We offered our waiter a taste (warning him that we may have made a mistake with our purchase) "Never say no to whiskey". But he agreed with us that it wasn't the best.

    I will take the lazy way to the remote bar and will visit by boat.
    Duty free is not a bad way to go.

    On my trip to Ireland, we landed and a cabbie was taking us to our hotel in Dublin. It was an incredible sunny, mid-70’s day which is rare. The cabbie said “Y’know, we aughta bottle sunny days like this and sell ‘em. Oh wait, I think we do.” That still cracks me up.

    And not to merge tangents on threads, but Bruce was playing at Croke Park in Dublin the night we arrived. Was hoping to run into him or the band at Temple Bar or some such after the show but did not. I did search lots of bars just in case though . . . .

    That even a slow connection(yes, there are 3g installs in habited but remote places) won't prevent posting of beer reviews?
    No, I just missed the connection. All good here.

    I had a much longer reply that I deleted, but in a nutshell, the concern over post counts is distracting to a dozen people and I regret I may have contributed to that in the past.

    Continuing the driving discussion from earlier, my recommendation: as I was taught in driver's ed, pass and pass decisvely in the normal course of your driving and don't look back. There won't be any bruised egos or if there are I would suggest that those egos might need to re-evaluate life. There isn't anyone on this board that's going to be chasing someone down like the big rig in Duel (yes, more driving refernces and the Dennis Weaver character is interesting in that film.). And then we can rename this thread(with help from the mods) as was suggested a couple dozen pages ago. It will all be fine!

    Never saw Duel, but looking it up it has Dennis Weaver and is directed by Spielberg. Worth watching?

    I need to figure out how to watch The Great British Baking Show when I don't have Netflix.

    2020 should be turned into code for all the wankery things we can't say around here.

    Man, I really 2020ed that!

    What the 2020!?!

    I wholly endorse this idea.

    If hindsight is 2020, it is pretty wankery.

    Not the best ever but worth a watch! You start to see a few of the techniques that Spielberg used later on.

    I think we've all figured out that we can't compete with beer, especially during a pandemic.

    Community was a quarantine rewatch for us. Very layered jokes. Great cast.

    It's a quarantine new watch for me. Was this a network show? If so, I completely missed it.
