News To Me
This may be ancient news to you, but I just discovered this a few days ago.
You can now run Apple's Safari web browser on your PC. This is pretty cool. I like the look of the browser, and it seems to load faster than Firefox.
What I do not like is the lack of user controls. For example, it will not let you change your homepage. Or if it will, I have not figured out how yet.
BEST of all, it is FREE. Free shit is always better than shit you have to pay for.
So if you have not kicked Internet Explorer to the curb yet - there is no excuse. Run either Firefox or Safari. It is free. Just download it.
BIG NEWS for this weekend! Sort of exciting. I have a boat handling final exam of sorts. People will be on hand to observe me conduct various tasks. If I pass the practical exam, then I get a promotion in an unpaid volunteer position. But I will get out on the water more often, so that is good.
A lot of training and study went into the promotion in the volunteer gig. Many hours. What happens next remains to be seen. I either pass or I don't.
And now.....BEER NEWS! Yes beer news. News about beer.
While I was out and about, I ventured into a different supermarket than the one I normally go to. It was the same chain that I go to, just another store. And it had a nice beer selection. So I selected this. From the Fish Brewing Company of Olympia WA, Fish Tale Organic India Pale Ale.
A pretty good IPA if I say so myself. Easy drinking, smooth - yet with enough hops kick to make it an IPA.
The Pacific Northwest is someplace I have to get to one of these days. Portland Oregon is at the top of the list. That city is LOADED with micro breweries. And then there is Seattle, Olympia, and a bunch of other cities. All full of beer.
