From the book Titan.
"Rumors soon drifted about town that John (Rockefeller) had taken away the girl's virginity. Whatever the truth, the Millers a raised an unholy ruckus about the romance. In one of the less prophetic judgements in parental history, they argued that they didn't want their dau...

The biggest difference between Wrights and Benton's or any other form of high quality bacon from the supermarket stuff like oscar meyer etc is how much water is contained.
Richards is another bacon that I have found to be very good. You can tell how good bacon is generally by how much grease i...

I have no problem with this feeling. Saying the ordinance would have been ineffective is much different than the people in the council meeting saying they don't like gays. Then the guy from Christian Life gets up and describes what occurs in the act of gay sex and why it causes HIV/AIDS....

The problem is, you start mixing it up too much and you'll wind up with a different drink other than an old fashioned.
Instead, try a sazerac.
My own preferences:
3 oz Bulleit Rye
3/4 oz of homemade simple syrup 2/1 sugar/water on stove
2 dashes peychaud bitters
mist or coat glass ...
