Pop on over to the White Rabbit's Blog and read this post, ESPECIALLY if you are even remotely considering going to LEAP YEAR.

Ireland is not Cuba. In fact before the recession, Ireland was wealthy as fuck and Irish people could afford brand new cars from places as far away as Japan. Why Hollywood insists that we all drive chuck-a-booms or hitch rides on trucks transporting chickens is beyond me.
P.S. Happy St. Patrick's Day to everyone!! Have a good one! ( i know a day early, but i'm at work and i won't be tomorrow. Yay for national holiday!)
