Love a parade? This year you can watch New York City’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade online. Here’s how.

Truth be told, I’ve a wee bit of the Irish in me. And, from time to time, I love pint or five while I watch a good parade.

So, at 11 a.m. Saturday, March 16, I’ll be watching from Baltimore as New York City’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade—the world’s largest and oldest—steps off at 5th Avenue and 44th Street and heads north to 79th Street where it finishes at the American Irish Historical Society at East 80th Street.

The New York parade—which first stepped off there in 1762—takes about six hours to complete, ending around 5 p.m. (I generally end much sooner depending, of course, on the power of the pints.)

As a Sr. Writer at T. Rowe Price, I work with a group of the best copywriters around. We belong to the broader creative team within Enterprise Creative, a part of Corporate Marketing Services. _____________________________________________ A long and winding road: My path to T. Rowe Price was more twisted than Fidelity’s green line. With scholarship in hand, I left Kansas at 18 to study theatre in New York. When my soap opera paychecks stopped coming from CBS and started coming from the show’s sponsor, Proctor & Gamble, I discovered the power of advertising and switched careers. Over the years I’ve owned an ad agency in San Francisco; worked for Norman Lear on All in the Family, Good Times, Sanford and Son, and the rest of his hit shows; and as a member of Directors Guild of America, I directed Desi Arnaz in his last television appearance— we remained friends until his death. In 1988 I began freelancing full time didn’t look back. In January 2012 my rep at Boss Group called and said, “I know you don’t want to commute and writing for the financial industry isn’t high on your wish list, but I have a gig with T. Rowe Price in Owings Mills…” I was a contractor for eight months, drank the corporate Kool-Aid, became a TRP associate that August, and today I find myself smiling more often than not.
