Pints Pub has reopened; yay! I was there yesterday and noticed that they have not one but four Bruichladdiches on the menu. I was attending a meeting that had a test as part of it, and was driving besides so I wasn't able to partake. Here's the website for the place: http://www.pintspub.com/

I must remember this place next time I get to Denver. I don't know when that might be.  :( After a visit there, you and OCD might have to carry me out.  ;D

It wouldn't be the first time we have done that! Looking forward to tipping a glass with you at Pints Pub some day. I was reading their web site and they make a tall claim: the most single malt Scotches this side of Edinburgh!
May 2019 be better for us all.

As Jack Benny used to say, "Now, cut that out!"  :laugh:  You and OCD have never carried me out of anywhere!  :laugh:

I remember him saying that! I knew I should have reworded that statement. It wouldn't be the first time OCD and I have carried someone out of a bar. And the last time, I believe it was the Mint Bar in Sheridan, Wyo!

Well, that wasn't me. On Roundup I walked back to the motel under my own power.  ;D

Maybe it was that fella who downed all the liquid marijuanas.  ;D

I keep thinking about this article from last October 22:

 Michael Specter on the benefits of bacteria

and wondering, are we individuals who harbor colonies of bacteria, or are we bacteria universes, with human beings just the packaging or infrastructure?

Today I finished the March 4 article about Steven Zeitels, the phonosurgeon who has treated Julie Andrews, Adele, Steven Tyler, and Roger Daltry.

Depends on whom you ask: us or the bacteria.

I just started the article on the horrible attack on the artistic director of the Bolshoi.  :(

I didn't know he was once a principal dancer there, but it makes sense.
