Here he Comes to save the Day.

Saying for the day: Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza. ~Dave Barry

Remember the old Mighty Mouse cartoon when things got really desperate then you would hear the words “ Mighty Mouse is on his way” and you knew everything would be alright.
That’s what I want my Friday entries to be. The good news that help is on the way.
We are threatened by Global Warming on the one hand and dependence on foreign oil on the other. Our economy is a shambles. Gas is up to $4.00 a gallon. Congress is too busy playing politics.
Never fear Mighty Mouse is on his way.
I am scouring the net, reading all the scientific journals I can find and where I see light I will share it with you.
Today I have found a technique which if fully utilized would save the equivalent of three million tons of coal a year. That’s a lot of CO2 not going into the atmosphere.
Further this is not an experimental technique. It is already in use by a British company. Indeed a British Company, Pursuit Dynamics, is marketing this remarkable invention.
What is this magic contraption? It is a wort heater that fires steam at the wort at 3000 feet per second.
If you don’t know what wort is your not much of a beer drinker. Wort is what you get after you soak your malted barley in water. Then it has to be heated to get rid of impurities.
Enter the stream blaster. It breaks the wart in droplets which heat twice as fast cutting the brewing time and using only half as much energy as regular brewing.
At the moment Shepherd Neame, Britain’s oldest brewery , is using the technique to make its Spitfire Lagers and ales. With no complaints from the customers.
As energy costs increase more and more breweries will convert.
As this happens you can do your part to help end Global Warming by only drinking beer that says it is steam blasted on the can.
All beer drinkers need to make this little sacrifice to save the world.
Now tell your favorite bar that they need to import Spitfire Lager and why.
Beer drinkers of the world we are counting on you.

#### News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal. Sergeant York left for Canada on the milk train this morning. He is convinced that the local whale sighting is a hoax just like the White Rabbit. He shared with Eino that the White Rabbit was malfunctioning when he saw it. The eye just kept blinking and blinking and blinking. As a RCMP he notices things like that. Tommy UK told Eino that the rabbit might have had something in its eye. In any case the RCMP is gone back to check on his own whale.

The Liar’s Club announced the rules for their summer internet contest.
1. The stories can be of any length.
2. The story must be about some creature that can’t exist like a dragon or an elf or any of hundreds of fantasy creatures.
3. It must include a small town.
4. It must seem plausible on the face of it.
5. Judging will be by a local ( loco) panel.
6. There will be a Best Liar’s Plaque and a ten dollar gift certificate for the winner.
7. Stories must be submitted by July 20, 2008.
8. Entries should be e-mailed to
The Grand and Glorious Liar Buddy East hopes this years entries will be as good as last years.
The judging panel hopes one will be far better than the others since they had such a hard time judging last years.

Did Sgt York's horse ride the milk train too? Is he still a Mounted Police if he doesnt use a horse?

In the wine world we are working hard to reduce our carbon footprint. One of the ideas is to used recycled bottles or glass to make the bottles however becuase wine is expensive many people are against it. I hope we can come up with better alternatives soon. Wine in a box is just not that fun but an alternative.

Mighty Mouse is here to save the day - I can so remember lying on the floor with my head propped on my arm watching that on TV!

Interesting story on the beer - I can hear the commercial now - save the world by drinking steam blasted beer - catchy!

Want to help the economy? If car taxes were assessed on the SIZE of the vehicle one drove (as they are commercially)there would be one heck of a lot less gas guzzling SUVs on the road. I think anyone who drives one of them is pretty much wearing a sign that says, "Hi! I am socially irresponsible."

HEY! Where's my FIRST comment of the day??? Wellllll.... what I HAD said was...

I'm so sorry... I don't drink beer. I guess I can help save the world. And I'm not sure I can do plausible fantasy. I'm not sure I can DO fantasy... but I'm gonna give it a go! I will be MORE than happy if I simply refrain from boring you to death!

Good news Friday? Now what's not to love about that. I have to tell you I am teetotal so can't help with this one. I'll have to do something else to save the world I'm afraid.

I had heard that Brazil had plenty of ethanol made from sugar cane, but they couldn't export it to us, because there is such a tax the US puts on it. Go figure. Oh well, maybe the wort thing will work out. I don't drink much, but I do have a beer from time to time. I'll see if I can find that kind of beer...and actually try and figure out how that saves the world other than not thinking about it all that much for a few hours. We were away from tv and internet for a few days while visiting our first born who refuses to have internet connection in her home, and has only recently allowed tv. It is located in a sort of out of the way place and we really didn't watch very much. Anyway, to get back to this...I didn't know they were trying to impeach President Bush while we were away for like 3 days! Wow! And my favorite news reporter died suddenly. And how is it that bashing the wort saves so much they use the wort for fuel or something? I'm so confused.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
