My first issue of Rolling Stone arrived yesterday. Yup, I’m now a subscriber to the gray haired hippie rag. I received a subscription when I signed up as a member of the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame during my visit last summer. The cost of getting my large family in the door was cheaper with a [...]

What better way to perk up on Monday morning than to read this: testosterone levels are falling across the United State. Researchers don’t know why. I’ll hazard a guess: Men are so over-sexed, they get tired of it and don’t want It as much, so their bodies decrease production of testosterone. There are all sorts [...]
Jesus is the same today as He was in the Gospels (Heb 13:8). He is full of pity, mercy, and compassion for You (see Ps 103:8). You may be in a desert now (Ps 126:4), but Jesus can turn even the hottest desert into a place of refreshment and rejoicing (Ps 126:1-6; Jer 31:9).
An abbreviated WE today. I have to leave at 6:15 for my son’s last junior football game. I’d like to sleep on the way, but I’m driving, so that makes it tough. I might take a snooze when I get there, but I’ll probably end up reading a bit and taking an exercise walk or [...]
Great site, if you’re dealing with keg issues. I rarely buy a keg anymore. The mess, the ice, the deposit, the 25% chance that the distributor will give you a defective pump, the heft (and corresponding bad back the next day). It’s simply not worth it. But I have to grapple with kegs at least [...]
Funny beer ads. A handful (some a bit racy). Make sure you watch this one until the end.
Guinness is going red. Daggone Commies. I can’t drink the stuff, incidentally. Might as well pour 10/40 down my throat.
I missed this little gem last summer: Zen Beer. Wisconsin micro brewer BluCreek is coming out with a new beer called Zen. The idea is to give a brewski the supposed health benefits of green tea. The brewery said the English-style India Pale Ale could be the first of its kind and has a subtle [...]
All sorts of good stuff out there today, but I’m pressed for time. A bullet approach: If you didn’t last night’s The Office (the only TV show I watch, though I’ve seen it only five times), download it from iPod for $1.99. Hilarious. It’s about the “outing” of a gay co-worker. From what I could [...]
Mark Steyn’s regular obituary column in the current issue of The Atlantic Monthly talks about Steve Irwin. It’s a very nice tribute to the Aussie, notwithstanding this blurb that cracked me (caution: vulgar material coming up): There was more than a grain of truth in the South Park episode in which the guys are lounging [...]
Possibly the best opening line of all news stories this week: A high school principal received a six-day suspension and a letter of reprimand for giving one of his students a wedgie. The rest of the story isn’t that great. I was hoping it was a form of corporal punishment, “Now, walk around like that [...]
When’s the last time I did a Wednesday Eudemon? It’s been awhile. Long-in-the-tooth readers might remember that this blog used be called “The Wednesday Eudemon.” That’s because I only posted on Wednesdays. That changed about 20 months ago, and so did the name. I’ve always liked finding studies that are common sense. This one isn’t [...]
