    Why? all that Frog March did was cut the postg and save it as an image then paste it back into a new post.

    I just saw the button that says "Launch Sentinels"

    But I dunno if I'm insulted or honored.

    Chrissy has also been offered a moderator position and has accepted, though too slowly to make the initial round of promotions. I can't remember if there's anyone else or not.
    Everything I need to know I learned through Googling.

    Doodler is banned until next week so his anouncement is late.

    I have a nice bourbon-cask-aged Bruichladdich. To my knowledge, Ardbeg and Bowmore use bourbon casks, too, and then finish the whisky in something different: sherry, port, madeira.

    If it's the same one Crosscountry and I drooled over at the Iron Cactus, Captain Swoop may be too inebriated to post for a while.

    Revised plan:
    1) Get Sticks drunk.
    2) Then, bribe him with alcohol.
    3) Profit!

    I've not had the Bruichladdich, either...yet. I do appreciate Ardbeg and Bowmore, though. My favorites remain Laphroaig and Lagavulin (I'm into a bottle of the 1991 Distiller's Edition now).

    Well...except for that single dram of 30-year-old Macallan an inebriated D.C. lawyer once bought for me. What can I say? He'd never met an Alaskan and he took a curious liking to my hat.

    Oh, looky there...my 500th post. That calls for a scotch.

    Myself I like a Jura, or to throw a cat among the pigeons a Bushmills Malt.

    I was neither displeased nor particularly impressed with the one expression of Jura I sampled. I don't mind Bushmills either. Although I have a penchant for single malts, I usually have a small selection of whiskies in the rotation at any given time. Currently:

    Lagavulin 16
    Lagavulin 1991 Distiller's Edition
    Basil Hayden 8-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon
    Jim Beam Straight Rye Whiskey

    This roundup is notable for the absence of an Irish representative it usually includes.

    Okay...I've hijacked enough, yes?

    Congrats to Chrissy, too!

    Bushmills do a Single Malt.

    And Hey Chrissie, With You and Sticks that's 3 of us in quite a small area

    Actually, that's my plan.
    I hope your plan is not moderating as much, instead of not posting at all (or a lot less). I'd hate to see you go.

    @agingjb - You have to do what you have to do, but I would suggest not doing anything too quick or too rash. Give it a go and see how it works out.
