      Evening Gents. Hope everyone is well ...

      Sat out and watched the lighting for a bit. That's always been relaxing.

      Poured a neat glass of Black Draft Bourbon... local distillery

      A night to read extracts from the Anti Federalist Papers...

        Good evening folks, just a quick drive by to say hello.

        I am going to turn 58 years old in a few days and seeing age 60 on the horizon...and wondering “What’s next?”

        Well, maybe something good. I have a meeting next week with a group that wants to buy one of my companies. The starting negotiating price is in the mid 8 figures range.

        Maybe, just maybe, by the time I see 60...the future will be a secured deal.

        Wish me luck!

        And I hope everyone else is doing well and enjoying life!

        Cheers!

                Good stuff. I think we might have a bottle or two left.

                  Hi folks!

                  As some may know, I bought a bunch of cases of Coors Extra Gold (my favorite beer) at the beginning of Summer when it became unavailable locally. I was glad that I did, I was able to enjoy it while sharing with neighbor friends and giving cases away to them to enjoy.

                  I ran through almost all of the last of my inventory on Labor Day weekend after a big neighborhood party and giving more away. Since then I have been sampling different brands looking for a new choice until the CEG becomes available again locally. I have enough CEG left to do fair comparisons, but it’s nearly all gone.

                  Today I discovered a beer that I would have never even thought to try as an alternative if not for the recommendation of a friend. Pabst Blue Ribbon.

                  It’s not a beer that I ever gave a second thought to, much less even considered trying.

                  However, I bought a case and did a direct comparison to the CEG.

                  The carbonation is about equal. The nose of the PBR is just slightly more sweet and less acid aromatic than the CEG. More fruit and less bitter...but only very slightly.

                  The taste and mouth feel starts about the same, but the finish of the PBR is more fresh and less bitter than the CEG.

                  In general, they are very, very close...but the PBR is brighter and less bitter than the CEG.

                  I think I found a good alternative choice for the CEG. And it’s readily available locally.

                  And I don’t give a rat’s ass about other people saying they can get CEG where they are, it is just beer. If I can’t get it locally and easily, then it’s not on my menu. I stocked up because I could and it was convenient. I’m glad I did, and I enjoyed having it on demand all Summer when I wanted it. My neighbors were happy about it too.

                    PBR has made a comeback .... just go to a college bar and you'll see it flowing like 1978.

                        Well gang... Saturday is in the books.

                        Completed a lot of yard work and unexpectedly rolled out to meet up at Don's (@65 Dartman ) to accept his offer of a free 7 1/2 rear and also had an opportunity to meet in person @Old man ray . Great people

                        Relaxing now with some ice cold DB Vienna Lager while looking out over the tamed landscape.

                        Overall an outstanding day....

                        As Andy Dufresne would say "I think a man working outdoors feels more like a man if he can have a bottle of suds. That’s only my opinion."

                          I got one yard mowed today. I knew I didn't have time to haul the equipment back and forth and get the second one done. I ran some errands. One very important one. I stopped out to a favorite liquor store (@Sublime one knows which one) and picked up a bottle of Bookers for @68original. A guy has to have his priorities straight you know. :lol:

                              The bad thing about stopping at that store is finding something you must buy...................................................................................................

                                  A once a year release. A blend with lots of different flavors. (or so everyone raves about.)

                                      They had a partnership with Bluecoat distilling in Philly so I could online order when I was living in PA. Can't find it otherwise.

                                          Thanks Toolman. I think Kentucky has boycotted South Dakota from anything more than one bottle of anything good.
