I don’t drink alcohol! 18 Years and counting! I had my share. There is NOTHING wrong w/ alcohol. It is just not meant for everyone!

My response below was due to this comment! It’s all about self control.

This has been proven by the medical community, it has NOTHING to do with self control/will power. Also, a person who is addicted to alcohol, drugs, ect have a different body chemistry. When One is put into the body, it craves for more. The social drinker does not experience or possess those qualities.

An addiction is practically a predestination. Some people are more prone to it than others. They only need a substance to be addicted to.
Look at the late singer Amy Whinehouse. Take away the coke and they get a drinking problem or a smoking habit. And it never goes away.
You are an alcoholic for the rest of your life, even after you are dry for over 20 years. One glass and you’re back.

True,sounds like you have first hand experience with the subject and/or knowledge[a counselor ?] about it! There is NO cure for the afflicted,only a daily reprieve contingent on ones “spiritual condition”!

One addiction can lead to another……….I am presently a FLASHAHOLIC!

If people were more like Dogs the world would be a better place. There would be much less conflict and violence,instead there would be true harmony and grace.

If Doutzen Kroes is a “typical Dutch girl” then Denise Richards is a typical girl from the US of A.

And they look like they could be sisters.

Had 2 Natural Ice cans while I watched some car racing. Will have some Old Crow later tonight as Wifey and I check out a Blu-ray film…

There ain’t no such thang other than by selecting a barrel. Perhaps you mean George Dickel #8 bourbon.


Well Ill be jiggered, youd be right. Same for the 12 too I spose? Im on my 3rd or so bottle of the No8, and Ive had the same of the No12. Its not very common here, only one bottle shop (Liquor store, Offy(offie?)) carries it. Interesting that its not Bourbon, I had thought that distinction a place and I never bothered with it but instead its Whisky due to charcoal filtering prior to bottling.

I dont often drink but I do enjoy making my own just because I can. Today was a rough day at the mill so a shot or two of home made mead did the trick. Other times I do enjoy a good rum.

Right now I'm drinking Vintage Seltzer. I bought a few cases from Costco. I haven't had sugar sweetened soda in over a year.

Unfortunately not true, many companies use it despite of very low sugar prices…

Our local Coca Cola company switched gradually over a few years to HFCS and now cola tastes like S*IT but most people don’t notice it as they got accustomed to a new taste. Other local brands and pepsi still use sugar…

Society is like a pot full of nuts and bolts, finest pieces always end up on the bottom...

In Australia we still get the Coke with cane sugar. Same as Mexican Coke apparently, and thats the same as the original recipe. Or so Ive read.

Thats about $50 here, not sure if its the same version though. Same as the Willet you mention, how many variants of them do they make? Most would not be available here, and I would think some of the lesser ones get a flash bottle here too to mark them up.

I pay $52-60 for my No12 Dickel too, the No8 I can find for $44-50.

All of the above. Weve had it good lately, our dollar was worth more than the US$ or close to equal for a couple of years there, but its not normal its usually around mid US$0.70’s.

Still a great thread! In the meantime my son is 4 and a half years old, and I'm having another Cherry Coke, the label indeed mentions just sugar, no HFCS:
