RELATED TICKERS: BUD
stop on by, tell me what your drinking. The Jukebox is located in the in the front, Bathrooms in the back.
Every comment is a dime to the salvation army.
Having a BUD myself
I would suggest liquor in the front and peker in the rear...I'm sipping on a natty ice. Got the woodstove glowing red. Thinking about frying some ham for a late snack. I just can't decide...
What's the special tonite Mr Bartender?
malt (which is probably tied into the barley)
peker=poker. Freudian slip no doubt.
Jukebox is now playing "I Know You Rider"- Hot Tuna w/ David Bromberg live Chicago 1/18/86.
dime up Fool!
And, very awesome gesture Sir!
Glenfiddich, served the only way whisky should be.
For the uninitiated, that means neat, i.e. room temperature in a glass without ice or water (or, god forbid, any other mixer).
zymok - Harry knows a lot of stuff about that kind of stuff. He just can't tell a joke to save his life. I think he's napping now, so just serve youself a dime- neatly.
And, as long as we're spending Ghost's money, let's expound on "whisky" vs. "whiskey." I am of the old school opinion that there is no "e" in "whisky" when referring to the elixir of the gods, while lesser concoctions are correctly referred to as "whiskey."
Ah, I wish the good Mr. Ghost sweet dreams and no hangover.
And a pleasant evening to you also, Mr. Fire.
Not a whisky guyIsland RumIce cold beer
Ah yes. While I am not much for rum myself, there are times when an ice cold beer simply has no peer. I prefer darker, heavier brews, although a nice light beer is sometimes a welcome change.
And now, the house is asleep save for myself, my glass is empty and my bed is calling. I wish you a good night (or morning, or afternoon, whatever your time zone) and pleasant dreams.
Happiest Holidays to you. Can I call you a cab?
Sierra Nevada Pale Ale... nothing but the best. ;)
at least for the moment

In 1987, the Midnight Riders were asked to participate in a children's charity Christmas album with their rock peers. The Riders refused. In a 1993 Guitar God Magazine article, Dusty explained: "Givin' kids charity just makes 'em weak, man. Teach a kid to fish, he can eat fish his whole life. Teach a kid NOT to fish, he starves to death. Where I come from that's murder, Homes." A few years later, the Riders grudgingly agreed to participate in a 1998 Christmas album in exchange for not having to do 30,000 hours of community service.
Coffee. Just about to jump in the car.
Who will get #100?
Gotta run to best buy and pick up a last minute gift, such a slacker.

Coal is a valuable commodity, after all.

Good Morning all, Another beautiful day at 5000'. Hey HCG, Between Shin and myself, we have 9 guys in the 10AM game today. Not sure I like my chances but I've said that before. Any big screens at the Tavern? Good luck to your guys this week.

Water and coffee tonight, but Heineken stands ready and Crown may visit before the New Year. Port and Merlot are close by, too, but brooding and aging in a cool, dark place - near the fruit cake.

Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes "If You Don't Know Me By Now".
A nun arrives at the local barJohn was sitting outside his local pub one day, enjoying a quiet pint and generally feeling good about himself, when a nun suddenly appears at his table and starts decrying the evils of drink. "You should be ashamed of yourself young man! Drinking is a Sin! Alcohol is the blood of the devil!" Now John gets pretty annoyed about this, and goes on the offensive. "How do you know this, Sister?" "My Mother Superior told me so."
"But have you ever had a drink yourself? How can you be sure that what you are saying is right?" "Don't be ridiculous--of course I have never taken alcohol myself" "Then let me buy you a drink - if you still believe afterwards that it is evil I will give up drink for life" "How could I, a Nun, sit outside this public house drinking?!" "I'll get the barman to put it in a teacup for you, then no one will ever know."The Nun reluctantly agrees, so John goes inside to the bar. "Another pint for me, and a triple vodka on the rocks", then he lowers his voice and says to the barman "and could you put the vodka in a teacup?""Oh no! It's not that Nun again is it?"
A neutron at a barA neutron walks into a bar. "I'd like a beer" he says.The bartender promptly serves up a beer. "How much will that be?" asks the neutron. "For you?" replies the bartender, "no charge"
Free drinks for everyoneOne night, a drunk comes stumbling into a bar and says to the bartender: "Drinks for all on me including you, bartender." So the bartender follows the mans orders and says: "That will be $36.50 please." The drunk says he has no money so the bartender slaps him around and throws him out.The next night the same drunk comes in again and orders a drink for everyone in the bar including the bartender. Again the bartender follows instructions and again the drunk says he has no money. So the bartender slaps him around and throws him out.On the third night he comes in, the drunk orders drinks for all except the bartender. "What, no drink for me?" replies the bartender. "Oh, no. You get violent when you drink."
HCG- I will bestow upon your fine establishent a real working jukebox- seriously. Simply click link, pick a year and scroll thru the songlist. It's free with a ton of great music- seriously.

Seriously- very cool link. Open on a seperate tab and it will continue to play as you go back to what you were doing. Enjoy! Merry Christmas. Best
Nice Gesture HCG:)
Merry Christmas and God Bless you.
Went shopping at a mall that was a nightmare for the directionally challenged(AKA me).
2 entrances/exits to Macy's(M) and TWO gamestop(GME) stores in a not-that-big mall.
Got a Kodak(EK) digital camera for Christmas. Seems to be of decent quality. Makes me consider plunking down some(very little) RL money on the stock for essentially a crapshoot, but I probably won't.
Love Will Ferrell's impression.
"Don't jerk me around, Norm. It's a simple question."
Hope all my patrons had a nice Festivus, just got back to the Bar now.
Da Bears vs the Pack is on the big screen
Bears just look ugly.

Hey Bartender, meet me out back. I've got a puff for you. I'm smokin' the Shin. The Chronic Kind. Oh Yeah!!!
The clock on the wall says 11:00. So what you need?
Wow, Bears put up 438 yds so far. And they are still moving it. Pretty strong HarryCary.
Dude I think you won our FF. Congrats unless Roddy goes nuts on MON.
And Da Bears lost like I figured they would.
Of course I'm always pulling for the Bears.
But as a realist, I needed to call them toast once Cutler went down.
John, did you ck out the JukeBox? #126? You'll lke it.
Yeah man, first tune I checked out was day in the life by the beatles.
You're right about Roddy- he just might catch 7 TDs tomorrow.Only 53 comments till 'cap out'. You're looking at $14.70.
All that music and you play the Turtles? Really?C'mon man, yer killin' me. Another cold one when you get a chance sir.
If you scroll down you can pick a decade- 40's-90's, then a year, then a song. Pretty bad, eh?
Next tune on the Juke box was-
A whiter shade of pale.
Let's try this din't even know I envoked the Turtles...;)
And a Dos Equeis for you Sir.
Let try the 70's
Brown Sugar by thy Stones should play-
#150- Hey Bartender, wanna hear a true Whiter Shade of Pale story? And another cold one sir- when you get a chance.
How do you keep the juke box rolling while posting on Caps.
put the 70's on and my Lady was totally digging it.
And of course I want to hear another Whiter shade of Pale story..
Beers on Me..
Open another tab. Dial it up, go bach to orig. tab and it will still play audio.
Well, since you asked. When I was in High SWchool in LA, we used to cut school and camp out for concert tickets. At that tim, the first ten in line would get front row center. Well, Procal Harem came to play so we, a friend and I were like 3er in line. Best seats FRCenter. Well, occasionally we would sell the tickets, but just couldn't get off FRC Procal Harem. Whiter Shade so what, right?
Well I got stuck with 2 tickets, I think it was at the Palladium in Hollywood, anyways I went and the warmup band, in their first show ever was an unknown band called the Eagles. Gospel.
Having an ice cold glass of water.
Been a hectic few days, and we put a serious dent in the booze supply.
But I'll run out to make sure the bar is stocked,for when we do a Toast to 200.
Pretty sure were gonna get there, so I'll bring an extra 20 beans Might see a kettle while I'm out...
Went to a YES! concert, Memorial Coliseum, Portland Oregon in 1971, backup/opening act was the Eagles. Should have left after they were done, I think my hearing loss was caused by the second act......HUH?
"It is a cruel thought, that, when we feel ourselves standing on the firmest ground in every respect, the cursed arts of our secret enemies, combining with other causes, should effect, by depreciating our money, what the open arms of a powerful enemy could not." – Thomas Jefferson
It's noon here and I'm on vacation, so opening yet another BUD.
While I was out, dropped $20 bucks at the kettle by my local Jewel.
Really should of put a kettle in the front of the bar.
Oh well I pooched that, but if anyone else is interested heres the link-
Did you figure out the tab thing? Got Muzak? I'm still smokin' the ShinRamyun- want a puff? It goes well with your humble pie.
By the way, Procol Harem was NOT a one hit wonder, they had two. The other was "A Salty Dog". Also, now that I think about it, that show could have been at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium.
primescot1 - '71 sounds right.
Procol Harum A Salty Dog Live Pop2 1971 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f7JBpRragNU
Well, three hits if you count "Conquistador" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Biu0Am6js1c&feature=related
Speaking of pie-
Go Go Godzilla-
Humble Pie- Smokin'. You got it. Nice. Best (original) versionhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MO0l36nEvCc&feature=related
Here is the "Country" Jukebox (in case you havn't found it already- if you like that sort of thing-midwest and all).
Same deal, different music. The Patsy Cline "12 Pack"http://woodchucky.com/12packs/PatsyCline/index.html
$18.00 to you.
Gotta here the James Gang-
Needs more cowbell...
Hey Bartender, what time is happy hour?
Wanted to here this also-
Hey Star, Happy Hour is when you grab 200.
Heres an old Irish tune-
While you enjoy your 101 on the rocks....(yech)
Scalped Tull in '71 too. It may have been at the Forum- where the Lakers still play I think. I was taking a lot of concert pix with my pals borrowed camera back then. Mostly on 'slides'. Maybe I should dig 'em out. I know I have the First Eagles show and many of Ian Anderson (Tull). Maybe worth something to someone. Jeez, they hav'nt seen daylight in what, 40 years, shite. Hey, is your 'Buzz Box' locked up from last nt like mine? Godd thing, there'd be some pissed off (this is an investment site only) peeps. Lastly, I regret to say that the mighty "Red Zone" is no more.
Yep my buzzbox is loaded with our comments also. But hey think of the Children.
Really Shin beat you? I need to check the score on that one.
Should add that the comments were from last night. Still seeing the same buzz.
I never said that. Jordy let me safely thru Mr. Rodgers neighborhood. But alas...
Ok, went and checked the stats.
Congrats Man what are you having on the house?
Not quite sure how to time this so you get 200
That should work, and I'm going for another BUD
Sorry for the delay but I'm painting. The great distractor is also the painters little helper and did a poor job filling nail holes on my new bartop (yup, the granite one) trim. I couldn't have that soo... $19.50 to you. And make mine a Harvey Wallbanger. When you get a chance, of course.
getting ready to get into some vino...
need to get kids down first...they are buzzing from Christmas still...energy-wise that is... : )
Anybody seen the bartender?
Harvey Wallbanger for star.
And a nice chablis for Momo.
A toast to all my patrons-
Thank you all for stopping by and having a drink. Special thanks to my regular Starfirenv.
Dude you kept this place in business.
20 beans to the kettle (task completed earlier)
OK one more-
Then I'm cutting you off :)
One last drink for this blog-
Bother me tomrrow, today I found no sorrow-
Point, set, match.. And high score. BB got me on "Biggest Blowout". I thought 40 pts just might do it. Also, no special thanks to me- YOU are Da Man. Enjoy this.
It's A Beautiful Day- U2http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=co6WMzDOh1o&feature=bf_prev&list=TLuGMIunUxut4&lf=artistob
