Pint O' Shine was bestowed on me in the early eighties by a Biloxi MS distiller who made some of the best rum from a steel barrel I ever tasted. I was caught by his son, who was cleaning the side walks, at a hotel in Biloxi. He introduced me to his dad. Every time I passed through there I would holler at rummy on the CB radio and he would always as "Is that that pint o shine?" He was a good man.
Distill safe. Make good cuts. Enjoy yourself. Give as much as you take. Have fun doing this incredibly hard work. Be a good example. It's your hobby.

Guess mine is sort of obvious as well. I like old cars, and there always seem to be some in my yard in some state of repair, it turned from a hobby into a business of sorts. Not enough to make me rich but enough to put food on the table. Would get people coming up to me saying "you that olcarguy" it kinda stuck.
As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is impossible-
but pissing everyone off, is a piece of cake.

When I was a very young fella, my Grandma lived next to an old guy named Theo. Theo had been a soldier in the Great War, and was there the day that the Red Baron met his end. As the great man flew low over the Australian trenches, Theo got an aimed shot off at him with his .303- and reckoned he hit him too. He told me the story of it when I was about 4 or 5. I wish now that i'd been older so I could remember more of it. It certainly impressed me in my (then) youth! Theo also taught me how to crack macadamia nuts in his vice, and Grandma gave me my first taste of home brewed grog in that house too- hence the connection.

I'm still amazed to this day that I have a one person removed, personal link to such a historic event that occurred 96 years ago.
