Oh, if only

Your wine is in the mail

Today's history lesson:

1. In 1933, FDR initiated the beginning of the end of Prohibition by legalizing the sale of beer and wine.

2. In 2006, the Indiana General Assembly magnanimously allowed the state's wineries to stay in business by letting them ship directly to customers.

And you can make beer in your basement, too. Just don't let the wholesalers find out if you give some to your next-door neighbor.

Interestingly, it wasn't until the Carter Administration until basement homebrew was legalized, magnanimously. :-)

Doubt it. If Billy could buy it, he'd drink it. Could Billy have made anything?

I think the only thing Billy was capable of making was a yellow hole in the snow
