    ... and yes, my grandpa (born 1885) made whiskey... and beer, which was considered a normal family beverage for meal-time. ... and he made his own fiddle.

    AND TONIGHT'S TREE JOKE:

    This little skinny guy applies for a job as a lumberjack. "Sorry", says the head lumberjack, eyeing the man up and down, "You're just too small!"
    "Give me a chance to show you what I can do", the guy pleads, "You won't regret it!"
    "Okay", says the boss. "See that giant oak over there? Let's see if you can chop it down."
    Half an hour later, the mighty oak is felled, amazing the boss.
    "Where'd you learn to cut trees like that?" he asks.
    "The Sahara Forest"
    "You mean the Sahara Desert"
    "Sure, if that's what they call it now!"

    This is a song by Grant Hart, formerly of Hüsker Dü.

    Never mind the words, just hum along and keep on going...
