"People lookin’ at me like I was cray-zay! They say, ‘What’s a matter with you boy!’"

Hi y’all! Bet you thought I was out of the country due to the lack of activity here at The Duh Spot, eh? Not so! I have just been super busy the last month. You see, I am helping in the renovation of my parent’s home, and it has really worn me out. We gutted the bathroom and are in the process of turning it into a 20th century bathroom as opposed to the 19th century bathroom that I have lived with all my life. A shower! Great God in heaven a shower! Yes! Maybe someday we will actually have a home that fits the century we are living in – it could happen!

Of course Ida Sue Cooter has been yanking me around alot – and not the way I like, if you know what I mean and I think that you do! I tell ya, that girl ain’t right. Sometimes that can be a bad thing and sometimes that can be a very good thing!

So I do apologize for the lack of any updates. But you just hold on folks! New reviews are on the way! Including The Duh Spot’s first guest review!

Have a great Memorial Day weekend, eat too much good BBQ and drink too much good beer, and as a couple of wise folks I know often say, “Have too much fun!”

BTW: Happy Birthday to The Duh Spot!

Be back soon,


P.S. Here’s something to keep you entertained till the next review!


NYT article on Lambics!

Posted in Uncategorized on May 17, 2006 by bigruta

Hiya –

I enjoyed this article in the NYT recently about Lambics (title:
ALES OF THE TIMES; Lambics: Beers Gone Wild; May3, 2006; Eric Asimov). It’s only available for free for a short time, so read it now!

I became acquainted with lambics last year when BigRuta began a quest on my behalf to find a ‘yummy’ beer. He succeeded with Lindeman’s Peach Lambic which he brought along on our group trip and shared with all of us – Thanks again, ‘Ruta – it is WAY yummy!

Enjoy the article — and maybe some of the recommended lambics!
