 Reasons to be cheerful...
Topic Originator: OzPar  
Date:   Mon 12 Oct 09:26

Too much depressing news these days. Apart from your family and the Pars (sometimes), what makes you blissfully happy???

It.s early evening here in Oz. It has been a nice day and I have just opened my second bottle of Leo beer. I am listening to a bootleg recording of Pink Floyd playing at the Montreaux Festival in 1970 and I am in heaven...

Haha VEE. It.s a Thai beer that I am very fond of. My local Aldi store is selling 12-packs at a ridiculously low price. Hence my bliss... that and the early Pink Floyd!

Music of almost any genre. Fire the headphones on (try to be a mindful neighbour), crack open a beer and crank up the volume. Enjoy.

It has been such a long wait.

Because of lockdown, I last visited a pub in June.

I have just been for two pints of Guinness and a very nice lunch at my local pub, the Pig & Whistle. It was blissful.

I am in a very cheerful mood...

Cheers (pun intended) for the intelligence report. A new one on me.

Now developing a taste (literally) for a new Williams Brothers (local brewer) offering "Talking Heads" - a very acceptable session ale using American hops.

Thanks to Ebay I.ve found a couple or so George Jones duet CDs, an eclectic mixture of artists - Keith Richards is on two separate albums.

Local-ish but Lidl does a good session ale brewed by Stewart's Brewery. Aldi were selling another Stewart's session ale as part of a beer event. It was in a multi-coloured can I reckon it was identical to the Lidl one. Very drinkable.

I.ll have a look for that.

Williams Bros. has another new one "Tin Man" which I.m keen to sample.

Seems Sainsburys is the only supermarket outlet at present - and I shy away when I see their prices.

"Talking Heads" £1.49 in Lidl..........£2.30 in Sainsburys !!!

Lidl seem to have done away with the Stewart's session ale (was 99p a bottle recently) and replaced it with another Stewart's Ale.

A no brainer.

I must admit that I thought they were just a French football team that played Celtic back in the Sixties, but no. St Etienne also is famous for its brewery...

I bought a 12-pack at Aldi this week. And what a fine beer it is! Very easy on the palate.

Cheerful again...

:)

Also did - Only Love Can Break Your Heart (cover of a Neil Young song and gained a bit of popularity with ravers for some reason) and He's on The Phone which was a Lorenzos staple in the mid to late 90s. A terrible song that hasn't aged well.

I like a beer as much as the next guy but it is possible to be cheerful without resorting to alcohol. I.m just back from a bracing walk and I.m also cheered by what.s happening in the States!

Seemingly the retail parks in Dunfermline are busier than ever as folks *technically* can't go to Livingston.
