  1. Got the call this morning from [email protected], needing to verify my shipping address.... The worlds
    largest Titanium bottle opener is ready to ship! Now, the building process can begin! I'm only
    missing a few minor bits and pieces (like a drivetrain and a stem ;-) to make it a complete bike.

    Sitting here with a Molson Ice and a side of single malt wondering..... What the He11 is Beer cross?
    I'm also thinking it sounds like something I should look into ;)

    Had a full day of shoveling, Jeeping, playing "Let's run dad over with the sled" with the kids.

    Great day. It would have been even BETTER if I could ride in the snow.

    Good, then Habanero's phones are working. I'm waiting for the same phone call, different reason. Mr.
    Hickey and I have speced up a new Ti road bike for my lovely wife, Xmas present and all. Now, I
    don't have a road bike you understand, so perhaps I'll have to get disk's for the old mountain bike
    come spring :) and then maybe a road bike.

    Not bad, not a bad idea at all...

    They suck as wheels, maybe they'll serve a better purpose as a rather large cigar cutter.

    I'm wondering if it's proper to open a bottle of Fat Tire Ale with a 'cross bike though... if not, I
    suspect John will be ordering another "opener" soon. ;-)

    I just hope John doesn't take up drinking wine - I might have liability issues if I build him
    another frame with a corkscrew hangin' off it (unless of course he prefers the type with bottle caps
    or twist-offs). ;-)

    The head of The Times Wine Society is advocating the use of screw tops - apparenly it prevents
    'corking' and makes for a better bottle of wine. Soon we'll all be drinking from screw-tops. Apart
    from France...

    The composite corks work just fine. Screw tops just seem _cheap_ somehow.......

    Seem cheap, yes, I agree. But attitudes are changing, and quickly too. Several top restaurants in
    London are now stocking posh screw tops, although it's not clear whether you have to drink straight
    from the bottle or not ;^)

    I just don't see what the problem is with the new style corks - trying to weigh up if it's an easier
    process to wrap press the caps or push fit the corks........

    Too busy using them for the fizzy alcofrol, like what they are supposed to be for - duh!

    I _have_ to drink it out the bottle because I have no 'class'.
