They’re not so golden!  Here’s just one example: on my way home from school today, I noticed a Dodge Ram.  This is the first Hemi-powered vehicle I have seen since August.  A mixture of joy and something akin to pride in “my” new country swept over me, i.e., I’m joyful that Ireland seems to have so few. 😛

Superficial analysis of my emotions leaves me convinced that I am becoming more and more eccentric.  I attribute this to my advancing years.
