I enjoy both immensely but would not mix both in some horrid cocktail.

Bailey's and coffee, on the other hand...

I take back what I said. I visited Adelaide two weeks ago and had dinner with friends at La Bonne Table, not too far from Victoria Square.

Our server offered me glass of lager with espresso and I was most game to try it. I wish I took note of the specific beer they used but it had the appearance of dark ale and it tasted very good.

An old one but still chuckle-worthy.

In the end, it's all subjective really. Still, I feel like I'm missing out on something.

Neil Peart on Belief.

“Sure, I still wonder. As infuriating and senseless as organized religion seems, and with all the abuses of the evangelists and fanatics, I am still intrigued by the romance, the ritual, and the security of a Higher Power. Like most everyone, I’d like to believe in something larger than life, especially for those times when life seems small and mean. But after I’ve admired the poetry of the King James Bible, appreciated the peaceful wisdom of Buddhism, recoiled from a vengeful Allah or God, wondered about the secret societies of Freemasons and Illuminati, in the end I return to reality, and believe in Life. And that seems good to me.

I can worship Nature, and that fulfills my need for miracles and beauty. Art gives a spiritual depth to existence – I can find worlds bigger and deeper than my own in music, paintings, and books. And from my friends and family I receive the highest benediction, emotional contact and personal affirmation. I can bow before the works of Man, from buildings to babies, and that fulfills my need for wonder. I can believe in the sanctity of Life, and that becomes the Revealed Word, to live my life as I believe it should be, not as I’m told to by self-appointed guides.” (pp. 108-109)


“All dogma aside, it is nakedly humane and truly compassionate not to want people to suffer, whether or not someone says it is “God’s will.” That must be the simplest of truths, the kind that can only be contested by people who place dogma above life, and those are the people, whether communist, fascist, Muslim, or Catholic, who must represent the enemy to those of us who worship Life and the supreme good, and the supreme god. Or to those of us who just want to enjoy it.” (p. 113)

Introduction
Professionally, I choose to be platform agnostic as it does not help to restrict myself to a particular platform, mainly out of sheer stubbornness. It is far more advantageous to know and use the right tools, or whatever resources are available, to keep the machine going, so to speak.

That said, I'm personally more GNU/Linux-leaning and still learning. ;)

Good pub atmosphere and the grub was good. The staff are very friendly and, most important of all, excellent selection of beer and ale on tap! It's a bit pricey but well worth the visit.
