It’s been a long month of html hell, which began when I innocently tried to post a funny e-mail I got from a brewer in the East. I kept getting the message: html error, so I kept trying and according to my web guru, Zach, I screwed up the blog.

At one point, if you tried to read the post in Internet Expolorer, all you got was white screen. In Foxfire, everything was black. It was readable only in Safari, the Mac browser.

Anyway, Zach said it’s fixed so here’s the post, minus the graphics and typography:

The headline says: Beer Retirement Plan

“It will be so good to retire. (Picture of grandpa in rocking chair.)

“Investing for your retirement: “If you had purchased $1,000 of Nortel stock one year ago — It now would be worth $49.

“With Enron, you would have $16.50 left of the original $1,000.

“With WorldCom you would have had less than $5 left.

“But, if you had purchased $1,000 worth of BEER one year ago, drunk all the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling refund — you would have $214.

“Based on this information, our current recommendation is to drink heavily and reccyle.

IT’S CALLED THE 401-KEG PLAN.

No graphics, but it is kind of funny. There’s even good beer in cans these days: Have you tried Dale’s Pale Ale from Colorado? Good stuff. And g’nite for now.

We’re baaaaaaaack.
