got a warning that my Hard Drive was full, at SWMBO's suggestion I went out and got an internal CD
burner to back up a bunch of stuff, before clenaing it out. Somehow, I fried the motherboard and
hard-drive. went to return the CD Burner to B&stBuy and found an "Open Item" (display model)
1.3GigHz PC w/ 40Gig hard drive and CDR/W-DVD for $249. When one door closes another one opens.

Now I just need a real JOB!

Spent last week filling in for one of my mechanics at the shop. That was really cool..... I did a
few timing belts, an oil pump, a head gasket, and all sorts of groovy volvo repairs. They were so
impressed they even gave me my own key, so I can use the shop any time I want now.

Riding? Jut riding the trainer It hasn't gotten above 20°F for over two weeks now. Some days it
never got above 0°!!!!! BUT, on a positive note, Harpoon has released their Winter Ale.... MOST
YUMMY indeed!

If THAT'S the case, I'm going to stop putting kitty litter in my cat's box and just drain it into my
beer mug. Aussie beer is second only to English beer IMHO. Unfortunately, most American beer just
doesn't measure up (except to VB, Victoria Bitters, which is apparently the most popular beer in Oz
and a poor replacement for Budweiser - go figure).

Yer all (both) wrong - _Home Brew_ - that's where it's at I tells ya.

Had some gorgeous H/B wines a couple of weeks ago an '87 plum wine, and an '86 blackberry! Bloody
gorgeous! Can't wait to try the 1980 orange brandy - bet that's gorgeous!

I will have to disagree with you on that, Mark. Canadian beer rocks the world. Belgian beer
comes close...

I assumed our bus-driving friend was refering to lager. Maybe it's an export thing, but Aussie
lagers are just **** water, IME. Not that English lagers are much better, you understand.

If you had said mustard yellow liquid then it could have been any number of American beers, but I
can't help you there.

Good stuf, eh?

I just picked up two bottles of thier (very limited) "11" (they discontinued "10" last year) But
haven't had the [email protected] to pop the cork on one yet. if it is anything like 10 was, 750ml of an 11%
triple'll be a "serious" @ss kicker....
