"You have a great gift for rhyme."
In the Welsh folkloric tradition of Mari Lwyd, a horse skull visits your home near Christmas, and you must best it in a challenge of rhymes.

I'm really glad Paul Harrington is still kicking around. I used to read his site on hotwired.com religiously as a young teen, and it catapulted me forward in my love of classic cocktails and modern, fresh takes on the same. The love of the craft, combined with the interesting historical anecdotes, the wit, and the overall class really ensured I could never go down the path of drinking swill with the unwashed masses.

When the site died, I bought a copy of the book he printed from (a small number of) the pages from the original site itself. It came signed, with ostentatious silver marker inside the front cover. It's beat up and worn now, as a testament to how well it's been used.

Fast forward, and my eldest son started reading it at 10, and has been inspired to create innovative mocktails of some skill and creativity. Hopefully this will bode as well for his development as it did for mine.

Paul Harrington named this drink after Matt Jasmin, a friend with whom he went to architectural school. He was working at Townhouse when Jasmin said, “Ma

Now that I think of it, I had this drink at a bar in the Aria casino in Vegas 3 years ago. It was magical. But I forgot about it for a while... Now I need to make it. :)

Got the brakes changed out. Upgraded from old Tektros to Shimano Deore XTs. Got aerobars installed. And the handlebar extender since there was no place for the lights with the aerobars.

Removed the frozen front derailleur (new one hasn't shipped yet. Grrr). That'll be last year's Ultegra (before they changed the shift ratio).

Didn't get to the new rear derailleur yet. That'll also be Deore XT, to accommodate the old 9 speed cassette, with 32 tooth low gear. I'm PRETTY sure the shift ratio on this one still works....

This is awesome, as is the next video in the series where she plays two trumpets at a time, and then three. Then a trumpet and banjo at the same time.

Winter Sunset

Made up this lovely Christmas-themed cocktail for +Kathleen Flippen​, which would honestly be good much of the year. Looks like a winter sunset, tastes like the freshness of chill air, with a touch of spice. A little sweeter than my norm, but balanced and refreshing.

3/4 oz. Amaretto
3/4 oz. Chambord
3/4 oz. Cherry Cider (Trader Joe's)
2 1/4 oz. Vodka
1 Lime (juiced)
1/2 oz. Ginger Syrup (or to taste)
5 Allspice berries

Shake hard with lots of ice until your shaker frosts up. Crack open the shaker to pour so you get a float of tiny ice chips in your drink.

Aha. After futzing around with my camera app, I figured it out. Somehow it got into panorama mode without me knowing it. So when I took the picture, and thought I was done, and the camera moved a bit, it tried to stitch two of almost the same picture together. Badly.

“One of the aims of the Noto project is to digitally preserve little-spoken or dead languages to help enable global communication «across borders, languages, cultures and time periods.» […]

«There are some characters you can only see on stones» says Xiangye Xiao, product manager at Google. «If you don’t move them to the web, over time those stones will become sand and we’ll never be able to recover those drawings or that writing.»”
Google and Monotype have launched Noto, an open-source typeface family that encompasses every written language in the world, living and dead. It is one of the largest typographic projects ever undertaken and the result of five years collaborative work.

Office beer refresh complete. Minus the box of goodies for the downstairs bar. Paulaner Märtzen on tap, and a good mix of Belgian trippel, porter, pumpkin ale, IPA, stout, cider, Flemish sour, etc. for variety. Yes there's also Corona, Michelob and O'Dool's because we respect people with parataste as well (ok, the Corona was for cinqo de mayo and only half got drunk. The Mick Ultra and O'Dools have been there for... A couple years?).
