A Real Beer Church

A Church of England parish actually has children hand out beer to the men in the service! I can die happy now.

** The old newspaper ad pictured here has nothing to do with this blessed congregation (except beer). I just liked the line, "It's the He-man brew - that the gals love too."

Twitter was in use in 1935!

I don't twitter (at least not yet). Despite my inability to post continuous short notes on my moment-by-moment movements, I found this 1935 version of Twitter pretty neat.

Bumper Balance

I'm not a big bumper sticker fan (at least on cars ... as a teenager I had some bumper stickers on a pair of shorts, along with a rubber spider web and assorted other nonsense. ... but I digress). These bumper stickers are hilariously understated and balanced. I especially like the one that reads, "In many contexts, "What would Jesus do?" is not a particularly helpful inquiry."

Back Alley Brilliance

I was in the alley behind The House Cafe, and a young punker I know named Mikey was hanging out there with an older, domestically challenged guy "named" Stix. Mikey expressed his disappointment in me for "dressing like a nerd again." He suggested I wear an old AC/DC shirt of his.I pointed out to Mikey that: A. I am a nerd, B. I'm old &, C. I used to dress just like Mikey. Stix came to my defense and pointed out that he too was old, but he was NOT a nerd AND the shirt he was wearing was the same sort of shirt as mine. I attempted to aline myself with Stix by opening up my shirt like his (exposing exteme whiteness). The picture here is the result of this great meeting of minds.
