Ten Thousand Motels I have a dilemma. It's 9:22 AM (EST) on monday morning. I have a huge stack of paper work on my desk, I have an ice cold 12 pack of beer in the fridge. Both are crying out to me for attention. The problem is I can't work and drink at the same time. Oh well, why worry about today what I can put off until tomorrow? The beer is winning....

I awoke after a night out, on my couch - beer in hand about 5.30 - polished the beer (Nastro) and went to bed!

Ten Thousand Motels Beer T-shirts not for boys

J.C. Penney says ads a mistake

New York Times News Service

The back-to-school sales push did not turn out to be happy hour for J.C. Penney. In the company's Aug. 28 sale circular that was inserted in Sunday newspapers across the country, a ''Back to School 2005'' logo is superimposed on T-shirts promoting Guinness, Budweiser, Miller and Corona beers and Crown Royal whiskey.

Alcohol industry watchdogs and parents fired off angry letters to J.C. Penney, which has agreed to stop what appeared to be an effort to market beer- and liquor-branded shirts directly to teenagers.

''There have been alcohol-branded T-shirts in stores for a long time, but what's new here is the brazenness of J.C. Penney marketing this as a back-to-school product,'' said Amon Rappaport, a spokesman for the Marin Institute, a group based in San Rafael that monitors the alcohol industry. ''It begs the question of why is J.C. Penney doing the alcohol industry's dirty work of marketing to kids.''

Daphne Avila, a spokeswoman for J.C. Penney, said that advertising the T-shirts as back-to-school items was a mistake.

''We certainly understand parents' concerns, and we don't want to associate ourselves with promoting alcohol to youth,'' she said.

Beer companies who turned up in the ads are distancing themselves from the marketing. John Kaestner, vice president of consumer affairs at Anheuser-Busch, said in a written response, ''We are adamantly opposed to underage drinking, and we never want our intentions to be misperceived by having our licensed merchandise placed or advertised incorrectly by a store.''

Some parents discovered the T-shirts displayed in ''young men's'' departments of J.C. Penney stores, a practice that Anheuser-Busch and Diageo, which produces Guinness, demanded be stopped, the companies stated in letters to the Marin Institute. Avila said that J.C. Penney recently instructed its 1,020 stores ''to reposition the shirts more within our mature men's department.''

A Dartmouth Medical School study of 2,406 fifth- through eighth-graders presented at a medical conference in May found that 15 percent had experimented with alcohol. Middle-school students who owned ''alcohol promotional items,'' including hats and T-shirts, were more likely to be drinkers than those without the garb, according to Dr. James D. Sargent, a pediatrician and co-author of the study.

Ten Thousand Motels Rolling Stones guitarist says being sober is dull

London: Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood says he is struggling to quit drinking alcohol because he finds life without booze "boring".

According to, Wood seems to be determined to stay off alcohol but finds it a constant struggle and yearns for his younger, wilder days.

But he thanks his band mates for standing by him and being a strong support.

He says: "Without alcohol it's a bit boring. Mick Jagger and Charlie Watts are very supportive. Keith Richards had a barbeque at his place and there was beer, wine and vodka, so I only stayed a little while. It's a 40-year habit. It's hard to change the ways of a lifetime. It's the Stones - it's hard to kick the party aspect."

egon DON'T waste money on expensive ipods. Simply think of your favourite
tune and hum it. If you want to "switch tracks", simply think of
another song you like and hum that instead.

RAPPERS. Avoid having to say 'know what I'm sayin' all the time by
actually speaking clearly in the first place.

DON'T waste money on expensive paper shredders to avoid having your
identity stolen. Simply place a few dog turds in the bin bags along
with your old bank statements.

BURGLARS. When fleeing from the police, run with your right arm
sticking out at 90°, wrapped in a baby mattress in case they set one
of their dogs on you.

EMPLOYERS Avoid hiring unlucky people by immediately tossing half the
CVs into the bin.

MEN When listening to your favourite CD, simply turn up the sound to
the volume you desire; then turn it down three notches. This will save
your wife from having to do it.

BLIND PEOPLE Give yourself at least a chance of seeing something by
not wearing heavy dark glasses all the time.

DRIVERS. If a car breaks down or stalls in front of you, beep your
horn and wave your arms frantically. This should help the car start
and send them on their way.

PREVENT burglars stealing everything in the house by simply moving
everything in the house into your bedroom when you go to bed. In the
morning, simply move it all back again.

CAR thieves Don't be discouraged when nothing is on view. All the
valuables may be hidden in the glove box or under a seat.

SHOES last twice as long if only worn every other day.

SINGLE men Convince people that you have a girlfriend by standing
outside Etam with several bags of shopping, looking at your watch and
occasionally glancing inside.

McDONALD'S Make your brown carrier bags green in colour so they blend
in with the countryside after they've been thrown out of car windows.

Ten Thousand Motels Thinking beer mat invented

A beer mat that calls for a refill when the pint is almost empty has been invented by scientists in Germany.

The electronic beer mat was created by computer scientists Andreas Butz of the University of Munich and Michael Schmitz of Saarland University.

Beneath the cardboard surface is a small, flat baseplate which conceals pressure and acceleration sensors that react to the weight of the glass and the position and movement of the coasters.

The microsensors then pass on this information via radio link to the bar, where the signal is picked up and decoded by a waiting computer.

The customer can speed the order up by "flapping" the beer mat, and can order more beers by using a stack of mats to express the number of drinks ordered.

The inventors say the thinking beer mat is also capable of more than just ordering a refill.

It could also for example be used to judge the performance of a karaoke singer or to give an opinion on referee decisions on big-screen matches in sports bars.

A "Yes" vote, for instance, could be registered by raising the glass, causing the sensors to move.

A "No" would be registered by raising the glass and then turning the cardboard mat over and replacing it on the baseplate, thus causing a telltale double movement of the sensors.
