50 years ago, 1963: The State Department said shipments of U.S. military equipment and supplies to Laos was in accord with the 1962 Geneva Agreement because it was in response to a request from the Laotian government. The U.S. provided maintenance supplies, equipment and spare parts to assist the Lao armed forces.

25 years ago, 1988: The Soviet Union, which invaded Afghanistan in 1979, and was unable to crush the fiercely devoted rebels, agreed to withdraw its forces under U.N.-mediated accords signed in April of 1988. Afghan President Najibulla estimated the rebel guerrillas controlled 80 percent of the countryside and 40 percent of the towns.

10 years ago, 2003: Alarmed that Ireland had become one of the hardest-drinking countries in Europe, the government announced it planned to require health warnings on alcoholic drinks and limit liquor adds that invaded every corner of Irish life. The Prime Minister said Dublin youth should not be exposed to saturation marketing of alcohol, which fueled a new 'drink to get drunk' culture.



In Heaven there is no Beer,That's why we drink it here.


Typical. Take stuff away and make 'em want it even more.


As has been said:

Why did God create whiskey?

In order to keep the Irish from taking over the world.


Probably only wine in heaven.

According to the Gospels, Jesus' first miracle was changing water into wine.

The wine steward thought that He was a pretty darn good vintner.

Since beer is mostly water anyway, it probably woulda been easier for Him to make it.

Read McCort's "Angela's Ashes" or look at my own family history (1930s to 1950s) to learn how alcohol abuse devastates the Irish.


Funny logo.


In Hell there is no beer or ice-water.


Greek influenced apocrypha.


Still not (with the change)


Limit liquor adds? How about limit liquor ads?

I didn't know there was any correlation between heaven and a beverage. Thanks for informing me?


On second thought, there MAY be beer in Heaven but not in Hell (that would make more sense).
