about Beer….

guinnessdraughtcc2Okay ,So this begins my odd beer  journey…

One day I had a headache , I would rather do with out the whole head issue to begin with.  It has been a long time since I partook  in drink, eating is right up there with ,well enjoying a meal,just cut out spirits. I have friends that know what beer pairs  well with what food. Usually the Belgian variety.  Some cause a headache. Seems like that with most. Once in a while I would go for a Grey Goose mixed with a splash of something.

So , one day I was discussing my headache and was told,don’t you know”Guinness  is Good for You ” I was told.

I have  had Guinness  on tap , it has been ages.  I went on a quest to find a single bottle.This was around Christmas time 2016. I had no idea about the  Christmas time Special Brews. I was overwhelmed by the colors and choices of craft brews, local , imported. Geesh…  Boxes of Good Cheer Gift sets.I was looking around and spotted the Guinness draught, in a bottle.   My head swimming. I picked up the bottle ,ran away and came home. Read about the right temperature,sorted through copious videos  about  Guinness and the  Pour . But , I did not have the proper glass. Oh nooo.

What to do , well the bottle says drink it out of the bottle. No Special Guinness glass necessary. Whew.. So, I did Chill it at the right temp,from the bottle it went.

I had gas pains for days, thought I had pancreatitis. But , I only had one.. Guinness. Besides the proper glass issue, Guinness  was  good, did not induce anything except gas and  traveling gas pains…

So, as it goes. … First thoughts: smells like Guinness, a little thin  and lighter than I remember, Huge  on  bubbles…   -Need to try again for Proper review.-

I have been discovering different varieties,  trying to stay with  with barley malt beers. Cause.. You know..  I want to try something different…  Guinness with be there..

Unfortunately I didn’t save or take a pic of my Guinness Draught bottle. Why do? there would be time ..This picture Courtesy of Creative Commons  Guinness Draft Beer Bottle(part of a 3d project) by oski, published May 15, 2012 http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:23087

Strange Box Update

OK, so the vitamin store  re-issued my order . this is good . Hold on .

My vitamins, that I needed this weekend, that is in my org. box is now out of stock.

Question. So, that one bottle left  was mine, is now somewhere else?. Response. Yes.

“Sigh ”

Sure it is, cause its my box.

This means it is on back order til  sometime this week. . .or possibly if my box makes its way back around,which  I doubt .

So my vitamins are either with someone who is keeping my box , which is like Christmas , or just being transported around like space junk in the universe.  I had a lot of winter goodies such as winter  care items and preventative flu remedies and some gluten free food items.  My cracker box was like a consolation gift. ..Whomp Whomp.. Oh yes, with that random  bottle of shampoo thrown in. That single shampoo bottle  keeps me laughing a bit. Just wondering why? If it didn’t have the random shampoo bottle I  would be so much more let down and bothered.

Sure, cause  its My Box.

Strange Box

Now ,I should have taken a picture of this .  I placed an order to my favorite online vitamin store. Two days ago and I received today, a box with my info on it. I opened one corner and  what is staring at me is a box of gluten  free Lundburg rice crackers excuse me, Lundburg Thin Stackers, not the rounds but the crackers in a blue box. See below. I did not order this. If one comes in my order well okay. I proceeded to open the box and there are 12 boxes inside the box and  one bottle of shampoo on top. 12 of these fitted nicely in the box and One bottle of Shampoo .

.

Well it made me laugh and before I could take a pic. As I was busy trying to find and receive My order which was not filled with Brown Rice  Stackers crackers. I had to box it up as I was on the phone with the online store.

Imagine  regular size and 12 of them and a random bottle of shampoo  on top .Just sitting there… Makes you wonder what some people order…
