The Scotch Come Down To London

There is hardly anything worse to do than to call a native of Scotland "Scotch".  It is at best a double insult, first of all it could be seen to demean one of the world's greatest spirits - Scotch Whiskey and secondly the correct term is "Scots" however in this case I think I dare say the wrong thing.  Sadly, CFDevcon a well anticipated conference scheduled for late September in Brighton, England had to be cancelled at the last minute.  The organizers put a lot of effort into making it fly but alas they were unable to do so.  So the organizers of Scotch on the Rocks have put together a one day event at the greatest of all UK institutions, a pub.  The event will be called "A Wee Dram" and full details can be found here.

I have a feeling this will be a marvelous event, Adam Lehman is slated as part of the key-note  and there are some great speakers.    For some unknown reason they asked me to speak too, well there's no accounting for taste; hope to see you there.

Makes me wish I was on the other side of the pond. I love drinking scotch. Which one? All of them!

@Will yes that is a great question there are just so many and I have only tried a few, one of my favorites is a single malt called Laphroaig, it has a very smokey sort of aftertaste.

People talk, walk, eat, sleep online, it's a world that is pacing at the highest speed towards an unknown land of their own and there is no end to this race.

It is no surprise that the city has growing crime rates. Lots of homeowners are considering home security systems in Dallas to protect their valuable belongings and a lot more importantly their loved ones.

The reason rashes on skin are of significant importance is because rashes cause extreme discomfort and aggravation to the one suffering from it, unless it is treated in a proper way.
