Fury For A Feast 2016

This political season, I’ve had the displeasure of listening to each candidate tell me just how good they will be for our country.  “Vote for me and I will make our country better.” they implore  It’s all rubbish.  Only you and I can make this country better.

Witch’s Hat Brewing Co. Review

Witch’s Hat Brewing Company – South Lyon, Michigan I love small town breweries.  There’s so much to be gained from being tucked away in a more remote area and so much personality that gets pulled out of a brewery when it’s not in the spotlight of a major city.  Located just north of Ann Arbor in the great beer state of Michigan is the town of South Lyon.  Not only does Danny Spanos, legendary drummer of the band Redbone, hail from this fine town but…
