I don't agree with the joke.....but you can notify the proper Mod that is most likely already monitoring me. Remember, I have two broken feet, a twisted knee that may require surgery, and a moderate to severe case of dementia. In Texas you can be sued and/or jailed for abuse of the elderly and/or infirm......Texas extradites from anywhere on earth....just keep it in mind!

"American beer is like having sex in a canoe........*******close to water."

Fox...in America that joke will get you a free Budweiser....drink up!

Neither do I - the US has many fine craft breweries that I hope to try out some day

And how did you manage to get yourself in such bad shape?

Accidents happen sooner or later if you are active...and I was always active...then when you are not so active you are even more accident prone with less agility.
The dementia just comes naturally...I was born with it. Just like my grandson in Oregon. He will be fine as long as he stays out of prison.

Here is an accident waiting to happen.....that Cheater Branch is not going to hold a really fat squirrel much longer.....and there are some really fat squirrels around here! That tiny screw is all that stands between the squirrel and the ground.



Regards!

Haven't heard from a Mod ....yet. Most of them are wholesome guys/gals and probably couldn't figure out the ******* ?? Only Racer would "get it" right away, and with his vocabulary he probably wouldn't consider it out of the ordinary?

Budweiser is sold under its native brand in the same kind of shops that sell Fosters (brewed in England). Fosters - that is one to give a miss. Actually there are quite a lot of nice English beers - and I did not come from here so it is not that my palate definition of 'good' is what I grew up with. Still like coopers, genuinely brewed in Adelaide (that's not in England).

Well, we Germans do have a world wide reputation of making some of the finest beers in existence, so I guess if I said we have the best beer in the world I would have more of a valid claim than, say, Sri Lanka, or Sweden, or New Zealand We also have the oldest brewery in continuous operation (Bayerische Staatsbrauerei Weihenstephan, established 1040). But it's obviously just a matter of personal preference, and mine lies elsewhere

There are plenty of very good beers, and most will suffice if you are hot and thirsty. There are some that are horribly bad too. Those you don't tend to forget. I bought some "Big Flats" at Walgreens once...$1.29 a six pack or something like that.....and even the raccoons refused it, and they will drink most anything.

The Dead Guy brew in Oregon really surprised me.....better than average by a wide margin.

It's 90F here currently and 75% humidity....a sweat box out there. I bet this squirrel would even go for a cold Big Flat right now!



He comes up for air every few minutes then goes back in with the lid closed. Not much on this earth will stop a hungry gluttonous squirrel.

Regards!

You know what they say:

The best beer is a free beer. The second best one is a cold one.

Not to mention malt liquor in some dive in the swampy backwaters of southern Georgia. But that was much more fun than the Bud.

With that dementia, I have already forgotten.

Has anyone ever made homemade beer? When I was a kid it was one of our favorite projects...and got us in a ton of trouble too. It was so easy to make....a can of Pabst Blue Ribbon malt that could be bought at the grocery store, some sugar, some water, and some dry yeast. It was drinkable in only 4 days and had a little buzz to it. The flavor is what I recall most...it was smooth with good carbonation...lots of little bubbles. A pale yellow and very mellow without any bitterness.

I got in so much trouble making that stuff...but never gave it up...until we found a supplier of the bottled beer that would sell to us.

Regards!

Quite a few people up here make their own beer and wine, not all of it legal shall we say. A little bit of this and a little bit of that and ferment for a week. The local store ran out of sealift pop and the fly-in cans (255ml) are now $6.18 a can. Yeast, sugar and Welch's Grape juice is significantly cheaper.

At $2.89 a bottle that Winking Owl wine at Aldis is cheaper than Welch's grape juice here. I don't care for wine much, but this Aldis stuff is not half bad...for shoe polish! Wine lovers give it good ratings.....for whatever that's worth?
