If it were a K-9 it would be a dog unit in an emergency force, but a K-3? Your guess is as good as mine?
Here in the UK most people think K-9 looks like this, an AI robot dog

But come on! Keystone Light? Now that is yellow colored water with a little alcohol tossed in. The market demographics for that beer is from age 13 to 18!

I was going to make a wisecrack about most frat boys having the same maturity level as 13 year olds; but that would be insulting to 13 year olds, so I changed my mind.

Trying to make sense of WHCROT in the background (since obviously the image is a mirror image, judging by the hociR logo). Perhaps it means "Where Humans Create Rotten Obvious Trails?"

And just what will you do with 2,000 bottles of wine, pray tell?
Sorry for the confusion. My collection is somewhat smaller than 2,000. I was referring to the year 2000 Barossa Shiraz. At any given time I don't store more than about 10 cases.

I like stouts, porters, basically anything dark, heavy, and hoppy.
Absolutely!
Unless, this is what you mean by "dark, heavy and hoppy"? (Sorry - image stolen off the web)

I recently had a bottle of a famous Canadian wine...... not bad, undistinguished but not bad....



(This is when you wish you had one of those commands that on some sites lets you type text beside your images.) Apparently, the Winery has been closed, the Wayne Gretzky name is owned by "the Wine Store", a chain that has small stores inside grocery stores. They may open another Winery and apply the Wayne Gretzky name to it, but it won't be the same as this bottle. It could have been valuable some day. We considered keeping it unopened in a safe place then we thought "what are the odds? let's drink it."

Taken with my K20D, as proof I won't buy a K-3.

Nice. Riesling is quite underrated at present. Pity really. Yes, always tough to decide what to drink and what to keep, and how long to keep it.

I just love Rieslings. When I go into the park there is a can and bottle ban, we have to take wine in tetra packs. So far we haven't been able to find a Riesling in a tetra pack. It's enough to make you want to give up camping.

Oh, I hate tetra packs. Is it just a glass bottle ban, or a total bottle ban? (You could decant, I suppose)

Enough of the grape juices.
Malted barley, hops, yeast and water. That recipe could save Tokyo.
