*The drinking story of the week: More older women are drinking hard. This story reminds me of dialogue in Cheech and Chong’s Nice Dreams: “You know what we should in vest in? An old age home for hippies. Cause, think about it, hippies have been around since the 60’s man, and now there isn’t really a hip place for them to go anymore. So, you know, it would be a home where they could smoke all the dope they’d want and listen to all the music they want, you know.”
**Here’s a subject I never would’ve inquired about: Beer brewing in Africa. I kinda snickered when I saw it, but it’s actually pretty interesting. I was especially intrigued to hear that Sorghum is a main ingredient in African beer. Sorghum is also pretty popular among gluten-free brewers. It actually makes a pretty good beer . . . and one of the few types I’ll drink at all any more.
According to historians, between 3000 and 2000 BC in Mesopotamia 40% of ALL grains produced were used for making beer. #history
