Two Ambler residents file suit against Anheuser-Busch for watering down its beer.
They pound more than a case of Bud a week, between the two of them, and they have been for four years. But, when two Ambler (Montgomery County) brothers couldn't get drunk from the suds, they decided it was Bud's fault. According to multiple media reports, brothers Thomas and Gerald Greenberg have filed a federal lawsuit alleging that brewer "InBev's Anheuser-Busch," the U.S. makers of products such as Budweiser and Michelob. Their claim? The beer doesn't pack the 5 percent punch of alcohol content it promises. According to a report in the Morning Call, Busch "denies that it shortchanges guzzlers when it comes to that 5.0 percent." Nevertheless, the two have hired Philadelphia-based lawyer David Senoff to file the lawsuit, according to …

This year, I'm thankful for my health and showing it by donating my hair to those who are suffering with cancer and hair loss.
Last week, after a number of years of growing out my hair, it was time to cut it off. More than 10 inches were cut off in four separate pony tails, to be donated to Locks of Love. I've been watching this month as all of my friends have been posting on Facebook what they are thankful for this year, I thought what more is there to be thankful for than your health? I have been blessed with good health, however, not everyone is as lucky. And for the children that deal with illness every day - this year, next year, and any year that came before this one or that will come in the future, that is why I grow out and cut my hair for donation. This is not the first time I've made the big cut for donation, either. My first time I did as an impulse in …
