St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations Quote for Today: May the luck of the Irish be with you! St. Patrick’s Day is March 17 with celebrations in Irish Pubs and restaurants across the United States. Many cities are promoting everything green from dyeing rivers and fountains to parades honoring the Irish.  Savannah’s historic district rates as a top St. Paddy Day celebration destination.

Chinese Proverb Barbara Ricciuti, Guest Blogger Recently my husband and I spent several days in Shellman’s Bluff, a quaint fishing village located on the Georgia Coast forty miles South of Savannah and ten miles North of Darien. Darien is a small city and the seat of McIntosh County. It is located on State Highway 17 and before the completion of I-95 was busy with travelers from the North to the Golden Isles of St. Simon and Jekyll as well as the City of Brunswick. Darien is the second oldest city in Georgia, Savannah being the first, and was built at the mouth of the Altamaha River. The first commerce was rice and...
