juliev, you should appreciate this. I don't know who the author is, but I thought it was funny.

The Mouse on the Barroom Floor

Some Guinness was spilled on the barroom floor
when the pub was shut for the night.
Out of his hole crept a wee brown mouse
and stood in the pale moonlight.
He lapped up the frothy brew from the floor,
then back on his haunches he sat.
And all night long you could hear him roar,
'Bring on the d**m cat!'

Who needs cheese and wine? I agree bring on the beer. What goes better than a nice pale ale and a wedge of Sonoma habanero jack!!

I think it was on the foodnetwork that I saw this shop that sold only cheese. The cheese was stored in the perfect conditions for each particular cheese. Oh, they looked so good!! It I could have stuffed myself through the TV I would have. Someday, you will make it to England, juliev. I want to go to Ireland since my family is from there, several generations ago.

Yeah.. I don't think I saw it on there though... I do remember seeing a show on this cheese shop through some cooking show on PBS.. That is one place that would not want to hire me... they would always come up with missing merchandise :twisted:

We definitely should not work there together. They would have to file for bankruptcy to make up for all the cheese that somehow mysteriously disappeared. Wouldn't be fun though to work there for one day?

yous guys have to try irish cheddar if you get the chance. it's really creamy, and if you get a good one (i've found smaller producers make a much better cheese) it'l be nice and sharp.
if you like cheddar, try putting slices on wheat crakers, the more rustic the better, then top with a sliver of raw onion and spicy brown or coleman's hot mustard. unbelievably good with a cold harp, guinness, or smithwick's.
i have such a craving for cheese right now. been on a goat cheese kick lately. never knew how many kinds there were, all will different nuances.
sierrac, lol, i printed out the "mouse on the barroom floor" and put it up on my desk. getting a lot of chuckles. gonna bring a copy to my local (irish pub) this afternoon.

i had more baked lays tater chips and a diet coke.
