NOTLD Released 40 Years Ago
On December 5, 1968 - The Night of The Living Dead was released in theaters.

Enjoy a brewski today - 75 years ago, on December 5, 1933 Prohibition ended. Wow, it is hard to think of a time when it was illegal to have a beer or a glass of wine or, oh my - a vodka tonic, a cosmo or a a little Sambuca in your expresso. But I think it really happened. And it ended 75 years ago today. To honor this event - here's a few links related to the subject of alcohol. Beer, Wine, Alcohol, drunk, drinking, moonshine, or moon shine. Staff picks - Aunt Bea's Medicine Man - the episode where Aunt Bea gets tiddly, a little lit, tipsy, etc etc. Also - Granny's Spring Tonic, where Granny makes her first spring batch of hooch from the still at the cement pond. Plus - Drinking & Eating PSA, too weird to explain... and the Terry Garland song, The Bible and Jim Beam. Cheers, prohibition ended today 75 years ago - December 5, 1933.
