For those on the "East Coast" this is what it looks like. It tastes as good as it looks.

The only time beer is worth the water to make it is after pushing a mower all over the yard in Florida summer weather, and then it doesn't matter what beer it is because the first one is gone almost before it is opened. However, having sold my mower in 1990.....

Now I am not on board with that.

We used to make up a shandy after yard work back in Ireland. But now I stick a couple of Yuenglings in the freezer for twenty minutes after working up a thirst.

For you west of the Mississippi here's what it looks like. 191 years young.

Historically, if I had a glass of wine, I would lose most of my “good judgement.” Two glasses of wine, I am prone to dancing on the table. 3 glasses of wine, I’m dancing naked on the table.
Recently, I have noted, one glass of wine, I am going to bed. 2 glasses of wine, if I am lucky, I am knee walking to bed.... or sometimes going to bed like a snake.... resting half in bed waiting for the strength to get all the way into bed, rolling face up ...... before completing the ‘passing out’ maneuver. I am just no fun at all. So you folks can drink all you can afford and I will be content with coffee, canned milk and sugar. Even with that, I don’t make a good designated driver because I have to make a pit stop ever 100 yards.

I learned to tolerate a beer with a floater of ginger ale or seven-up on top in the British seaman's club on the waterfront of Hong Kong. Think the Brits there called it beer with tops. It was fine after a hot day of trudging the streets on a shopping spree, getting those cheap handmade shoes and a custom suit in a couple of days. Otherwise I hate beer. Rum for my men, beer for my horses.

Called a lager top.

Less soda than a shandy which is more of less fifty-fifty.

Hey same thing happens to me all the time.

Some big mouth know it all stole my password and posts on TF with my user name.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it

And this all under the header "did someone edit my post?" - which, in fact no-one had...and all of this under the site area called 'How to use the forum, site news, and account concerns.'...because I suspect the OP was similarly affected like all you others..?
