Meet Jane Walker

Big liquor company Diageo is launching a whiskey for women brand.  Called Jane Walker, with a snappy new label showing a sharp looking female version of Johnny Walker.  The scotch inside will be the same as what goes into Johnny Walker Black Label bottles. 
   Will it sell?  Consider that few guys will buy a women's whiskey, which cuts the new brand off from half the population, the harder drinking half.  How many women will buy a women's whiskey rather than the old reliable well known Johnny Walker?  Or old reliable Cutty Sark, J&B, or Ballentine for half the price of Jane Walker ?

Case of beer bet on Can Am hockey game

Heard on Fox TV this morning.  Obama bet a case of beer with Canadian prime minister Stephan Harper on the woman's Can-Am hockey game. 
  What?  A case of Bud Lite against a case of Molson's?  You gotta be kidding.  Especially as Canadians think American beer is watery and flavorless.  I agree with them, and fortunately I live close enough to Canada to get the good stuff. 
   They should have bet a case of whiskey.  A case of Jack Daniels against a case of Canadian Club, now there's a bet.
By the way.  Congratulations to both hockey teams.
