Blog Note

This blog wasn’t supposed to be serious.  The premise was so ridiculous it was bound to be funny.  Trump?  President?  I knew there would be things that would happen over these 100 days that wouldn’t be funny, but I foolishly didn’t expect so much so fast.  There is nothing funny that is happening in our government right now.  There are some great signs at the protests that are going on though.

Week 1

It’s pretty clear after 1 week that I’m just going to have to keep on drinking.  Donald Trump is continuing his reckless governing and there is no sign it’s going to change.

On the plus side, the beers have been great.  My two favorites this week were the Deth’s Tar and Xocoveza Charred, but several others weren’t far behind.  The only real dud was the Baltika stout on day one.  Heading into week 2 now, and all there is to do is keep on drinking. Maybe some more resisting on the horizon…
