    As long as you have good whiskey you're not "unemployed", you're "Funemployed!!!"

    Re: How things got started

    Keep foul language to a minimum.
    No plotting against the Government on this discussion board.
    No opium smoking.
    No dirty pictures.

    Last but not least; We don't drink scotch here, and we don't drink cognac, armagnac, or any derivatives thereof. We don't taste lemon grass, fresh cut tobacco, or leche nuts in our bourbon, and we don't spout forth endless streams of redundant superlatives regarding our beloved liquor. If that's your trip ... move to New York, hyphenate your surname, and write a book about it. If it's not, you've come to the right place.

    Enjoy,

    *Oh well, 3 out of 4 ain't bad. As of a few weeks ago I had one strike against me, but we managed to create an amicable resolve. I will say this though - it has taken me a LONG TIME to get a feel for this board. It's quite sophisticated in design. There's a LOT of info here.... BB

    It looks like we are coming up on a 10 year anniversary here, something to celibrate.

    On another note, it seems that there was an early prejudice toward New Yorkers, I'll let it go for now, but if it isnt addressed in the next 10 years I may have to make a stink!!!!

    Ha... oh yeh, I saw that one too. Hey, at least nobody has called me a Masshole! (yet)

    10 Years = Celebration. I have an idea... how about if I begin a "Site Appreciation Day" thread? I wrote something this morning on this order of things. BB

    Nothing made me feel old like seeing a pointer to "SB in its infancy", going to look therein, and finding a post from myself from a decade ago!
