    Our 9,000-Year Love Affair With Booze

    Alcohol isn’t just a mind-altering drink: It has been a prime mover of human culture from the beginning, fueling the development of arts, language, and religion.

    Drinking is such an integral part of our humanity, according to McGovern, that he only half jokingly suggests our species be called Homo imbibens.

    Randy, did you come home to rain? It won't let up here. This is the second week of it and more rain in the forecast for the coming week :(

    Bertold, speaking of alcohol, one of the weekly podcasts I listen to is the BBC's "In Our Time" with Melvyn Bragg.  Last month his panel discussed "The Gin Craze" that occurred in Britain during the 18th Century.  Very interesting listening.  Here's the link if anybody is curious.

    By the way, I highly recommend the "In Our Time" podcast in general.  It covers a vast array of subjects and time periods.  I really look forward to new episodes.
