Like a lot of folks, I like a cold beer from time to time. Following our upcoming (can’t be soon enough) move to the Great Land, the distance to a source for those cold beers will be expanded by an order of magnitude. In our current Colorado house, there is a liquor store with a reasonable selection a five-minute walk away; following the move, the nearest store will be about a fifteen-minute drive. So, planning would seem to be the order of the day, as it is with all things around a rural life. We figure we’ll have to go down to Wasilla for our regular trading every other week or so, depending on how well-stocked with fish and game our freezer is at the time.
But the other option, of course, may be brewing my own. That might be a fun little hobby, along with benefit of ensuring my supply regardless of what challenges winter weather may bring. So, if any True Believers have any advice on this front, I’d welcome such in the comments.
I also like a nip of good whiskey now and then, but that’s probably a whole ‘nother prospect, when it comes to making my own.
On To the Links!
Abstain? From BOOZE? In RUSSIA? Good luck with that!

This Week’s Idiots:
I have a small mental list of the top five best guitar players that ever lived. While that list includes Jerry Garcia, Frank Zappa, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimi Hendrix, the only member of my list still breathing is the great Carlos Santana.
Carlos is still around and still producing great music. Here he is with someone named Rob Thomas on vocals, with his 1999 hit Smooth. Enjoy.
