Ordering on-demand booze is about to get easier


Investors are getting pumped about selling booze on-demand.

Drizly Inc., one of the biggest players in the market for online alcohol ordering, announced a $13 million funding round on Monday. The Boston-based company lets customers order booze online, or via a smartphone app, with the promise that it will be delivered within the hour. Drizly told The Wall Street Journal that the investment comes with a valuation of about $40 million.

Founded two years ago, Drizly partners with wine, beer and liquor retailers looking to expand their geographical reach while still managing to comply with local alcohol sales and delivery laws. The company currently serves 15 markets—including Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City and Washington, D.C. — though Drizly plans to use the new influx of funds to bring that total to 30 markets, while doubling its staff to 80 people, by the end of 2016.

Mountain Man Traditional Healing



“Devil Take the Skillet” from “Stiff as a Poker” by Vance Randolph. Told by Mr. Sam McDaniels, Jane, MO., December 1928. He heard it about 1910, from old settlers in the neighborhood.

The wood all got wet, and there wasn’t enough grease, and the fryin’ pan broke so the handle had to be wired on. The old man was pretty hungry, and smoke got in his eyes, and it seemed like every thing went wrong. Finally the handle on the skillet come loose, and most of his grease spilled out in the fire. The old fellow belonged to the Pentecostal Church that don’t believe in cussing, but when the handle slipped he says, “Devil take it!“ Just then he looked…

The prompt for today is

who would be my teacher from the past and what would they teach me

Nothing pops into my head quickly. I have to think on this. I was thinking Amelia Earhart because

she could teach me what happened to her when she disappeared in that airplane all of those years ago.

She has always been someone I have admired. She was so cute with that short hair cut and honest face.

I can only wonder what horrible disaster befell her.

She could teach me how she became the person she was. Brave and daring. Unusual for a woman of her time.

Why did she press on. Why did she takes these risks. I know she married but I don’t know too much about why or who.

She never had children. i think she was in her early forties when she died but I might be…
