn’t have done it without the help and support of my family and friends.

I’d like to thank my parents first of all for dragging me from the hell that I was in.

I’d also like to thank my loving wife, for without her, I may have wandered back into the darkness.

In celebration, I am posting some of my favorite posts, they show some of my biggest accomplishments, and the things that I am most proud of.  So, without further hesitation, here are my greatest hits:
