As some of you know, having aquired a taste while visiting Boston a good few years back, I love Sam Adams Boston Beer but being stuck in the UK have problems getting hold of the stuff. I like it so much I even bought shares in the company!

My local Waitrose and Sainsbury supermarkets used to stock it until around Christmas 06 but for whatever reason don't anymore. So my quest began to find anywhere else that stocked Sam. So far no good.

However while visiting Tesco's recently I discovered they now carry Brooklyn Lager- another gem of a beer I have had the good fortune to sample. I cleared the shelves in the Wokingham store last week.

I would invite all beer lovers to give these two wonderful products a try; you never know you might enjoy them.

And if anyone has any suggestions where I might get hold of Sam Adams beer here in the UK, please let me know.

Here's the official web sites:

Battlestar Geek

Gonna sound really sad now.

Having lost access to Sky a while back, I haven't been able to get my fix of season 3 of Battlestar Galactica.

So I've bought the Mini-Series plus seasons 1 and 2 cheaply on DVD with the intention of watching each and every episode in order. I'm halfway through season 1 and had forgotted just how good it is and what compelling drama it is.

Can't wait til season 3 drops through my letter box.

Entry for May 04, 2007

Have received something of a knock-back today.

Heard that my mum's liver has not responded to the treatment and although no worse is certainly not any better. Life is shit at times.

Just how I feel.
