    Good, you're not afraid of meeting me! No sword this time, fake or otherwise. New doggie though.

One thing about my new way of eating...cutting way back on the number of different things you eat led to an increase in palate sensitivity. IOW, all I need or like on my food these days is salt and pepper, where I used to be a garlic & onions freak. This translates to beer in terms of hoppiness -- I like my beer a LOT milder these days...when I was in Thanet in December, I found the Courage and Harvey's to be nearly overwhelming. The sorts of stuff I used to crave -- no thanks.

Good timing, actually, since as they say, your palate becomes less sensitive as you age. Guess I'm getting younger.
