Up in Darrington, Washington they call it "Corn Squeezins".
But they can't even spell 'whisky' properly

Ooh, Vegemite news. Didn't expect to see the word 'moonshine' appear:

Vegemite is Being Made Into Moonshine in Australia
Yep...made from brewer's yeast...

You got a bit of back-focus going there Racer. Fortunately there are 239 users on the Pentax Forums that will tell you how to correct it.

Those tarheels up in Darrington ought to know, though I am not sure where they get their notion of sunlight. It is my understanding that the adjacent Whitehorse Mountain shades the town for all by a few weeks during the summer.

Now we have a German living in Scotland telling an American how to spell.
Ain't the global village good!


Mr Fox, did you get the correct spelling off a Grant's Whisky bottle?

Or it could have been '100 Pipers'.

But Mr Fox is right. Americans don't know how to spell "whisky". Neither do the Irish

From the OED:

QuoteQuote:
In modern trade usage, Scotch whisky and Irish whiskey are thus distinguished in spelling; whisky is the usual spelling in Britain and whiskey that in the U.S.

And it took an Aussie to point that out.

Next the Kiwi from South Africa will chime in. Probably with a comment about cricket.

It is fascinating how communities would be established in places where the sun don't shine.

That would be in the first hour, with perhaps another 50 or so participants with each posting 20 or more times daily over the following five weeks.
