@ngh: in the course of sourcing botanicals for a craft distillery I do some work for, I found a Japanese bitter orange tree living at a local nursery. Native to Northern Japan and Korea, it is the root stock for most Florida orange trees because of it's tolerance to low temperature.

@fred: what are the odds it will be the garb of Krishna Consciousness devotees?

@Sem: my whisky society has a single malt in from Goa, India. Very pricey but I'll have to try a dram. In the cupboard for the festiveries is a stonking Pedro Ximenez sherry, some bourbon barrel aged beers and some Polish cherry brandy-thing.

Do you guys no anything about balut? Back in the old days my buddy Ben would threaten to trade me a couple balut eggs for one of my Moms Peanut Butter n Jelly sammiches. Apparently it's an egg with a developed chicken in it- best eaten at about 16 days of gestation... anybody hungry?

Ah, bourbon-barrel aged! Man, Jack Daniels has some of its barrels in every small distillery, winery, brewery and cidery in North America...I shudder to think how much Jack goes down American gullets every year.

Bill: Bryce put me onto that. Ummmm, no thanks.

@Sem: wow, cool! I'm about 75 km north of where commercial orange groves start, but you see a few yards here and there that have citrus trees.

@Stanley: Gainesville is equidistant from the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic (about 95 km from either) and a womping 60m above sea level, so, it usually gets below freezing 5-7 times per year, but usually not until January. What's unusualy is that it's 12C in the afternoon and it usually gets back up to at least 18C when it gets cold.

True that, coel. The rum produced at the little place I'm associated with is something of a sensation here, where one bottle of three spirits sold is rum of one kind or another. The product is aged for a year in JD barrels, and it is a magic transformation.

@Sem: I once had a whisky aged in a rum barrel (one of Ichiro's card series) and wasn't convinced it was a good idea. The rum side was too strong

no Stanley, no cold! but it's a good defense against dehydration and hangovers. (and tastes great; and no corn syrup)

why would someone hang a christmas tree upside-down? and why aren't those people quarantined!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/9/17 2:09pm Stanley:

@coelacanth∅: We got plenty of restaurants where you bring your own bottle and bars that allow you to bring your food but I've never heard of a place that does bring your own mixers.
Avatar Sat. 12/9/17 2:11pm Jay/London:

maybe we should start one stanley :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/9/17 2:11pm coelacanth∅:

haha yeah i'm special!
i think if everyone started doing it the bar owner would start charging more for it.

Grinning whilst in the kitchen to the Possum. That's some expert free-form spinnin' there, DJ Bill. Thanks! Now pass the whisky and the kets to the lawnmower, I'm going to Town.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/9/17 2:13pm Stanley:

We could start a place where you can bring your own bottle, food and mixers. Wait.....that's called throwing a party.
Avatar    Sat. 12/9/17 2:13pm Bill Mac:

Is it town time already?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/9/17 2:15pm coelacanth∅:

i've often thought about opening a pub with a juice bar and both typical bar snacks and also more wholesome ones.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/9/17 2:15pm Sem:

You're right, there's still some in the bottle, and I gotta get the angle grinder out and cut this bracelet off my ankle before I head out.

oh no Sem!!

@coelecanth I'd go there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/9/17 2:23pm Stanley:

That's a very odd cover! A sort of party game?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/9/17 2:25pm coelacanth∅:

well, at least the pub i go to has kombucha tea, and some cane sugar-sweetened sodas and ginger beer. it's a step in a good direction anyway. i know at least one person who never drinks alcohol there, but still has a good time.

It reminds me of a Thurber drawing.

Reminds of a scene from the Human Centipede
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/9/17 2:27pm melinda:

I wish there was a pub like that near me. There is a kombucha bar that also serves cider, so that's similar. Not walking distance though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/9/17 2:29pm Sem:

Diggin' this very much.
Avatar    Sat. 12/9/17 2:29pm Bill Mac:

Found this one in the new bin today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/9/17 2:32pm Sem:

I see it is Corsican music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/9/17 2:32pm Stanley:

(The mind boggles)
On that note, I must wish everyone a very good afternoon/evening. We're off out to hunt down some food. Great show, Bill. Great chat. Really looking forward to Christmas day. Perfect for our post-lunch pleasure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/9/17 2:33pm Sem:

See ya later, Stanley!
Avatar    Sat. 12/9/17 2:33pm Bill Mac:

For sure Stanley! Hope you stop by for the festivities!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/9/17 2:34pm coelacanth∅:

melinda there's i think 4 places in this village that have kombucha. it's the good marketing of one particular woman.
strangely the expensive tiny "wine bar" has "calmbucha" (the trade name) for $4./pretty good-sized beakerful, served with dignity; while the dive bar has it $4./ a small glass.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/9/17 2:34pm coelacanth∅:

take care Stanley

What is your village, coel, if you don't mind saying?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/9/17 2:37pm coelacanth∅:

new paltz,ny (but i live just outside of it now, in a town that's at least as anti-progressive as new paltz is progressive.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/9/17 2:38pm melinda:

There's a SUNY there, right?

Bit of a wistful elegiac feel to this set, Bill. Contemplative, even. We lose connections to people who find places in our hearts, it's feels bad to have to let them go.
See you Christmas morning, and I am hoping all ^ above, too. Shiny side up going home. Later, all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/9/17 2:53pm melinda:

I like this soundtrack.

Soon Sem!!
Avatar    Sat. 12/9/17 2:55pm Bill Mac:

I know Sem, it feels uncomfortable confronting it, but it's got to be done. You hate to lose the good ones especially. Thanks for the eloquence to say what I cannot...

Later man, see you Christmas

ps my friend (and everyone's) -who also happens to have been filipino, had his own fan page created for him on facebook and it's used now to organise a day every year in his honor. so, it is possible for fb to not be just bullshit!

Beautiful way to end the tribute, gracias.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 12/9/17 3:48pm Brian in UK:

Bill, sad to hear of your friends' demise. Some times we lose track of people then they come back into our lives and the friendship is stronger because we kind of pick up the pieces and do not have to start over again. The old jokes and such are all there to be enjoyed afresh. It does remind us of our mortality more than someone of another generation.
The Philipinos I have worked with have been lovely people, caring and thoughtful. Onward we go. X
