People Who Throw Cigarette Butts-Why I Drink

Driving behind a car. Nice car, not super nice, but nice. He comes to a full stop at the stop sign. Long full stop, no one coming. WUCK? I think. Oh well, some people just follow the rules even in California. Then, not 200 yards down the road, he flicks out a lit cigarette butt […]

Bourbon Heritage Month-What it Means to Me

When I heard it was National Bourbon Heritage Month, I was astounded.  Mostly astounded that they had actually passed some Senate resolution at one point in time for that.  Or so interweb legend holds. But I thought about it.  Bourbon is my favorite hard liquor.  I could pretty much drink it to the exclusion of […]

Helloooo Ms. Arms are for Hugging – Why I Drink

So, “Ms” arms are for hugging bumpersticker peacenik woman. Ms. Liberal – It would be great if schools had money and the Pentagon had to hold a bake-sale. Oh I “Support the Right to Arm Bears” dumbass. So, am I, or my children, more likely to die in a nuclear war – or from you […]

"The harsh, useful things of the world, from pulling teeth to digging potatoes, are best done by men who are as starkly sober as so many convicts in the death-house, but the lovely and useless things, the charming and exhilarating things, are best done by men with, as the phrase is, a few sheets in the wind." ~H.L.

The Dangers of Thirst

"Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need - a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends, worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog, and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing." ~Jerome K.

"How solemn and beautiful is the thought that the earliest pioneer of civilization, the van-leader of civilization, is never the steamboat, never the railroad, never the newspaper, never the Sabbath-school, never the missionary -- but always whiskey!" ~Mark Twain
