    Raise your hand if you've kissed the Blarney Stone.

    I have not got there, yet. But, my Mom has kissed it.

    On bucket list. With Ireland as a country. My sister has kissed it.

    If by "blarney stone" you mean the toilet, and if by "kissing" you mean "throwing up into" then yes, I kissed the blarney stone on Sunday morning after a saturday night of debauchery celebrating Irish people's awareness day.

    I can't raise my hand because I didn't, but I've been to the castle. For those who haven't seen the place, kissing the stone involves laying on your back with your head below your feet. Which, on that day, meant getting hit in the face with rain. We had the kids in tow, my wife wanted to kiss the stone, and I decided she could do it on behalf of the whole family.

    It was raining on the coast of Ireland?

    Funny thing is, we were the country for nine days and that day was the only one with significant rain. The rest of the time it was glorious (if a bit cool for the Florida-acclimated). While September is one of the drier months over there, that's still a pretty good luck of the draw.

    Really good.

    Haven't made England, Scotland, Wales or Ireland, yet, but when we go it will definitely be August. It will be the crowdest and most expensive time to go, but since we will want to walk as much as possible, we would like to limit our chances for rain.

    It will almost certainly be between 5-8 years from now and will try our best to make it at least four weeks in length. It will fly by fast enough.

    Must go to Ireland and find the castle with my family name, which is in the south central part of the country. Probably not actual relatives, but still, it's something.
