Right back at ya", although obviously tailored for a "man's" influences, here's ...:

An Irish Toast From Grif

Here's to cheating, stealing, fighting, and drinking.

If you cheat, cheat death.

If you steal, steal a womans heart.

If you fight, fight for a brother.

If you drink, drink with me my friend !!

Hope this helps.

The Jig's Up

The leprechauns are laughing
For their day is finally here
The legends and the folklore
Seep through the atmosphere
The dancers are all ready
An Irish jig is in the air
The walls of the pubs are bursting
There is not an empty chair
As the night becomes the morning,
The barman leads the song
From Danny Boy to Irish Eyes
The serenade goes on.
Then a husky voice is heard to say
Make this your final stein
For St. Patrick's day is over
At it's time Gentlemen it's time.

Serve the Guinness with reverence

What man with a soul
would choose a beer over the Guinness.
Thin and pale, beer, like a callow youth,
rushes headlong into the glass,
squirted flippantly, half noticed,
subordinate to the barman's chatter.
But the Guinness -
ah, the Guinness - demands respect,
gives itself up slowly,
draws the barman into its blackness,
seduces him to silence.
As if in annoyance at being disturbed,
it billows dark storm clouds of Celtic passion;
calming slowly.....slowly... to black and white,
light and darkness,
the seen and the hidden.
It is the drink of the Irishman,
honestly bewildered by his own existence,
bubbling brightly away in ancient metaphor,
the bitter, still promise of death ever lurking beneath.
Yes, serve the Guinness with reverence,
it is the pouring out of the Celtic soul.

(Basil Hall 2000)

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
