Enquiring Minds - Meme Week 29 PLUS Comment Giveaway + Winner

Oops- I jumped a week ahead to #30 when it should be #29.
Thanks for sharing last week about your names - the stories were fun to read. I think Jennifer get's my pick for the most unusual childrens' names.

The Winner from Enquiring Minds Week #28 is: tearyeyedstars. ejhtan- please pick a book from the Love Books List for Giveaway or remainging Christmas Giveaway Books and let me know your choice, your address and a choice of bookmarks if desired. Or let me know what credit you want or book you want from Book Depository if international.

This meme is hosted by Dollycas Thoughts for Thursdays - which are hard for me to make.  The goal is to get to know our fellow bloggers and visitors better. Each week Dolly asks some questions for us to answer and then link up. I am late doing the post but I am trying to to participate as I would like to learn more about blogger and follower friends.

1. What is your family background regarding nationality?
My father's family game from Holland and he is proudly one of the older living members of the Holland Society (males who are a descendant of an ancestor who lived in New Netherland before or during 1675).
My mother's family was German and English.
2. Have you ever eaten corned beef and cabbage, the traditionally meal of St. Patrick's Day or drank green colored beer?
We have often eaten corned beef and cabbage on St. Patrick's Day but my DH forgot this year. I do not think I ever drank green colored beer.

3. St. Patrick's Day is celebrated in many cities in the U.S. and around the world, are there any celebrations happening near you?
I found this a good question because we had a ladies dinner Monday night. Our leader shared some interesting facts about St. Patrick's Day including a quiz. One really interesting fact she gave: There are 34 million Irish (descendants I guess) in the US and only 4 million in Ireland! The biggest celebration is in New York.
Our City has a St. Patrick's Day Celebration with bed races. I attend as part of the Board of Realtors.
This is one of the participating beds.
Your turn to share: What is your family nationality? Do you eat corned beef and cabbage or drink green bear? Were there celebrations near you?
Enquire Comment Winners can choose a selection from  Valentine and "Love" books or the remaining Christmas Giveaway Books
Rules: a) Must be a follower; b) Share a comment on any (or all) of the three questions above.
Open internationally and an international winner may get a smaller book or a $5.00 GC if I decide the mailing is too much.
I will pick a Comment winner from all comments made by Friday, March 25 at 10PM central.
