After working in the garden and hot sun, nothing is more refreshing
than a cold Guiness Extra Stout. I dislike most other beers (mostly
favor chardonnay). But a satisfying glass of wine has too much kick
when I'm hot and tired and need rehydration (yes, I'm a light weight),
and beer seems to be the solution. I feel like it has vitamins,
especially beer, but that could well be rationalization.

Tequila: yum but deadly

Wow, an OT topic I can participate in :-)

Regards,

Kathleen
