Frickin’ Christmas in a bottle!

A popular winter seasonal out of Virginia is Hardywood Park’s Gingerbread Stout. The base beer is an imperial milk stout brewed with honey, cinnamon, and ginger. As it’s been said before – it’s Christmas in a bottle.

Brewed with baby ginger from Casselmonte Farm and wildflower honey from Bearer Farms, Hardywood Gingerbread Stout captures the terroir of central Virginia in a rich, creamy libation with a velvety mouthfeel and an intriguing evolution of flavors from milk chocolate and vanilla to honeycomb and cinnamon to a snap of ginger in the finish.

Bottles go on sale at 2 pm on November 16th, 2013. 4 bottle limit. 32oz and 64oz growlers will be allowed.

Style: Imperial Stout (w/ Ginger, Honey, Lactose)

It was after the mashed potatoes and gravy went flying that the filet knife came out.

At least, that's what the fiance of Kimberly Francisco, 42, told Sebastian police Oct. 13 following an apparent domestic donnybrook in the 1200 block of Indian River Drive, according to a recently released arrest affidavit.

Francisco's fiance said that he and Francisco were in a verbal dispute when Francisco "began throwing hot mashed potatoes and gravy at him."


Hot mashed potatoes and gravy generally are not viewed as aerodynamic, but they are tasty.

Francisco's fiance said Francisco then got a filet knife and tried to stab him. He said he disarmed Francisco and put the edged weapon behind a chair.


Meanwhile, Francisco denied tossing the potatoes, saying the spuds fell. She also said she didn't try to stab her fiance.

"Upon check of the residence, I noticed food, to include mashed potatoes, appeared to be thrown around the kitchen area," an affidavit states.

Francisco, of the 1200 block of Indian River Drive in Sebastian, was arrested on a charge that some might not describe as being small potatoes: felony aggravated assault with deadly weapon - domestic violence.

Axe Body Spray Mistaken For Noxious Substance, Triggers Panic At New York City School

Emergency medical teams were summoned yesterday to a New York City public school to treat students after a noxious odor was

detected in a sixth-grade classroom.

It was Axe body spray.

School officials reported that the aerosol deodorant was

sprayed around 1 PM in a classroom at

Medgar Evers College Preparatory School in Brooklyn.

Emergency Medical Services workers

“transported eight students to the hospital,”

while the parents of two other pupils brought them to their

own doctors, according to the city’s Department of Education.


The Axe was apparently unleashed by a young scholar who is now

facing disciplinary action. According to the Axe web site,

when the company’s products are used,

“your new and improved male musk is released into

the atmosphere, quickly reaching nearby females.”

This purported “Axe Effect” triggers “increased attention”

from “eager, and attractive female pursuers.”

Not to mention first responders.

80-Year-Old Russian Man Claims He Survived Fight With Bear And Fall Off Cliff

An 80-year-old Russian man was attacked

by a bear while herding sheep and

made the risky decision to fight back.


According to the report, the shepherd, Yusuf Alchigarov,

was herding his flock of sheep in a raspberry

field near Elbrus, a small village in southern Russia

when he happened upon a massive bear hiding behind a tree.

“It was huge. His head was an enormous watermelon,”

Alchigarov told Russia media this week.


“I had nowhere to go. I ran away but he caught up with me.

I had a jacket in my hands which I threw over

the bear as a muzzle. I began to fight back with a knife.

The bear grabbed me by the arm and bit and I, in turn,

grabbed his lower jaw, so he couldn't bite me again.”


When the bear picked up the man and beat

him on the ground, Alchigarov struck a heavy blow on the

bear’s nose, which is a defense technique commonly

known to shepherds, according to Alchigarov.

‘The bear’s nose is very sensitive and, if you whack

it on the nose, it pretty soon loses interest in trying

to make you into a meal,"


said Alchigarov,


according to the UK Metro. The bear then threw him

off a nearby cliff.

“I flew like a chip. I don’t remember anything else,”

Alchigarov told reporters.

When Alchigarov didn’t return from sheep-herding,

relatives and neighbors began to search for him.

He woke up seven hours later, found the villagers that

were searching for him, and was taken to the hospital.

Woman using cellphone drove into herd of cows


MOUNT HOPE, N.Y., Nov. 5 (UPI) --

Authorities in New York state said a woman allegedly

distracted by her cellphone drove into a herd of cows.

Mount Hope police said Daisy Cowit, 21, of Wawayanda

was allegedly using her cellphone as she drove into a

herd of cows crossing the road, striking six cows and

nearly injuring two farm hands,


the Middletown Times Herald-Record reported Tuesday.


Police said three of the cows had to undergo emergency surgery.

All of the animals survived. Cowit was charged with two counts

of second-degree reckless endangerment and one count

each of fourth-degree criminal mischief and reckless driving.

She was also ticketed for driving a car while using a

mobile phone and failure to exercise due care.

Man shot during bigfoot hunt in Oklahoma

CATOOSA, Okla., Nov. 5 (UPI) --

Authorities in Oklahoma said one person was shot

and three were arrested in an apparent sasquatch

hunting mishap.


Rogers County Sheriff Scott Walton said Omar Pineda, 21,

shot his friend in the back accidentally while the two were

out hunting for the legendary ape,

but it took a lot of questioning before deputies could

uncover the truth, KXTV, Oklahoma City, reported Tuesday.


Pineda, 21, was arrested for reckless conduct with a

firearm and obstruction. The wounded man is expected to survive.


Perry Don James, 53, Pineda's father-in-law,

was arrested after he threw Pineda's gun

into a pond before it could be turned over to deputies.

Walton said James told investigators he threw the gun

into the water because he was a convicted felon and did not

want the weapon on his property. He was charged with felony

in possession of a firearm and destruction of evidence.


Lacey Jane Pineda, 22, Omar's wife, was arrested on an

obstruction charge for allegedly telling deputies someone else

had been shooting at her husband and his friend.


"If [they] had just been factual, upfront and truthful with us

and explained that this was truly an accident,

as strange as it might sound, we would have went ahead

and investigated and probably nobody would have [gone] to jail,"

Walton said.


Walton said his department is not concerned about the sasquatch.

"To our knowledge, no bigfoot sightings in Rogers County,"

Walton said. "I think our focus is career criminals and thugs,

and we're going to stay focused on that and let

somebody else go after bigfoot."

Mom Lets Son Wear KKK Halloween Costume, Says It's A Family Tradition                                    




YouTube @ 6sec marker

A Virginia mother let her 7-year-old son wear a

Ku Klux Klan costume this Halloween because,

she insisted, it's a family tradition.


Jessica Black of Craigsville, Va.,

let her son, Jackson, dress as a Klansman with a

floor-length white robe and full-faced white hood,

according to local ABC affiliate WHSV. The outfit garnered

media attention after a photo of the boy dressed in the KKK regalia

was posted to the WHSV Facebook page.

When Black was confronted by the news network,

she defended her decision.


"My brother has [worn it] when he was in Kindergarten

and when he was 13," Black said. She went on to claim

there is nothing wrong

with the costume or with the White Supremacist group,

which she says still exists in their Virginia town.

"It's supposed to be white with white, black with black,

man with woman and all of that. That's what the KKK stands for."

Facebook users were not happy about the attire.

"A mini kkk costume??? In our area??? Sounds like something

we should ALL be concerned about. #noroomforacistsonthisplanet,"

one respondent wrote on the WHSV Facebook page.

Another defended the child on the

station's "Daybreak" Facebook page,

saying he probably thought it was a ghost costume.

Some users were angry that the town was being criticized

for the act of one individual, but others criticized these

people for missing the larger point.


"The fact of the matter is that this event could have happened

anywhere in the US and you all being more outraged

that your town has a bad name than the actual issue at

hand is extremely disappointing," wrote one woman.

"A few of you have missed the point completely.

Just because we are in a new century does not mean that racism

is a thing of the past. Racism is alive and well and if you

opened your eyes, you'd see it clearly."


It's been quite the Halloween season for offensive costumes.

First there was actress

Julianne's Hough's major mistake of going out in blackface to portray

"Orange Is the New Black" character Crazy Eyes.

Then, two men thought it would be funny to go out as

Trayvon Martin (in blackface) and George Zimmerman.

And the latest adult to face backlash on Twitter is the young

woman who decided to dress up as a Boston bombing victim.

So much for setting a good example for our kids.


Thieves steal 160 sheep near UK town of Wool

LONDON (AP) — Wool's wool is missing.

Police in southwest England appealed for help Tuesday in tracking down thieves who made off with 160 sheep from a field near the village of Wool.

Police say the sheep were stolen between Saturday and Monday, and that the thieves would have needed a large vehicle to move the woolly haul.

Constable Adam Taylor says all of the sheep were electronically tagged.

He is urging anyone who has witnessed suspicious activity — or been offered sheep "in unusual circumstances or for very low prices" — to come forward.
