1888's Take: "I was 16 years old sitting with my friend Sean on the steps of our high school dormitory together. Me, listening to the wind rustle through the ginkgo leaves, and him, bobbing his head between his oversized headphones. "What are you listening to?" I asked... he didn't say a word, just put the headphones over my ears and I immediately closed my eyes. It was automatic as if my heart and head knew this was something special. It was the first time I had ever heard the song Freebird by Lynard Skynard... I listened to it once... then twice... and almost made it through a third time, but it's a long song and my friend grew impatient for his headphones back. It was that moment, having heard the strength of the Van Zant brothers soulful 'n southern vocals and Alan Collins eternal soloing that I elevated my standards for what good, no... GREAT music was suppose to be. Lynard Skynard, you'll always have a special place in my soul." - N

 ~Whiskey~

“I’ve always loved whiskey, my favorites being Basil Hayden’s and of course 4 Roses because it was established in 1888…but to me it’s a romantic spirit…the whiskey that is...very much like my own…You see, whiskey it holds the light, golden brown and yellow amber so when you hold up that ½ full Gibraltar glass to the light… it looks a little bit of sweet honey. If its good it will taste smooth and mellow…with just enough bite to remind you its there but leave you without regrets…There’s a romance to whiskey that reminds me to not take life to seriously and to distill the spirit out of each moment. Cause the whiskey knows…that’s all we got.”

~Florida~

Written history begins with the arrival of Europeans to Florida; the Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de León in 1513 made the first textual records. The state was the first mainland realm of the United States to be settled by Europeans. Thus, 1513 marked the beginning of the American Frontier.
