My husband found this four leaf clover just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, and that’s no blarney. (Remind me to take him along the next time I check out the end of a rainbow.) Today, though, we can all lay claim to a little luck o’ the Irish…

It seems that those lads and lasses are on to something. When the American Heart Association convened a few years ago, researchers revealed that Guinness might be just as effective as a daily aspirin for reducing blood clots that lead to heart attacks. The antioxidants in dark Irish stouts reduce cholesterol deposits on arterial walls. (Sorry, lager lovers, but the paler beers don’t have the same power.) Now that should put a little zip in your bagpipes!

Happy St. Paddy’s Day, everyone. Wear green and be safe.
