Funny how these 'little' jobs seem to snowball

I have a contact (never learned his name) who makes "fire wine". A remarkably strong form of home brew. I'll cure your ignorance before the month is out Graham!

Or you can use it as jet fuel, should that be required!

Powerful (but excellent) stuff when it's straight from the Bogs!

Ooooohhhh ... I vaguely remember that stuff!

Irish hill-folk version of moonshine! Right from the heather and bogs!

I got introduced to it in a small Irish pub in a rough-n-tumble frontier town - an 8x12 foot wood-floored tent saloon with a plank over two wooden whiskey barrels for the bar. Woke up floating in the pond - minus any valuables I might have had left. The cool waters did help the pounding in my head. And I'm pretty sure I needed the bath after being drug out across THAT floor!

Ah, some more of that well-spent youth! Hey, wait a minute. That was only 2 years ago!

Personally I went fishing for brown trout and kept well clear of the poteen (the trout kept fairly clear of me as well, except for one about nine inches long which went back with instructions to grow bigger)

I have some home-brew cider. In truth it could do with another month or so rest, but if you're not fussy...

Just raced Half Ironman 70.3 Antwerp Triathlon on Sunday. Really nice city - well recommended.

Had a great swim, the bike sucked (headwind and rain) but I smoked the run and pulled a 1:43 half-marathon out of somewhere :approve: . Excellent race and a thoroughly good weekend.

Have suggested they change the date so I get to next year's Moot.

Mmm. I loafed around in my pants, watched the Time Team omnibus, read a book about medieval naval warfare, trawled the internet for anything interesting, had an afternoon snooze and pottered in the shed.
Such is life.

Still torture-ing more poor innocent iron with fire and hammers. Oh, and occasionally making something. (That way there's no "false advertising).

I just wish more of the "weight loss" while working in the forge in these high temps and humidity was more ... permanent ... instead of just being poured out of my boots at the end of the day. And drinking that first cool beverage afterwards just adds it all back.
