In a few weeks, I'm off to the Black Hills to visit my sister who is working at Jewel Cave National Monument. The plan is to drive out Saturday (the same Saturday the last Harry Potter book comes out - that'll be a dangerous trip), spend a night in the Badlands and drive the backroads to Iowa towards the end of the week. We'll see what happens, but I'm usually a fan of taking the odd route or two.

As with my other travels, I'll attempt to get pictures up when I get back. I've been going to the Black Hills with family for over 20 years, and there are plenty of little things you never get tired of out there.

Silly post time.

I stumbled across a list entitled "The 10 Most Bizarre Beers." Beer for dogs, beer milk beer, and free beer all make the list, but my favorite description so far is for Kidsbeer:

"Children copy and mimic adults. If you get this drink ready on such occasions as events and celebrations attended by kids, it would make the occasions even more entertaining."
Well, yes it would, I guess. If you call kids standing on the table wearing a lampshade doing karaoke to the theme for Barney "entertaining," I can't really disagree.

(Actually, the stuff is non-alcoholic, but the imagery was just too tempting.)

Get them some candy cigarettes, give them a bottle of Kidsbeer, and send them out barefoot on Halloween with a baby in one hand - with an optional toy shotgun in the other. Better yet, put it in their lunchbox.
