Know when to say "no".

You know it's nearly time to quit working in the yard when your muscles are all aching and sore, and things are nearly done except to cut down that old stump.

You know it's definitely time to quit working in the yard when the chain saw rips holes in your jeans (leaving the skin underneath miraculously intact).

You know you picked a good time to quit working in the yard when you drop the axe head (blunt side, fortunately) on your little toe while putting the tools away.

And, on a day like this, you know that you made the right decision, choosing computer programming over landscaping.

Music Video Monday: "Danny Boy"

I'm not Irish, but I suspect that my Viking ancestors probably left their mark on the Emerald Isle many years ago, so I'm gonna celebrate St. Patrick's Day here. Don't worry, I'm not going to do anything tacky, like insert shamrock icons everywhere or change the color scheme to a green hue. Nope, gonna do this classy, with the beloved song "Danny Boy":

Like I said, classy.
