Actually, it was a Jeopardy question last week. But I did know about SD because I drove across it's southern expanse, getting to see Jewel Caverns, Geronimo, Rushmore, Wall Drugs, The Badlands and The Corn Palace. We didn't get to Pierre because it wasn't on the interstate.

Re: June 20, 2018: Beer in a Carton

What an odd origin ! Things once embedded seem to take a long time to change, even when it's obvious ! I've always hated drinking straight from a carton anyway. In south India I had a surprise when I heard there was some Indian 'Port' at the store and got a small plastic pouch full of something that bore more resemblance to red wine vinegar.

@DrFumblefinger - South Tyrol was only a stop on our way from Florence to Munich. My friends are from Germany and one of them had been here before, so we stopped for only a bite to eat on our road trip. I hope to go back and spend a bit more time exploring at some point!
