Whiskey vs. whisky — what’s the difference?

If you’ve ever spent time at a liquor store, you’ve likely noticed that one of your favorite spirits has two different spellings. Some whisk(e)ys are spelled with an “e” while others forgo the extra vowel — but why?

Is there a difference between whisky and whiskey?

In short, yes. The product’s spelling is typically linked to its country of origin. American or Irish producers typically spell “whiskey” with the extra letter. Canadian, Scottish and Japanese distillers prefer “whisky.”

Some experts believe that the spelling contrast can be traced back to different translations of the original Irish or Gaelic words for whisk(e)y. Others believe adding the “e” was a way for Irish distillers to differentiate their product from competitors’ whisky blends. Either way, the whisky vs. whiskey debate is one that has confused consumers for centuries.

If you’re struggling to remember which spelling to use, here’s a handy trick. The countries with an “e” in their name (Ireland and the United States) get the whiskey spelling. The countries without an “e” in their name (Canada, Scotland and Japan) spell it whisky.

T​​here’s a simple reason for the spelling difference, as the product’s spelling is typically linked to its country of origin.  (iStock)

Do they taste different?

Kind of. Any whisk(e)y connoisseur is familiar with the many sub-categories of the spirit. So, of course, an Irish whiskey is going to taste different from a Canadian whisky — but that’s because each variety has a specific distillation process. It’s not the spelling alone that dictates how a whisk(e)y will taste, it’s how the liquor was made.

Are there are any exceptions?

You bet! Some brands break from tradition and spell their product however they want — regardless of origin. Maker’s Mark, for example, is an American bourbon brand that opts for the “whisky” spelling.

That means consumers can’t rely on spelling alone when picking up a bottle of their favorite tipple. Look for other clues, like the whisk(e)y’s style and origin.

Or, opt for one of the most popular whisk(e)y brands of 2019 — those can always be a safe bet.

Vegan family claims they have ‘lost friends,’ get ‘bullied’ over lifestyle

A family of five has spoken out about losing friends and being bullied – because they are all vegan.

Jacqui and Ryan Robins, and their three children Skye, 15, Skipp, 14, and Cadan, 5, are all happily vegan, and enjoy a range of delicious meals without meat or dairy.

But the family has admitted that the transition to a vegan lifestyle has not been the easiest – and that they have lost friends over it, and are often met with hostility and aggression.

Jacqui, 44, who was just 8-years-old when she gave up meat, has said that other parents turn their backs on her when she goes to her children’s schools.

And Ryan, 37, has even had online trolls say his dietary choices are disrespectful to his late father, a “highly-respected” butcher.

But the family have admitted that the transition to a vegan lifestyle has not been the easiest – and that they have lost friends over it, and are often met with hostility and aggression.  (SWNS)

MEN FINED FOR EATING RAW SQUIRRELS AT VEGAN EVENT, CAUSING ‘SIGNIFICANT DISTRESS’ TO ATTENDEES

Meanwhile, middle-child Skipp said he is targeted at school over his veganism, and regularly has meat waved in his face.

But despite this, the family, from Probus, Cornwall, England, passionately defends their lifestyle – and hopes to an end to the misconception that vegans are “militant” or “crazy”.

“Passion is misunderstood to be aggression or hatred,” Jacqui, a nutritionist, said. “There seems to be some kind of divide where people meet vegans with aggression and resistance, when you are just trying to raise awareness about practices that people should know about.”

“I know there are so many good, kind people making choices that they wouldn’t make if they knew the reality,” she explained.

It all began when Jacqui went vegetarian at age 8 after realizing for the first time that animals went into her shepherd’s pie.

But two years ago, after watching “horrifying” documentaries and researching the “reality” of dairy-farming processes, the mom decided to ditch dairy, too.

“I saw a video that went into the reality of the dairy industry. I was horrified and straight away I didn’t want anything to do with the dairy products,” she said. “I thought, if I couldn’t cope with watching it happen, but I was buying the product, I was inadvertently funding it.”

Her son Skipp soon followed suit, after watching 2017 documentary “The Land of Hope and Glory” with his mother – all about the UK’s farming practices.

“All of the kids have made their own decisions and have recognized why they are vegan,” Jacqui said. “Some parents say ‘you’re not having that and that’, but we wanted the kids to understand why we do it, take on the information and decide for themselves.”

For oldest child Skye, the transition took a little longer – because she was afraid to watch the documentaries.

VEGAN BLOGGER EATING MEAT AGAIN, CLAIMS DIET CAUSED ‘EARLY MENOPAUSE’

But the teen said: “Once I watched them it was easy. I now want to know where my food has come from and how.”

Youngest sibling Cadan was switched to vegan milk alternatives when he was younger, after suffering a variety of digestive issues from dairy milk.

But his mom said: “Even Cadan understands exactly – he knows that the baby animals suffer and are taken from their mommies and he doesn’t believe in that.”

And as well as the immediate family, the Robins’ influence has encouraged Jacqui’s father John, 75, and his wife Sarah, to follow suit.

But for dad Ryan, the journey to veganism was very different – as he grew up surrounded by the farming industry, and was a frequent visitor to slaughterhouses.

“Dad was a highly respected butcher and worked part-time on a farm and neighbors would bring animals around to be skinned and plucked,” he said. “It wasn’t abnormal for me to be around dead animals for much of my life.”

“I would help put animals on trailers and get the animals into the slaughterhouses and it was all normal to me,” Ryan continued. “I witnessed chickens being killed on the farm, I worked on the turkey line just before Christmas and I always just thought ‘we need animals to be healthy and strong’.”

He initially went vegan for health reasons – after his father passed away, and Jacqui’s mother was diagnosed with bowel cancer.

“The main thing we do is swap meat for beans, lentils and chickpeas. We eat lots of fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds,” the parents said. “We then replace meat with legumes and swap dairy milk and cheese to plant-based alternatives.” (iStock)

“I wanted us and our family to live a life as healthy and as nutritiously as possible, so that we could live as long as possible,” Ryan said.

The family says that a common misconception about vegans is that they are “militant” and “crazy.” But they claim that their problem is not with other people’s decision to eat meat, but the refusal to understand the processes behind meat and dairy.

Jacqui says she doesn’t want vegans to be perceived as these things, but that she wants to inform people, by explaining the processes to them. And the family often does this through social media – but this has led to relationships with friends and family breaking down entirely.

“A lot of people don’t realize, and I think we are manipulated by the industry to think everything is happy and everything is great,” she said. “I think that it is corrupt to sell a product without transparency.”

“So when I started posting about it and raising awareness, I lost a lot of my friendships – because they were telling me to be quiet about it,” she continued.

“If I had just gone vegan and kept quiet about it, my friends would have probably left me alone,” Jacqui elaborated. “But the breaking of friendships was mostly because we wanted to inform people.”

“Passion is misunderstood to be aggression or hatred. I have been to parent’s evenings and had people turn their backs to me,” she said. “They would rather do that than engage in a conversation that will make them feel uncomfortable.”

Living in Cornwall, the family are faced with an added pressure being vegan as they are completely surrounded by agricultural farming. Many of the children’s classmates are from farming families and farming backgrounds.

But the parents want to put to bed ideas that all vegans are anti-farmers.

“We are not against farmers, they are intelligent people that we need in this world – it’s the process we are against and the lack of transparency,” Ryan said.  “If we are moving towards a vegan world we will need farmers and we want to work with them – because we need them.”

“My friends are supportive but people do view vegans as wanting to take down farmers, and I understand it because farmers are their families,” Skipp added.

Jacqui and Ryan said that, for their family, veganism is as simple as replacing meat with chickpeas, lentils and beans now that vegan alternatives are so readily available.

“The main thing we do is swap meat for beans, lentils and chickpeas. We eat lots of fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds,” the parents said. “We then replace meat with legumes and swap dairy milk and cheese to plant-based alternatives.”

“A lot of people think a vegan diet is expensive and if you were buying processed vegan food, it would be, but just replacing meat with things like lentils is really simple,” they went on. “You can still have a processed vegan diet and not be healthy but we try to make ours whole foods and plant based by utilizing nuts and seeds.”

“As long as we do that we seem to be thriving. Everywhere we go to eat out we can have pretty much anything,” the couple said. “We don’t feel like we are missing out.”

British Airways passenger slams ‘unbelievably uncomfortable’ 9-hour flight, carrier apologizes

Reps for British Airways have apologized to a passenger after his seat and entertainment screen broke, along with the bathroom door ,during the flight.

Mark Chalk, who paid $1,062 for his recent flight from Mumbai to London, slammed the airline after he was also given a flatbread with his meal which looked like “rats had got to it”.

Chalk, from Bingley, West Yorkshire, England, complained on Twitter after being given the meal during the ten hour flight.

The 38-year-old posted to Twitter: “Not a good flight. Broken seat which kept reclining, unbelievably uncomfortable, subzero temperatures. Food that looked like rats had got to it first and even the toilet door fell off midflight. Oh well, at least I can watch some films for 9.5 hours. Nope.”

COUPLE CLAIMS UNITED AIRLINES UNFAIRLY KICKED THEM OFF FLIGHT: ‘WE WERE TRAUMATIZED’

Another image of his chicken curry shows an object which he says appears to be an herb stalk.

The man was also unable to use his inflight entertainment as he shows in a video the machine was unable to stay in position.

He also said the toilet door fell off, his seat was broken and it was freezing cold in the cabin during his flight earlier this month.

“I was just disappointed with the food. Normally it’s fine as I do that same flight a lot. I think it was an herb stalk or something but it was hard and woody,” Chalk said.

He was also left stunned by the broken toilet, adding: “The toilet door was fully off in my hands. The stewardess said she had never seen it before in her 15 years of service.”

“She thinks someone must have been unsure on how to exit and been pushing it too hard. They are just clipped on so can come away with enough force,” he said.

The passenger said that wasn’t the only problem, with a cold cabin and thin seats.

“The heat was an issue as it was super cold [and] the seat was really uncomfortable,” he claimed. “Everything the lady behind me put on her tray, I could feel it through the seat.”

“The plane seemed very old so maybe that’s the reason,” Chalk said.

A spokesman for British Airways said: “We pride ourselves on the quality of service we offer on board, and are investing $8.1 billion for our customers to refresh our aircraft fleet and improve the catering across all cabins. We are sorry that our standards fell below our customer’s expectation on this occasion.”

However, this isn’t the only time people have complained about food on the national airline.

In July, a passenger was horrified to be served fare that looked like “dog food” on his $875 flight from Texas to London.

Erik Booher, from Houston shared pictures from the flight of what appears to be chicken and vegetables in a congealed creamy sauce and an unidentifiable dish that looks like it was scooped from a pond.

Passenger Sandra Arthur also complained after being served a “soggy and disgusting” breakfast on a $1,500 flight.

After raising the issue, she was then given a cold croissant instead.

One woman even said she was left bed-ridden during her holiday after being served moldy food while travelling business class with the airline.

Pennsylvania lawmaker pleads guilty to driving drunk at McDonald’s drive-thru

A Pennsylvania state representative is on a month of house arrest after pleading guilty to driving drunk at a McDonald’s drive-thru in Harrisburg earlier this year.

Dauphin County court records indicate Democratic Rep. John Galloway of Levittown pleaded guilty last week in what was his second drunken-driving arrest since 2011.

Galloway is apologizing and says he’s working to put the arrest behind him.

His previous arrest was resolved by participation in a diversion program designed for first-time, nonviolent offenders, so the May violation counts as his second offense.

The 59-year-old Galloway underwent a month-long inpatient treatment program in July and August, after the state budget was finished.

He doesn’t expect to miss fall voting sessions in the House.

California winery apologizes after denying wedding venue to same-sex couple, announces policy change

The owners of one California winery have apologized after reps for the private estate rejected a same-sex couple’s request to hold their upcoming wedding at venue. After public outcry, the management announced a policy change in that all couples are now welcome to rent out their winery and wedding venue, regardless of gender or sexual orientation.

Ahead of their nuptials, Dezanea Reyes and Alexandria Biddle recently contacted Viaggio Estate and Winery seeking information on the Acampo venue, HuffPost reports. On Sept. 5, the couple was shocked to receive an email from a wedding coordinator explaining why the women were welcome to hold their reception – but not the actual ceremony – there.

According to the outlet, the Viaggio staffer told the women that the winery’s owners, Larry and Teri Lawrence, held “very strong personal religious beliefs” on marriage as a union between heterosexual couples only and that they had never held a same-sex wedding there.

BRIDE-TO-BE ATTACKS WEDDING PLANNER OVER FAILED TRIP TO DENNY’S

“[The owners] understand that California statutory law prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation, and they don’t like to think they would ever discriminate on that basis even if a law allowed them to do so. However, the owner also has a very strong personal religious belief regarding marriage, which is for marriage to be between heterosexual couples only,” the wedding coordinator told Reyes and Biddle, as per the Los Angeles Times. “They believe that the U.S. Constitution and the California Constitution protect these religious beliefs and their right to express them.”

Stunned, the women shared the news to a local LGBTQ community Facebook group, the San Francisco Chronicle reports, so that others could “be aware” of the business’ policies.

“I understand and am not opposed to people having their own personal religious beliefs [but] I just fell shunned by people who do not know me,” Reyes wrote online. “I will still have a beautiful wedding when my time comes. I just want others to be aware of this venue … so our LGBTQ community knows about this venue so when they do start looking [for wedding venues], they can be aware.”

Her post caught the eye of LGBTQ activist and local comedian Nikki Levy, who reached out to Viaggio herself, seeking more information, the Times reports.

The woman received a similar response from the venue’s wedding and events director, detailing that while the business was welcome, it was “the actual ceremony that would be violating [the owner’s] personal religious beliefs,” according to screenshots shared to Facebook.

“I couldn’t believe that this would happen in California, and I couldn’t believe that someone would be so openly homophobic,” Levy told KRCA.

Frustrated, she called out the establishment on Facebook on Sept. 10, charging others to speak out against the winery in a post that has since been shared over 220 times.

Soon after, owner Teri Lawrence released a statement apologizing for causing “anyone pain” and announcing a policy change on the matter for the business.

“Viaggio Winery welcomes all couples, regardless of gender of sexual orientation, to our winery and wedding venue, including all wedding ceremonies. It is our hope that all will feel welcomed and respected at our winery, which has been our home since 2012,” she said in a release, according to the Times.

“In recent communication with potential visitors, I tried to explore options for celebrations that would accommodate both my religious beliefs and the expectations of our community. I realize now that contrary to my intent, this was hurtful to the people involved,” she continued.

“Our policy has been changed, effective immediately. All couples are welcome to hire out facilities for weddings and the celebrations that go with them,” Lawrence concluded. “I am sincerely sorry to have caused anyone pain at a time that should be joyous.”

Though Reyes and Biddle now intend to celebrate their wedding day elsewhere, they are glad the Lawrence has realized the error of their ways, according to HuffPost.

“At the end of the day, love is love,” Reyes told KRCA. “I’m hoping for the best for [Viaggio] and in a way I hope this opens their eyes that they should be open to other people.”

Reps for the winery were not immediately available to offer further comment on the story.

Vaper, 18, suing e-cigarette maker Juul after docs say he has lungs of a 70-year-old: reports

An Illinois student-athlete is suing the e-cigarette company Juul after doctors said he now has lungs similar to those of a 70-year-old man.

Adam Hergenreder, of Gurnee, who used e-cigarettes for more than a year and a half, claims he was a victim of deceptive marketing by the San Francisco company, according to the lawsuit, which was filed Friday in Lake County Circuit Court.

“To put it mildly, Adam didn’t stand a chance to avoid getting hooked on these toxic timebombs,” Hergenreder’s lawyer, Antonio Romanucci, told Chicago’s FOX 32.

“To put it mildly, Adam didn’t stand a chance to avoid getting hooked on these toxic timebombs.”

Hergenreder received the bad diagnosis about his lungs after he was hospitalized late last month for nausea and breathing trouble, the station reported.

“It was scary to think about that — that little device did that to my lungs,” Hergenreder told Chicago’s WGN-TV, recalling the diagnosis.

The student wrestler told the station he used both nicotine and THC products when he vaped – and now it’s unclear whether his lungs will ever fully recover.

“I was a varsity wrestler before this,” he said, “and I might not ever be able to wrestle because that’s a very physical sport and my lungs might not be able to hold that exertion. … It’s sad.”

“I was a varsity wrestler before this, and I might not ever be able to wrestle because that’s a very physical sport and my lungs might not be able to hold that exertion. … It’s sad.”

— Adam Hergenreder, 18, plaintiff in lawsuit against Juul

Hergenreder is among hundreds of vapers across the U.S. who have contracted lung illnesses from e-cigarettes.

On Thursday, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said 380 cases had been reported across 36 states, correcting from a previously reported number of 450.

“The previous case count was higher because it reported possible cases that were under investigation by states. The current number includes only confirmed and probable cases reported by states to CDC after classification,” the CDC said in its update.

There have been six vaping-related deaths to date, in California, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Minnesota and Oregon.

Doctors say the lung illnesses resemble an inhalation injury, with the body apparently reacting to a caustic substance being breathed in. Symptoms have included shortness of breath, fatigue, chest pain, diarrhea, and vomiting.

But the CDC has not yet found a specific cause of the illnesses, and no single product or ingredient has been identified.

On Wednesday, President Trump said his administration was considering a ban on non-tobacco-flavored e-cigarette products, citing nationwide concerns about adverse effects.

Trump referenced those concerns again Friday in a Twitter message.

“While I like the Vaping alternative to Cigarettes,” the president wrote, “we need to make sure this alternative is SAFE for ALL! Let’s get counterfeits off the market, and keep young children from Vaping!

In addition to Juul, Hergenreder’s lawsuit names as a defendant the Waukegan, Ill., gas station where he claims he regularly purchased nicotine-based Juul products when he was underage, FOX 32 reported.

In late August, Juul CEO Kevin Burns called vaping-related illnesses “worrisome,” but said he had no plans to pull the company’s products from the market.

The company’s stock price has tanked since the Trump administration announced plans for the partial ban, the New York Post reported.

‘Soft ghosting’ is the latest terrible breakup term

As if modern dating wasn’t already tricky enough, a confusing new breakup trend is said to be rocking romantics — and their cell phones — in all the wrong ways.

Apparently inspired by the well-known “ghosting” phenomenon, “soft ghosting” is described as slowly breaking off communication with someone by “liking” their text messages, but offering no genuine response or continuation of a conversation. Humor blog Overheard LA was perhaps the first outlet to share the term a few months back, according to the Huffington Post, and commenters have since had a whole lot to say about the rumored fad.

Over the summer, the blog shared a post defining the terrible “soft ghosting” spectacle as when someone “responds” to conversation by “liking” a message, making them the last person to answer the chat. By doing so, this person may be attempting to break off communication altogether, albeit in a less-than-straightforward way.

MAN CLAIMS DISNEY WORLD TRIP WILL BE RUINED BY GIRLFRIEND’S NEWBORN NIECE – AND REDDIT USERS AGREE

However, this play puts the recipient in the awkward position of having to “risk double-texting” if they fire off another message.

“I see this kind of communication all the time with my clients. Today’s communication has changed quite a bit as we try to balance phone life and real life,” Ontario-based dating coach Chantal Heide told the Post of the phenomenon.

Heide further advised hopeless romantics who suspect they’ve been so-called “soft ghosted” to take things in stride and be patient in the dating game.

“Singles sometimes feel a loneliness void that they fill by seeking validation from other people,” she said. “That can go wrong or turn to anger when that validation isn’t turning into the instant gratification we’re conditioned to expect with texting.”

The original post defining the term by Overheard LA, meanwhile, clearly struck a nerve with social media users, with the post racking up over 84,000 likes to date.

“Omg I SOFT GHOST everybody,” one commenter cried.

“Oh snap,” another agreed.

Others, meanwhile, weren’t quite so fazed by the fad.

“Who cares?” one wondered.

“Unpopular opinion: double texting is fine and people make too big of a deal about it. There’s a difference between sending a few sentences in different texts and obsessively spamming them,” another said.

In other words of wisdom, singles looking for love should also be wary of other frustrating dating fads that have recently made headlines, including “paper clipping,” “cloaking,” “trickle ghosting,” “pocketing,” “cookie jarring” and “you-turning.”

Connecticut family honors late prankster dad with hilarious obituary

One Connecticut family has honored their late patriarch as the true prankster he was in a hilariously honest obituary that has been widely circulated on social media and left many commenters wishing they had known the “wonderful” man, too.

Joseph “Joe” A. Heller, Jr. passed away on Sept. 8 at age 82, and his daughter Monique memorialized his mischievous life and times in a 1,300-word, must-read obituary, WFSB reports.

In the emotional and entertaining piece, the author shared that her father was born January 1937 in New Haven as the Great Depression rocked the nation, a day and age that “shaped Joe’s formative years and resulted in a lifetime of frugality, hoarding and cheap mischief, often at the expense of others.”

Joe embraced his all-important role as the eldest of five children and proudly “tortured his siblings through a childhood of obnoxious pranks, with his brother, Bob, generally serving as his wingman.”

From pranking others with laxative-laced cakes and even going so far as to name his first dog “Fart,” the funny man worked as a library assistant at Yale Law School Library before making a grand plan with his lifelong friends Ronny Kaiser and Johnny Olson to join the Navy and explore the world together.

“Their plot was thwarted and the three were split up when Joe pulled the ‘long straw’ and was assigned to a coveted base in Bermuda where he joined the ‘Seabees’ construction battalion,” the author wrote, detailing that her father’s military service inspired a lifelong commitment to his country and community. Later in life, Joe served as a town constable, volunteer fireman, crosswalk guard, public works snow plow official, ambulance association member and proud member of the Antique Veterans of Meriden Honor Guard.

A “self-taught” chemist, Joe worked at Cheeseborough-Ponds manufacturing where he met his future wife, Irene, who was reportedly “hoodwinked into thinking he was a charming individual with decorum.”

“Boy, was she ever wrong,” Monique joked. “To this day we do not understand how he convinced our mother, an exceedingly proper woman and a pillar in her church, to sew and create the colorful costumes and props which he used for his antics.”

The couple welcomed three daughters, Michelle, Lisette and Monique, who agreed that growing up with their lively father meant there was never a dull moment in their household.

MAN PROPOSES TO GIRLFRIEND FOR A MONTH WITHOUT HER KNOWING IT, GOES VIRAL

The dedicated father would let the girls “do” his hair and makeup, lovingly crafted their doll furniture and a play kitchen, and often made them forts in the backyard.

When the girls grew up and began dating, their protective dad would typically greet their suitors “by first running their license plates and checking for bald tires.”

“If their vehicle passed inspection, they were invited into the house, where shotguns, harpoons and sheep ‘nutters’ were left clearly on display,” the author said.

As for his one-of-a-kind personality, Joe never met a dog he didn’t like, frequently treasure-hunted at the Essex Dump and was famed as a “consummate napper” who was blessed with the unique ability to fall asleep at any “road, restaurant or friend’s house in Essex.”

Joe was predeceased by his wife Irene, brother Bobby and pet fish Jack. According to Monique, the family was surprised to find the aquatic creature in the freezer last week.

“Left to squabble over his vast fortune, real estate holdings and ‘treasures,’” the Connecticut man leaves behind his three daughters, their partners, and eight grandchildren, who he hoped that at he had taught “at least one of them” to cuss properly.

He is also survived by his siblings Pat, Richard and Kathy, two sisters-in-law and 14 nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, the family jokingly asked for “donations to offset the expense of publishing an exceedingly long obituary” which would have made Joe upset. Or, the family requested, have a cup of coffee with a friend and salute the Joe’s life, or even play a “harmless prank on some unsuspecting sap” in his honor.

More seriously, the Heller family is gathering donations to the Seabee Memorial Scholarship Association in their beloved prankster’s honor.

As for funeral arrangements, a viewing will be held on Thursday night, complete with a “light dinner” as Joe felt that “no get-together was complete without food.”

“Feel free to be as late as you’d like as Joe was never on time for anything because of the aforementioned napping habits,” Monique joked, advising attendees to “dress comfortably” as “Joe despised formality and stuffiness and would really be ticked off if you showed up in a suit.”

More specifically, the family recommends wearing “the most inappropriate T-Shirt that you are comfortable being seen in public with” as the beloved father and grandfather often did.

“Joe faced his death and his mortality, as he did with his life, face on, often telling us that when he dropped dead to dig a hole in the back yard and just roll him in,” the author continued. “Much to his disappointment, he will be properly interred with full military honors (and maybe Jack) next to his wife on Friday.”

In the days since Joe passed, Monique told WFSB that news of the humorous obit has spread all over the country and world, and the family has been flooded with condolences and well-wishes from dozens of people they have never met. Many agreed that they had wished they had known Joe or been part of his family.

“I was writing it kind of as a memoir of my father. His local friends could relate and say, ‘oh, that was a Joe story,’” Joe’s proud daughter said of the now-viral piece.

“What an awesome tribute for a much-loved man. I hope one of his kids or grandchildren got his prankster gene to carry on Joe’s legacy,” one commenter wrote on the obituary.

“Your Dad is laughing his a– off right now. No better tribute to a life well-lived and loved,” another agreed.

“This is how to live your life. The internet is a wonderful thing and this was, hands-down, the best tribute to a life that I’ve ever read,” another said. “To the family and friends – so very sorry for your loss. He sounds like a wonderful guy and someone I would’ve been great friends with.”

“Rest in peace prankster. Don’t lock the gates,” another said.

Chick-fil-A supporters file lawsuit against San Antonio for airport ban

Five Texas fans of Chick-fil-A have filed a lawsuit against the city of San Antonio for its decision to ban the chicken-centric chain from opening up shop in the local airport. In March, city council officials rejected the restaurant’s bid to open a new location in San Antonio International Airport due to the company’s alleged “legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior.”

On Sept. 5, plaintiffs Patrick Von Dohlen, Brian Greco, Kevin Jason Khattar, Michael Knuffke and Daniel Petri filed suit against the city under S.B. 1978, otherwise known as the “Save Chick-fil-A Bill.”

Supporters of the bill argue that the provision, signed by Gov. Greg Abbott in June, defends the fast-food restaurant and protects religious freedoms, while opponents say it discriminates against the LGBTQ community.

The new law stops the government from taking unfavorable action against a business or person for contributing to religious organizations.

CHICK-FIL-A’S TORONTO OPENING STORMED BY PROTESTERS: ‘CLUCK OFF’

“The continued religious ban on Chick-fil-A by the San Antonio City Council has left citizens with no choice but to take this case to court,” Jonathan Saenz, president of conservative group Texas Values Action said of the lawsuit in a statement on Monday, as per The Texas Tribune. “Any other vendor that tries to replace Chick-fil-A at the airport will be doing so under a major cloud of long and costly litigation with the city.”

In the lawsuit, the plaintiffs pushed for the court to declare that the city of San Antonio “violated and continues to violate” the law by banning Chick-fil-A from the San Antonio airport and issue an injunction to block the city and airport shop operator Paradies Lagardère from banning the chain at the air hub in the future. Furthermore, the plaintiffs also hope to issue another injunction to have a Chick-fil-A open at the airport and issue an order to stop the city from “taking any adverse action against Chick-fil-A or any other person or entity, which is based wholly or partly on that person or entity’s support for religious organizations that oppose homosexual behavior” and receive attorney’s fees and other relief.

In response, Laura Mayes, chief communications officer for the city of San Antonio, told the Tribune that the lawsuit “is an attempt by the plaintiffs to improperly use the court to advance their political agenda.”

“Among the many weaknesses in their case, they are trying to rely on a law that did not exist when Council voted on the airport concessions contract,” Mayes said. “We will seek a quick resolution from the Court.”

Reps for Chick-fil-A and the city of San Antonio were not immediately available to offer further comment.

In March, six members of the San Antonio City Council rejected the inclusion of Chick-fil-A from the new Food, Beverage and Retail Prime Concession Agreement for the local airport due to the company’s alleged “legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior.”

“With this decision, the City Council reaffirmed the work our city has done to become a champion of equality and inclusion,” Councilman Roberto Treviño said of the vote, as per News 4 San Antonio. “San Antonio is a city full of compassion, and we do not have room in our public facilities for a business with a legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior.”

“Everyone has a place here, and everyone should feel welcome when they walk through our airport,” he continued.

The day before, Think Progress published tax documents revealing that in 2017, the Chick-fil-A Foundation gave over $1.8 million in charitable donations to some organizations that have come under scrutiny regarding their stance on LGBTQ issues.

Over $1.65 million of that contribution was given to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, which writes in an online “Statement of Faith” that it believes “marriage is exclusively the union of one man and one woman,” and believes “sexual intimacy” should only be expressed “within [that] context,” CBS News reports.

Responding to the news, a rep for Chick-fil-A offered Fox News the following statement on the story.  “The press release issued by Councilmember Treviño was the first we heard of his motion and its approval by the San Antonio City Council. We agree with him that everyone is and should feel welcome at Chick-fil-A,” a spokesperson said. “We have a fundamental code of conduct at Chick-fil-A: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

“We would still welcome the opportunity to have a thoughtful dialogue with the city council and plan to reach out to them. It’s unfortunate that mischaracterizations of our brand have led to decisions like this,” they continued.

“The sole focus of the Chick-fil-A Foundation is to support causes focused on youth and education. We are proud of the positive impact we are making in communities across America and have been transparent about our giving on our web site,” the restaurant rep concluded.

Days after the news of the San Antonio airport ban broke, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced he was opening an investigation into the city’s decision to exclude Chick-fil-A from the contract with the local air hub. In June, Paxton filed a petition in relation to the investigation “to compel the city to hand over documents related to its decision,” according to the Free Beacon.

In recent headlines, on Friday, the grand opening of Chick-fil-A’s first international location in Toronto was met by a large protest Friday by LGBTQ activists, who argued that the chicken-centric chain owner’s historically antigay policies will clash with the culture of Canada’s largest city.

Florida deputy keeps ‘adventure’ alive after finding man’s ashes, family’s heartwarming notes, in bottle

In a serendipitous moment, a Florida sheriff’s deputy came across a bottle discovered on a Walton County beach with a special note inside.

“This bottle contains the ashes of my son, Brian, who suddenly and unexpectedly passed on March 9, 2019. I’m sending him on one last adventure,” the note read.

Sgt. Paula Pendleton was on duty when someone reported finding the glass bottle to the Walton County Sheriff’s Office. The bottle, which was cast into the waters on Aug. 1 from Destin, Fla., held notes, a small bag containing human ashes and four $1 bills, the Walton County Sheriff’s Office shared on Facebook.

Pendleton, who lost her husband suddenly in April 2018 at age 50, was touched by the unexpected find.

In another note found in the bottle, a girl identifying herself as Brian’s daughter shared the heartbreak her family went through, and why they decided to include some of his ashes.

“Hi, my name is Peyton,” the note read. “I am Brian’s daughter. When my father passed, I was 14 years old. It has struck our whole family pretty hard and, so far, it has been a very hard road. But, like my granny said, he loved to be free. So, that’s exactly what we are doing.”

In addition to the messages, there was a list of email addresses and phone numbers for the finder of the bottle to use in order to contact to let the family know where Brian’s journey had taken him.

“If you find it, please call or text me and let me know, then kindly set him free once again,” the note read.

“I am putting the note back into the bottle with Brian’s ashes and delivering it to a friend who is a charter boat captain,” she wrote. “He has offered to bring Brian way out into the Gulf so he can continue his adventure.
