030715 weibo update: I just saw the news that yesterday someone spent 40,000 to buy a press permit. I know that you want to support me, but next time don’t do this, I always know you guys are by my side. After this, I will find the opportunity to meet with everyone more! So save money and do more meaningful things with it! Also, I heard that a lot of people are questioning my selfie skills???


And the world was all around us, new with possibility.

Fun 4th of July Drinking Facts:

  • George Washington owned a distillery that produced rye
  • The julep found popularity in America even before the the first shots were fired in the Revolutionary War. Born in Virginia, the julip was made with rum or brandy, not bourbon as it is today
  • The popular cocktail called The Stone Fence purportedly played a supporting role in the Revolutionary War itself, when patriot Ethan Allen and his Green Mountain Boys were able to easily overtake a Fort Ticonderoga commanded by British forces sodden with the drink
  • The colonial-era working classes mainly indulged in beer and cider, while those who could afford it looked to Europe to slake their thirst, with old-world elixirs like madeira, sherry and Holland gin
