    Churchill was always considered a fire-breathing orator. With all the whiskey he drank it’s only mildly surprising this is true in a more literal fashion.

    re: ujean

    an interesting thing about churchill was that he wasn’t a heavy drinker. He used it as a prop for his image. A number of leaders cultivated an image. G.S. Patton, for example, “liked to play the most hardboiled man in the Army” according to Eisenhower.
    .
    One habit churchill had was to take a large tumbler, put an ounce or so of whiskey in it, then fill the rest with water and drink it through the morning. He;d been stationed in places with water that wasn’t very good (which was most places in the late 1800s) and it was a way to keep from getting sick from local water. Even some of the water in the UK at that time wasn’t very good.

    First the water is boiled with the grain, then fermented and distilled. That takes care of any nasties. The alcohol than kills and in the added water.

    What’s exactly the relationship between those two?

    As Churchill himself put it, “All I can say is that I have taken more out of alcohol than alcohol has taken out of me.”

    I could not agree with her more.
    I feel the same way.

    I’d rather listen to Llewellyn ramble than watch the news too. Llewellyn is at least entertaining.

    I find it hard to believe that Llewellyn would have used the (non-) word “flammable.”

    But alcohol can sterilize and dessicate.

    @ Neo Stryder:

    To say more than that they have children who attend school and play together would be spoiling some surprizes.

    To say that they have a friendship (and have interacted with each other in the past) that goes back to Mrs. Mudd’s college days would not be letting too many beans spill.

    Of course, for the full story, you can always go to the Ozy and Millie archives and spend the next few weeks reading the entire run.

    Friendship between two single parents whose kids are best friends. Plus mutual respect and just a hint of romance.

    The last sounds creepy, because then Ozy and Millie could end being… stepsiblings.
