Why would you want an unleaded Guinness stout for breakfast when you can have a cold brew nitro coffee?

Add a shot of Japanese whisky 51.4% my daughter gave me for my birthday. It's too strong ...

It's one of my faves!

That and Laphroaig, which I readily admit is the Marmite of whiskies.

And ... feeling like crap today: throat/headache/dry cough, but not Covid (checked), might treat myself to a medicinal dram.

(so forum engagement is minimal, I'll bring a note on my return)

Hope you mend fast

If it's the same I had, you can expect to feel tired and listless for two or three weeks after the main symptoms have gone :(

Do any of y'all remember this episode of The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson?

The guests were Jack Benny and Mel Blanc. Poor Johnny Carson had a hard time keeping it together when Mel Blanc got into his schtick!

You know you are getting ready for the OF corral when you say:

"That music is just a bunch of noise"

Um -

But I still have five years to go?

And I like many kinds of noisy discordant complex music! I guess kids these days prefer boring noise or something 🤔

I just made my first attempt at homemade soft pretzels from scratch. Half of them have already disappeared, so I thought I'd better take a picture before they all disappear. (Yeah @Cino I know, they aren't True Pretzels, boiled in lye. I had to use baking soda instead.)

Now, I have this strange urge to throw a Guinness Stout at @wil

Happy New Year!
