addam's ale

by dittto in water

Adam's ale
Meaning = Water

Origin

'Adam's ale' is a jokey reference to the only drink available to Adam - the first man, in the biblical and Koranic traditions. It alludes to the simplicity and purity of life in the biblical Eden before the fall. This is in contrast to the association of strong drink with evil and the devil.

      well technically i guess all of north america was indian mainland :( not so sure about the east coast but washington state really seems to respect that greatly. a majority of our towns and counties have indian name references..or the best the white people could do at trying to translate them! seattle where i live was named after the great indian chief..Chief Sealth..though he spellt it Si’ahl.
      but as far as the entire country..alot of the water bodies are named from indian references, but in visiting the east side you would never know there were indians ever there except from the names, well from the areas i saw anyway..but the tribal presence in washington is very great :]

      anytime! do highly value their ways..really makes me appreciate nature more, they gave so much life and value into all things nature..sad that those values are hard to find in society nowadays :(

      I do agree with you... but lately, more and more people esp in our country are becoming one with nature, so there's still hope I guess...

      well not by my birth certificate..but have been spelling it that way for over twenty years..was because i had four or five close friends named adam as well and for the fact that the only subject in school i ever liked was math..so i was either called add or double d when i was growing up :D

      i can understand you would do it because your friends had the same name but because of math i hate math ...i had mark 4 at the end of the year at school and the worst was 5 well my teacher didnt give me 5 only because she was sorry to give me so bad mark

    This is what I'm saying! My long wait is over!
    The long expo is wonderful and the caption 'Adam's ale the only drink for Adam' is just perfect. It's just like Adam's shot the only shot that exceeds perfection!

      No problem at all Addam! It was worth it. It will make me feel bad if I waited for nothing. So no worries at all.
