I'm surprised some of that beer is still drinkable.

My sons have often commented that beer can go "skanky" if too old. Especially if it had been frozen - not to mention losing its fizz.

Some of it is. I am a collector more than a drinker. Some of the darker ales and stouts will stay good for a long time.

The hoppy brews are only good for 6 months or so. I just keep the ones I really liked.

Kind of like baseball cards. :grin:

I have a few Vintage Ales from 2001. They just keep getting better with time. The ones I took pictures from also will stand up to a long wait. They don't go bad, they just get different. Many times they get smoother and more mellow.

The Fuller's Vintage Ales actually get stronger and less smooth, like a bad whiskey, but better, which is very interesting to say the least.

Enjoying a cup of coffee in peace.
I've been so busy lately trying to get things done. The stress of it all is catching up with me.
When my sister says I sound stressed on the phone. Son says I'm cranky.
I think it's time for me to take today off as CG, says "Leisure Day"
Why ruin the first good nights sleep that I've had in weeks by working today?


Munky.

I am... frivolously staring at a computer screen as my husband snores the lyrics to Mary Had a Little Lamb!

How... tireless! I'm currently washing the dishes at the untimely hour of 1:45!

I am laying on the bed with the dogs and the A/C going. It was 118 degrees where we were working today. I'm beat.

It's been four months since I took up cooking in a serious capacity. I've saved plenty of money, and am now quite good at quinoa-based recipes. They're remarkably easy to prepare. I'm happy that I can out for grocery runs now, though reading about the higher possibility of transmission indoors makes me worry for my elderly neighbors who do all their shopping themselves.

Taking up cooking has also helped me read better in that I don't worry about cutting down on takeout anymore. I used to think about cutting down all the time, and my lack of effort to that end only worsened this. If it matters, I'm reading a couple of books right now.

1. Lars Svendsen's A Philosophy of Boredom -- extremely interesting and draws from literature, philosophy, and sociology. Yet it urges the reader to judge these insights by drawing from our own experience of boredom. Which is a very noble way of saying that we need to think about what we mean we say "we're bored." Much like Bertrand Russell, Svendsen also urges to examine idleness and boredom closely, for it does constitute a great deal of our lives.

2. Gregory Mankiw's Principles of Macroeconomics -- Among other things, it focuses on the interplay between personal, micro-level choices and macro-level ramifications. It also deals with rationality and decision-making and asks us to wonder what makes certain decisions economic considerations, and what makes these considerations rational or irrational? Interesting so far.
