Chances are most of you were out doing something in the yard or amongst the great outdoors in order to justify another weekend in the Summer warmth. As I stared outside at the sunny skies of Seattle these past few days I get reminded of that Country Time commercial from when I was kid and recall days spent swimming at my Aunt's pool and drinking that over sugared lemony water.source, busplunge.blogspot.com      This week is going to be interesting since we have Independence Day fast approaching and with it a wonderful and envious opportunity for us Seattleites to take in some international comforts. As for me I will be waking up at the crack of dawn to turn on the television and be as quiet as I can (while my wife sleeps) so that I can watch live coverage of the Tour de France. So without further delay the days ahead and as always please plan ahead for alternate transport home.

Cheers & Happy Independence Day

This time around it will be from Elliott Bay, but they refuse to tell me what they cask'ed for me. I guess it is a secret worth keeping and a surprise in the making. I like surprises. It goes on the bar top at 4pm. Come and get it while it lasts (we've had to throw some away out of the last 2 casks. That puts a big hurt on the feeling, you know?)." -source, The Green Frog Cafe newsletter.
