    A conundrum...The Royal Dirkzwager Distillery in The Netherlands has produced Van Gogh vodka for 133 years; Van Gogh died in July 1890, less than 123 years ago. What gives???

    I have never heard of Van Gogh vodka, but it can't be as good as Chopin vodka from Poland.
    Why cheat on Stolichnaya?

    Better to drink Van Gogh vodka with Marloes Horst on a beach than absinthe with Van Gogh in a condominium...

    In musical parlance, a 6/8 beat? The Unfinished Beetphony? Something to finish on a camp fire while listening to Camper Van Beethoven?

    Drinking Champagne with a woman named Suzette on Rue Saint-Denis. Or was it drinking St-Rémy brandy with a woman named Denise and her minions that day in Paris? Maybe her name was Brandi, I forget...

    "V" for Victory...sitting in your Volvo, listening to Revolver and admiring the cover of the album by Voorman while driving home from your job with Visma at their Swedish office in Vaxjo. Your wife is a vocalist named Veronica from Verona and she loves cooking your favorite dish, Veal Milanese, often served with a fine Valpolicella!

    Frihedsmuseet

    The Museum of Danish Resistance (1940-1945)
    The museum tells the story of Danish resistance during **** occupation 1940-1945. It springs from an exhibition called Fighting Denmark, arranged by the Freedom Council in the summer of 1945. In 1957 a permanent museum was opened on the present location. The exhibition you see today was inaugurated in 1995.

    such magical musical numbers...Bryan Adams' "Summer of '69" and, of course, Woodstock! My favorite numbers there were Ten Years After's "I'm Going Home" and Santana's "Soul Sacrifice"!

    Of course, if you have three dogs, you'll never have a lonely night!

    "when the music's over, turn out the lights..."

    Kinda similar to Willie Nelson's "Turn out the lights, the party's over...", immortalized by the late Don Meredith so many times on Monday Night Football!

    The face in the mirror won't stop
    The girl in the window won't drop
    A feast of friends
    "Alive!" she cried
    Waitin' for me
    Outside!

    Before I sink
    Into the big sleep
    I want to hear
    I want to hear
    The scream of the butterfly

    Come back, baby
    Back into my arm
    We're gettin' tired of hangin' around
    Waitin' around with our heads to the ground

    I hear a very gentle sound
    Very near yet very far
    Very soft, yeah, very clear
    Come today, come today...

    Mark Twain...born two weeks after the 1835 apparition of Halley's comet. He died one day after its next apparition.

    He stated, "I came in with it and I'm sure I'll go out with it, too!"

    Sissy Spacek, a Christmas baby and Oscar winner (Loretta Lynn in "Coal Miner's Daughter"). It seems like yesterday when she played in "Carrie" but it was nearly 40 friggin' years ago!
