Happy St. Patrick's Day from Beacon Consulting Group!

Even if you don't have Irish roots, St. Patrick's Day can be a great day to celebrate the end of the winter. Across the U.S., St. Patrick's Day means parades, parties, and "corned beef & cabbage" dinners. Downtown Chicago has one of the more unusual and famous traditions -- Every St. Patrick's Day the local plumbers union dyes part of the Chicago River emerald green (see photos below). Members of Local 130 use 50+ lbs of vegetable dye mixed with water which then gets sprayed into the river from boats. The bright green color apparently lasts for 24-48 hours before dissipating.

I hope you have a great day today and a great weekend. As the old Irish saying goes:

"May your troubles be less. And your blessings be more.

And nothing but happiness come through your door."
