The monks of Norcia make great beer.  You can have it.  They have a third option now.

Your use of my Amazon affiliate link is a major part of my income. It helps to pay for insurance, groceries, everything. Please remember me when shopping online. Thanks in advance.  US HERE – UK HERE> BTW… I changed the search parameter for the links to be more “traditional”. I was tired of seeing books by Jesuits. Check it out. Mind you, I still have no control over what pops up first.

Use FATHERZ10 at checkout

NB: I’ll hold comments with solutions ’till the next day so there won’t be “spoilers” for others.

    Your changing the search parameter is much appreciated! I, too was tired of the Jesuit books.

    2. Rd7 Bxg2
