    Went to the local Brewery yesterday and found out they make a 11% 9% and 7% in a bottle not from the tap. I had no idea until I mentioned I can't drink multiple glasses of 3.2% which is all the provide on tap.

    Meanwhile this morning this was hanging on the wall at the Starbucks / Restaurant here at the Uni.........

    You do know that beer and machine tools don't really go together well, right? I still have all my fingers and want to keep it that way.

    I wonder why it took so long for someone to say that LOL. I smoke when I drink, and I don't smoke in the house, so I drink in the garage. Which happens to be the home of the machine tools. I don't risk my fingers.

    When dealing with hazardous equipment, drinking settles the nerves -- and attenuates the pain of mistakes.

    Ever notice how the drunk driver is rarely the victim of his own stupidity? It's usually the people in the other car. I wonder why. I've been told it's because the drunk doesn't "see it coming" and tense up. I don't buy that.

    Tonight, I rarely mix drinks usually chase it with something. But, tonight I wanted a change, drinking a "Mudslide"

    As I raise my glass, “Na zdorovye!”

    We had White Russians tonight, so your toast is quite appropriate. But then we moved on to the Buffalo Trace bourbon. I can only take one sweet drink before getting real.

    Very interesting charts showing British drinking habits:

    Well I'll be... according to that graph, there are actually 0% adults drinking in the UK while at sea! :p:D

    I'll be hitting the pool everyday to work off those extra calories.

    This beer is the perfect marriage of two recipes ... an IPA performing outstanding synergy with a red ale ... a beautiful balance of bitterness and "smokeyness":

    That reminded me of when in the Antarctic campaigns (1970 and 1971), the 4-people crew of every landing boat bringing cargo or people ashore, was allowed one bottle of grappa per shift of 6 hours. Since the carousel of three boats had to keep going continuously, no ill effects. It helped to keep us warm.

    I have a lot of things in my liquor cabinet but grappa isn’t one of them. :eek:
