Happy Holidays to Everyone!

All of my Holiday visiting is now over, I went and did the family thing with my Mom on last Sat. On Sunday Amy and I went to Wytheville, VA to visit her Sister and her family at Bob Evan's for lunch (good place to meet up and have a bite to eat.)

 The food was great and the visit went very well. Later that afternoon my dad and step mom Deb had their family thing for the 1st time at a place we could all meet up without any cats, so that was nice and we had a pretty good time. (Amy is deathly allergic to cats) and Dad and Deb have 4 of them, so we don't go visit them at there house except in summer when we can stay outside.

 Here it is Christmas Eve of 2010 and I can't believe this year is almost over with. Damn the older you get the faster the years fly by. When I was a teen and early 20's it seemed like time just drug along, then in my 30's it started going faster and faster as each year passed. Now this coming Jan I'll turn the big 40.

 I really don't even give a shit, I was bothered when I turned 30, less hair, more gray, a bit Now as I've went through all the years of being 30 I've come to realize you're only as old as you think you are.

 It's like the story of the old bull and his young son standing on the hill overlooking a field of cows. The young bull tells his dad, Let's run down the hill and fuck us a cow, The old bull laughs and says NO Son! Let's Walk down the Hill and Fuck Them All!....lmao!

 I love that story, its not really a joke but instead one of life's lessons. A lesson a lot of people never learn.

 Take time to smell the roses and enjoy the simple and finer things in life. There is no bonus amount of time when you reach the end for a speedy rush through finish, you just die having missed most of what life is worth living for.

 Anyway everyone have a Happy Holiday and enjoy the time you spend this season while you Eat, Drink and make Merry!

Lazy Daze of the Big Belly Beer Burping Brad

So I've tried the Black and Blue and while I'm a huge fan of all thing Black and Blue Berry I only like the beer, not a total disappointment, but not the wonderful liquid orgasm I was hoping for., Oh Well that's life.

 On a happy note I tried the Raison D'Etre Belgian Style Brown Ale and it blew my socks off. Raisin and Beet Sugars in a beer, What the Fuck kind of shit is that you ask, Damn Good is my Answer.

 You really don't even taste Raisin's or Beets you just get all these wonderful flavors that just keep coming sip after sip. I think I found a new favorite Craft Beer, at least for now. I see now why it won Beer of the Year Award a few years ago, its goodness in a bottle.

1st Snowfall of 2010

Well they finally got a forecast right for a change. Snow was on the list for
today and it even arrived about 12 hours early.

Glad I'm just staying home today, I alway enjoy this weather better looking at it through the window as opposed to being out in it.

 I picked up a couple bottles of Dogfish Head Black and Blue so I think I'll get into one of those here in a bit and check out some of that wonderful Black and Blue Berry Beer.

Heres the link to the Dogfish Head Website if you're into Craft Beer.

Cold and Nasty Day in the Carolinas

Today totally sucked ass if you wanted to do anything outside the house. Wind blowing 20 to 30 mph, raining sideways and not a speck of blue in the sky. I've resided to just forget trying to take a ride for the next few days and instead drink some cold beer, play some fetch with Smokey and goof off online, could be worse I could be at work....haha.

Here's my entertainment for the next few days. My crazy little Pekingese Smokey and his favorite toy the Sphere of Joy, as we call it, because it brings him so much
