We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I like honey blondes and beer that reminds me of honey blondes, but Bud Light will always remind me of hanging out at the bar across the parking lot from the ice rink after practices --pitcher after pitcher of cheap but icy Bud Light.

Here in OK we have 3.2 beer that is sold everywhere except in liquor stores. And you buy it ice cold. Strong beer is sold only in liquor stores and is sold at room temp. Most people will occasionally complain about the set up, but nothing is ever done about it. Personally, I like the fact that I can go in a liquor store and know that there are no kids, no lotto heads or anything else for that matter. Everything for sale is required to have an alcohol content.
3.2 beer is perfect after mowing the yard before noon or while enjoying hot summer days outside. You buy it in 30 packs. Unlike most beer, it needs to be served ice cold. I prefer Coors and PBR to Budweiser, though.
As an octogenarian, a couple of the craft-ish beers are about all I can stomach anymore, Samuel Adams being one. When I was young, I could and did swill almost any of them, with the old Millers, Jax and some other Gulf states brews among the exceptions.
When I lived in Ohio early '50s, only 3.2 beer could be sold on Sundays. Also, IIRC, 18-year olds could buy 3.2 anytime, but you had to be 21 to buy strong beer on weekdays. It made a lot of sense to me then. Sounds ridiculous 60 years later. As an aside, there must have been 20 brands of midwestern beers in the beer depots back then, many of them Ohio brews.
