    George Washington’s rye whiskey going on sale Rye whiskey using George Washington’s own recipe will soon go on sale at the first president’s Mount Vernon estate in Virginia. The presidential home reconstructed Washington’s distillery and will make more than 1,100 bottles of unaged whiskey available beginning April 4. The bottles sell for $95 each. Mount Vernon says the rye is the most authentic version of Washington’s whiskey available. Washington was a detailed record keeper, and distillers used the same grain recipe and fermentation process as it was done 250 years ago. No word on whether it’ll be available online or...

Two park rangers were hospitalised and 15 people were arrested in the scuffle at Rye Playland in New York. The theme park was crowded with around 6,000 visitors. Roughly 3,000 were in a Muslim tour group celebrating a holiday at the end of Ramadan.

    Fifteen people were arrested and the entrance to Playland was closed Tuesday afternoon after a dispute at the park involving religious dress.

The dispute broke out at about 2:30 p.m. near the park's entrance between members of the Muslim American Society of New York, according to Peter Tartaglia, deputy commissioner of Westchester County Parks. Fighting began when they were told they would be denied access to certain rides if they wore religious garb, Tartaglia said. Two seasonal officers were injured while joining Westchester County Police who were...

    So many people have the ideas of the breed of dogs called "pittbulls". This bread had a very bad rap and who gives it to them is the people who poorly raise them and poeple who judge. I have been an american terrier owner all my life and they are the best dogs. They scored higher then little yap dogs and german sheapards are temparment test 82%. People need to stop being ignorate and just let them be. They get used for fighting and are torchered beyond belief. Look on Bad Rap web site and read the stories of this...

    There's a modern day whiskey rebellion brewing. Rye, once the quintessential American whiskey (it even was distilled by George Washington), is pushing back from an obscurity triggered in part by Prohibition, but also by the post-Prohibition rise of its cousin, bourbon. Last year, rye sales were up 30 percent over 2007, according to the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States. And since 2007, more than 15 new brands have come to market, including Jim Beam's premium (ri)1. "Cocktail trendsetters across the country really dig on rye," says Duggan McDonnell, a bartender at San Francisco's Cantina. "And tastemakers love the...

    Julien Jourdes for The New York Times Ali Shawn and the selection of whiskeys at Bemelman's Bar in the Carlyle in New York. LYNCHBURG, Tenn. COULD this possibly be the place where the nation's — and soon, perhaps, the world's — best-selling whiskey is distilled? This cluster of anonymous, uninspiring buildings, not in Kentucky or in Scotland but in a remote, silent valley in Moore County, Tenn.? Yes, indeed. As it has been since 1866, every single drop of Jack Daniel's, seven million cases a year, is made here in Cave Spring Hollow, amid the gentle hills about 75 miles...
  • Corn in Genesis 42:25

    QUESTION: Why does Gen. 42:25 refer to corn, when corn is a new world crop? Europeans did not know of its existence until the 16th Century. Surely that must be a mistranslation by the KJV translators, because the Jews would have not known about corn.
