Famous sayings about having a cold one!

https://i0.wp.com/cdn1.iconfinder.com/data/icons/BRILLIANT/food/png/400/beer.png“Sometimes, when I reflect on all the beer I drink, I feel ashamed.  Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I did not drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. I think, it is better to drink this beer and let their dreams come true, than be selfish and worry about my liver.”

Babe Ruthhttps://i0.wp.com/cdn1.iconfinder.com/data/icons/BRILLIANT/food/png/400/beer.png

“When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading.”

Paul Horninghttps://i0.wp.com/cdn1.iconfinder.com/data/icons/BRILLIANT/food/png/400/beer.png

“24 hours in a day and 24 beers in a case.  Coincidence?  I think not!”

Steven Wright


“When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk, we fall asleep.  When we fall asleep, we commit no sin. When we commit no sin, we go to heaven.  So, let’s all get drunk and go to heaven.”

George Bernard Shaw


“Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.”

Benjamin Franklinhttps://i0.wp.com/cdn1.iconfinder.com/data/icons/BRILLIANT/food/png/400/beer.png“Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer.  Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza.”

Dave Barryhttps://i0.wp.com/cdn1.iconfinder.com/data/icons/BRILLIANT/food/png/400/beer.png“Beer: Helping ugly people have sex since 3000 B.C.”

W. C. Fields


“Remember ‘I’ before ‘E,’ except in Budweiser.”

Professor Irwin Corey


“To some it is a six-pack. To me, it is a Support Group.  Salvation in a can.”

Leo Durocher


One night at  Cheers,  a TV Sitcom, Cliff Clavin said to his buddy, Norm Peterson: “Well, ya see, Normmy, it’s like this .. A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo.  And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first.  This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members.  In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells.  Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells.  But, naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first.  In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine.  That’s why you always feel smarter after a few beers!”

A Shot Rang Out

A sharp noise shot through our house. Peg looked up from the kitchen and asked  “what was that.” I sat at my desk, and asked her “what was that.”  We searched the house for broken windows. Often a bird will run into a window and break his neck. No birds, no broken windows. We talked about the noise and tried to understand what it could have been. It definitely sounded like glass being broken.

Later in the day, Peg  noticed some shiny stuff on the carpet in the living room. She looked up to the glass table and screamed, “Joe come quick. Look at this.”  I came and looked, “That’s the noise we heard Peg.”

Our contemproary end table has a glass top with four stainless steel legs glued to it.  A huge crack separated one leg from the remainder of the table. The shiny stuff on the carpet was shattered glass dust.

Cracked Glass Table Made by Progressive Furniture

Peg was furious and called Darvin immediately. We bought all of our living room tables from them less than four years ago. This end table is one of four pieces we have. Darvin furniture looked up our purchase and told us their warranty is only good for one year, there is nothing they will do about it. Peg asked to speak to the manager.

A short time later, the manager from Darvin Furniture called, and reiterated what we were told earlier. I asked him if we could buy a replacement. No, the table is no longer made. “Okay, can you tell me who makes the table? “Progressive Furniture from Ohio. I sent them an e-mail asking if they could help out with a replacement, I attached a photo as evidence. It’s been six weeks since I sent it.  They have not replied.  So much for customer service.

Today, Peg and I took a photo of the broken table to Tinley Glass. I am hoping they can replace the top.  The lady behind the counter looked at the picture  and said, “come with me.”  She walked us to a table they took in for repair. It was the exact same table. The glass was cracked in the exact same spot. They could have been twins. Now what are the chances of that happening?  How much of a coincidence is it that two totally different people bring in the exact same model of table with a crack in the exact same location, to the same glass company for repair, at the exact same time in history?

Up til now, I suspected that Progressive Furniture had a defect in the product, now I am absolutely sure of it.

By the way, the cost to replace the top is 1.5 times  more than the original cost of the table.
