    Yes GO is a proper shortening of George. George Washington, often signed his name with it.
    Hope you day is special too!

    Well as you can see by this thread its isn't celebrated by many and there are no real formal festivities so I doubt there will be feasting :(

    I would go for a red one with a rosey blush, sense the rose is the flower of the day. Its just so hard to find good dragon these days, enjoy!

    Fresh-killed dragon must be gutted, rinsed out, and hung until the skin feels about to slip off the carcass, or the meat isn't fit to eat. Cooks have been banished for failing to properly time the aging of the carcass to coincide with the feast. There is no wine that can properly be served with dragon - only ale or (in the 5-star castles) spiced mead. How has our culinary knowledge slipped to this low ebb? Next, someone will claim that unicorn is best served fresh-killed grilled with a dry rub, garnished with capers!!:yuck:
