Way I figure it, if blogging is easy enough for some of my friends, I can do it too.

So here I have created my own little section of cyberspace called "around the keg." Anyone who is my friend can tell you that that is the most comfortable space for friends and conversation that I can think of. Why? Beer.

Beer is America! Beer thumbs its nose at convention! Beer is loud laughter, passionate debate, and chicks in bikinis. Beer gives chubby dudes a chance. Beer is for workers and people who enjoy a good joke. Beer is for men and women who find endless humor in a solid fart. Best of all, beer is, according to an NIH study, the most-consumed beverage in the United States, consumed more by college-educated folks than any other beverage. Beer is great political conversation...beer was at the cornerstone of the Declaration of Independence. One of my favorite beers says it all: Sam Adams.....Brewer....Patriot. Oh, Sam was a patriot, alright. But he was a beer drinker first.

Join me around the keg for politics, literature, movies, or whatever strikes your fancy. Just be sure to mention beer in your missives.

And beer is good for all ages... even a 2-year old can pump the keg if she puts all her weight into it! (hypothetically, of course).

Congrats on the Blog!

A few quotes:

"For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can't readily accept the God formula, the big answers don't remain stone-written. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command or faith a dictum. I am my own God. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.
- Charles Bukowski

Women! Can't live with them...pass the beer nuts.
- Norm (Cheers)

Hana: What on Earth is a 'barbeque'?
Hel: A primitive tribal ritual featuring paper plates, elbows, flying insects, encrusted meat, hush puppies, and beer.
Hana: I daren't ask what a 'hush puppy' is.
Hel: Don't.
- Trevanian from the novel "Shibumi"

Religions change; beer and wine remain.
- Harvey Allen

Cover a war in a place where you can't drink beer or talk to a woman?
Hell no!"
- Hunter S. Thompson (1939 - 2005)

Marriage is based on the theory that when man discovers a brand of beer exactly to his taste he should at once throw up his job and go work in the brewery.
- George Jean Nathan (1882 - 1958)

All the fat guys watch me and say to their wives, 'See, there's a fat guy doing okay. Bring me another beer.'"
-Mickey Lolich

Well-said, Talented Dishwasher! And as American Hero, Founding Father and all-around great guy Ben Franklin said, Beer is evidence that God exists and wants us to be happy.
