CONGRATULATIONS to Ashlee Ritchie of Cromer!-Winner of a YEAR SUPPLY OF BACON!
THANKS so much to Jennifer Murray for coming on to talk about “Real Ireland”. We talked about Craic (pronounced crack) which is fun. Let’s go get some Craic sounds so different when saying it in Canada. We also talked about the traditional food and drink, and how green vodka is more popular than green beer. It’s actually Guiness that is the real Irish beer to have on a day like today, and the food is not cabbage and corn beef, but rather fried sausage and something called a “Spice Bag”. Jennifer and Tyler will go on the “Irish Pub” Tyler Glen Show world tour in 2024. She was a great guest and you can check out the interview on TWITCH or the audio in the podcast.
The Parks Reservation Service is moving to a NEW platform! Ensure you capture your past reservations and favorite sites on your existing account before NEXT FRIDAY March 24. One week from TODAY!
