Good Things.

Once upon a time I knew an Irishman and trough him I grew very attached to everything Irish.
Even though our relationship fell apart, my infatuation with his beautiful country is still today left intact.

I still love a good whiskey, I am still mesmerized by Riverdance, Irish music and that incredibly stunning natural and rugged beauty of the country. And most of all - I still love a good pint of Guinness.

To honour today's St.Patrick's day and the memory of a good man, I decided to once again share with you my favorite Guinness commercial.

I too am a firm believer that indeed good things come to those who wait.

Matty said...

Ah yes, being Irish on my dad's side of the family, I will be wearing the green today. And going out to celebrate.

Patience indeed is a virtue.

Regina said...

Lovely!
Happy St. Patrick's' Day.

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you! Enjoy a bit of green today.

My oldest granddaughter takes Irish step dancing lessons. It's fun to watch her clog and kick. She has red hair, so she looks the part.

Funny how in different parts of the world, some non-Irish people remember and celebrate! You in Denmark and me in India. You might like to read this post of mine - http://www.everydaygyaan.com/2010/03/blessing-of-irish.html

Happy GREEN LUCKY day!

My husband saw the Guiness advert playing and said, 'mmm I love Guiness.' Those Guiness adverts have to be some of the best.
I'm sorry your relationship broke down. It's good that you can still appreciate all things Irish though.
Happy St. Patricks Day.

Enjoy the day.

Happy Saint Patrick's day Zuzana!
Interesting good things happen to those who wait. Good line! I hope it's true; I've been waiting for a long time for something good, out of the ordinary, to happen to me. But then again, nothing bad happening is good enough? makes you think, huh?

Or could it be just for the beer ;o) 'cause in that case, I'm doomed: I do not like beer!

have a great day!

Sukanya said...

That was a lovely note Zuzana. Good things definitely come to those who wait!! Sorry that you guys fell apart. But good to know that you developed a liking for the Irish land.

Happy St.Patrick's day Zuzana.
Have fun!!

Cheers,
Sukanya

Ireland is beautiful. I was there last summer but I didn't develop a taste for Guinness. They say it is a taste which is acquired but I didn't acquire it.

This post brought fond memories of last year: the lovely people, spuds, Derry, Seamus Heaney and everything else. I wish I was there.

And Zuzana, good things are everywhere. So sometimes, just don't wait. You might already be possessing it. Cheerio.

Zuzana, a lovely news: I submitted my dissertation finally :) Thanks for your positive energy for me.

Joy always,
Susan

sprinkles said...

Oh yes, the Irishman. I kind of miss him. Which is funny since I never knew him or even what he looked like.

I don't ever do anything to celebrate St. Patrick's Day other than wear green but after watching that video, I want a big old pint of Guiness!

A Lady's Life said...

HAPPY ST PATTIES TO YOU TOO Zuzana!!!

And good green cheer and blessings sent your way:)

Rajesh said...

Beautiful commercial. People over here like Irish Coffee.

Ash said...

This post strikes a chord Zuzana. My ex-boyfriend was an Irishman :-) I adore Irish folk music!

Happy St.Patricks Day!

Jill from Killeny Glen said...

My very Irish man introduced me to a cold Guinness twenty plus years ago and I was SOLD on the spot! It is also the KEY ingredient to our Shepherd's pie which we heartily enjoyed last eve.

I have never seen this commercial! Love it!

Happy Saint Patrick's to you! (a bit late!)

laoi gaul~williams said...

Amanda said...

CherylK said...

Excellent commercial! As a matter of fact, I was born in Ireland so this is a day of fun. Sadly, I've never liked beer... :-(

Just_because_today said...

funny, I too became very interested in Irish things and anything celtic because of a friend I made. We became very close then not close then close and so it goes. My interest in Irish follows the same pattern

Joanna Jenkins said...

Hope your St. Patrick's Day was grand.

I hadn't seen this commercial. Very creative. I wish more advertisers were this creative.

Cheers, jj

I'm glad you still love Ireland Zuzana.

I'm far from Guinness right now, but I still enjoyed the day.

SandyCarlson said...

I, too, love Ireland. A wonderful place full of art and the art of living. I love the literature of that island as well as th landscape and the fun and the people.
