2009 cross season has already begun. YIKES! It’s already here. It felt like this season sneaked up from behind to deliver a terrific surprise. ”Here I am!” Well, Paul, Tone, Chris, and Robert have been jonesing for a race and decided to head to Livermore for some early season race action. Here’s a snatch of some video.
In 1759 Arthur Guinness signs a 9,000-year lease on an unused brewery at St. James’s Gate, Dublin. It costs him an initial £100 (about $147 US dollars) with an annual rent of £45 (about $66 US dollars) – this includes crucial water rights. The brewery covers four acres and consists of a copper, a kieve, a mill, two malthouses, stabling for 12 horses and a loft to hold 200 tons of hay. Arthur begins brewing porter and ale.
