Quotes of the Day for 25 October 2003 – Drink

The calendar is full of various proclaimed months, weeks, and days. I note that October is National Liver Awareness Month. I also note that it is National Apple Jack Month. Since the weekend is here, I think it's high time to bring out some drinking quotes. And as this is being mailed out, I'm going to grab a book and a glass of wine.
