    There's just something indescribable about those old VWs. I'd love to restore a Bug, but people just want too much for them.

    Same way I feel about my old boss.

    Work seems to be the bane of human existence right now. When we're kids we think about what we want to be "when we grow up". Then we get there and no matter what we end up doing we rarely love our jobs, because we always have someone looking over our shoulder and second-guessing everything. Then, there's the real world aspects of pay and benefits that rarely line up. I tell you, the people that love their jobs AND are paid well and have good benefits? If they exist they sure are lucky.

    BEER! What's in your fridge?

    Glad you got to try it. I wish I had a keg of that stuff. Just a perfect porter.

    I've been wearing my belt all day every day and working out my back slowly. It seems to be helping. Right now I'm laying in the sun.

    Lol. Last night this lady I know and I were talking online about mixing drinks.(married lady older than me, don't get any funny ideas). She suggested I make a B-52(Grand marnier, kahlua, and irish cream). Said I could just pour them over a spoon to get the layers more easily, or just mix them together if I couldn't do that. Of course, I bragged to her about my "freehand skills I learned from the exchange student Bjorn" in High school, so I poured my first layered drink in about 20 years. Speaking of unsteady hands...(picture to follow.)

    Hey, I had to look it up myself. I bought a cocktail book and it said "kirsch". I was all like "whuuuuuut?" Then I googled it. It's even 90 proof.

    One shot gran marnier, one shot Kirschwasser, 1/2 shot creme de menth, and pineapple juice. Delicious.

    Modified Acapulco. Extra shot of tequila, bourbon instead of rum, and extra shot of pineapple juice. Suited more to my tastes.

    So....Sapele

    Just snobbery. It's prone to tearout when routing, but IMO it is a very tonally "dark" wood. It makes a great guitar with a very deep sound. Use slightly bright pickups to add some treble... the Gibson 500T or something similar. I have hundreds of pounds of it. Mahogany is becoming increasingly scarce, and sapele is a much better alternative than most.

    Excellent. I highly recommend. Warm, spicy, and smooth as butter .

    They are so common around here I barely even notice them unless they are unstrapped and hanging loose. Maybe I'll put a Gibson patch on mine. Or Jackson USA.

    I bought some back support belts. Not sure how great they are, but it seems to help some.

    It would be good, I imagine. All the sugar would make for a terrible hangover though. I noticed it's also available in 10% .

    It's quite enjoyable. If you like root beer then you'll like it, because it actually tastes exactly the same. I could see myself as a kid drinking a six pack and getting drunk and not knowing why.
