Number 395:Back at home and back to work.Straight into it, working on a Key West post.We have a LOT of snow, so I spent some time clearing the drive.That had to count as exercise as I didn’t make it to the gym.Seem to have coped well with the time difference this time.The Beer:Two Captains from Nøgne Ø of Grimstad, Norway Alcohol content: 8.5%.Picked a few beers up at Duty Free on my way home. This is an excellent IPA, very similar to mine.
