Hi Everyone,

Happy St. Patrick's Day! St. Patrick day is an Irish's festival. To inline with everyone wearing green, I decided to use a lot of green on the newsletter today....8-). I still remembered the first Saint Patrick's Day parades I visited with my friends more than 10 years ago at Kansas City, USA was a memorable one. Each of us bought and put on a "green hat" to avoid getting pinched. However, putting on a "green hat" to Chinese also signify our spouse has committed adultery ;-). It was certainly a fun day to remember as we teased each other while wearing the "green hat"...8-). Anyway, as green also marks the start of spring, I hope you have great fun in coming weeks. Take care.

p/s: here is a link to understand the history of St. Patrick's Day
