Health benefits of whiskey and I've been busy

Post by moosemilk » Tue Sep 01, 2015 12:40 am

Haven't been around much lately. For those that don't know, I made a mid-life choice of career change. My current occupation has served me well for 20 years now, but the lifestyle of it is for the young. So I'm heading "back to school" in a week to pursue welding. Working lots the last little bit so tuition and books are paid in advance and I can work minimal hours for the next 8 months and have enough to contribute to pay the bills. Fun fun! So I will still be here, just not as much, and still running, but not 2-3 times a week like I was (that's the hardest part!).

And now for the health benefits of whiskey. I came across this article. #7 just shows why them old shiners live so long!

Here it is:

Way to go moose. A trade is cool. And welding is always in demand. Learn to TiG good and you'll have us stillers "knocking on your door".

Just don't forget to breath every now & then....

I'll still be around, just not as much. Distilling will be left for the weekends.

Looking forward to doing some nice builds after I'm done school though. I'll be buying my own mig/tig/stick as well for "side jobs" and be able to do my own stainless tig work. Only have to small mig at the moment.

At least I have whiskey for #'s 1,2 and 10 on that list. Come in handy for school lol

something tells me there won't be as many distractions for you as there was the last time you were in school!

After reading #7 I feel a strong need for a 750 of Kessler.
