We're staying in tonight, so the bar is open. The Order of Battle to bury this worthless Year will be: 1. Whisky, Scots, McCarthy's Clear Creek Distillery, Oregon 2. Beer, Henry Weinhart's Blue Boar Ale (with supper) 3. Sparkling Wine, California, Temecula Valley, Almond-flavored (midnight toast) Amounts of the above weapons in my battle to supress the mostly-ugly memories of 2012 will be as required to achieve the objective. That is all.
