I love Guiness Stout. I don't know if that's the same as "extra"
stout, but if they're different, I'll have to find it.

Unfortunately, the medication I'm on takes all the fun out of
drinking ***, so I hardly ever drink anymore. I was never a
heavy drinker, but I did enjoy dark beers and red wine. I'll still
have some from time to time, but I no longer enjoy the effects,
because I mostly just get spacy and drowsy and a bit antisocial,
like a cranky 2-year-old who needs her nap. I've tried non-***ic
beers, and wondered what was the point. There probably isn't any
non-***ic dark beer, anyway.

Whew. You might've been in big trouble otherwise.

I've heard the best Guinness is served in Dublin. I've promised myself
that one day I'll find out if that's true.

My first legal drink was Guinness but I've gone off it over the years-
every so often I fancy one, take 2 mouthfuls and remember that I don't
like the burnt taste and Dave finishes it off for me

I'll be trying my first in a bit.

Right now, I'm enjoying my newly found eggnog. I usually spike it with a
little bourbon to bring the *** level up a bit (it's about 30 proof out
of the bottle).

This time I added some pear-in-bottle brandy that was not all that good.
Pear flavored eggnog is... interesting. I shall have to try eggnog-braised  
pears later this year.

Hugs and Purrs,
Mark

I don't think I've ever drunk eggnog unless it's something like
advocaat (excuse spelling) I used to love that with lemonade when I
was a ***ager, it was one of the few ***ic drinks I liked that my
mother didn't mind me drinking as she thought it was "lady like"
