I don't...but I have a hunch it involves pee water or something...and baring that gays or something like that.

Cant stand the things in my beer personally..regardless of its origin.

"Go Simple...Go Large"

Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.


The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

Well, there are a number of explanations; none of them seem to be really agreed on.

As for me, if forced to drink Corona, I like the lime (or lemon) just to make the skunky taste go away.

But then again, I'm not much of a beer guy to start with. On the other hand, serve me up just about any Canadian whiskey, or a really good bourbon (Maker's Mark) and it's all good.

Still got my fingers crossed for you to find a boat, but as I'm boat-less and 2500 miles away, I'm not much help.

Yea yea its a corona, and this was a wedding and free and i like it....with the lime....to kill the taste yes haha drank one till i realized they had other "better" beers and wine

anyways ive got a few plan B's lined up now which wont be near as cool but i wanna be prepared, we walked down the boardwalk last night to the end of the harbor/wedge and it was gorgeous and got me more excited to get out on the water!

Ive got some help but nobody with a boat yet. I think the rinf will be here in less than 2 weeks so its crunch time. I think i might print off something and put it in some of the marinas if they let me to see if i can flag a few nice people.

Keep em coming friends! and Thanks!

To solve the mystery...
Quote:
In Mexico, a lime was lodged neatly inside the lip of the bottle to keep those warm climate insects from finding their way inside of one's beer. Then came along us silly American tourists. We thought the lime was actually supposed to be put inside to flavor the beer, which obviously caught on.
...And I REALLY hope that someone on the left coast comes through for you.

Wish I could help ya dude but I'm to far north. Sounds like a nice idea. Have you tried posting a letter at the local marina's or yacht clubs where local boaters could see it. You might get a better response there.
Wish you luck.

Change your location to So Cal from Western Michigan. I figured you were there. Expect others were confused as well.
