My, they were prolific back then. I was taught it was because disease and accidents killed half of the children, or more.

It was the days before birth control and when having a large family was in style.

How many servants did he employ to care for the children?

Plus, that was the "Good Old Days" when Men worked from Sun to Sun - but women's work was never done!

He should have taken MORE wives! One must wonder how many mistresses he had on the side. No word on illegitimate children?

*OFF TOPIC!* (so I don't raise the IRE of the PC Police at JTI)

OT - Spicolli meets Mr. Hand. LOL!

Enjoy your Sunday!

In a roundabout way it is ON topic- for Bush gave us BUD Beer!

AND, it is from a Bush that we get BUD!

Did you know Adolphus Busch stole the original recipe for Budweiser in Germany? A couple years ago the lawsuit was finally settled and Budweiser here in the US had to pay Germany.

I had some of the Original Bud beer in Germany and it is most excellent.

Well there SER, THE USAF, in my Barracks at Prum AS Germany - used to sell Buds and Red Star Heinekens at .50 cents a can.

But honestly, I didn't drink any of that CRAP while in Germany.

I drank the heavy Golden Bier known as


Hefeweizen, Weizenbier, Weisse, Wheat Ale

Pronunciation guide for English-speakers:

Weissbier means “white beer” in German. The name derives from the yellowish-white tinge that is imparted by the pale malted wheat from which the brew is made. In North America, the brew is more commonly called Hefeweizen (literally "yeast wheat"), because it is unfiltered, meaning the yeast remains in suspension and causes the beer to look slightly turbid. Filtered, clear Weissbier, incidentally, is called Kristallweizen ("crystal wheat"). There are also dark wheat beers. These are called Dunkelweizen ("dark wheat").

Another common name for this brew is Weizenbier ("wheat beer") because of the preponderance of malted wheat in the brew's grain bill. According to German law, all beer that is labeled Weissbier or Weizenbier must be made with at least 50% malted wheat. Most Bavarian Weissbiers contain 60 to 70% malted wheat. The rest is malted barley.

NOT FOR NOVICES, or Light Beer Drinkers.
