Do we really want to visit Amsterdam?

What is happening? Inquiring minds want to know. Apparently the government is cracking down on the Red Light District, and even closing down up to 1/3 of the fine entertainment establishments. Read about it here...

Barbus.... Help us out here old friend !

Give us back New York !

“For over 200 years, we’ve watched our proud city evolve the wrong way. But the bell has chimed! The time has come for New York to be returned to its righteous owner: The Netherlands!”. Now that the US have "democratized", you should fulfill so! Please have a look at the website:

Two More Oktoberfestians Have Tickets ! !

The number of committed 2007 Oktoberfestians increased today with the acquisition of airline tickets by the infamous newly wed couple, Jack & Mac.

Yes, they will be back for an encore trip, and both are looking forward to the pre-trip to Amsterdam with Einfarht and Chugger. Hopefully others will be joining as well.

Look out Shakespeare's ! !

The time has come.

Gentlemen and ladies,

Today is a great day. Today is the day that I have joined the Visits to Oktoberfest - A World Class Event blog page. I am humbled to be in the presence of so many knowledged and over consumed individuals who may honor me in the teachings of beer, drinking beer, getting more beer once mug is empty, and possibly sign language since I am but a humble beermugholder.

I am friend to Privatehops. And now trusty travel companion. Together we shall explore the world (Munich) in search of new beers and foreign ladies. But knowing Privatehops, probably just beers.

I hope that you will all graciously allow me into your circle of trust. Or at least let me stand a few yards back listening intently.

Great poobah I am in your service.

I have failed as a parent

My friends,

I have raised my children to respect their elders. To listen to us and learn from our wisdom. In many cases, being a liberal, I expect them to explore new avenues to learn; knowing that my foundation of teaching will give them the basis for good decisions.

However, there are certain sacred topics where I expect them to follow our teaching without variance.

But, my friends, I found out that my son, Private Hops, had violated my trust. While cleaning up the back patio, I found a cooler filled with beer. OK. But then I inspected the beer and found it was....... Keystone Light. I gasped. I could not look at the cans directly (like Medusa). It was horrible. My son! Sure, I can understand if you're drinking someone else's beer at 3am and that is all there is. But he brought it ONTO MY PROPERTY. He exposed the women folks to this evil brew. Lord knows what the neighbors think.

But there is hope. We turn him from the dark side in Munich. I trust you will all be with me on this. Please turn your prayers towards salvation.

PS For our friends in The Netherlands, Keystone Light is water made to look like beer.
