St. George’s Day…

The Patron Saint St. George gives us a reason for celebration around the world, and that's just what we do.  His memorial is celebrated on the 23 of April, and he is regarded as one of the most prominent military saints. St. George was, according to tradition, a Roman soldier and priest in the Guard of Diocletian (an anti- Christian Roman Emperor), who died a martyr's death in 303 A.D. The earliest literacy reference to St. George comes from Eusebius of Caesarea who, in 322 A.D., writes of a noble- born soldier of high rank in the Roman army, being thrown into prison for...

Earth Day 2010

Earth Day 2010 is almost upon us and The Drink Guy is there! This is the 40th anniversary of the first celebration, held in the USA in 1970. The objective of that first Earth Day event was to "raise public awareness of environmental problems and their potential solutions." Interestingly enough, the idea for how to promote a day focusing on environmental concerns came from anti-Vietnam demonstrations! At the time, these demonstrations were happening all over the US, and the attention they were gathering was exactly what U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson, the originator of Earth Day, was...

4/20 And Other International Holiday’s!

4/20:The Things I Learn From The Drink Guy! Holiday's, an obvious topic for writing about on The Drink Guy, that's where it all started. While chatting with one of our Drink Guy fans from the UK, she made a fabulous suggestion. Why not write about holiday's from all over the world, popular and obscure? Well this just made sense, so I sat down tonight to do some research on holiday's around the world. Sigh, why do I always think these things are going to go WAY more smoothly than they do!?!? With trusty laptop, I begin my search. "Google that s**t" is one of my favorite mantras, so I...

Frustrated With Her Mom!

Parents Interfering, How To Cope! Looking for advice, this question came in via our Drink Guy Face Book fan page! Dear Lynn, I have been dating my girlfriend for just over a year. We are at the same university, and met there. We live in different cities, and both have gone  home for the summer. Being apart  is tough enough, but her Mother is making it worse. We talk every night, usually online, but her Mother thinks we talk too much and hassles her about it constantly. I have met her family many times and I thought we got along well, I don't understand why her Mom is making her...

Facebook, Twitter, Teachers, Coaches and Students?

Facebook, Twitter! Facebook profiles, Twitter streams, social media that allow a student to connect with a teacher or a coach, good idea or bad? The question posed to the Bartender and the Life Coach in Episode 11 does not have a simple answer in our opinion. As an adult in a position of influence, as a teacher or perhaps a coach, means that we carry a certain responsibility level to our students. If we allow those students to connect with us through social media, are we helping or hindering the positive impact we are attempting to have? Certain social medias, such as Twitter,...
