Corned Beef and Cabbage

There are those who can trace their ancestry back hundreds and hundreds of years.  I am not among them.  Yes, my maternal Grandmother's father came over from Ireland when he was a child, but that's all I've got beyond stories and jumbled memories from a childhood filled with a storyteller's stories...you know, a mind that takes facts and turns them…
