The Da’s 90th Birthday

Posted on Updated on

“Today would have been The Da’s 90th birthday. This is from our 2005 trip to Ireland for his 80th birthday with my brother Pat. Please raise a glass to his life well-lived today … and consider the Czech Proverb. ‘A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it’s better to be thoroughly sure.'” – Dayle Hayes, via “We Love Jim Hayes” Facebook Group

I got a forward this morning that is perfect for us ink-stained old wretches and anyone who still loves newspapers. Go to . Put your mouse anywhere on the world map where there’s a town of any size, click–and presto–you’ll see today’s front page of the newspaper from that city. This has to be a greater time-waster than online solitaire, checkers, or the silly penguin game.
