  • Beer Mug: Battlefield IPA

    Name: Battlefield IPA
    Brewery: Avondale Brewing Company
    Location: Birmingham, Alabama
    Taste: The Battlefield IPA is a new twist on an American India Pale Ale. Our master blend of west coast hops and the finest American and European malt distinguishes itself from many IPAs on the battlefield. A hoppy citrus and floral nose invites you to experience the perfectly balanced IPA. The natural bouquet of our hop blend and malt gives this IPA a victory all its own. You will agree the battle has been won when you reward yourself with our outstanding spin on the IPA.
    What make it special? The States were at war and one fateful day a troop of Union soldiers, occupying what is now Avondale Park, came across a posse of Confederate Home Guards. When shots were exchanged near the house of the town sheriff, a stray bullet struck his wife in the breast as she stood on the porch of her house. Luckily, she made a full recovery! Read More

  • AJ's Car of the Day 1954 Hudson Hornet Coupe

    Car: Hudson Hornet Coupe

    Year: 1954

    What makes it special: Introduced for the 1951 model year, the Hornet was based on Hudson's "step-down" design, merging body and chassis frame into a single structure, with the floor pan recessed between the car's chassis rails instead of sitting on top of them, so you actually "stepped down" into a Hudson. For the 1954 model year, the model underwent a major square-lined redesign, with extensive retooling because of the way the step-down frame wrapped around the passenger compartment. A simpler grille, a functional Hood Scoop, a new one-piece curved windshield, period-typical fender chrome accents, and the formerly sloped rear end now squared off being some of those changes. The front to rear fender line was styled to make the car look longer and its taillights were also redesigned.

  • TOP 10: BRAND ICONS OF ALL TIME

    Aunt Jemima, has been the face of some of the most popular Quaker Oats products for more than a century. But according to Aunt Jemima's family, the nationally known image was stolen. D.W. Hunter,great-grandson of Anna Short Harrington whose likeness allegedly became "Aunt Jemima"  filed a class action lawsuit for a whopping $2 billion on behalf of all of Harrington's great grandkids. The suit is filed against Quaker Oats, its parent company Pepsi Co. and all related subsidiaries. Hunter alleges that "the companies conspired to deny that Harrington had been an employee of Quaker Oats, all the while exploiting her image and recipes for profit, while refusing to pay an 'equitable fair share of royalties' to her heirs for more than 60 years." The lawsuit also claims that the Quaker Oats company lied about having employment records acknowledging Harrington worked for them, even after the company was sent a death certificate that listed the company as Harrington's employer. Quaker Oats told the Chicago Tribune it does not believe the lawsuit carries any merit at all.
