South Carolina = Sweet Tea = Vodka?


South Carolina Co. Is About To Hit The Big Time…
Firefly Vodka is distilled on Wadmalaw Island, which is about 30 miles south of Charleston, South Carolina. The company has developed the newest craze in the spirits industry; Sweet Tea Vodka.

Apparently, this Sweet Tea Vodka is an outright hit. I have been asked no less than 15 times if I’ve heard of it. This stuff has created a buzz, (in more ways that one) that most new companies dream of. I don’t know this for sure, but someone told me that most stores are thirsting badly for more, as Green’s has bought Firefly’s entire inventory.

Red Bull sales may take a hit this tailgating season, as Firefly will have this product in Cockaboose’s and under fraternity tents.

If the rest of the nation would fall in love with Sweet Tea, this stuff could be the biggest South Carolina craze since Hootie…

Leon Lott for Richland County, SC…


Remember to go VOTE for LEON LOTT tomorrow!

Tomorrow, given the system in South Carolina, you must make a decision to vote in the Republican, or Democratic Primary. Since there aren’t many contested races on the Republican side this go’ round, I encourage everyone to vote on the Democratic side tomorrow. This will enable you to vote for Sheriff Lott.

I know this will be difficult for some of you. However, given that Lindsey Graham (whether you’re for him, or not) is going to win in a landslide, it would be prudent for you to cross party lines to vote for Leon. He’s a friend of mine, a good family man and a pretty dang good sheriff.

Get out there and vote for Leon tomorrow!!!

It Is Done…


Obama Crosses Finish Line; South Carolina Picks The Winner Again…
Now that the great states of Montana and S. Dakota have voted, there are no more states left. It is done. Senator Obama is going to be the Democratic nominee to take on Senator McCain this fall. Didn’t we already know this months ago?

Senator Clinton is staring in the face of history. This must now be an incredible bitterweet feeling for her. Do you remember our school history books, where the 40 something portraits of Presidents took up both pages? The pages usually had a blue background, with each Presidents head inside an ornate, oval frame. Well, imagine being the only woman on that page. What an awesome feeling it must be for her, but now so awful. Timing can be a terrible thing to one, while a wonderful thing to another…

On the flip side, history continues to stare at Sen. Obama. Timing, combined with a speech has done this. One speech. One speech at the Democratic National Convention four years ago, propelled this man to the forefront of American politics.

Being so close to making history, I know that Hillary is dying inside. One speech, four years ago propelled a man to national prominence. At the time, Obama was supposed to help John Kerry to the White House. Tonight, it looks like that speech may have made a President.

As Hillary accepts that she will not be the big winner, Obama may be finding his picture in an oval, on the blue pages of our kids history books…

Cool Boat Ramp Only 5-15 Minutes Away From Columbia Neighborhoods


Congaree Access At The End Of Rosewood Dr…
If anyone in town wants to go fishing, but doesn’t want to hassle with driving to Lake Murray or Lake Wateree, this little well kept secret is perfect. If you aren’t from Columbia, you probably don’t know that there is a great boat ramp at the end of Rosewood Drive. That’s right. There is a perfectly good river access point that sits 3 minutes from Shandon, Wales Garden and Rosewood.

After about five hours looking for a dinky engine part for the jon boat, we found ourselves PADDLING in the middle of the Congaree River. We threw our lines in the water for about two hours, only to catch a backache and sore butt cheeks. It was a good time though…

On Sunday night, we decided to hit the dock at the same ramp for some midnight catfishin’. It was packed with people. There was a campfire to the left, and a little girl in a sleeping bag to the right. No one had caught anything all night until my brother threw his bait in the water. He caught a nice cat on his second cast. The folks around us were pleasant, but miffed. Nothin’ like a slimy river-cat, chompin on drippin chicken liver in the middle of the night. Note; We don’t wrap our livers in panty hose. Our livers soak in the nude….

A good time was had by all. I just wanted readers to know that they can be cruisin’ the Congaree in 5 -15 minutes, from anywhere in downtown Columbia.
