If my smell & taste ever return, I'm going to sample a new single malt -- Highland Park 12 year (the only bottling I could afford!) - distilled in the Orkney Islands in the most northerly distillery in Scotland:

Quote:
Highland Park is one of the few distilleries to malt its own barley, using locally cut peat from Hobbister Moor. The peat is then mixed with heather before being used as fuel. The malt is peated to a level of 20 parts per million phenol and then mixed with unpeated malt produced on the Scottish mainland.
My palate thrives on peated single malts (Islay varieties to date) with very high phenolic contents. Maybe this will be strong enough to register on my feverish taste buds! Sláinte!

Congrats, Durrant. Get well soon, KK, pooh and Prof Crash (am I missing someone else?).

@ Prof Crash: it's the rule, that one is. I found that out after many time asking myself what the middle part's supposed to mean

A trip to pagodas today. Took some shots

Nice photography, Anh! I miss shooting in S.E. Asia. I can't wait to get back.
Good of you to finally wake up, Orlok... I thought you were going to sleep the clock around! Now... go be productive! It's Saturday, so you have the entire day to do something special.

Special for me right now is... Keemun tea as an after dinner treat. My wife cooked tonight and made her special 'Goyza.' Best I've ever eaten! Ans Keemun tea is the perfect accompaniment!

I was up at 6am this morning, I'll have you know. On a Saturday too! Then I went back to sleep until 9:30 . If "special" encompasses doing the washing, feeding the kids and going to the supermarket, then I've got it nailed.

Black coffee in my mug. Just for a change.

@ orlok: only part of one of the complex. I'll throw in another one.

Beautiful photos, maianhvk!

I'm having my second mug of plain, bagged, black tea.

My wife is making a "smoothie," with frozen blueberries, blackberries, peaches (or, possibly mangos today), and some vanilla yogurt. Amazingly, I like all of the individual components ... but I really don't like the end result.

Wake up momma, turn your lamp down low;
Wake up momma, turn your lamp down low.
You got some nerve baby, to turn Uncle Stitch from your door.

I woke up this morning, I had them Statesboro Blues,
I woke up this morning, had them Statesboro Blues.
Well, I looked over in the corner, and Grandpa seemed to have them too.

Well my momma left me reckless,
My poppa died and left me running wild,
Well my momma left me reckless,
My poppa died and left me running wild,
I know I ain't good looking,
But I'm somebody's sweet angle child.

I once loved a woman, prettier than I've ever seen;
Well, I once loved a woman, better than any woman I've ever seen.
Well, now, she treated me like a king,
And I treated her like a dog gone queen.

When David Bromberg plays Blind Willie McTell, it's just magic...

Good morning, everyone. First Sunday in March and it's gonna be a great day! I have Ahmad's "English Breakfast" tea in my cup, still-warm Pumpernickel bread and home-made butter, Jamón serrano ham and some goat cheese on the table waiting for me. Yessssss.... It's gonna be a great day!

When is the move? And please tell me it is not to the South of Thailand. The BBC had a story on that region recently and it sounds moderately dangerous.

Finished my Puerh. Giving Lucas a few minutes to settle down and hitting the hot tub. Probably with water.

@ orlok: why yes, I did. It's the places that are beautiful, and besides, the camera did all the work. I just released the button

Back to work. Red bull helps.
