Happy Green Day! I couldn't resist sharing this image of what happens when you morph a leprechaunLeprechaun_1 with Michael Jackson. Keep your eyes peeled in your local Irish pub!

Anyway, a few specials of note:

* Gluten-free recipes for St. Paddy's Day. I'm intrigued by the "Frozen Green Girlscout Cocktail" (with Creme de Menthe). Or the Unusual Avacado Salad, which features walnuts and coriander seeds. Hmmm.

* St. Patrick's Day deals from Diabetesandtravel.com. Get your vibrating 12-alarm medication reminder for just $64.95! Or a Diabetic Insulin DI Case for vials and syringes -- looks like an eyeglass case! -- for just $19.95. You get the idea.

* Or some free diabetes eCards, including this one. The St. Paddy's day tie-in appears to be here.
