green kisses, green tea in a green Depression glass that sits on a green crocheted holder,
all lead to St. Patrick's Day. However, if you can't wait till St. Patrick's Day, you can always celebrate the Ides of March.
For those who forgot their history lessons from middle school/ junior high, the Ides of March is a day on the traditional Roman calendar that
roughly corresponds to March 15 on our current calendar.
It is most
commonly associated with the assassination of Julius Caesar in 44 BC. Caesar, the brutal dictator of the Roman Republic, was assassinated by a coalition of Roman senators who conspired to get rid of him before he could overthrow them. His assassination led to the fall of the Roman Republic and rise of the Roman Empire. So feel free to raise your glass (or cup) to St. Patrick or the fall of Julius Caesar today.

Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears because now it's your turn. "Et tu, Brute?" You may share photos,
a place you visited, an empty cup, a full cup, teapot, or mug, movies, postcards, books, sketches, mixed media, drawings, paintings, tags,
scrapbooking, or other art that is digital, hybrid, or traditional, as
long as it in some way relates back to a drink, any drink. Regardless,
please share below, then Bleubeard and I, along with the rest of the T
gang will be by to visit. Brutus and St. Patrick will not be joining us, though. However, Bleubeard would like to remind you that your photos may be taken at any time, not just on Tuesday.
