The Duchess of Cambridge, alongside her husband Prince William, attended the St. Patrick's Day military parade in Aldershot, England today, where the pair handed out shamrocks to the Irish Guards at Mons Barracks, and apparently admitted to some of the men in service that they currently disagree in their hopes for the gender of their first born!
Irish soda bread is so delicious, it should be enjoyed more than once a year! Traditional Irish soda bread contains just a few basic ingredients, so here's a recipe where you can make your own in a matter of minutes. Customize the recipe with caraway seeds, raisins or other dried fruit. Don’t have buttermilk? Substitute 1 cup milk (or non-dairy substitute) and 1 Tbsp lemon juice; let sit in a cup for 5 minutes to curdle before adding.
· 2 cups flour
· 1 Tsp baking soda
· 1 pinch salt
· 1 cup buttermilk
Heat a skillet or griddle over medium low heat. Stir all the ingredients together until mixed, knead on a floured surface and form into a flattened round (about ½ inch thick). Sprinkle flour in hot skillet, and bake the dough for about 8 minutes on each side. Cut into wedges, and enjoy warm.

St. Patrick's Day is going to be bruuuutal this year, as it totally lands on a Sunday!
While this is good for getting your celebration on early, it's not so good for those of us who have to come into work on Monday! Don't worry, though, we've got Dr. Yael Varnado here with tips to keep you feeling great — and make sure you don't call out from work because of your poor decisions! LOLz!
Just follow this plan:
· Plan ahead: This means hydrating before heading out and being sure you are hitting the parades and parties on a full stomach!
· Know how you’re getting home before you leave the house – have a plan that is safe and secure that you won’t have to think about while out celebrating.
· Prepare for your arrival home and the morning after: eye cream and bottled water in fridge, alarm clock set for Monday!
· Avoid any green body glitter, hair color or anything else that will impress at a parade but not in an office!
It's a good thing that Google's augmented reality glasses aren't available this St. Patrick's day, because we'd need time for the steep learning curve to discipline ourselves with how to properly use it!
This cleverly HIGHlarious video (above) is the perfect example of how every beta tester out there with Google Glass is going to handle this Sunday's festivities!
Is it weird that no matter how awful this guy's holiday gets, we still think the technology looks pretty cool?? Nah! We'd wear these suckers in a heartbeat if Google sent us some (not so much the talking shoe)!
One of which was the first ever Milestone Award for musical ingenuity and innovation!
BUT, it seems the audience was NOT very happy that Biebs beat out Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars for the title, as he was BOOED while getting up on stage to accept the award AND when he wrapped up his VERY defensive acceptance speech!
Ch-ch-check out the cringe-worthy incident (above)!
Ooooof, and you can tell that when the booing starts, people from Bieber's camp try and cheer louder to mask it, which only makes it worse.
Hmmm we wonder if this mass negative reaction to Justin be about a certain abandoned monkey? Or are people getting tired of hearing him sing the word "baby" for the 1000th time?
And are you kidding us with this speech, Biebs? Way to NOT sound in the LEAST bit grateful... he even sounds pissed when he's thanking people!
Siiighhh. Well, whatever the reasons for JB's super strange speech, we are NOT impressed. And neither, it seems, was the crowd.
