O.k Pint'o What Are You Reading

Read a good book? Any topic is a good one. If it is about moonshine of other spirits, beer, or wine then that is a bonus.

A paragraph in the Pratchett book had me wondering why i'd never thought of it before, but he was comparing bread to beer.

Of course bread is just yeast, grain and water.....which makes beer....




Runny bread. :mg: :roflmao: :roflmao: :roflmao:

I forget where I read it (of course!) but recent archeologists believe that agriculture was developed not to make bread, but to make beer. Due to yeast and fermentation products, it turns out beer is more nutritious than bread, but we all knew that anyway.

I was drinking a stout for breakfast last St Patrick's day and my wife was scowling, so I got some ham and told her it was a sandwich. She didn't buy it.

Getting plenty of reading in with my busted leg.

Got the 'Girl with The Dragon Tattoo' trilogy for my birthday, and just trickling through the last book now.

Got a mate works for a newsagent, so plenty of shooting and fishing mags are turning up to read in the shitter.

Also made a nice trade for some mushroom supplies with a guy who sent me a book of poems by Leonard Cohen called 'Let Us Compare Mythologies'.

Some provoking thoughts there.

My sister, a librarian and way into geneology sent me a book about my 21st great grandfather, Sir Roger of Carminow born in 1240 in Cornwall. Pretty well written by a local author/historian. I swear I had no idea there were any of those in my past.
