    My hometown, Columbia, S.C., was discovered and originally inhabited by a group of brave Irish explorers, who, after a perilous oceanic crossing, sailed up the mighty Santee River until it got so rocky that they had to disembark on the banks of the Congaree River. There they lived and prospered, establishing a ceremonial portion of town called Five Points, and there they began a tradition of celebrating the life and exploits of their beloved St. Patrick.

  •  If you’re looking for some great recipes that will also let you practice healthy cooking, you really can’t go wrong with many Asian food recipes. They really aren’t difficult to cook and most of them are extremely healthy.

    There are so many different types of Asian food recipes, you’ll never get bored with any of them. The ingredients are all basically the same: lots of vegetables, meats and rice. The spices are basically where they differ.

    It was Valentine’s Day, just a month ago. Hubby Dear and I were home enjoying a warmth neither thermostat nor outdoor thermometer could offer. It was our weekend conversation time. We were recounting the week’s events with a renewal of wonder that we were alive and kicking despite the aches and pains of aging. Our stories bore a repeated gratitude for all we have been given and received across the years.

  •  Which plant group displays the showiest, most flamboyant flowers? Sunflowers and daisies? Lilies, daffodils and amaryllis? Or maybe the iris family? It’s fun to ponder this weighty question now, as spring is about to erupt, and not too soon! But many of us will insist the most spectacular flowers are found among the various orchid species.

     

  •  Roasted corned beef will remind you a little bit of pastrami

    With an Irish background, I remember eating many traditional Irish dishes, especially corned beef and cabbage, which we always had on St. Patrick’s Day. But we liked it so much, we ate it quite often throughout the year.
