On the first day that the legendary alcoholic drink absinthe went on sale in the United States legally in about a century, hundreds of people lined up outside an Alameda warehouse to get their hands on the stuff. An Alameda distillery was given the green light by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau to sell its version of absinthe. St. George Spirits is the first American distillery to sell absinthe since it was banned in 1912. Their first production run officially went on sale Friday at both the distillery's tasting room and other Bay Area locations.
It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into Blogger.com.
I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed.
Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
