|What's a redneck ? Yes, well obviously I can understand from the context,

It's from working outdoors all the time, plus a liquid intake of beer

Naaaah! A friend had a rural mailbox on a wood post at the edge of
the road. Vandals kept knocking it down with their pickup trucks.
Solution: Drill out center of wood post with a lathe, insert 4"
thick-wall steel pipe, set it in 24" of concrete.
They hit it one more time... end of problem ;-)

I love to cook with wine. Sometimes I even put it in the food.
