I've recently reconnected with my friend Liam Cummings via, of all things, Facebook! This is funny, of course, because I'm really technologically challenged and fought the idea of creating a FB account. In fact, my daughter has to help me navigate FB (sad, I know).

Liam lives in Ireland. We met a few years back when we were both attending a week-long class at The Monroe Institute in Charlottesville, VA. Then, in 2005, I went to Ireland and met up with him again. He introduced me to Smithwick's. It's important to note that when I went to Ireland I did not drink beer. However, I came home a Smithwick's convert. I've amended my claim to this: I don't drink American beer.
