    Man, Mike, I hope you are not on call to go into the ER though all of this!

    'Whole E. Cow' - we've got a true professional here! My first shine experience was with Tim Smith's just recently - bought some for a friend who is a big fan and figured I had to get a bottle.. Not much bootlegging going on around here in NYC! Maybe up in the Adirondacks though....:-)

    I lived in solitary confinement for eight years before getting married. I'm pretty used to being by myself and having the run of the house. The weasels stay in their cage. I might go in the garage and heave some iron around. Other than that, business as usual.
    It's been snowing here for a couple of hours. Now that you mention it, maybe i should grab my primary horn out of the boot before i can't get it open...

    This was my backyard about three hours ago. Nice and heavy now, sounds like sleet's mixing in.

    I don't do anything special. Having practiced for emergencies (the next concerts or my students lessons.....) all my life, I just deal with it. North European Hot Chocolate is a good treat though, melt a whole candy bar and only add a little bit of milk to keep it fluid.

    In Lagos?

    All those "...not until Hell freezes over" promises would fall due. Guess I'd have to start watching reality TV shows, collect John Denver albums and discover religion.

    I got a bottle of that for Christmas! I was surprised by how smooth and tasty it was - definitely something to keep on hand. It won't be a go-to, but it has a place in my cabinet.

    Right now my cabinet consists of:

    (Bourbon)
    Bulleit
    Elijah Craig 12 year Small Batch
    Maker's Mark
    Russell's Reserve 10 Year

    (Other)
    Bulleit Rye
    Tim Smith's Climax Moonshine
    Pyrat XO Rum

    Nice pic. I'm a couple hours north of you, between DC and Baltimore. Started snowing about 2 hours ago.
