    My apologies All - the computer is to blame (isn't it always?) everything is just going so slowly this morning.

    My Dad {when he was 76 y.o.} called his computer "the bug*er machine" - whenever he used it he always said, "Oh, bug*er". I miss his eloquence.ROFL

    If we blow from the bottom of our lungs, with hot, steamy air, we'll get more "spit." It is really good for grossing out violists, and is a good sign.

    Doesn't the chilling make it a lager rather than a draft? I wish I were still in Germany, so I could send you some of the original Budweiser from the Czech Republic.

    In any case, drinking beer because of thirst was a no-no with my ultimate frisbee freinds--we would chug water before enjoying the taste of a fine brew. My old cellar in Germany kept everything around 10 degrees Centigrade--perfect!

    A rehearsal or concert was a different matter. We would use a single malt to test our lips (they would burn after a tough rehearsal) or use beer to quench our thirst, and the favourite was a "Black and Tan" in America. Guiness with Samuel Smith's. Yum!

    In Germany, whatever the draught beer worked just fine.

    I'll save my report of an arrest for drunken walking in Germany for another post.

    Have fun, but not too much!

    Hmmm, not sure that I want to gross out violinists - they are much too pretty - now "violarists"- well now that's a different matter. :woop:

    On the beer tangent, Ted I heard that no Aussie drinks Fosters, but they export it to the stupid Americans. :)

    Violin, Violoncello. Bass Viol, no problem.

    Violas, usually played by women who don't shave their arms and wear tank-tops are targets for this Vulgano. I can make them jump, and I do.:cool:

    Please note All ... I didn't actually write that - nor would I have ever said it out aloud.

    Misty my girl, please leave me to put my own two feet in my own mouth, and to change them at will - such a sentiment is not conducive to good Oz to US relations, and I dearly love the good humour and great conversations I have with you all on TM. {Misty, Misty, Misty, - shakes head and tutts with reversed tonguing - no mouthpiece.}

    However .................. we Aussies do export a LOT of Fosters. We don't drink much of it because it is (in the Irish venacular) liquid "shite". :shhh::shhh:ROFL

    "American beer is like making love in a canoe, #@$%ing too close to water"
