Friday: Leap Day! Kilt Night!

Axe TrickI’ve been puzzling over this photo a great deal. Just how is this training useful?

Somone brings that young man back to earth, put a pint of Guinness or a 20-oz dimpled mug of Fuller’s in his hand, and tell him a tale (though I suspect he could tell us a whopper himself).

So: It’s Kilt Night! Stop in on this extra day of February and enjoy an extra pint and maybe some bangers and mash to celebrate the weekend. Don your tartan, if you’ve got one, and join the hoolie.

We’ll have live Celtic music in the pub as well: session style. No microphones or speakers. No schedule. Just musicians who keep the Celtic traditions alive. They’ll be in the bar area towards the front. Give a listen, tell a story, bring a friend or make new ones. Happy days!

TRIVIA ANSWER

OPEC controls about 40% of the world supply. That’s a hefty chunk for the cartel, but perhaps a smaller percentage than you thought.
