The Pub / Re: Where are you?

Well, I had to remove my location from my profile and may soon have to abandon all of my forum accounts because of a new policy in our school district regarding internet representation/fraternization.  Yes, I know that it is not lawful but as a teacher, if I want to avoid a costly (for my professional reputation) legal battle, I will have to comply.  I would love to post my location again but let's just say that if you are ever around exit 107 on I-80 in Wyoming, look me up.  I may not post much but I learn a ton by lurking.

Most companies charge a huge fee for data transfer over a set amount. Verizon's limit is only 5 gigs. Plus, it is a lot slower than traditional wifi networks run off of a cable modem or dsl.

As to the question about viewing/posting from a BlackBerry, I just sent this post from my blackberry. I can only view a limited text-only site which is irritating when I want to see the pictures someone posts but that is easy to fix by just looking it up when I get home.

EDIT: sorry I answered my own question when I viewed the board on my computer.  The pictures don't show up on my blackberry.

I also had the Rasputin RIS from the same brewery and it was infected. Sad really because those beers are expensive.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Belize beers
« on: March 13, 2010, 03:14:31 AM »
Hi all,

I just got back from Belize and I got to try some great beers and some OK beers.  Since the Belize brewing company owns the monopoly on beers there you can't find much.  They have a law regarding beer country of origin...something like a fine if you are caught with a non-local/authorized import beer (at least that was what the shop owners told me).

Belikin Stout-Nice smooth stout.  From the reviews, I expected something worse.  It was fairly dry and pretty well balanced.
Belikin-Nice example of an island lager, nothing to write home about but very refreshing and malty.
Guinness Foreign Export Stout-Wow, that was a bomb of sour-mash and black malt.  It was almost too much for my poor untrained palate.

Lighthouse Lager-a standard light beer
Belikin Premium-standard Euro-style lager. Not bad, not great.

Dragon Stout-I don't know if it was supposed to be a sweet stout or something but it was just sickeningly sweet.

On other notes, fishing there is great, snorkeling is too and the ceviche is to die for (especially if it's made with conch).

I can open a beer bottle with a water bottle, a lighter, my wallet or a knife (gotta work on the paper trick).  I can do a passable impression of Miss Piggy, Yoda, Jar-Jar Binks, and Chewbacca.  I do Scottish, Jamaican and Australian Accents.  I can also do the sounds of a cow elk call, a duck, a howler monkey and a poodle throwing up.  For the finale, I can recite the Greek alphabet 3 times in under 13 seconds.

Lots of useless tricks that mostly just entertain family members and annoy my wonderful, patient wife.


You could still get some Life and Limb in Salt Lake City last weekend. Not sure about this weekend though. It was good but not something I would buy again at that price.

So, if I take a bicycle and start replacing parts one at a time when is it a new bike?

The Pub / Re: favorite bourbons

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned rip van winkle yet. If I'm not mistaken that is a bourbon and in my mind it's one of the best.

Another +1 on that.

Looks to be a good start at a forum.  If it keeps going well this could be my new go-to forum for sound advice and relaxation.  That makes me so happy.
