    Wow, Iacocca was only 39 when the first Mustangs rolled onto the lots! He was just a kid!

    As for Jim Beam, they'll probably release a special-edition bourbon from the mopped-up mess. Maybe they'll call it Ash White, or something. I do prefer Jim Beam to Maker's Mark, but probably my favorite is Jack.

    The bummer for him was getting found 4F for service in WWII, but it turned into an opportunity, as it allowed him to get his Master's degree, and Ford held a job open for him when he finished in '46. But apparently, engineering wasn't his cuppa tea, but sales was where he wanted to be, and he totally made the most of it.

    I'm in reverse, I loved spirits, but only as a mixed highball. My favorite's Seagram's 7 and Cherry Coke, although I haven't hoisted any since the night my dad passed away. It's what happens when Dad was paying for the drinks....

    I don't look to any bottle to make me a better person. I just like the taste. Tequila, no. Gin, no. Vodka, maybe. Whisk(e)y, yes.

    Vodka, only with citrus juice. I wonder how many expat Eastern European have located themselves in Florida and California? Scotch, neat. Anything else tastes like cleaning fluid.

    Mild enough you don't need a chaser but strong enough to use for parts cleaning in a pinch. whiskey-catdaddy-629.jpg

    On the flip side, "I don't have a drinking problem. I drink. I get drunk. I fall down. No problem!"

    Another one from Facebook; "If you drink a fifth on the Fourth, you may not be able to go forth on the Fifth."

    Everything in moderation. If the drink is controlling you, rather than you controlling the drink, then you drink too much. Been there, and didn't realize it until someone spoke up.

    Have a happy and safe Fourth, everyone. If you drink, don't drive, etc.

    Some more drinking advice. Don't take Benadryl then drink a couple of scotch's. Woke up in our spare room, not knowing where I was, or how I got there. Sort of scary. At least I was still clothed.

    Never drink while you drive--it might get spilled.

    Hell, one time I took Sudafed, by itself, as directed. Slept over 18 hours, but my heart rate respirations and BP were very low, which concerned Mom enough to call 911. Fortunately, the EMT spoke with a doctor, and they agreed that as long as my rates stayed the same, I was fine, and I should sleep it off. But it was the last time I ever took Sudafed.
