What Your Man Wants For Valentine: A whiskey club membership.

For many years men like myself have been going out of the way to make February 14 a special day for you ladies. We drive ourselves mad, looking for the perfect way to show you how much we love you. Yes there are the cards that have a tender heart saying on the inside. But, I am talking about the heart shaped box of candy, the stuffed animal, the jewelry, AMD of course the night out to dinner. We as men do these things because we love you, and we want you to be happy.

We never expect much from you in return, but, did you know the deep down we men secretly want something from you to show us just how much you love us in return. And, no, it is not that thing in bed that you ladies always say no too. You know what I’m talking about, don’t you? What your man wants for valentine is a whiskey club membership.

Valentine Day:Valentine Day:

This year to show how much you love your man, may I make a suggestion as to what to get for the man that you love for valentines day this year? Something that is sure to set you apart from all the other women out there.

A gift that will continue to bring joy to the love of your life every month of the year. A gift that he will be able to share with you, as well as his friends, and yours as well.

I know, by now you are champing at the bit, wondering what could this perfect gift for the love of my life be. Well fear not for I am going to tell what this gift is. Plus I am going to let you know where to get this gift for your man. Not only will I tell you where to get tins gift, I will provide you with the way to get this perfect gift for your love. How does that sound to you?

After all, we go out of our way to make the day special for you gals. Don’t you think this year, after how rough last year was, and your man was the glue that held everything together, doesn’t he deserve a little something special for valentines this year? Do I have you on the hook yet? Good, hang in there for a little longer, and I will let you know what this fantastic gift is, do we have a deal?

The Gift:Whiskey Club Membership:

What your man wants for valentines day, is a whiskey club membership. It’s the gift that keeps on giving. The best place that I have found to join is a little place by the name of Flaviar.

Many other memberships are out there as well. None of them can hold a candle to a membership of Flaviar. Trust me in this, I have Checked them all out. I have done the legwork for you.

All you have to do, is decide what plan you would like to go with. You can go with a monthly plan, or you can be a real adventurous, and go with the yearly plan. This is one that I would recommend, this way will save you some money versus the monthly plan. See, I am looking out for your finances.

Remember that I told you this gift may be for him, but, it is like buying a gift for yourself as well. He will be more than happy to share his liquor discovery’s with you. After all you are the love of his life. Now, do you see why I say getting him this gift, is like getting a gift for yourself? You can not go wrong with a Flaviar Whiskey Club Membership. I myself would be thrilled to receive a club membership from my wife.

What You Get:

When you purchase a membership, the recipient will receive a tasting box of their choosing. That is not all that they will get with their membership. They will also get one premium bottle every quarter that they remain a member. Now, that adds up to four premium bottles a year, plus four tasting boxes a year.

They will also get live tasting experiences at no extra charge. This is where they get to meet the people behind the spirits, as well as taste what the distiller has cooked up. But wait, that is not all that you get with a Flaviar membership. You also get to go on tours to all the distilleries that craft the fine spirits that are hard to get in the liquor stores.

That alone is worth the price of a yearly membership. You would think that would be the end of it, and you would be wrong my friends. As a member, you also get exclusive access to the vault opening that happens from time to time. This is where they release never before seen alcohol. You get to get in on the fun of having a bottle of liquor that no one else will ever have in their own home bar. How exciting does that sound to you? I bet now you would like to know what the cost of all this will run you, would’nt you? Well, this will probably surprise you, but it is not going to break the bank. Besides what factor does price have to do with it when it comes to the love of your life, who loves their whiskey?

What You Pay:

You have two options when it comes to payment. First you have the per month program. Second you have the annual program, the best value for your money in my opinion. And, I am not just saying that to get a bigger commission. I get the same amount no matter which program you decide to go with. Yes I make a small commission from your purchase.

For the monthly program your price is $31.67 per month, billed quarterly. For a total of $95.00 this is a pretty good deal, don’t you think?

For the yearly program your price is $25.00 a month, billed annually for a grand total of $300.00 like I said the best deal in my opinion. What do you think.

I know you think that is a little expensive, and I do not blame you for thinking that. But, who can put a price on love and happiness? If you would like to know more about this club membership, click on the banner to the right. You can browse everything that the club has to offer.

Remember I said buying your man a gift of a Flaviar Whiskey Club Membership, is like buying a gift for yourself. Trust me, when I tell you what your man wants for valentine is a whiskey club membership. If you have any questions about the club membership, don’t be afraid to reach out, and I will do my best to answer any questions that you have.

For The Guys:

Gentlemen, if you are struggling to come up with the perfect gift for your special lady, and she happens to be a fan of whiskey, or any other type of alcohol, then, this year give her a gift of a Flaviar whiskey club membership. It sure beats a box of chocolates and a stuffed bear. Seriously if you get her this club membership, do not forget the chocolates as well.

Different Degrees Of Alcoholism: alcohol use disorder.

Normally I write an article and include a few cocktail recipes. Today I am want to talk about the abuse of alcohol use and the affects it can have on a person. Now, there are different degrees of alcoholism, and everyone has a different definition of what an alcoholic is. The program that I attended while in the navy ( NADSAP ) navy alcohol drug and substance abuse program. This was a mandatory class that everyone in the navy had to take, whether we had a problem. They defined an alcoholic as anyone who drinks alcohol, even if you only drink one night a year. In other words, if you drink alcohol, you are an alcoholic. Another definition is someone who’s drinking is out of control, like if you lose your job, car or house due to your drinking, then you are an alcoholic. ->->->CLICK HERE<-<-<- for all your alcohol needs.

Alcohol Disorder:Alcohol Abuse:

This is a level that includes the term alcoholism. It is a pattern of alcohol use that involves problems controlling your drinking. Being preoccupied with alcohol, continuing to use alcohol even when it causes problems. Having to drink more in order to achieve the same affects, or having withdrawal symptoms when you rapidly decrease, or stop drinking all together.

Unhealthy alcohol use includes any alcohol use that puts your health or safety at risk, or causes other alcohol-related problems. This also includes binge drinking- a pattern of drinking where a male consumes five or more alcoholic beverages within a two-hour time period. Or for females who consume at least four alcoholic beverages within a two-hour time period. Binge drinking causes a wide range of health and safety risks.

If your pattern of drinking results in repeated significant distress and problems functioning in your daily life, you more then likely have alcohol use disorder. It can range from mild to severe. However, even a mild disorder can escalate and lead to serious problems, so early treatment is very important.

Symptoms:Serious Problems:

Alcohol use disorder can be mild, moderate, or severe, based on the number of symptoms that you experience. Signs and symptoms may include:

1) Being able to limit the amount of alcohol you consume.

2) Wanting to cut down on the amount of alcohol you drink, or making unsuccessful attempts do so.

3) Spending a lot of time drinking, getting alcohol or recovering from the use of alcohol

4) Feeling a strong craving or urge to consume alcohol

5)failing to fulfill major obligations at work, school, or home due to repeated use of alcohol

6) continuing to consume alcohol even though you know that it’s causing physical, social, or interpersonal problems

7) Giving up or reducing social and work activities, as well as any hobbies that you normally enjoy doing

8) Using alcohol in situations where it is not safe, such as driving a motor vehicle or when swimming

9) Developing a tolerance to alcohol so you need to more to feel it’s affects or you have a reduced effect from the same amount

10) Experiencing withdrawal symptoms, such as nausea, sweating, and shaking, when you do not drink, or drinking to avoid these symptoms

Alcohol use disorder can include periods of alcohol intoxication and symptoms of withdrawal

* Alcohol intoxication results as the amount of alcohol in your bloodstream increases. The higher the blood alcohol concentration is, the more impaired you become. Alcohol intoxication causes behavior problems and mental changes. These may include inappropriate behavior, unstable moods, impaired judgment, slurred speech, impaired attention or memory, and poor concentration. You can also have periods called ” Blackouts”, where you do not remember current events. Very high blood alcohol levels can lead to coma or even death.

* Alcohol withdrawal can occur when alcohol use has been heavy and prolonged, and is then stopped or greatly reduced. It can occur in several hours to four to five days later. signs and symptoms include sweating, a rapid heart beat, hand tremors, problems sleeping, nausea and vomiting, hallucinations, restlessness and agitation, anxiety, and occasionally seizures. Symptoms can be severe enough to impair your ability to function at work or in social situations.

What Is Considered 1 drink?One Drink:

The national institute on alcohol abuse and alcoholism defines one standard drink as any one of these.

1) 12 ounces of regular beer ( about five percent alcohol content)

2) 8-9 ounces of malt liquor ( about 7 percent alcohol content )

3) 5 ounces of unfortified wine ( about 12 percent alcohol content)

4) 1 and a half ounces of hard liquor ( about 40 percent alcohol content)

Prolonged use of these can cause major health problems. The biggest problem being damage to your liver. The liver is the organ that filters out the impurities in our bloodstreams. Once the liver fails, you can end up with jaundice, ( yellowing of the skin and eyes ) Also you can end up with hepatitis. When our liver does not function properly, other organs in our bodies start to fail as well. In other words drinking too much is killing us.

When To See A Doctor:

If, you feel that you sometimes drink too much alcohol, or your drinking is causing problems as mentioned above, or your family is concerned about your drinking, Chad, talk with your doctor. Other ways to get help include talking with a mental health professional or seeking help from a support group such as Alcoholics Anonymous or a similar type of self-help group.

Because denial is so common, you may not feel like you have a problem with drinking. You might not recognize how much you drink or how many problems there are in your life that are related to alcohol use. Listen to relatives Chad, friends or co-workers when they ask you to examine your drinking habits or to seek help. Consider talking with someone who has had a drinking problem, and was able to stop, someone like me. Although, I have not completely stopped.

I am an alcoholic, I still have a drink every once in a while. I now have my alcohol use under control, and am able to enjoy a cocktail or two once in a while. No longer do I start to drink, and not stop. And I never drink and drive a motor vehicle of any type. That includes ATV’S. And motorcycles.

If Your Loved One Needs Help:

Many people with alcohol use disorder hesitate to get treatment due to the fact that they do not recognize that they have a problem. An intervention from loved ones can be of some help. This does not work for everyone, it can actually cause them to drink more. Some people who use an excessive amount of alcohol. Realize that they have a problem, and except the fact, and that they need professional help. If, you are concerned about someone who drinks too much, ask a professional who is experienced in alcohol treatment for some advice on how to approach that person.

* Causes of alcoholism:

Genetics play a big factor. Children who have parents that drink too much are very likely to grow up and have the same problem, psychological, social and environmental factors can impact how drinking alcohol affects your body and behavior. Theories suggest that for certain people drinking, has a different and stronger impact that can lead to these different stages of alcoholism. Over time drinking too much alcohol may change the normal function of the areas of your brain associated with the experience of pleasure, judgment, and the ability to exercise control over your behavior. This may result in cravings for alcohol, in order to restore good feelings, or reduce negative ones.

If, you feel like your loved one needs help with a drinking problem. Do not hesitate to talk to someone who is capable of dealing with this type of situation. Alcoholism can destroy life as well as hurt the people around you. Do something about the problem, before the problem takes care of you.

Use this slit to wedge the Apple star onto the rim of the glass.( To prevent the apple slices from browning, sprinkle a few drops of lemon juice on them immediately after cutting them. )

Remove the ros’e from the freezer and scrape into a pitcher. Stir. Evenly distribute the frozen drink between all the garnished glasses, and enjoy. I have a dream, cocktails for freedom has come to an end. I hope that you give some of these a try with some friends. If you do please stop back and let me know if you liked them. I truly wish for equality on this earth, hopefully before I pass away.

Remember to drink responsibly, and never drink and drive, the life you save my very well be your own. Sincerely: your friend John D. Have a blessed weekend friends.

Put The Bottle To My Head And Pull The Trigger: I am outraged.

Let me start by saying, if I offend anyone here today I am very sorry. However, there is something that I need to get off my chest. And it needs to be said publicly. Most of the articles on this site are about alcohol, as well as cocktail recipes. This article is going to be a little bit different from the others.

Put the bottle to my head and pull the trigger. I am outraged, I believe is the perfect title for today’s topic. Simply due to the fact that I am one hundred percent ashamed to be an American. After what happened in our country last week, I just want to go bury my head in the sand on some deserted island. Or drown myself in a bottle of bourbon. You should want to join me in this effort, I am.pretty sure that are a few of out there that feel the same way that I do at this moment in time.

The Oath We Take:Oath Of Service:

Every man and woman who enters into military service has to take an oath. This oath states that we will defend the country from enemies, both foreign and domestic. Nowhere in the oath of service does it say to join the ranks of those who wish to do harm.

Last Wednesday an event took place in our nation’s capital. What was supposed to be a peaceful protest, turned into violence. Some of the individuals who were in this crowd of hooligans, are United States veterans. One of which we know was a United States Airforce officer. This man should have known better, and should have tried to put a stop to the destruction. Not be a leader for the group.

I myself have taken the oath of service, and served my country with honor. To this day I still serve, now it’s my community as I serve as a security officer. I am totally outraged that members of the armed forces and who are now veterans, decided to become domestic terrorists. And that is exactly what they are. Plus they are now on the FBI’s most wanted list. The FBI is actively searching for them, and even found and made a few arrests.

What isĀ  Even more outrageous, is the fact that they are now finding out that some of the capital police officers, rather than stop the mob, joined in with them. They are also under investigation, and may lose their job along with all of their benefits. I hope it was all worth it for them. How do you feel about this whole situation?

What Was The Cause?President Trump

The cause of these outrageous acts against our nation’s capital, was the words of one man. The president of the United States Mr. Donald Trump. Do not get me wrong, I am not making a threat against the president, I am merely stating the fact of the matter.

Earlier in the day he stepped up to a podium and gave a speech to some peaceful protesters. I did’nt hear everything that was said, but the president being upset that he lost the election suggested that there was voter fraud to blame and wanted the senate to look into it.

Go figure a man who is not used to losing, lost the election and decided to throw a little temper.tantrum. He told the people there to March down the street and hold congress accountable. Go figure, a man who is always saying you’r fired, is now the one being told ,you’r fired. And he doesn’t like it. So he threw a tantrum. His words incited a riot, and he should be held accountable as well as the rioters. What do you think should happen to the leader of the free world?

Where Do We Go From Here?Arrests:

If you ask me, everyone who was involved in the attack on the capital, should all be arrested. Including the president of the United States. I think that impeachment for a second time just is not enough justice.

However, moving forward with criminal charges against the president, would just keep his face in front of the cameras. Giving him free publicity for his next endeavors.

One day Mr Trump says there will be a peaceful transition of power to president-elect Joe Biden. Then the next day the president says that he will not attend the inauguration. This tells me that the president, a man that I voted for is no more than sniveling little child. Mr. President, you admitted defeat, now be a man and uphold the tradition of the transfer of power to the president-elect. Also, you should hold yourself accountable for the actions that took place last Wednesday. What do you think the president should do about the situation?

Looking Forward To The Future:President Elect Joe Biden:

In just about two weeks we will have a new president. The American people have spoken and voted a new president into office. This may have upset quite a few people. But, this is a fact, and we have to live with it. Like it, or not.

Now you can see why I am going to put the bottle to my head and pull the trigger. I am outraged. But, there is nothing I can do about it. The man that I voted for lost. I have to accept it, and move on. I am not going to throw a temper.tantrum. I will however sit back and have a cocktail or two.

I already know that Joe Biden is going to carry on with president Obama’s agenda. I do not think that anything that Mr. Biden will be able to do any of the thing he said he would do during his campaign. Like double the amount of social security that people get. Especially without raising our taxes. I know for a fact that once Mr. Biden reinstates Obama care, my prescription costs are going to go back up. Great news for me right?

Thanks, For Letting Me Rant:

As I said above, sorry if this article offends anyone. I just had to get all of that off my chest, I hope you understand. If you have any thoughts on the subject, please leave a comment below. Let me know you’r feelings on any of the topics in this article.

Remember to drink responsibly, and never drink and drive. The life you save may very well be you’r own. I promise that I will be back latter this week with some cocktail recipes for you to enjoy. Have a blessed day my friends. Sincerely: John D.
