I was thinking to myself just last Sunday what on earth could have possessed August A. Busch to imagine that Scottish Draught Horses pulling an English dray wagon guided by two men in Bavarian Livery accompanied by a Croatian spotted dog had to do with an American beer marketed under a stolen Austrian brand name.
Quite a mouthful. Interesting how so many varied identities can come together under one brand.

But America is the Melting Pot.

Too bad about the youngest Bush. I read recently he is having troubles with the law, a former girlfriend, and substance abuse.

Shame.

Must be Hocir demons.

Damn You Auto Correct!

As I pointed out, depends on your tastes.



My water comes from an artesian spring, about 100 feet from my house. Sweet, a light hint of minerals, straight out of the well and into the tap.

Perfect for a splash into some good Scotch.

Tasty!

And no place for a K3!
My water is from a hand pounded sand point down forty feet into the lake water able. Spring fed lake and spring fed water able. No iron. The lake is classified by the USGS as "calcareous" meaning the water is ph neutral. Also,very clear in the lake. About thirty feet for a standard white Secchi disc clarity test. And a splash of tap water is just right with a glass of scotch. No ice.

Auto Correct changed water table to "water able." pretend there is a letter "t" where it belongs.

{There, fixed!}

That must be good for the Land of 10,000 Lakes. Don't many of the wells produce hard water up there? I know many places I go to have hard water. Blech! Leaves you feeling slimy after a shower.

Hocir is probably at work in those areas!

Normal shallow well water in northern Minnesota is very hard, filled with iron, lousy tasting. We are lucky.

The Busch antics are our own local soap opera.

But they're ours and we love them.

I suppose I should learn to modify EXIF data to hide my shame.

Edit photos to hide EXIF. Same technique to avoid Google's data sweeping.

Single malt or blend? I like Johnny Walker Red. Had a bottle of Blue as a Christmas gift from Mrs. waterfall 2.0 a while back. Sipped it for eight months. Never spoil good Scotch with water, soda or ice. I can't buy a K3 until I get another bottle of JW Blue.

Blueberry lager? Sounds revolting.
It is, still have a bottle of it left in the fridge. Everyone avoids it like it was rat-poison.

Thread will not die until we all surrender. This is the Last Stand for What I do not know, but it is certainly fun.
