My dad just forwarded this on to me, it is a an offer letter from Scottish Malt Distillers to my grandfather offering a managers job at Dalwhinnie Distillery then the second one is his acceptance letter on December 22nd 1937.

Truly amazing.

Beer Tap

Monday, April 6th, 2009

I picked up a beer keg starter kit from someone on craigslist over the weekend for $100 (orginal cost about $184)
I got a regulator, a CO2 tank, Keg Tap, and Beer tap

So now I need to build a bar and find a keg of good beer.

Good prospects include

Norms in Vienna

Arlington Market
Total Wine in Mclean

I am in Chicago doing a data center build out, on the first day there I was able to get out an do some photography. I started at the Metra Train Station in Itasca, which is about half a mile away from my hotel.

Once in Chicago I walked around looking for opportunities for some night time shots.
