Wee dram for New Year

Happy New Year to everyone.  I'm savouring one of my favourite single malts tonight - "Superstition" from the Isle of Jura.

I drink it straight and unadulterated by any mixes. There's certainly no ice in this beauty, either.  I am drinking what's referred to as "three fingers of Scotch". Want to know what that is?  Hold the glass in one hand with your three bigger fingers around the side of the glass (that's the index (first) finger, middle finger and ring finger).  The ring finger rests at the bottom edge of the glass and the littlest finger is positioned under the glass to support it. Pour in a good single malt until it reaches just above the height of the index finger. That is a three-finger Scotch. The bigger you are the more whisky you drink.   Oh, to be 2 metres tall or to have fat fingers!!

Cheers to all and have a terrific 2011.

All I want for Christmas

For my Christmas present this year I purchased a piglet! This is part of World Vision's Smiles programme  which helps communities grow food for families.  This cute little porker is like a living piggy bank. When she grows up she could produce up to 20 babies per year, as well as plenty of natural fertiliser for food gardens.  I wonder if they'll call her Eventful Pig?
