FRESH FROM THE BREWER: STEEPLES AND EASTER EGGS

Written by Troy Brewer  |  Found in: Main Articles

Easter time is coming up and brings a lot of opportunity for bible thumpers and Jesus lovers to proclaim, rant, bless or gripe about whatever our “bent “ tends to be. Many of my fellow cohorts are appalled that our beloved resurrection has been highjacked by babylonian demi gods and egyptian eggs. The empty tomb has been taken over by a bunny rabbit and our children have ruined everything by getting dressed up and eating big meals. I want to address all of this and it might be a little bit tacky

FRESH FROM THE BREWER: TURNING SILVER

Written by Troy Brewer  |  Found in: Main Articles

Way before the blue man group hit Las Vegas, Paul Karason hit the TODAY show. You may remember him as “Papa Smurf”. He’s the old guy who turned blue after taking silver for a skin condition and I mean he actually turned blue. He used to be a white boy before he was a blue boy and it’s what happens when sunlight hits your skin, if you’ve been downing liquid silver like it is the last Dublin DR Pepper.

FRESH FROM THE BREWER: MAS MEANS MORE IN SPANISH; SO MERRY CHRISTMAS

Written by Troy Brewer  |  Found in: Main Articles

A few years back my wife and I went to the mall and of course we just happened to be parked strategically so we would have to walk through Dillard's. You can guess who was driving and I promise it wasn't me. I say that, but it really didn't bother me because Leanna is a Dillard’s junky from way back.

FRESH FROM THE BREWER: CONFUSION AT CHRISTMAS

Written by Troy Brewer  |  Found in: Main Articles

Reindeer Games
I have this big dream of going to Alaska and doing some fishing up there some day. maybe even some hunting. So I have been checking out the fees of such a venture and you are not going to believe what I came across.

According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, while both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer each year, male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of winter, usually late November to mid-December.

Written by Troy Brewer  |  Found in: Main Articles

Well, ready or not, Christmas and all that comes with it is barreling down on us like the comet ISON. Its the most fattening time of the year and what happens under the mistletoe stays under the mistletoe.

Mistletoe. Everybody loves that evergreen. I will have it all over my house in hopes my wife will somehow feel obligated to smooch on me one more time.
