  • Gardeners: Am I correct in thinking that ashes can be used as fertilizer/soil nutrient?

    I believe I recall hearing this before, and since I have a woodburning stove on my patio, I thought the ashes could be put to use when planting my garden. Is this right? Does anyone have experience doing so? Any info would be helpful and appreciated. Cheers!

Brew Year's Eve marks the anniversary of the amending of the Volstead Act in 1933, enacting emergency legislation for the allowance of the production and consumption of beer after 13 years of sorrowful Prohibition. Prohibition was fully repealed on December 5 1933 with the 21st Amendment. This Monday, I'll be hoisting a pint or two in honor of the one great deed FDR did while in office. Upon signing the bill on March 23 (before it went into effect on April 7), he proclaimed "This would be a good time for a beer." Cheers!

Orchid Morningrise My Arms Your Hearse Still Life Blackwater Park Deliverence Damnation Ghost Reveries Watershed (if you've heard anything yet, good for you, since this new CD comes out this spring...)

    Obviously, many musicians have fallen before their time, be it at the hands of a misguided "fan," such as John Lennon and Dimebag Darrell Abbot, while others fell victim to a wrong place - wrong time situation, like Buddy Holly. Others were a result of chemical abuse, such as Hendrix, Morrison, etc. The fourth category are the "tortured souls" such as Kurt Cobain, Ian Curtis, and others, who decided their best option was sucking on a shotgun or hanging from a noose, rather than showing even the smallest bit of courage or integrity. What are your opinions of these "idols" who decided to take the easy way out... you know, since all the adoring fans and tons of cash pouring in were enough to make anyone hate life...? Bear in mind, this isn't to necessarily discount any actual musical influence these artists have had on the music that cam after them, but to idolize them seems a bit odd, no?

It's well known that alcohol is widely mentioned in the Bible, in particular... and not in a negative regard. It's also well known that civilization itself was built upon the discovery of fermented beverages. I'm curious how people of different faiths view alcohol, and what you think about those who preach to drinkers about the (in my opinion) "evils of alcohol." I'm not talking about over-consumption or drunkenness; rather, the simple enjoyment of a quality alcoholic beverages. Thank you, and cheers!
