Wine is fine, but whiskey's quicker.

I knew a Muslim guy who wanted to brew some mead. He figured that although grape wine was forbidden, scripture didn't say anything about honey.

Silly people letting old stories tell them what they can and can't eat or drink.

And a year's supply of Rice-a-roni!


Yeah, always confused me when so many stories in the bible talked about Jesus and pals drinking wine, but then the denomination my dad's family belonged to not only didn't drink alcohol, but they didn't have TV, women wore skirts, they all went to a private Christian school, the whole works.

The people that created dry counties would disagree that wine (or any other alcoholic drink) is OK.

Sadly, this is true. My brother in law drank himself to death (it took a decade, but it was slow and predictable). He died two weeks after turning 49.

And marijuana is still illegal, why? It doesn't exactly destroy your liver or pancreas the way alcohol does. And it's not physically addictive the way alcohol is.

I don't get drug testing employees for marijuana, but not worrying at all about alcohol.

Sorry, off on a tangent there. Carry on...

Provo is okay. My parents retired and moved to the next town over. The better restaurants were in Provo.
