Hi Guest,

Just a note to point out our TBP-initiated drive to raise funds for the Bulls Football IPF - doing our share, and more.  Please consider donating at least $23 to the effort, and passing on to others as well.  You can read more about the project at the link above.  


Go Bulls!

Thank you,

Brad Brad

  1. He is starting his third year this season. His first was 2017.
  2. Jimmy came made his Major League debut in the 8th with 1 out and a man on 2nd, yesterday, against Cleveland. He promptly gave up a 2 run homer to Greg Allen. Carlos Santana grounded out, then Jason Kipnis hit another one out of the park. Jose Ramirez, Jake Bauers , and Kevin Plawecki singled, Plawecki driving in Ramirez. He got roughed up pretty good, 3 earned runs on 5 hits. He did throw more strikes than balls, though.
  3. He battled his weight all of his life. ESPN did a 30 for 30 piece about him a couple of years ago and he had taken steps to help himself. Guess it did not work out. I met him at a Highlands high school football game about 10 or 12 years ago.
  4. I'm technical support. Mutt will contact me when he has something scheduled. However, I should have the highlight video done sometime next week.
  5. The Brewers visit Cincinnati for a 4 game series, starting tonight.
  6. I'm out of Double Oaked again. God, I love that bourbon, but I need to slow down a bit.
  7. I'd been out of Double Oaked for quite a while and during the Woodford tasting I was reminded how much I like it. Obviously, I picked up an new bottle.
  8. Last Thursday evening, we went to a little bourbon bistro called the Purple Poulet in Dayton, Ky. They offered flights, so I tried one called "Neighborhood Hooch" which featured bourbons distilled local to the area. It included Riff's OKI, Boone County Eighteen 33, and George Remus. It's too bad OKI is no longer being produced. It was the best of that bunch. Really good. The Eighteen 33 was OK. I didn't like George Remus at all. Hardly any taste, compared to the others, and what there was, wasn't very good. To me anyway.
  9. Single Barrel was $39.99 at Wild Turkey. The sample at the end of the tour included Longbranch, WT101, Russel SB 10yr, and their Rye. I like the Longbranch.
  10. I don't care if all P5 games are on the road. I like the old @Bull-by-Marriage mantra. "Any time. Any place." Just make the buyout $2 million +. Better to beat them on their turf than ours anyway.
  11. Anymore you have to have internet access to your home with or without TV, so that is a wash. Even if I end up paying as much in the long run, I still prefer a la carte streaming over 500 + channels I don't want or need and not getting what I want. As with everything else, the fragmentation will iron itself out as the consumers show the streaming providers what they want and will pay for.
  12. We are up in NKY, Cincinnati Metroplex. The people we are staying with want to do the three tours nearer to Lexington. We want to come up for the Bourbon Festival in Bardstown, this year, if we can work it out. Maybe we can do KAD and Peerless, then.
  13. Didn't say I drank it, just using it as trade bait. I have a connection to Fat Dog, and I like to promote the TBA as much as I can. Mrs. S drinks it, though, and my daughter loves Touch. I dearly regret missing your tasting. They are always fun and the selection of bourbons interesting. I was going to bring those Virgil Cane's I picked up, too.
  14. I sampled several bourbons I had not tried, last night at a friend's home up here in Kentucky. Russell Reserve 10 Year Small Batch was one of them. Very good (or the others were really bad and that just stood out :)). We are taking the distillery tours on Friday. Wild Turkey makes Russell, so I'll see what they have available in the gift shop. RR10SB is only $32, at Krogers.
