  2. Question and Answer
    I found this Cordial maker at Goodwill, and I want to try making my own liquers, as it's much cheaper than buying flavored rums and brandies.

  10. Debates, Politics and Personal Opinions
    I have a question, does any other high schools allow adults to tailgate with alcohol at high school football games? I am just curious if I am the only one that thinks this is morally wrong.
