Happy St. Bagpipe's Day

Here is the scene across the street at the Whisky Bar.  I was just sitting here, minding my own business, writing music and such and then - bagpipes!  Lots of them.  They've got an entire pipe band at the bar.  Question: Isn't St. Patrick's Day more of an Irish affair?  I mean, I don't care.  I'm 0% Irish and these guys sound great.  They wouldn't be completely out of place playing the Sts. Cyrill and Methodius Day festivities.  Still, it's a bit odd to have an entire pipe band play on St. Patrick's Day.  Anyhow, the Whisky Bar is proving to be an interesting neighbor.  And I mean that in a positive way. 

They have a piper who plays on Fridays.  I was there once for that.  You know what?  Bagpipes are really super-loud.  I guess they have to be if they're to be heard over lochs and leaths and crags and whatnot.  Despite the volume it's a wonderful thing to behold.  I can only guess how loud the entire band is in that enclosed space.  My guess is very.

Well Ireland, Scotland apparently wishes you a happy St. Patrick's Day.

Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was super
long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
I too am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any points for first-time blog writers? I'd really appreciate it.

I do not even know the way I stopped up here,
however I thought this submit was good. I do not recognise who
you might be but certainly you're going to a famous blogger when you are not already. Cheers!
