BostonStrong?

So a Bruins fan takes his frustration out on a Leaf fan after the Bruins lose game 2 at the Garden, by sucker punching him and knocking him unconscious and then running away. Apparently this was unprovoked. Bruins fans have a rep for being tough and nasty to the visiting fans that go there. Especially Leaf fans! But this is fkn pathetic and pisses me off. Boston Strong?? Gimmie a break.

almost 21 yrs. ago.....

(that's hard to digest sometimes) I went to see the Grateful Dead to help cure a bad case of attitude sickness......at sea level nonetheless. No alcohol or coca that weekend; the meds were holy and righteous though ( and long lasting - 21 yrs later and still going strong).

Worked like a charm! :))))))))))))

A cure for whatever ales (ails) you!

"LA PAZ — A Bolivian brewer has come up with an innovative solution for quenching thirst and coping with altitude sickness: coca beer, based on the same leaf used to make cocaine.

Coca has only recently acquired its nefarious reputation: for millennia, people living along the Andes mountains have chewed coca leaves. The juice from the leaves has a mild stimulant effect, easing stomach pain and helping people from the lowlands cope with altitude sickness, known locally as soroche.

Visitors to high mountain cities like La Paz -- located 3,600 meters (11,800 feet) above sea level -- often rest and drink coca tea to deal with soroche. Now there is another option."

(For the rest of the story go to French Press Agency)

A fine German pilsner with the addition of coca leaves -- try it on your next trek above tree line. Make sure to pack out your empties!

Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for "fifth of May") is a celebration held on May 5. It is celebrated in the United States and regionally in Mexico.

Never mind why it is celebrated, it is an excuse to have a party. The most highly favored drink of this day is the Margarita. After many a devoted experiment, and admitting this is highly subjective, here is my time-tested recipe for the most exceptional Margarita on the planet. Don't knock it until you've tried it!

1.5 oz. of your favorite premium tequila (I lean toward Sauza silver these days)
.5 oz. Cointreau
.5 oz. Grand Marnier
1 ripe, juicy, medium size lime

Cut the lime into 8 slices, squeeze 7 thoroughly into the shaker.
Pour the three liquers into the shaker.
Add ice as desired
Cover the rim of the solid glass tumbler with kosher salt if desired
(I always skip that step, don't need the sodium)
Cover and shake thoroughly
Garnish with the 8th slice of lime

In this proportion this is a pretty stiff drink. Know your limits and hand the car keys to somebody else if you're having more than 2.

Have a happy and safe Cinco de Mayo!

Yeah, well, we all hope it's just ugly rumours. It would be too sad to contemplate.

The Queen of Versailles

Did anyone watch that documentary on Bravo last night, "The Queen of Versailles"? About the family building the biggest house in America? I admit, I got sucked into Bravo's programming way back when they started "The Real Housewives of ________," but I'm getting a little sick of their ongoing formula for televised drivel. This doc really got my blood boiling, particularly the level of arrogance of David Siegel, owner and proprietor of Westgate Resorts.

The extent to which the Richie Riches of this country seem to feel like the kings and queens of the universe makes me sick. Reminds me of pre-Depression era America.
