N. Ireland-reason to visit #2

Bushmill’s Distillery is, check this, in the town of Bushmills, just up the road from Giant’s Causeway in County Antrim. They’ve been licensed to make Irish whiskey, (‘uisce beatha’ in Gaelic) since 1608, but were likely distilling for centuries before that. The buildings we toured misted with whiskey vapors, known as the ‘angel’s share.’ There were free samples in the bar afterwards, but being a lily-livered girl I couldn’t even sip it. STRONG stuff, and smooth for being distilled ‘tree times’ as per our tour guide.

America is kind of like the stomping 3-year-old child of the world. We’re such a young country (the non-Native contingent at least) that our old crap isnt nearly as old as other nations’ new crap.

Is it wrong not to let cars bearing Romney/Ryan stickers merge into my lane of traffic?
