The American shift has ended and yours truly is headed off to the Liquor Barn to buy another week’s supply of Mangers. People keep trying to tell me it’s the same thing as Bulmers, but I swear the former is a bit heavier tasting. Anyway, regardless, Cidercat here is headed out to get supplies, because Lord knows I’m going to need it next week while the boys are in Germany… eating Brats and drinking really great beer. I should hate them for it. I really should.

Enough about our renewed alcoholism, let’s get you caught up. On a side note, just be thankful we don’t carry a flask full of bourbon around with us anymore.
