It's that jump from "how do I feel" to "what do I want" that's still difficult. When I can make the jump, I can take responsibility. When I can't, it's easy to be in blame (with it's cousin: sarcasm), shame/withdrawal, or stuck in processing. 

Hey, nobody said changing your patterns is easy. Some of these patterns are older than you are. ;-)

A particularly clever (and fully requirement-compliant) design from Tom. 
I was sad it didn't win the people's choice, but it is a whole new nametag design.

I've got a group (church band), so if I can play a line on one or two strings, I can go live. ;-)  
Good to have "cover" from band mates.

This is just a little preview of what we're looking forward to seeing. It may be a bit more wintry or rainy when we visit, but we can hope for some  spectacular scenery even if we end up seeing it through fog and rain. If we ...

Darned if you are not right yet again. I picked up a bottle because I remembered your review. I remembered you describing it as a complex dram and a great value. My first sniff said peat in a big way. I'm not a fan of peat. I reviewed your review and you called it right.

And you were right that it is challenging. Every few months I go back to it and try another taste and it is growing on me. It is more complex and interesting than I expected.

I or the sherry monsters more and sick to Speyside usually, bit there is just something interesting about this. Everything you said about it is dead on.

Good on you, Ralfy.

"If you keep doing what you've always been doing, you'll keep getting what you've already got."

Corollary: Giving new names to what you've always been doing means you are still doing what you've always been doing and will get what you already got.

A few of the photos are grainy or fuzzy, but it's about the memories not the photography. Enjoy, and thanks for being in my 2014 and inviting me into yours!

I have only recently found this place, though it's not far from my house. It was a bit of a surprise when I drove up and saw it is mostly (by square footage) a wine & fine spirits store (probably the best in the area), so I wasn't sure I was in the right place. Great bread, great spreads, great meats, fresh veg... what's not to like? I've not tried delivery yet. I see that they deliver everything.
