The weather is here… Wish you were beautiful

… or something like that.  I have no idea what we did to deserve this but I’m not gonna ask around because I don’t want to know.  It’s been in the mid to upper 90’s for the last week or so.  The 4th  of July is notoriously hot and usually stormy in St. […]

Charlotte’s Bath

Sure, the abbreviations for all of those M states may get a little confusing, and yes, there is a St. Louis, Mich., but the Cardinals are from St. Louis, Mo.

According to social media reports, the shirts, which first appeared in late February, were pulled from some stores soon after.

After the Civil War, Adolphus went to work for his father in law, and soon attained controlling interest in the brewery. He introduced the Budweiser brand in 1876.
