Thank you for redefining my nationality, regardless of my wishes. I reserve the right to do similarly for you some day.

...and on March 17th, everyone is Irish...

No, not everyone...

St George's Day is, as always, on April 23rd.



My wife's geneology research ( funded by my mother ) has turned up evidence that I am
a lot more English and a little less Irish then I previously thought. I'll have to look into 
St. G's day too I guess.... We have traced the family line back to 1253 though.... I did know
that I was a mutt I just had the percentages a little off.

I'm not familiar with this fascinating holiday. Where did it originate?

I am unfamiliar with this 'Air kraken'. Is there anything I could read to inform myself on this subject? Thanks!

I may still have some of the standard aeromalacology texts from my time at the Ruritanisch Zeitkriegschule. Do you read German well?

Otherwise, The Horror of the Heights by Arthur Conan Doyle is a good although incomplete introductory monograph. I believe it is freely available at several locations on the interwebs.

Very tasty if prepared correctly.

Rather like calamari but not so heavy.

I always imagine air kraken to be more like an octopus. No bones except the beak. Not liquid inside the body, but lighter-than-air gas. Propulsion like it's aquatic brother, by jet. Also, fine powder that can be used as a cloud to camouflage.
