Happy St. Patrick's Day Random Dozen

It's time for another weekly random dozen.  Linda comes up with a dozen questions every week to help us learn a little more about each other.
This week  we're going to have one or two questions on the Ides of March and such, and then we'll go directly back to random because that is what we do best here.

 1. On a scale of 1-10, how superstitious are you, honestly? 
 I would honestly have to say a one.  I don't consider myself superstitious at all.  I use to work with a lady that put a potato in her bra on Friday the 13th, had never heard that one before then.

2. Julius Caesar is quoted as saying, "I came, I saw, I conquered." Which circumstance or experience of yours does this saying best describe?
My mind is totally blank, even after reading a couple of other answers. 

3. If I peeked in on your day like a mischievous little leprechaun, at what time would I most likely find you blogging?
 In the mornings when the house is quiet and I can think clearly.

4. Re springing forward for Daylight Saving Time, is there anything you've ever been really early or really late for? 
I can't think of anything extremely early or late.  I'm usually right on time or just a tad late.

5. What are you most looking forward to concerning Spring?
 Warmer weather, it seems that this has been the longest, coldest winter I can ever remember. 

6. Shamrocks are the national flower of Ireland and are picked on St. Patrick's Day and worn on the lapel or shoulder. Do you wear green on St. Patty's Day?
 Not anymore.  Until two years ago we lived in the Savannah area and as most know they have the 2nd largest parade in the United States.  But I can't remember the last time I went to the parade.  It is one big party for drunks and I've outgrown that stage in my life, thankfully.
No I don't know the people in the picture.  I tried to find one that showed what it's really like in Savannah today without revealing faces of people I didn't know. 

7. One of Caesar's assassins, Casca, said, "But, for my own part, it was Greek to me," which of course means he didn't understand something. Probably his own lines in the play. Anyway, what is something that is "Greek to you," something incomprehensible or indecipherable?
 First thing that popped in my head "men".  As I'm sure men would say the same for women.

8. Is March behaving more like a lion or a lamb where you live?   More like a lamb, it hasn't really been windy.
 Cool mornings, warm afternoons, and rain about every 2-3 days.

9. "An extra yawn one morning in the springtime, an extra snooze one night in the autumn is all that we ask in return for dazzling gifts. We borrow an hour one night in April; we pay it back with golden interest five months later." -Winston Churchill. If you had one extra hour per day every day, what would you do with it?
Probably catch up on some much needed sleep.

10. Legend says that every Leprechaun has a pot of gold hidden deep in the Irish countryside. Aside from real gold or money, what material item would be in your dream pot of gold?
I'm not a very materialistic person, so I will go with the first thing I thought of.  An all expense paid weeks vacation would be nice.  Somewhere warm, sunny, and carefree.

11. "The best things are nearest: breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of God just before you." Robert Louis Stevenson. Look around you right now and tell us about something essential or beautiful very near you that you take for granted every day.
 My family, even though some has passed on.  I just assume those here with me will always be here. 

12. Just for a bit o' fun, click here ( and then report your Irish name.
Mine is "Caitlin Collins"   Strange because my grandmother's 2nd husbands last name was Collins.  It is also the name of the town where she lived most of her life and is now where my Mom lives.
