    Too Funny. You must have the touch of Irish.

    I thought I had the Irish Flu yesterday.
    I finally felt better around noon.

    I heard about a fatality at the Guiness Brewery. ONe of the workers fell into the vat and drowned. The widow was distraught and the crew confused, since the worker got out to pee 5 times before he drowned.

    My chief regret is that guinness here in the USA just isn't the same as in Dublin, I have drank it in several countries and theres no place like Dublin Ireland for a good pint.
    The only Guinness I'm able to find in my town in Colorado these days is brewed in Canada. It's not bad but doesn't taste the same as the Dublin brewed stuff.

    Well, it's only because I value the input of this forum that I just went out and bought two different 6-packs of Guinness.
    I told my wife that I was doing this for her...

    Yeah, she laughed, too!

    Well, I've just started my heart health program tonight...not bad so far.

    rodc13...thanks for the health tip.

    Old news, they've been giving it to women who just gave birth in Ireland for years for nutritional purposes. The dang stuff is like motor oil, and tastes like a health shake... but I'm just bitter... this was my brew of choice before I gave it all up.

    CCMan sez...

    Too Funny. You must have the touch of Irish.

    Well, ya know... God created whiskey to keep the Irish from ruling the world...

    I somehow inherited the drinking gene in my family... I drink more in a week than my entire family drinks in a year. Not that I have a problem with that... but I always think of a quote I have heard attributed to both Dean Martin and Lyndon Johnson... "I don't know how non-drinkers do it... they wake up in the morning, and that's the best they are gonna feel all damn day..."

    My Mom was funny... when I was a teenager, she would buy 1 (one) 12 oz can of Miller Lite... she would drink a third of it, and put it in the fridge. The next day, she would drink another third... on the third day, she would dump it out because it was too flat to drink.

    Now I ask you... what is the point of 4 ounces of beer...? When Mom was in the mood to "whoop it up" (once or twice a year), she'd have one Tom Collins... and drink it all...

    This example of moderation was completely wasted on a young PointnClick... by the time I was 16, I had come home often enough in other people's clothing that my parents no longer asked to smell my breath...

    As the proverb says:

    An Irishman is never drunk, as long as he can hold onto one blade of grass to keep from falling off the face of the earth . . .
