  1. It can also be used as a big bucket, water, ice, and everything else up to ten quarter. So it is great for a BBQ party in backyard. I used it to keep beer, drink and watermelon cool with a full bucket of ice. Carry and store this collapsible sink is very easy, it is light weighted and take very little space.
  2. “It was an exclusive beer that you could only get by showing your hospital ID,” says owner Eric Ruta. Laws prevented Magnify from simply giving away their beer, so a four-pack of “Round of Applause” went for just a dollar each, and all 600 four-packs were prepaid via donations, so no frontline worker paid anything.
  3. In 1957, 'A Pub with No Beer' became the first Australian single to become a gold record and was the biggest-selling record by an Australian at the time. It was the first single by an Australian artist to enter the British charts, reaching number three.

Welcome to Watermelon Gaming!!! Have fun with a selection of games and don't worry if there isn't one you want to play just leave me a message in the forums and I will add them as soon as I get a chance. We have over 250+ games and counting. You can play anywhere with Internet and feel free to take the games if you want.

Watermelon is the Lycopene Leader in fresh produce, having higher concentrations of lycopene than any other fresh fruit or vegetable. In fact, fresh watermelon contains higher levels of lycopene than fresh tomatoes - a 2-cup serving of watermelon contains and average of 18.16 mg and one medium-sized tomato contains 4 mg.

Heart Healthy

Watermelon has heart healthy properties because it is naturally low in saturated fat, total fat and cholesterol.

A recent study by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) about watermelon consumption and heart healthy benefits was completed and published March 2007. The NWPB has four new structure-function claims derived from this study:

  • Watermelon consumption increases free arginine and citrulline, which can help maintain cardiovascular function.
  • Eating watermelon can help maintain cardiovascular health.
  • Watermelon has amino acids such as citrulline and arginine that help maintain the arteries.
  • Watermelon amino acids citrulline and arginine can help maintain blood flow and heart health.

5-A-Day turns to Fruit and Veggies!

The Produce for Better Health Foundation, American Cancer Institute, ACIR Report indicates people who eat five or more servings of fruit and vegetables every day have half the risk of developing cancer as those who only eat one or two servings per day. That's a very good reason to eat your fruit and vegetables! Look for recipes that per serving contain at least one serving of fruits and vegetables with no more than 30% of the calories from fat, 10% from saturated fat, 100 milligrams cholesterol and 480 milligrams sodium

  • Watermelon Is Practically A Multivitamin Unto Itself
    A 2-cup serving of watermelon is an excellent source of Vitamins A, B6 and C.
  • Vitamin A found in watermelon is important for optimal eye health.
  • Vitamin B6 found in watermelon is used by the body to manufacture brain chemicals (neurotransmitters), such as serotonin, melatonin and dopamine, which preliminary research shows may help the body cope with anxiety and panic.
  • Vitamin C in watermelons can help to bolster your immune system's defenses against infections and viruses and is known to stimulate the immune system and protect against free radical damage.
  • Potassium
    A two-cup serving of watermelon is also a source of potassium*, a mineral necessary for water balance and found inside of every cell. People with low potassium levels can experience muscle cramps. A two-cup serving has less than 10 percent of the daily reference value for potassium.

How a watermelon is grown

Producers generally grow watermelon in rows, 8-12 feet apart, in raised beds 4-12 inches high composed of fertilized sand or sandy loam.

Tiny watermelon plants from a transplant nursery are implanted in the beds. Honeybees must pollinate the yellow watermelon blossom. Even the sterile, seedless watermelon requires pollination in order to fruit. In a month, a vine may spread to as much as 6-8 feet. Within 60 days, the vine produces its first watermelons and the crop is ready to harvest within 90 days.

The rind of a watermelon is deceptively hardy looking, but is actually quite fragile, requiring handpicking. Watermelon producers look for a pale or buttery yellow spot on the bottom, indicating ripeness.

History of Watermelon

Skins

Watermelon is thought to have originated in the Kalahari Desert of Africa. The first recorded watermelon harvest occurred nearly 5,000 years ago in Egypt and is depicted in Egyptian hieroglyphics on walls of their ancient buildings. Watermelons were often placed in the burial tombs of kings to nourish them in the afterlife.

From there, watermelons spread throughout countries along the Mediterranean Sea by way of merchant ships. By the 10th century, watermelon found its way to China, which is now the world's number one producer of watermelons.

The 13th century found watermelon spread through the rest of Europe via the Moors.

Southern food historian, John Egerton, believes watermelon made its way to the United States with African slaves as he states in his book, 'Southern Food.'

The United States currently ranks fourth in worldwide production of watermelon. Forty-four states grow watermelons with Florida, Texas, California, Georgia and Arizona consistently leading the country in production.

HOW DO WE GET SEEDLESS WATERMELONS?

The Watermelon Itself

Beer Landwatermelon Gaming

Seedless watermelons were invented over 50 years ago, and they have few or no seeds. When we say seeds, we are talking about mature seeds, the black ones. Oftentimes, the white seed coats where a seed did not mature are assumed to be seeds. But this isn’t the case! They are perfectly safe to swallow while eating, and don’t worry - no seeds will grow in your stomach.

So, how are seedless watermelons grown? Chromosomes are the building blocks that give characteristics, or traits, to living things including plants and watermelons. Watermelon breeders discovered that crossing a diploid plant (bearing the standard two sets of chromosomes) with a tetraploid plant (having four sets of chromosomes) results in a fruit that produces a triploid seed. (Yes, it has three sets of chromosomes). This triploid seed is the seed that produces seedless watermelons!

In other words, a seedless watermelon is a sterile hybrid which is created by crossing male pollen for a watermelon, containing 22 chromosomes per cell, with a female watermelon flower with 44 chromosomes per cell. When this seeded fruit matures, the small, white seed coats inside contain 33 chromosomes, rendering it sterile and incapable of producing seeds. This is similar to the mule, produced by crossing a horse with a donkey. This process does not involve genetic modification.

How They're Planted

The seedless watermelons need seeded watermelons in order to be pollinated and set fruit. In a watermelon field where they're growing seedless, roughly 25% of the plants are seeded varieties and 75% are seedless varieties. Hives of bees are brought into the fields to cross-pollinate from the seeded plants to the seedless plants. Without this cross-pollination, the seedless watermelon plants would not produce fruit.

Seedless watermelon varieties are more difficult to grow than their seedier cousins but it can be done. Your best bet is to germinate these pricier seeds indoors at an optimal 85º F, and plant them outdoors after soil temperatures have warmed to at least 70º F. It's easier to buy melon transplants and set them out when temperatures are in the 80s. Because seedless melons are sterile and produce little pollen, you'll need to also plant a normal pollinator variety of watermelon in the patch so the bees can pollinate the flowers, contributing to the development of flavorful, well-formed fruit.

SELECTION, STORAGE & HANDLING

How to choose a watermelon

It's as easy as 1, 2, 3.

  1. Look the watermelon over.
    You are looking for a firm, symmetrical watermelon that is free from bruises, cuts or dents.
  2. Lift it up.
    The watermelon should be heavy for its size. Watermelon is 92% water, most of the weight is water.
  3. Turn it over.
    The underside of the watermelon should have a creamy yellow spot from where it sat on the ground and ripened in the sun.

De-seeding a watermelon:

If you would like to de-seed a watermelon, here's a nice and easy way to do it. This is perfect to dice up into chunks for a snack, use in salsa, mix into drinks or anything else you would use watermelon for.

Be sure to wash your watermelon
and knives before cutting into it.

  1. Cut watermelon in half, then in quarters
  2. Cut through the flesh of the melon along the seed line with a pairing knife. Now, lift off the piece you just cut out.
  3. Using a fork, scrape the seeds from the piece you just removed and from the remaining flesh on the rind.

Storage and Handling of watermelon

  1. Handle your whole watermelon gently, to avoid internal bruising.
  2. Wash hands.
  3. Wash your watermelon in running water, rinse well and pat dry.
  4. Cut the flesh from the rind, and cut into 1-inch cubes.
  5. Place in covered container and refrigerate immediately.
  6. Keep cut watermelon refrigerated until consumed, up to 3-4 days.

Choosing and Handling Pre-Cut Watermelon

  1. The flesh of the watermelon should appear dense and firm.
  2. Refrigerate to preserve maximum freshness.
  3. Cover the cut surface of a melon with plastic wrap to prevent the flesh from becoming mushy.
  4. Store chunks of watermelon in covered plastic containers.

Quick Tips for Watermelon Cubes and Wedges

Cutting up a watermelon is faster and easier than you may think! All you have to do is cut it in a grid pattern, almost like you were making a checkerboard on the surface of the fruit. Cubes will tumble out ready to eat.

Beer Landwatermelon Gaming

Quick Watermelon Cubes

  1. Take a quarter watermelon and lay it on the rind with the interior facing up.
  2. Place knife about 3/4 of an inch down from the peak of the wedge. Holding the knife parallel to the far side of the fruit and starting at edge of rind, cut a horizontal line through the fruit all the way down to the rind.
  3. Next, place the knife blade 3/4 of an inch lower and make the same cut. Repeat.
  4. Next, turn the fruit to the other side and make the same horizontal cuts.
  5. And last, starting at edge of the rind, make vertical cuts 3/4 inch apart all the way across.
  6. Cubes will tumble out ready to eat!

Quick Watermelon Wedges

  1. Take a quarter watermelon and lay it on the rind with the interior facing up. Place knife about two inches from end of wedge.
  2. Cut off the curved end of the fruit. Place knife about ¾ to 1 inch (or desired thickness) into fruit and cut straight down.
  3. Repeat until entire quarter is in wedges.

'A Pub with No Beer'
Single by Slim Dusty
B-side'Saddle Boy'
Released1957
Recorded1957
GenreCountry
LabelColumbia
Songwriter(s)Gordon Parsons
Pub with No Beer sign in Ingham Australia

'A Pub with No Beer' is the title of a humorous country song made famous by country singers Slim Dusty (in Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States) and Bobbejaan Schoepen (in Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany and Austria).

The song was written about his local pub at Taylors Arm, New South Wales, adapted by Gordon Parsons from the original poem 'A Pub Without Beer' by Irish poet Dan Sheahan of Ingham, North Queensland, in the Day Dawn Hotel, now known as Lees Hotel, Ingham, Queensland. The song gently explores the 'devastation' caused to a pub and its community when its beer supply is interrupted.

The song was first performed in public by Gordon Parsons in 1954 at the 50th birthday of George Thomas, a resident of Creek Ridge Road, Glossodia (near Windsor in Sydney). It was performed with an extra verse that was dropped from Slim Dusty's recorded version, because it contained elements of blue humour.

In January 2018, as part of Triple M's 'Ozzest 100', the 'most Australian' songs of all time, 'A Pub with No Beer' was ranked number 45.[1]

Australia[edit]

In 1957, 'A Pub with No Beer' became the first Australian single to become a gold record and was the biggest-selling record by an Australian at the time. It was the first single by an Australian artist to enter the British charts, reaching number three.[2] In 1959, Dusty wrote and recorded a sequel, 'The Answer To A Pub With No Beer', explaining the reason for the beer delivery truck's failure to arrive and describing the townsmen's efforts to solve the problem. Another sequel, 'The Sequel to a Pub with No Beer', shows that the town now has a guaranteed delivery, thanks to air freight.

In May 2001, Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA) celebrated its 75th anniversary by naming the Best Australian Songs of all time. As decided by a 100 strong industry panel, 'A Pub With No Beer' was ranked fifth on the list.[3] In June 2008, the song was included in the National Film and Sound Archive's Sounds of Australia registry.[4]

Europe[edit]

Belgian entertainer Bobbejaan Schoepen recorded the song in several languages. His Dutch version ('Café zonder bier') debuted in 1959 and his German version ('Ich steh an der Bar und ich habe kein Geld') in 1960. Both became number one hits in Belgium and in Austria. The song remained in the German charts for 30 weeks, where it reached number six.

'A Pub with No Beer' is also the theme song and title of a 1962 Belgian-British film starring Bobbejaan Schoepen, also known as De Ordonnans and At the Drop of a Head.[5] In 1999, the alternative rock band Dead Man Ray wrote (partly) a new soundtrack for the film and went on tour with it in the Low Countries. The band also covered the song and released it on one of their albums.

Canada[edit]

This song was very popular in Ontario, Canada, following a strike by brewery workers. Starting on Thursday, August 7, 1958, when 1,200 Brewers Warehousing Ltd. (Brewers Retail) employees walked off their jobs over pay, layoffs became industry wide as retail beer was no longer available. Originally aimed at Brewers Warehousing, the dispute quickly spread as contracts at various breweries across Ontario came up for renewal.[6] Their actions stopped the flow of beer from various breweries for 48 days and sales of hard liquor increased 25 percent. Non-unionized Formosa Spring operated at full capacity until it ran out of beer August 29, 1958. Many people purchased beer smuggled in from US and Quebec with bootleggers collecting up to C$20.00 for a case of 24 pints (previously sold at C$4.25). This song could be heard daily on most radio stations during the beer strike.

In 1964, Benny Barnes from Beaumont, Texas, Americanized the lyrics to 'A Pub with No Beer' and titled it 'Bar with No Beer.'[7] The song became a regional hit on the Hall-Way label.[8][better source needed] The melody of the song is almost identical to Stephen Foster's 'Beautiful Dreamer'.[9] 'Bar with No Beer' was recorded by Tom T. Hall in 1985 on the album Song in a Seashell.[10]Johnny Cash, who also performed the song, advised him to record it.[9]
