A glass of cellar-temperature Guinness each day is good for you. The curve falls off rather fast after that first glass, though.

A story:

A new priest, about to give his first sermon, is quite nervous. He seeks out the senior pastor, and admits he's a little scared.

"Ah, I still get that, son." said the old priest."To tell you the truth, I have a glass of Guinness just before the mass. It settles me."

So the young priest tries it. And he felt better. So he trieda second, and felt even more relaxed. And maybe a couple more...

Everything seemed to go well at mass. He preached his sermon, and everyone paid rapt attention. After mass, he talked to the senior priest.

"So how did it go?"

"Great work, son. You preached from the heart. It was all I could do to keep from applauding. But I have one theological point I'd like to speak to you about.

The Bible says that David went out and slew Goliath. It does not say that he whipped his ***."

It's O.K. cold, but there's more flavor at cellar temperature. I can't drink American beer like that, but Guinness is better when it's not icy cold.

Impressive photos pf impressive structures, Bahadir! And, as is the usual with you, an enjoyable narrative. Just because a "picture is worth a thousand words" doesn't mean we should abandon words for pictures!
