Whiskey shortage coming your way

One of the oldest distilleries in the country is warning of what some observers are calling a “whiskey apocalypse.”

“Despite the increase in distillation over the past few years,” says Buffalo Trace, “bourbon demand still outpaces supply.”

The apocalypse is looming, explains Esquire, because whiskey has become trendy overnight.

Funny you should post that...I was just talking to Mrs. Sionnsar/libremort today. With luck, I will see her before the end of June.

Sion left SUCH a legacy...I miss him still...

The pain continues, I see.

IN IE, at the top, right, just below the Red X, there should be a rather diminutive, black down-arrow-lookin thingy.

It’s right next to a magnifying glass.

Click it, and a list will appear.

At the bottom of that list, click “Manage Search Providers”

The box that opens next is IE’s “Manage Add-ons” dialog. From here you can add/remove search providers, and browser add-ons. By default, the dialog opens with “Search Providers” highlighted in a short list off to the left.

The main part of the window will show a list of search providers that your IE currently knows. Anything in this list that you DO NOT want, Right-click on it, and pick “Remove.” Be aware that IE insists that you have no less than ONE Search Provider, and will not allow you to select “Remove” if you’re highlighting the only provider in the list; the selection is grayed out.

Once you’ve got that sorted out, note in the list off to the left that there is a “Toolbars and Extensions” at the top. Highlight that selection, and you’ll get a whole different list in the main portion of the dialog.

BEWARE: Here there be dragons.

THIS is where auto-downloading garbage OFTEN comes to roost in your browser’s innards. OTOH, stuff you want will show up here, too; so take a minute to scan the list, and you’ll see friendly names like Shockwave and AdobePDF. But you may see your unwanted browser intruder here, too.

If you find something in this list that you know doesn’t belong, highlight it and click the “Disable” button at the bottom right corner of the dialog box.

You will likely need to re-start your browser for changes to take effect, but that will also reveal if they STAY gone, or if they have programmatic means of self-resurrection.

REPLY, and let me know what you discover; especially if there’s anything in there that you want gone that either won’t let you remove it, or comes back after you re-start your browser.

I’m going to go battle on the highway for 90 minutes, or so, but I’ll look in after I get home, and we can pick up from there.

I can always count on you to bring reality into focus!

And tomorrow, I will make some ice cream, and you are invited to share if you are so inclined!

This batch will be “Mocha” flavored! I’m excited to start it!

(It’s good to see you again! You have been missed! Fill me in thru the back channels...)

"How about the clock? No so good?"

I recommend a "Grandfather Clock", with extra-heavy weights.

It can't be a pleasant situation for the bug, either.

It just doesn’t seem the same with the Morning Kittah to start the day.

There are quite a few things to do today, but I’m either going to have to start the day with ibuprofen or not do what needs to be done. On a happier note, the ice cream tub is in the freezer, bringing the fluid inside down to as low as it will go: -5 F and that means I probably won’t get the ice cream done until tomorrow.

But that’s OK...my kitchen needs to be cleaned today, and then I’ll have room to make the ice cream.

They should watch where they're going.

Ever shine a flashlight on one of them? They have little beady glowing eyes... They're probably aliens.

Which is why, after they smash into the windows and siding and they are sitting around on the porch going "What was that?" I don't feel a bit of guilt listening to their crunchypart crunch when sortofbyaccident they find themselves under my boot..

I really dislike is Japanese beetles. They attack zucchini plants.

And roses.

And peonies.

And a bunch of other stuff.

And their babies are just a bunch of ugly grubs.

Like, say, oBomba voters...

I don’t like the crunchy sound because too often, the squishy sound goes along with it.

My old age has made some major changes in what I can abide and what I can’t.

"The sun is beginning to rise ,at this location."

If you venture to the center of the North or South Pole, you can have sunrise on one hand, and sunset on the other.

The night watch was on duty of the bridge of the Pinta when the first blip appeared on the scanner, the young man at the duty station looked up from his tablet where he was reading a novel, momentarily interested in his job. After a couple of minutes of nothing he drifted back to the make-believe world of the novel in his hand.

Another blip would sound a few minutes later. This time he called the acting commander of the ship, since the Captain and Commander were both sound asleep. The Lieutenant and the young Ops man watched the scanners, fiddled with the bandwidth of the scans, but the scanners found nothing. After a few minutes they decided that this had just been a hiccup and drifted back to what they had been doing, being bored.

The next time the scanners sounded a blip it showed the object as being only a few miles behind their ship. Then there was nothing. The Lieutenant and the Ops man and now the helmsman on duty were all trying to find out what had popped up and disappeared. They decided to activate the active search and targeting system to improve the chances of finding whatever it was.

This system included cameras that would zoom in when an object was found. They looked at the area where the blip had supposedly been. They saw nothing but flaring from some stars, so they screened out the stars. Then they saw something fuzzy pass in front of the image. Quickly they realized it had been a lot closer than where they were looking, thus it had been out of focus.

The computer automatically searched and tracked the object but failed to identify it. Finally the object stopped and they got a look at it, but it was dark and even with infra-red and other systems getting a good look was impossible. They only knew it was some kind of ship.

“Get the Captain. Sound General Quarters...” the Lieutenant said before the ship jerked and even with artificial gravity he was thrown to the bulkhead.

“Venting atmosphere in the rear section, near the engine room” someone reported “It’s being sealed”

Finally the alarms sounded. Seconds later they could hear boots pounding up and down the corridor outside and also above them.

“Arm plasma cannons. Where are they?” The Lieutenant demanded of the Ops man. They looked at the screen, it was filled with blips. The screen showed that they were well-surrounded and outnumbered.

The Captain walked onto the bridge, looking crisp in a perfectly clean and ironed uniform. “What is going on?”

He didn’t really need an answer after he saw what was on the screen. The main Ops officer took his seat, relegating the younger man to his assistant.

“Who are they?”

“They haven’t communicated with us” the Lieutenant informed him.

“Scanners are detecting more than two hundred of the small vessels and further out is returning signatures of about four very large vessels” the Ops “Mother ships, I guess”
