Thank you Ruby. My wife certainly could benefit from drinking a glass of beer in the evening. She has diabetes, heart disease (she just had a quadruple bypass last year), hypertension, high cholesterol, kidney stones, etc. She has more problems then Carter had "Little Liver Pills," if you are old enough to remember them. The problem is that she can't drink beer. She gets drunk on one or two sips of beer.

I enjoy a couple of Long Necks in the evening to unwind after a long day in the office:-))
