Do you remember your first time? Plus, the fish are flying in South Jersey!

I was wondering to myself a week or so ago, "What was the first beer I have ever had?" I was very surprised with my answer considering all of the "dark years" spent swilling mass produced, watered down, canned beer. I was 16 years old on the verge of turning 17, so this puts me back in the summer of 1979. My friends and I decided to start drinking beer. The legal drinking age was 18 and I was a big guy at that time, so I was the one elected to make the purchase at the liquor store. The three of us, after perusing the aisles, decided on one six pack of Moosehead Canadian Beer. My first beer was a real beer. Go figure. At that age, I would have thought that advertisements from Bud and Miller would have went right to our heads. I can even still sing the jingles to mass made Piels, Schmidts and Schaeffer. Those beers never even made the cut.

The funny thing is, I remember our next beers being from Molson, Heineken and Gennesee Cream Ale. Not bad for a teen age high school student. I won't get into the fact that a high school student shouldn't be drinking illegally and behind his parents back, but I will say, we drank way more responsibly in high school then we did when we were in college. A six pack between three guys? And if we happened to be in a car, believe it or not, one of our friends wouldn't drink a drop. A designated driver before they even came up with the term. That's the way it was for me back then, a couple beers every now and again, sometimes a little more. I don't know what happened when I was introduced to higher education. My taste in beer went down hill, as I guess my income did ( I had a lucrative job mowing lawns in High School). I remember a story that took place at college in Atlanta, where my friends and I found a local swill beer called Drewrys. It was about $8.00 a case, plus you returned the bottles for a $1.50 refund. When we were trying to hook up with girls we would tell them that we purchased an exotic French beer pronounced Drewray`. The sad truth is that I think the beer was brewed with water (unfiltered) from the Chattahoochie River. Oh, the headaches the next day.

Those college years were fun even though they were devoid of taste. I guess it would be a waste playing Quarter Bounce with Guinness Stout or Hoegarden. I figure a college kid's instinct is not too bad. It's tough to damage yourself when the only alcoholic beverage you have during the night, even in quantity, was Miller Lite. I used to say, "Boy this Miller Lite is great, about a 45 minutes after you stop drinking, you feel like you never even had one!"

The Fish are Flying in South Jersey...

Flying Fish Brewery from Cherry Hill, New Jersey has their seasonal Summer Farmhouse Ale on select taps and in bottles all around the North East. The Farmhouse Ale is a sharp, crisp beer with just enough hop flavor to make you go, "Ahhh, hoppy!" The beer is surprising light in color compared to the full taste. I enjoyed a few last night with a beautifully grilled steak, grilled eggplant (Aubergines, for you Europeans), yellow squash and grilled red potatoes. The meal was great due in no small part to the beer which was a major high-lite.

Also, try their Belgian Style Dubbel. Nice. And I have mentioned this before, I can't wait for September, because Flying Fish makes one of the best Octoberfest beers around there.

Dr. Jay,
Yesterday was the second annual Rudby 7's in Stone Harbor! It was great! It was very well attended and the Windrifters (mostly former Shark) got there asses wooped! Fun was had by all. Hope you can make an old boys game this fall. It looks like we are going to try to schedule one or two OB matches a season. Paul

That's a great story about early drinking days. Mine was circa 1991-2 with Dock Street here in Philadelphia. Earlier than that was Michelob, Moosehead, and Miller High Life in my high school days (similar to your story).

Regarding Flying Fish, have you tried the Hop Fish this year. All hail the hop!! Excellent brew!

[color=#9db]Hello!
I live in the United States, I'm 22 years old. I've just broke up with my boyfriend and I feel a little bit depressed in these days. I try and stay calm so I don't think about it all day long.
One of the things that I love to do is stay informed about technologies like notebook, ipod, videocameras, mobile phones. The last one is my favourite, I like to always get new [/color] [url=http://www.ringtonereview.info/sitemap4.html]t mobile ringtone[/url] [color=#9db] because it gives me great fun.
Perhaps one day I will surf on a dating chat, but I want no string attached, just pure fun and that's it.
bye.

try holdem game instantly
Insiders say, "Hold'em is a game where you learn in 10 minutes, and honing his life ...". Explore so texas holdem poker rules and sit down to play!
Texas Holdem - goal of the game and the course of the hand at a glance:
Each player is dealt two cards, followed by the auction, then three cards are dealt on the table, the next auction, to table the fourth card visible to everyone, the next auction, the last, the fifth and final community card auction - so in a nutshell looks like a hand in Texas Hold'em.
Each player tries to arrange the best poker hand using the five of the seven available cards (2 + 5 shared their own).

Texas Holdem - "blinds" or the rate required
Before each new hand is dealt two players to the left of the dealer button - marked a white disc with the word "dealer", which circulated on the table clockwise - pay rates "in the dark".
The player sitting on the dealer pays the full mandatory bid in the dark (the big blind - the big blind), and the player to the immediate left of the dealer pays half of this amount (called the small blind or the small blind).
The actual amount of the rates determined by the minimum bets on the table (for example, we're playing at rates 1/2 $ - means that in each hand one player paid before any cards are dealt the dollar and the other two U.S. dollars - thus creating the initial pot).

Texas Holdem Online
Texas Hold'em - the initial deal
Starting with the player to the left of the dealer, each player is dealt two cards. These are called hole cards (called hole cards) and can be viewed only by its holder, lying face down.
If you play in a casino dealer role fully in each hand dealer, who does not participate actively in the game. Playing socialize at home, his job takes any player, handing out cards for themselves and leading to the end of the hand.
Texas Holdem - before the flop
When each player is dealt two cards, the first betting round takes place, the so-called. betting before the flop. The flop is three community cards, which for the moment will be on the table. But before that happens, all players evaluate their own cards and take part in the auction rate or the opening match when his hand finds to be too bad.
Starting with the player to the left of the big blind, each player has to make a decision: to align the big blind (English: CALL), raise the rate of mandatory (RAISE) or fold immediately (FOLD). If there is a breakdown, naturally each subsequent player must align to the new, higher rate.
Instant Poker Play
Additional option pre-flop is the holder of the big blind - he can wait (CHECK) - but only on condition that no one had raised the facility mandatory.
Once all players have leveled the highest penetration or the big blind, you can go to the next stage of Texas Hold'em hand or lining flop.
Texas Holdem - flop
After the first betting round is led by the hand puts the flop is three community cards. There is a tradition that the first card from the top of the deck is "burned" or put aside without revealing the next three places in the middle of the table, discovering their value.
Each of the three tabs may be part of winning in the final comparison to other systems poker players in the game. For example, if the table will be 6-7-8 and you have "on hand" (his two hole cards) 9 and 10 - that you have a straight (6 to 10). If during that time another player has in his hand a pair of 6-6, it is already three sixes (two from your hand, and the third from the table).
