1. SpellingWe received a blunt comment on the poor spelling around here and - have to admit - I really don't care that much but I do correct as I go along just as I will re-edit an past post if I feel like it.
This is really a blog about notes on beer and makes no effort to be "professional grade" and "world class". I live and die on the quality of my comments or the photography and not the placement of a comma. If that boils your brain, point out the error and I will correct - or you can find another place to read, perhaps your own well spelled blog.
2. GiftingBeer related gifts and items for review and gladly accepted. I'm no fool. We have a panel of folk who gladly participate in the reviewing process. We are fair and impartial...and we like beer.
3. The Franklin Quotation.We know he didn't write that:
If you search long enough, you'll find that perhaps some ingenious/desperate brewer lifted it from this 1779 letter Franklin sent to the AbbÃ© AndrÃ© Morellet, which describes the joy not of beer, but of wine:But we don't care. He probably said it 576 times."We hear of the conversion of water into wine at the marriage in Cana as a miracle," Franklin wrote. "But this conversion is, through the goodness of God, made every day before our eyes. Behold the rain which descends from heaven upon our vineyards; there it enters the roots of the vines, to be changed into wine -- a constant proof that God loves us, and loves us to be happy."
