Significant Anniversaries

This week has at least two significant anniversaries:

400th of the Reinheitsgebot, the German purity law that requires that the ingredients for making beer can only be barley, hops, yeast, and water. “Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.”  — Benjamin Franklin

500th of William Shakespeare’s death. Wonder which of a person’s dates is more significant. Birth or death?

My day job is assisting individuals and small businesses as a lawyer. I taught real estate law and American history in the Dallas County Community College system. I have owned and operated private security firms and was a police officer and criminal investigator for the Dallas Police Department.

I am interested in history and historical research, music, cycling, and British mysteries and police dramas.

I welcome comments, positive, negative, or neutral, if they are respectful.
