I have a bottle of Maker's Mark Whiskey that my father in law sealed himself with the wax. I've never opened it. I don't plan to, but I am thinking I need to get myself another bottle so I can open that one and try it.Always amazing to me that where Jack Daniels is made,and marketed, that it's a dry county,and you'll not allowed to sample it at the distillery. I've not been there, but I was in one in Missouri,and went into the barrel shed. The aroma made you drunk in there! Ha!

Yankee-Canuck here. I am an expat American with a strange history. I was born in the states, raised in Calgary, Canada, returned to the states for six years (Jax, FL then LA) then bugged out cause I couldn't take it anymore, and now I am working on Canadian citizenship.

have you done any sightseeing while you have been there?i'd love to do all the dickens sites, do the jack the ripper tour, see buckingham palace. westminster abbey, etc. etc .etc. what have you done?

Gio (giobannaschlitz) i haven't done the dickens sites yet, but did end up at the address of Ebenezer Scrooge's accounting firm...which was very cool. i also ran into knockturn alley, if you like the potter books. i've done the typical tourist things in london, but my faves include the abbey (poet's corner of course) and i'm a big fan of the tudors so the royalty buried in the abbey are amazing. i also really like the tower of london and windsor castle. if you're in the UK though, you must go to Bath - its a beautiful city! and of course, full of jane austen, who i adore. if you're ever bored, you can check out my blog at http://www.giovanna-in-london.blogspo.... the earlier posts are full of the exploring i have done and its been tapering a bit.

have you been to oakpark, meredith, to hemingway's birthhome, boyhood home,and the hemingway museum there?? i am dying to go. however, the expense of the motel bill is scaring me off right now. love to also do the frank lloyd wright homes in the area too. have you done any of that?

message 24: by Meredith (new)

Meredith (ladybrettashley) | 17 comments i used to work there as a docent. it's about 15 mi from me, but the travel time is killer, so i had to quit.

actually - if you stay a little off the beaten path, you can stay for approx $40/night. i'm HAPPY to hook you up and be your tour guide.

i haven't been on the flw home & studio tour although i'm DYING to go. however, i have been to unity temple - AMAZING!
