Moderate Drinking

What is Moderate Drinking or Alcohol Consumption?

Here is a comparison of what some different countries' guidelines are on "moderate" drinking. (Vive la France!)

The U.S. gov't says moderate drinking is one drink a day for women, and two per day for men. Who has one drink at a time? What if I have seven on saturday night?

Canada seems to have a little more sensible view: no more than nine drinks a week for women, 14 a week for men, no more than two at a time.

It looks like moderate drinkers (however you define them) also have a lower risk for developing type II diabetes.

Now, where was that bottle of Pinot Noir I've been saving . . .

Tiki Fireplace Eerily Reminiscent...

Tiki Fireplace

This fireplace is awesome. It reminds me of something...


If you haven't seen Zardoz, it's one of the best "bad" movies ever. It stars a young Sean Connery running around in a loin cloth for most of the movie. It begins with a floating head (much like the above fireplace) that descends upon a bunch of men in loin cloths shouting "Guns are good. The penis is evil!" I am not kidding. It's a must-see.

Living Kid Free

Marketplace on living without children:

Living Kid Free: "There's a new American dream. The picket fence is still there. So is the hope of a nice career. But, you might not find the 2.5 kids playing in the backyard. Alex Cohen reports."
