National Beer Can Appreciation Day

On this day, January 24th, 1935, the first can of beer was sold in VA. By the end of the year, 37 breweries were selling canned beer. Take a moment and think for a second about how this occurred with no internet.  No mass connection or tweets bragging…

It’s National Hot Buttered Rum Day!

Musings on Merlot

For many, the end of daylight savings is cause for upset.  The lost daylight hours.  The dark evening commute surrounded by unnamed head and tail lights.  Colder weather.  Shorter days.  Hibernation mode.  The stress of the impending holidays.  The list goes on… But not for us!  It’s cause…

Roll ‘Em Back
