Patriot Suds Wednesday


What could be more American than standing in a backyard at a barbecue while holding a beer on the Memorial Day weekend in the United States? Budweiser thinks it has the answer: Holding a beer called America.

The brewer said on Tuesday it will rename its eponymous Budweiser brew as “America” from May 23 through to the Nov. 8 presidential election to “inspire drinkers to celebrate America.”

During that period, cans and bottles of the beer will be adorned with U.S. icons such as the Statue of Liberty, phrases from the Pledge of Allegiance and lyrics from “America the Beautiful” and “The Star Spangled Banner.” The change will coincide with the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The marketing effort sent both Budweiser and “America” trending on Twitter in the United States, with social media users reacting in befuddlement and amusement.

    Good morning, but good afternoon from Michigan. Another cloudy day. Wanted to mow, guess I’ll wait another day. Every day has been rain except this day, still….I’ll wait.

    Have to hit the kitchen when I’m done here. Dishes, have to cook for Quincy and Bob, plus I have a bunch of strawberries I have to deal with.

    I bought an Oriole feeder yesterday. It has a little cup to put grape jelly in, and metal post to jam half an orange on. I put it next to the hummingbird feeder so I could watch it from inside. I went in the house to make a cup of coffee, turned toward the window and an Baltimore Oriole was already on the thing, eating the grape jelly. Hooray! A younger one showed up and couldn’t figure out how to land on the contraption, lol. A female Oriole showed up a bit ago and knew exactly where to land to get to the jelly.

    Had a doctor appointment yesterday to have him look at a weird sore on my left leg. Left with another script for a second blood pressure pill. That one I’m to take at night. The one kind in the a.m., the other in the p.m. I guess my blood pressure is still too high. Oh, well. My number has come up, bad health creeping up fast now.

    Whatever it is called it is not very good beer.

    @ the Foundry, the successor to Swilly’s. The first time here was disappointing but it appears that they are more organized now. One waitress stayed on from Swilly’s.

      And then on to Sloan via the p. stairs, somewhat noticeable because I haven’t exercised for several days. So the daily total is 45 minutes for a slooow start to the week.

      Managed to take down the recycling anyway.

    Heading out to Pete’s in a few, we’re meeting an old school friend of his at the Mexican place in Mason. Mmm, Margarita!!! Jill may be able to join us a little later, if we’re still there.
