Leinie Beats Heinie Any Day!

21 Sep

Forget about that skunky stuff in the green bottle. I just picked up a six-pack of Leinenkugel’s Oktoberfest Lager at my local Publix grocery store. It is a really fine seasonal brew — tastes very fresh and incredibly flavorful. Reddish in color, not too heavy. We strongly suggest you give it a try. It’s the pride of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin.

Forget, Tiger – Boo is our new Golf Folk Hero

21 Sep

What a great day for Boo Weekly at the Ryder Cup. GO USA!!!

He is now officially the most famous Boo since Boo Radley (“To Kill a Mockingbird”). The guy is so doggone country … so down home. You can’t help but love him. We invite you to view the archived 2007 interview provided below … it’s very funny. Boo Weekly is golf’s answer to Baseball’s Dizzy Dean .. I reckon.  

Was Uncle Ben a Real Person?

21 Sep

We looked it up on StraightDope.com and found this helpful info …  

Uncle Ben does, indeed, appear to have been a real person. According to the official Uncle Ben’s, Inc. website (www.unclebens.com), he was “an African American rice farmer known to rice millers in and around Houston for consistently producing the highest quality rice.” Unfortunately, the site explains, the details of Uncle Ben’s life are lost to history, although they seem to be aware that he died sometime before the late 1940s, when Gordon L. Harwell, the first president of Converted Rice, Inc. (the predecessor of Uncle Ben’s Inc.) and his partner decided to call the rice that they had been supplying exclusively to the Armed Forces during World War II Uncle Ben’s® Converted® Brand Rice.
