On the Road with General Jacob Harris!

Recently I was down in Louisville, Kentucky, having a good old time and developing a taste for Bourbon. Seriously, have you ever tried the stuff? It's god awful at first but it grows on you and after a few tastings at local distilleries I actually think I like it. I still have no idea what makes it different from whiskey, and each time it's explained to me it sounds like there isn't really a distinction. but That's another topic.

While in Louisville, I was fortunate enough to meet and get to know the General. Not the animated insurance salesman but a comic that goes by the name of General Jacob Harris. A man who is the living embodiment of a bygone southern era minus the slaves and hatred of the north (I'm guessing). Keeping the spirit of the south alive and well, in the form of a genuine old timey accent. He's a one man preservation society, and someone that I'm very glad to have met.

Enjoy!
