Listen up! The beer drinker on your holiday list will love the Talking Beer Opener. The best thing about it is that it doesn't keep count.
$7.95 plus shipping and handling from Pacific Direct, 5795 NE Minder Rd., Poulsbo, Wash. 98370; 1-800-535-0131; Internet: www.talkingbeeropener.com

Suggested by Rosanne Strassberg of Miami.

If there's one thing that beer drinkers need, it's encouragement to drink more beer. Unfortunately, there are times when the beer drinker finds himself in a situation where there are no other humans around to perform this vital function.

If you have such a person on your holiday list, then this is the perfect gift item: a beer-bottle opener that, thanks to the miracle of electronics, says, ``Oh, yeah! Time for a beer!''

That's all this item says, and it says it every time it is activated. It could be 7 a.m. on a Wednesday morning, but as far as this item is concerned, it's BREWSKI TIME! The lucky recipient of this gift may never make it to work again.

We understand that this is also the Official Kitchen Implement of the Taliban.
