    I was hungover and sweating whiskey in a gray tux looking down the aisle at my beautiful bride walking my way.
    Somehow or other she managed to put up with me every day since. For that she gets a nice dinner out. And the chore of trying to put up with me further.

    Anniversary are fun.

    I like Isle of Jura. Nice price good on the tongue. But you would be hard pressed to find one I don't like.

    There are a lot to choose! Theres two I like one The Glenturret - from a really nice little town called Crieff its a small distillery but an old one. The other is Old Pulteney.. the distillery sits near the dockside and over the years it takes on the flavour of the sea - it has a delicate saltyness to it.

    Didn't visit the kitchen but I know there was fire involved. Congrats to you and your bride if a little off on timing.
    Went to a chain chop house called Ruth's Chris. Looks like there are some in the UK if you like cow.

    Hey congrats to you too! Seems like 1978 was a good year I guess there was something in the air.
