Training, Part 2


Students... have you been doing your homework? I talked to Chugger using the infernal mobile communicator yesterday and he indicated he was working hard on his studies. Good Chugger. You are a good example to the others.

Here is a shot of the Grand Puhba in the Dallas Airport sampling the local nectar, Shiner Bock. Not bad for being in Texas.

Search on for truth in hops and wisdom in barley.

Alfa Versus Excelsior

While the Excelsior may boast a nice environment and good food & drink, the Alfa has one thing the Excelsior doesn't. At least one you can mention in public.... RACING PIGEONS

That's right, European Champions nonetheless!!

No wonder squab is always on the menu..... ;-)

Shakespeare's

Here is the website for our home-away-from-our-home-away-from-home. Sadly, they seem to be going through a minimalist phase at the moment.

On a closely related note, here is a recipe for Jagermeister-eggnog cake.

Prost!

Second Post of 2007 - Get Down to Business !

I propose that BarleyMan, this year's Grand Puhba, update his History of Oktoberfest web site to reflect that a) the 2005 event did occur, b) all links to www.thevozels.com be removed since the site is no longer functional and 3) information re: this year's trip be added.

What sayeth the masses?
