If I have to do it I might as well get some entertainment out of it.

I trust the doctors and medical science. Everything will be OK.

Should we start a bet on how much hair I will be losing?
A local hospital where a chum of mine had chemo & radiation is now affectionately known as Chernobyl.

I can guarantee the Docs & supporting staff are far more trustworthy than any faith 'healer' or snake-oil salesman - unless of course you're at the Burzynski Clinic, then you need to be concerned.

Hair? - fuck that - so vastly overrated!

That clinic is scary. At least it is in Houston not Dallas a good 350 miles away.

It is bad enough that the hospital is the "Methodist Dallas Medical Center". At least no one stopped by to pray over me.

FYI - Port is in and I am ready for the chemo.

Hey, I like my hair. I get lots of complements.

I liked my port. It looked like a giant trilobite in the bone scans

Ahh, good ol' murrikan 'craft' brewing eh? The art of trying to get some sort of flavour into over-chilled fizz. Loads of bitter tasting hops or acidic fruits - hence the abundance of IPAs & fruit beers. The base beer is still pasteurised, filtered, gas infused, almost frozen keg swill, so the 'crafting' would be so much easier if the advertisers stopped telling the largely gullible consumers how they like their beer cold.

..... but then the Bud Light fans may realise just what piss they've been chugging for decades.
Hmm...IPA, no. Great hops, no. Fruit, NO. I don't know what you get there from this side of the pond, but Stone Brewing makes a good product. Bud...anything?!? That is piss. Maybe a bottle of Arrogant Bastard Ale may make its way to you there in the archipelago, and maybe you will enjoy it. I favor it over Guinness, but again, that is a personal taste. I'm new here; are you just automatically assuming that "good ol' murrikan 'craft' brewing" is all that bad?

Not at all. Having spent loads of time in the States, I've sampled many 'crafted' beers. The brewers are trying to break the mould of mass produced over-chilled piss, but most still chill the stuff far too much which of course deadens the taste buds! They're just making the job harder.

I'm from the land of locally produced traditional ales - unpasteurised, unfiltered, lightly cooled, ungassed, huge variety of taste and no huge corporate shareholders to deal with.

As for guinness ..... .... I wonder how much they'd sell without the advertising.

Yeah, that's about right with all the hook-ups and attachments.

I think we need to meet in Portland Oregon some time very soon for a visit to Rogue and Deschutes breweries. (We can warm your beers up, and piss in them a little bit to make you feel right at home.)

Poisoning process has started. So far so good.
