You had drunk teachers? Wow! In the Chicago public schools, we only had drunk security guards. Older siblings had run the teachers off years before we got there........ No wonder you're such a thoughtful, well spoken fellow today Mr Ha!

DW isn't sold on the theme yet, but these things sometimes take time to sell.
That sounds so cool!

During the turmoil the market is in, I believe you should be well diversified with your liquid assets - bourbon, scotch, tequila, rum, vodka, gin, quality brew.

I had some rum recently that was really good but I didn't catch the name. Any suggestions for smooth rums for sipping neat?

Had 3 fingers of Lamb's Original Navy Rum late last night. Very good flavor.
