    I am just getting ready for tomorrow's Eye-talian FC post.

    I was going to wear my Eye - talian today but have a board meeting with some rural firefighters at 7pm and another meeting with a Chief tomorrow morning so I don't know if I'll be submitting an entry. I get flak for wearing a tie around these guys. A full on Eye-Talian get up wouldn't go over well. We'll see though. I had a great idea for my picture setup too.

    Bummer. This FC is a good one.
    But it appears everyone who's put their entry into FC is looking freaking awesome.

    Oh and, thumbs up to all the firefighters out there.

    I'm a Scotch wuss. I drink Balvenie 14 which is made in barrels previously used for rum so you get a little sweetness of the rum to offset the punch in the face that Scotch gives you.

    Unfortunately, I must be on my best behavior in the beginning. But life without alcohol is just fine. I'll just buy more ties.

    The Scotch appreciation thread is great if you want to branch out. Bunch of guys who know and love to drink the stuff. There are certainly milder scotches that can help you ease into things. IIRC, lowlands - Glenkinchie, Auchentoshan - are usually good about being less abrasive than others but still bringing in some of the more scotch-like aspects to things.


    Here is the hit list. It is the best resource I've ever found for getting new whisky ideas.

    That's right... I forgot there is a whole lifestyle part of this website. I never wander over that way. Scotch thread sounds worth reading since I do like the occasional small glass of it, mostly in the colder weather months. Thanks very much for the suggestion.
