Happy St. Patrick's Day!

As an Englishman living in Ireland since 1992, I have always enjoyed the celebration of Ireland's national day. A celebration of national identity is something we English sadly lack; I suspect many of my compatriots wouldn't even know when St George's day is! 

Although St George's claim to fame was the slaying of a solitary dragon, St Patrick went a step further in the battle of saints versus reptiles by banishing all the snakes from Ireland. Where he sent them is unclear. I suspect they all ended up in my former homeland, finding eventual employment as politicians, but we'll let that pass!

I find it curious that so many Irish people have a phobia of snakes, considering they live in a country totally devoid of them. But there's nothing logical about a phobia is there? Fortunately for those with an irrational fear of snakes, (or spiders, or anything); help is at hand. In the 1970's the creator's of Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) identified the thought processes behind the phobic response and developed an extremely rapid way to disrupt these patterns, leading to quick and permanent relief of the phobia in the majority of cases.
