Imagine having an ice cold root beer minus the carbonated gas but packs an alcoholic punch. Sounds good? My thoughts exactly.
Root tea as it was call back in the 1700′s is actually an alcoholic beverage taught to the settlers by the Native Americans. It’s essentially an herbal remedy made with sassafras, sarsaparilla, birch bark and other wild roots and herbs. Towards the end of the 19th century, the temperance moment spoiled the fun for the rest of us. So the took out all the alcoholic goodness and renamed it, ironically enough, ‘Root Beer’.
Thankfully the good people at Art in the Age are giving us the chance to taste the original, very much alcoholic and organic beverage in Root. I bet you’ll never look at another root beer the same way again.

Being a guy and living in a tropical country, I’ve never had any real use for lip balms but this has changed my mind about using lip balm. Apart from its delicious taste, J&D’s Bacon Lip Balm has beeswax, aloe vera oil, Vitamin E acetate, and other ingredients to protect your kissers but I doubt I’ll be able to resist biting on my lips causing more harm than good. Bacon… mmm….

13 August 2009. It is a sad loss to the music world as a legend departs due to complications from pneumonia at the age of 94.
Les Paul, the musician, innovator, artist, genius. He was the man responsible for the solid body electric guitar and in consequence rock n’ roll was born. His guitar is firmly rooted in our memory and the credit for multitrack recording, overdubbing and delay effects all belong to his name. Without such genius, music today would be very different.
I truely believe all musicians today, be they famous or budding owe a tremendous debt to this man. I know I am.
Eternal rest be granted unto you, for eternal glory has been bestowed upon you.
