Beer is food..

Mysterious Ways

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!

Saturday 9: Mysterious Ways (1991)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.
1) In honor of St. Patrick's Day (this coming Tuesday), we're featuring one of Ireland's most successful exports, U2. What else is Ireland famous for?Leprechauns, padadas, Waterford crystal, Beleek china and of course, da Guinness!  :)
2) The Dublin studio where U2 recorded this song (and all of Achtung, Baby) is now a music store called Claddagh Records. U2 pilgrims from all over the world travel to the spot (Celia Street, Dublin 2). If we were to visit your neighborhood, are there any landmarks you could direct us to?LOL funny thing.  I'm the only one in the neighborhood with a rock out front. 
3) Lead singer Bono is rarely seen without his trademark sunglasses because he suffers from glaucoma. How is your vision? 20/20?
Awwww helllllls no!  I'm blind as a bat without my glasses.. 

4) Bono and wife Alison were married in 1982 and are still together today. Who is the longest-married couple you know?
 Country Dew and her hubby :)
5) When Bono inducted Frank Sinatra into the Grammy Hall of Fame, he applauded the older man's "swagger." Do you think you have swagger?Do I have swagger?  Silly munchkin.  Of COURSE I have swagger!
6) Bono has been honored by world leaders, including President Obama and Nelson Mandela and the Pope, for his philanthropy. Here's your turn to brag: tell us something you have received praise for recently.My swagger..
7) Clearly Bono is the most famous member of U2. Who else is in the band?
The Edge.  Something that I live on every day. LOL

8) On St. Patrick's Day, will you wear green?
I'm Irish.  And Catholic.  Does a bear shit in the woods?
9) Will you enjoy a glass of green beer or maybe a Shamrock Shake from McDonald's?
Shamrock shakes are delightful.  Delicious.  Delovely.  But oh my goodness they are full of bad stuff.  Unlike beer.  Beer is way better for you.  It's got hops.  Barley.  Water.  Wheat.  Beer is food...
