If you have been watching or reading the news lately, you will know that the ALES homebrewing club is all about craft beer education. Brewing good beer, appreciating all beer and discovering new beer. The club meets on the first Wednesday of the month in our basement clubroom. This month's topics of presentation include: Hop Growing & Processing and Good Non-Alcoholic Beers. New members are always welcome. Come sit in on a meeting and see for yourself why the ALES have been ranked among the best home brewing clubs in North America. 8:00 PM. Feb. 6: First Firkin Friday. Men in kilts, a piper from The Regina Police Pipes & Drums, a procession involving a small keg throughout the brewpub, an unsuspecting keg tap, possibly a beer-soaked spectacle and 41 litres of special beer created for the occasion equals a great longstanding Bushwakker tradition. 5:30 PM.
Time Out; MarriageA man placed some flowers on the grave of his dearly departed mother and started back toward his car when his attention was diverted to another man kneeling at a grave. The man seemed to be praying with profound intensity and kept repeating, "Why did you have to die? Why did you have to die?" The first man approached him and said, "Sir, I don't wish to intrude on your private grief, but this demonstration of pain is more than I've ever seen before. For whom do you mourn so deeply? A child? A parent?" The mourner took a moment to collect himself, then replied, "My wife's first husband." A woman stopped by unannounced at her recently married son's house. She rang the doorbell and walked in. She was shocked to see her daughter-in-law lying on the couch, totally naked. Soft music was playing and the aroma of perfume filled the room. "What are you doing?" she asked. "I'm waiting for my husband to come home from work," the daughter-in-law said. "I am wearing my love dress." "Love dress? But you're naked!" said the mother-in-law. "My husband loves me to wear this dress," she explained. "It excites him to no end. Every time he sees me in this dress, he instantly becomes romantic and ravages me for hours on end. He can't get enough of me." The mother-in-law left. When she got home, she undressed, showered, put on her best perfume, dimmed the lights, put on a romantic CD, and lay on the couch waiting for her husband to arrive. Finally, her husband came home. He walked in and saw her lying there so provocatively. What are you doing?" he asked. This is my love dress" she whispered, sensually. "Needs ironing," he said.
