It's a mystery- Something is wrong. As Lance Underphal pads softly across the cold flagstone, he hears her weeping. She is on her knees, hunched over in the middle of the room, her back to him, facing the dark fireplace. Something is very wrong. Lance wants to rush to her, but can't. In a hoarse whisper, he says, "Callie?" She lets out a mournful wail from deep within as she turns, their infant son in her arms, blue and still. He reels from the blow. How can this be? They don't have a son.

Crap! I'm always the last one to the party. Since it's Monday morning I'm having a lovely coffee with a dab of sweet cream. Had I made it on time to this little shindig, I would have has a spiced rum and coke in hand. 🥃

I get mine from Big John's Beef Jerky. I order six lbs. at a time, and currently have nearly 15 lbs. stacked in my office (vacuumed sealed in 1-lb. packs). Every time they email me about a special offer, I pick up another six lbs.

Seriously Jim, if you're looking for a good source, check 'em out. They have lots of flavors, ship fast, and never make mistakes (in my experience).

I can't speak for anyone else, but it's a slice of heaven for me. They pair nicely, with each one bringing out the flavors of the other. In that way, pairing bourbon whiskey and beef jerky is like pairing ribeye and Cabernet Sauvignon. :)

Thanks for the recommendation! I'll give them a try. :D

Beef jerky's not really a snack, though.  It's more like a food group.    :D

It's not for everybody. But if you enjoy bourbon, and love beef jerky, I definitely recommend trying them together.

Haha. I'm inclined to agree. My diet is 100% meat, and I still look forward to chewing on jerky most days.

It's almost pemmican, which is a way of life.

Four days and no one has said this so it's time to remedy that . . .




Tea, Earl Gray, hot.

They're jealous because they were stuck with food synthesizers rather than replicators.

Sorry, Dan.  You're a couple of days late with this one.  AllyD said it first.

With cream?  Because that would be so wrong.  So, so wrong.

Ah, the distant future, where computers can materialise cups of tear at will in nearly infinite numbers, but still unable to remember that it should be served hot by default.

How about that episode where they used Geordi's visor to transmit video to the bridge and they were like, wow, now we can see what the away team sees live as it happens, as if the concept of portable video cameras was a foreign idea to them?

Well, I'm craving spicy dried beef in a big way. But WHO SAID SWEET TEA WAS WRONG?!?! Sweet, iced tea is the ambrosia of the gods.

In a bar situation I'm stuck with an amaretto sour or any fruity chick drink, candy in a glass, because I despise the taste of alcohol. And on the hottest days of the summer I crave red punch, the kind they make for school and scout functions. (Pineapple juice, strawberry Kool-aid, and 7-up.)

Why I don't have the diabeetus yet I'll never know.

cups of tear

I suspect that was a typo but made me think of "cup of tears" and that's appropriate in a thread about alcohol or poison. A lot of people are stewed by 9:00 pm every evening wondering why they aren't happier, or something. I would know. Fortunately, I changed course about twenty years ago.

I've been on Fiji for nearly 8 weeks now on a housesit and have put on at least 10 pounds I'm sure!  Major culprit?

Dark Rum
Pineapple Juice
Coke
Coconut water - taken from an actual coconut ofcourse :)

It's some seriously tasty trouble!
