News is red hot today here as government proposed a new tax bill lowering taxes all around - even considering lowering our lovely 180% car tax as well.

>Not a chance in hell any significant changes will make it.

Echo that. Talk, talk, talk - no changes.

Agreed. Heard that several times over the last years.

>PffffT!! Amateurs

Yup, I'm usually ending the day with diarrea from 8-10 cups. Getting worse as I drink more and more coffee.

Good tip RC.

I'm also addicted to everything ginger. Especially these beauties:

Well, because ginger is awesome.

I have experimented with ginger in a lot of ways as I can't get enough of it.

I've done a nice combo of fresh ginger and lots of lime juice in the blender and then through a sieve. In the fridge and you have a nice fresh drink.

The other day I found a ginger beer recipe:

1. Ground fresh ginger in a jar with equal amount of sugar.
2. Let is rest for 3-4 days until it ferments and starts producing gas.
3. Boil a nice huge chunk of ginger with 1L of water for 30 mins.
4. Put it through a sieve and mix in some sugar for taste and further fermentation.
5. Add another liter of water.
6. Let it sit on the kitchen counter for a few days to buble a bit more.
7. Pour in a bottle and keep in the fridge.

8. Mix ginger beer, dark rum and lime and knock yourself out on Dark & Stormy.

I've also done the sushi type ginger, but getting the taste and texture right is hard. Needs some work.

>I'm also making a conscious effort to not think about problems I'm not going to be able to solve.

I think that is absolutely spot on!

I tell that to my kids (and wife) when they whine and yack about stuff. Focus on the stuff you're actually able to change.

>doing there

Dropping off the coffin as RC has found a way to beat the need for it.

Oh, and dropping off the horse carrige and putting in a bid on the excavator, because well, you kan never have enough of those.
