Breakfast of straight Whiskey and a Nicaraguan cigar. It is 7am here on planet earth.
To quote and paraphrase that band called Primus,
"Funny thing about the weekends when your unemployed, they don't mean quite so much, except that you can hang out with your working friends"
I do add water to whiskey, just in case anyone cares.
I like Juanito Caminante Red, but I'm usually too cheap to buy it. Black is good, too, but since I have to cut with ice, and wait for some of the ice to melt, I just drink Red. Although, I haven't had one in probably a couple of years.
You might want to try cognac. It's quite tasty. I know a guy who drinks it almost exclusively. When I visit him, I gotta bring my own wine, 'cause all he's got is cognac! lol
standing there in the background-
Do you really consume alcohol early in the morning? What do you then do with the rest of the day?
I've known that there are people who did that sort of thing even when I was a child, but I've never been able to imagine stumbling thru a day in an alcoholic haze.
Can you explain?

it depends on when your day is timed. I stay up all night for example, my night time was this morning.
Hey BH, back when I was the sound guy for a little rock band, "day" and "night" didn't mean much. We'd stop for burgers at 5 am, and sleep til 1 pm.
Those were the daze.
You don't have to answer, but are you retired? Just curious - since this is waiting for me.

Coffee with Nicaraguan Rum. Great for breakfast.
Especially that Crystal one. Goodwill won't carry them (prudishly).
I don't smoke-never did, but those ashtrays are a symbol of the past. Any good home owner would have one stashed away for a guest.
After being served a dram of good single malt, a patron asked for some water. Gus the proprietor, in typical Gus fashion, looked him in the eye and responded, "You put water in that and I'll throw you out of my pub!" Another Gus vignette occurred when he was asked which of the whiskys of Islay would be considered the smoothest. His response was classic: "They don't do smooth."
Each to his own I guess, but if I can't drink it straight up, I don't want it at all. Although I was recently gifted some whisky stones that are kept in the freezer, and placed in the glass right before pouring. It cools the dram a bit without watering it down. I have to admit that it's an improvement.
This is McGregor whiskey, cost me $23 for a huge plastic jug of it.
I recommend for breakfast, very very good. Just make sure you have a day off because you'll be napping right after. I was reborn when I woke up at 1:30PM, went to bed around 7:30AM after an hour of sipping.
No apologies for using the Chinese fast food broth container to fix myself a drink this morning either.
Thanks all for the kind words.
Maybe Google up some whiskey beans recipes to really finish it off, and add some needed protein ;-)
...do you have an appointment with your G.P. today?
I couldn't find my whiskey glass, that container is from some Chinese soup broth, I think I had lobster and shrimp soup. That was from the broth container.
WAF is no good here. Not even thought of.
awesome ; )
Q: If you had to sum them up in one sentence, what do you like the best about the Galos? I've heard great things about them, some even pit them up against Maggie 3.6s.
The bass is incredible, they the 3.5s can be found for four thousand federal reserve notes if you look. The tweeter or whatever it is really is incredible, the midrange and the bass driver especially powering the second voice coil of the woofer cannot be spoken. I can't describe the sound other than transcendental immersion into what time has brought upon us.
...put the ballistic rubber blocks under them? Just curious, since I have some designs on that material myself.
I had the story here bookmarked, someone not sure if it was you mentioned to do that.
I'm pretty short, so when I sit on my couch the ears aren't up that high above the field of sound, don't need it.
soundstaging is incredible, as best as I've heard in a real world situation. I have been blown away by true high end setups, but we are talking $40,000 speakers, and not certain I am missing much.
