“Mom, do we look alike yet?”

I told him they definitely look like brothers.

Also, Jaz’s shield in the background looks like a little crown on Junior, doesn’t it?


Alright, beverage experts: what it this?

Coke or beer?

I’ll go ahead and tell you.

It’s beer. “Black beer” which is similar to stout. When my supply *ahem* took a hit when Junior was hospitalized, I remembered once hearing that beer could help boost production. Did some research and asked Martin to find the darkest beer he could find. He brought me a glass, and I got annoyed, thinking he got one of those sodas mixed with beer (which is also pretty good, but not for this purpose).

Nope, this is legit beer. This beer is actually pretty good. I would have never ordered this for myself, but will now keep some here at the house. Especially for guests who really want to try a beer that barely lets light pass thru it. AND check this out … according to my online sources (ha!), “one of the most famous drinkers of K√∂stritzer Schwarzbier was Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, who sustained himself on black beer from K√∂stritz when he was unable to eat during a period of illness.”

And that wives tale about dark beer being helpful for nursing moms (in moderation, of course) … I can’t say that it’s wrong …
