River Tam's Dance

I am watching Netflix and catching up on Firefly episodes. When I saw River Tam dancing in Episode 5, I immediately went to see if I could find the scene on YouTube. Summer Glau is incredible, but what I found was just as amazing:

The girl here is reenacting the scene beautifully! I had to share this.

Tyrconnell Single Malt

Enter HERE to learn more about this magnificent whiskey.

I'm a fan of bourbon, Irish whiskey, and some of the tamer varieties of single-malt Scotch. I'm not a complete wimp though - I can handle Laphraoig with a small drop of water and am always open to trying something new.

Tyrconnell Single Malt Irish Whiskey at just over $30 a bottle is a gem. I'm reading reviews that compare it to a Speyside Scotch, or talk about the fruity smells and all that. I'll just say it is very distinctive and perfectly drinkable. One thing I'm sure: after a couple of sips, you'll end up agreeing with all the reviews ever written and singing the praises of Ireland.

Thumbs up!

Sgt Neil Howie, West Highland Police

“Myrtle — do you, um, do you know Rowan?”
“Course I do.”
“…You do?”
“Course I do, silly.”
“Ah, do you know where she is now?”
“In the fields. She runs and plays there all day.”
“Does she? Do you think she’ll be coming back for tea?”
“Tea? Hares don’t have tea, silly.”
“She’s a hare — Rowan’s a hare. She has a lovely time.”
One of my favorite films is The Wicker Man - the original extended version with Edward Woodward, Christopher Lee, and Britt Ekland. If you have never seen the original, for the love of all the apples on Summerisle, do not watch the remake with Nicolas Cage first. That remake is really awful awful crap (though it is unintentionally funny and worth viewing for kicks after you see the original)... anyway, Happy May!
