The craft beer craze is big in the USA. Cities have embraced different levels of enthusiasm about craft beers, although Portland (OR) and Minneapolis (MN) are commonly listed. I know my Cincinnati (OH) is all goo-goo about crafty brews.
But nonprofit beer? A pub operating for the purpose for donating its profits to designated charities? Sounds odd, but this is unique, so worth the 6 minutes. After watching the video below, you can also read more about the Oregon Public House by clicking here.

One of my friends describes Italy as “one long museum.” The country offers so much that it is actually very hard to describe. Then again, being that my heritage is all Italian and with 4 first cousins and an aunt there, I admit being a bit biased. Enjoy with time-lapse of various parts of this beautiful country.
The sky broke like an egg into full sunset and the water caught fire. (Pamela Hansford Johnson, critic)
During 2 weeks in February in Yosemite National Park, the light from a setting sun lines up to not only illuminate a waterfall and its mist, the light also gives the water a fiery appearance. Sit back and enjoy this spectacular natural phenomenon.
