Rebel Yell Bourbon. Discuss.

Screen shot 2014-01-29 at 10.16.01 AMI’ve been know to enjoy a bourbon from time to time. I was recently admiring labels and this one in particular struck me as odd. There are several things going on here that I found somewhat incongruous. The Confederate cavalryman I get. But “Rebel” Yell established in 1849? And the “deep south” of Old Kentucky? Hmmmmmmmm…. maybe they are just trying to cover all their bases. What are your thoughts? Not for nothing…this stuff is pretty good for a less expensive bourbon.

With compliments,


If You Can’t Say Something Nice…

Last night I went on one of my (slightly bourbon-fueled) rants about how the History Channel has turned into reality TV crap. I made a note to write something about that today. But then I reconsidered. I mean…it’s sort of obvious and I don’t see them changing anytime soon so why bother? Instead, here’s two pictures of Civil War era dogs. The top image is Abraham Lincoln’s dog Fido, a lovely pup indeed. The bottom image is anybody’s guess. I just thought (s)he was good looking.
