Still nice, because I like smoothies.
Nothing wrong with an adult smoothie. I've been known to put a little rum in a pineapple smoothie.

Re: What are you drinking right now?

Heaven Hill Mellow Corn BiB. Straight forward and pleasant (though uncomplex), and hard to beat the price at $10.99. Not everything on the bottom shelf is only good for dumping in Diet Dr. Pepper.

Margarita. I wish it was a peach one. I don't know where to find them, and I don't know how to make them, but I had one on my birthday a couple of years ago at a restaurant (that no longer has them). Mmm.

You might then be confronted with "But what if it is true. Wouldn't it be better to error on the side of caution, just in case?"
Good old Pascal's Wager in new clothing. It's not any more valid than Pascal's Wager, but it's nice to see it still gets mileage.

Re: Alcohol Content of Beer in Utah vs Walmart

They don't have "separate" production lines. When a brewery switches from a higher ABV beverage to a lower ABV beverage, they have to "steralize" the entire production line. That would make sense given brewing beer is a batch process. The issue will be that there won't be enough demand for 4.0% ABV...

Re: WOW. The natural history sure blows holes in LDS Theology!

You simply cannot sweep the Garden of Eden and the Fall under the rug. The entire LDS plan falls apart without it. Without a literal fall of Man the atonement makes no sense, and neither does the temple. Yep, beyond the obvious (the need for Jesus to fix the Fall), the doctrine of the subordination...

Re: Facebook "Education Help"

Re: Alcohol Content of Beer in Utah vs Walmart

Question. Does 3.2 alcohol cost less than 5%? The 3.2% limit in Utah is by weight not volume. A 3.2% ABW beer is 4% ABV, mixing the units exaggerates the difference. The big players Bud Light, Coors Light, and Miller Lite are (outside of 3.2% ABW states) 4.2% ABV so we're talking about a 0.2% ABV d...

Where the hell is the ex-mormon family home evening guide? (Maybe I should start one :twisted: ) One suggestion is to delve into philosophy.

Re: What are you drinking right now?

It’s a good one, for sure. Just had another one tonight with Basil Hayden’s Dark Rye. Easy cocktail to start with, for sure. I just love how spirit forward it is. Some cocktails just kinda remind you a particular liquor is in it when it peaks out from behind the other ingredients. An Old Fashion ma...

Re: What are you drinking right now?

I usually don't like cocktails, but the other night I tried the Christmas special at a favourite watering hole...... real eggnog. Eggnog (probably from a carton) but with spiced rum on ice with a light dusting of cinnamon on the rim. Sweet to a fault but brought out happy memories with a twist. Mer...

A few friends, A bottle or two of wine, and a game of Cards Against Humanity can make for a VERY fun evening.

Re: What are you drinking right now?

I didn’t feel more relaxed and I actually felt tired haha... but that could have been the time. If you are already tired then some light drinking will tend to bring out your tiredness in the same way that relaxing on a nice comfy couch in a warm room when you are tired will make you sleepy.

I knew you would have a good retort RR! Unfortunately, this is one I can't miss due to any illness, unless I'm literally on my death-bed.

Re: Coffee 101

One question for everyone. Recommendations on cleaning a stainless steel carafe? Mine had been picking up a bit of a stain and normal washing methods are not helping it. Baking soda or vinegar in hot water soaks are traditional methods. If those don't work you can do a bit of a gentle scrub with an...

Re: Have any GA's talked about a faith/truth crisis?

I would think for a GA to even admit that they had experienced a faith crisis would be like putting a damper on their "church progression". Kind of like, "Yeah, you made it through that bad spot but what were you doing there in the first place?" Yep. With the connection between sin and doubting any...
