  1. Can't complain. Hope everything is good with you and the rest of the crew at LABS (if that's still around -- I lost track of it a couple of boards ago)!
  2. I’m alive! Weird timing, because I haven’t logged on in years, but I came here today to try to find something, and saw I had a notification and followed it here. I spend a little time on the GolfWRX message board, still, but that’s about it for posting these days.
  3. That doesn't make a lot of sense to me. It's not like it was a blowout, and if Jones was out of the game for a while, why didn't he go back in at that point?
  4. If you're new to whisky, Speyside is usually a good place to start. Many of the more well known single malts come from that area, including Glenlivet, Glenfiddich (not one of my faves), Macallan (10 or 12 year are great starting points), Balvenie, and Aberlour. Glenmorangie is a personal favorite of mine, which comes from the Highlands, but it's similar in style to the Speyside malts.All of these will be on the lighter, crisper side, and they don't have the smoke and peat that turns some people off.
  5. :goodposting:ducking from the backlash bound to occur once the scotch guys read this! I think a few drops of water should always be added to bring out the flavor, but I'm not a snob about people who add a lot of water like that. My advice is to drink it so that you can enjoy it and slowly start adding less water.This is correct -- drink it how you like it. The "if you don't drink it neat, you have a ######" crowd is way off. In Scotland, when you order a dram, it comes with a little pitcher of water. Most whiskies do well with a few drops of water added to release the aroma and flavor. I
  6. I ended up picking up a bottle of Glenmorangie 18 yr. Tried it last night, and my god, it is friggin' delicious! I think it stacks up well with Macallan 18, for about 50 bucks less.
  7. I wish I could find the really detailed one I saw in Scotland. We might have gotten a paper copy of it somewhere during one of the distillery visits or the Whisky Week event we went to in Speyside. I'll try to dig through the stuff I saved from the trip.http://www.homecomingscotland2009.com/what...-week-4745.html This happened to correspond to when we were in Scotland, and it was awesome. At the Glenfiddich distillery, it started with a tour, followed by a tasting of about 20 different whiskies from various distilleries in the area (including Macallan Glenlivet, Glenrothes, etc.), followed
  8. I kind of "grew up" on Balvenie -- it was one of the first single malts I tried, and it's a really good option in the price range you mentioned. I can't say that I've seen anything from them in the price range that I'm looking at, but it would definitely be a consideration if I saw one.
  9. This may be helpful:http://whisky.scotsman.com/flavourmap.aspx I saw a grid like that with a lot more whiskies at a couple of different places when I was in Scotland last year, but I can't find it on the interweb. I'm looking for a single malt. I don't turn up my nose at blends, and I actually just had a chance to have a dram of Blue last weekend (really good, but not $200/bottle good, IMO), but I'm looking for something I haven't tried before. I saw an 18-year Glenmorangie for $100 (Glenmorangie is my favorite "everyday" whisky), that I was thinking about getting, but I'm interested in any
  10. Any suggestions for a something really nice in the $100-$150 range? My company had a really good year, and our incentive payments were pretty outstanding, so I'm looking for a nice single malt for a little celebratory purchase.
  11. "foils", when referring to powerpoint slides. I have no idea what the origin of this term is, but it grates on me for no particular reason.
  12. To be accurate, he switched putters (to one he's been testing in practice for quite some time) before the tournament started. He then switched back in the final round. However, it's not that uncommon for players to change putters, even in the middle of tournaments. Mickelson does it all the time. Tiger hasn't been the same on the greens, and I would bet that's mostly his mental state. His focus hasn't been like it was when he was dominant, which comes as no surprise. I don't know if he'll get back to being able to hole everything, especially when it matters, because putting seems to fall
  13. Dear closeted gay dude, It's sad to see you so beaten down by your beard marriage most days. But is good that you're still taking care of your grooming. I know you're, "on the fence. It has been a while since you had a pedi", but it's good to hear you're going for it and splurging for your hair and nail appointment this weekend. homoerotically yours, SM
  14. Gotta give props to MoP on a great call. I didn't think all three would go for it when it was all said and done, but obviously it's going to happen. Should be interesting to see how it all plays out.
  15. Dear 400 lb chick who has been ranting to my cube neighbor for the past 15 minutes: Aren't y'all supposed to be jolly? Thanks for clarifying. Rgds, Poor SOB who forgot his iPhone charger today and can't drown out the noise
