Well, maybe not boozers. Drunkeness is a sin, but we're not a bunch of Puritans.

Does anyone here like to drink hard cider. I like it in the autumn. One of the things that is interesting about this drink, which I only learned a few years ago, is that it was widely drunk in the Middle Ages even more so than beer and ale. I find that interesting.

In a similar vein, I'm irritated with the church my family attended since their arrival from Germany in the 1800's. I no longer go there because I don't live in the same town and there is no Latin mass there. However, up until this year, they have had an Oktoberfest every fall and I did attend that. Now, this year, they are no longer doing that.

The Catholic Church in America is almost as Marxist as the Public School system. Any barbaric culture is fine but we must purify ourselves of every smack of decent, Christian, European culture.

Oktoberfest is based on traditional harvest fests while its Bavarian incarnation which is most familiar to everyone, derives from some Bavarian ruler's wedding feast (I think.) It might have been poor mad Ludwig, but I don't know.

Hell, I'll just have to have one in my own house!
