Yuletide. Sorta was on party duty there from 4:30 pm Friday to this morning. We still don't have tree. Shovelled the driveway this morning. Planning to check the budget against actual mid-month spending. Planning to write about beer in Ontario from 1783-1795. Need to clean the house. Watch some football. Have a shower. Arrange leftovers into new meals. And post the final entries for the Yuletide Christmas Hanukah Hogmanay Kwanza and Festivus 2013 beery photo contest.
Every year I tweet the rules a little. Streamline the process a bit. This year, the mini iPad has made the gallery loading a bit more efficient but I dropped the identification of whose pictures are whose. I am planning to list all entrants when I announce the awards and prizes for you most active readers. I may be able to list all entrants in gallery order of appearance. That might work. So have a look. Here are the other photos in the first gallery posted the other day. I don't see an ugly entry prize this year. But I see one for best action photo. Lots of backlit glowing beer photos. Lots of gleaming bars and breweries. Fabulous. The reason for the season is evident. Time for a porter and port, Santa's favourite.
