      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Recommended Posts

December 5, 2008 marks the 75th anniversary of the repeal of prohibition. Today, make sure you give thanks for those who sacrificed so much to secure our right to drink freely. :brew:

When my grandmother was 12, both of her parents were killed in an industrial accident. There was no social or corporate support for her or her five younger siblings. They went to work cleaning houses and were soon hired by a prominent Chicago family.

My great aunt once told the story of the end of prohibition. There were many long faces in the household she worked for. The family business was going to have to be totally restructured.

 

I don't drink much anymore. A glass of cheep Merlot is just fine.

No arguement here.

Have you written your congressional delegation?

 

Probably better to not have yourself marked that way actually.

almost no need, really - each year i have my senior classes pick a political issue they care about it, research it, and write their delegates - legalizing pot is the issue de jur of at least 1/3rd of them :)

 

course, i'm not certain if their eloquence is quite up to the task...

From Wikipedia:

Velour is a plush, knitted fabric or textile. It is usually made from cotton but can also be made from synthetic materials such as polyester. Velour is used in a wide variety of applications, including clothing and upholstery.

Velour is a knit fabric, allowing it to stretch. It combines the stretchy properties of knits such as spandex with the rich appearance and feel of velvet. Velour is used in dancewear for the ease of movement it affords, and is also popular for warm, colorful casual clothing. When used as upholstery, velour often is substituted for velvet.

I am the quintessential beer snob. I can be no other way.

 

I suppose you have a problem with "HEFEWEIZEN" too!

Do you even need to ask that question? "Beer is clear, murky is quirky."

Mind you, a beer can be dark and clear. Cloudy beverages are not beer.

Well Dr.Brew,now that you've cleared up the issues or dark and clear,i guess i'll go buy some Mississippi Mud "Black and Tan" beer,and if we ever meet for a beer i'll drink yours!

 

Read the frist 100 pages of "THE LAST DIVE" and drank 3 murky beers, although it jumps around alot,it has some funny shit in it "lets talk about the zoo" or "What? this tape again! or Did i missed a particuiar scene?" and covers the history of diving and the who's who in the diving world,the Martini law, the issues of dive partners (my tanks all had dings in them for me beating the butt of my dive knife on them in a attempt to get my diving partners attention)and the draw of the unknown and absolute zero gravity has on you!

 

I had i dream last night that i was flying,no plane,no wings,but just like superman,but at times out of control witch is what its like in heavy sea's!

I happen to enjoy reliving in my dreams the best of all the things i done Sking,Surfing,Diving,Climbing,Rappeling Biking,Sex... the jobs and life i've had,and people i've met and places i've been!

It's interesting that several states: Kentucky, Tennessee, Kansas, and Texas to name a few, never ratified the 21st Amendment lifting prohibition. Those states still have dry parrishes/counties, which pretty much guarantees that their borders remain an unbroken Maginot line of watering holes.

Rite Aid sells Fat Tire most of the time $11.99 a half rack but since you don't like Hefeweizen,I'm shocked that a "BEER SNOB" like you would lower your self to a murky Fat Tire !
