did some serious jonesing during my month with *no stringed instruments
of any kind.* bought a tin whistle (Guinness logo on a black whistle :)
but next time, my acoustic bass goes along.

it's just *so* different from the US. here, if you're anywhere far
enough out to call 'rural', you're just too far from the hospital, a
decent restaurant, the amenities. what I saw of Co. Kerry, you could
live pretty darn remote, and be in Killarney in 20 minutes.

hmmm . . . probably have to wait for Fiona to grow up to release our own
whiskey; however, a nice full-bodied red, with a distinct sweet roasted
malt flavour and a hoppy afterbite - that I can do ;)
