Cal,

My wife uses it as a base for some of her bitters.

And humans are also the only animals that drink root beer.

They gave him a little vial of 'em as some kind of keepsake.

Anyway, although calcium is definitely the culprit, the Doc said milk probably wasn't the cause. What was? He had a daily habit chewing Tums (calcium antacid tablets).

Just finished my growler of Tower10 IPA. Yum. This is one thing I love about living on the west coast. So many small/medium sized microbreweries. A few months ago we had beer week here in SD and the breweries would trade kegs with each other. So you could go to one brew pub and their specialty beer would be one from another local brewery it was a blast going out and trying different things.

Later tonight I am likely gonna sit down with a glass of bourbon (and an ice cube).

As for kidney stones, I drank around half a gallon of milk a day from the time I was 9 until about 3 years ago. The only reason I stopped is the sheer number of calories in milk (even skim has a lot when you are drinking 1/2 gal). My family would literally go through 6-10 gallons of milk a week. None of us have ever had a kidney stone, on top of that up until last year none of us "kids" had ever broken a bone (my sis broke her elbow when a dog she was walking tripped her up and she hit the curb). I blew out my knee (dislocated 2.75") and still didn't break any bones.
