Is there room for an off-topic wall category here or do you want to keep it purely about whisky? Like you could have for "Wine, beer and other spirits". Just a passing thought.

@PeatAndMeat We're completely open to suggestions on wall categories. I'll throw it back to the community, what does everyone think?

I think less is always more. Keep things clean as they are now. I am convinced though, we shouldn't refrain from going in depth about anything that is related to the core subject. There are tons of sites and networks that handle the rest. It would distract me to see beer here and I couldn't see the point to let other spirits clutter the backbone structure of this gem unless it would concern turning that beer into a malt cocktail. Do you get my point of view?

@John-Mc-Windows I think that's pretty good advice.

While I'm sure wine, beer and other topics might be interested, I wouldn't look for them here and feel it would distract from the core issues of this site. Sorry @PeatAndMeat.

The players in a D&D game I run got me some dice for Christmas...the note cautions me not to taste them because they're only whiskey coloured...the JD Single Barrel mini is for comparison purposes...colour is pretty accurate, I think...

@YakLord looks like an educational practicum in sacred geometry. Of what are those dice made?

@Victor Some formulation of resin, I believe. Nothing too fancy this time around (I do have some metal dice, my wife has some made from amethyst, I know there are people that make dice from bone and antler).

@YakLord I haven’t played D&D since the 1980s. Are the books still around? I used to buy and paint the lead figures.

@Nozinan Yep...it's onto its 5th Edition now, and while you can still get metal miniatures, you can now custom design and order 3D printed figures from a number of online stores...still have to paint them yourself... In previous years they actually given me whisky, but given the current situation, they had to settle for something they could mail to me...

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY…. an empty nest and COVID-19 have not eliminated a simple game of catch from the Father’s Day itinerary.

Happy Father's day to all who are celebrating! I am currently awaiting a brunch prepared by my family served in the style of afternoon tea...including the three level tray...

Best scones I’ve ever had! My freshly turned 14 YO daughter made them.

@YakLord @Nozinan - replying to a 5 month old comment here ...

Never actually played DnD but did used to paint the Warhammer figures when I was young in the 80's. Gun Metal Gray was always a favourite choice.

@paddockjudge - Nice! I'm counting down the days till I can get physical again but did manage to throw my toddler around and onto the bed earlier. Another month or so until all restrictions are lifted.

The little gannets polished off my bloody chocolates though ...

@RianC, LOW HANGING FRUIT!!! It starts with chocolates and before you know it the 1970s Johnnie Walker Black label is G-O-N-E. I had three teenagers under my roof at the same time. I made the message loud and clear...BOTTOM SHELF ONLY!!! Needless to say, the bottom shelf did not collect any dust...and my trophy bottles did not suffer fill-level atrophy...or deceptive rehydration.

Good luck with that, Dad. wink tumbler_glass tumbler_glass
