mmmmmm Summer in New Zealand

Ah summer, hot days, sweaty nights and burnt feet from taking this picture. (The deck was hot!)
We just bought some outdoor furniture so we can enjoy eating dinner gazing out over the neighbourhood. Work is great at the moment, very quiet so I'm home by lunchtime most days. Things will get back to normal next week though.

Beer best from frozen glass!

Never pour beer into a frozen glass or pitcher. It causes four problems: 1) It freezes some of the beer; 2) It keeps most of the gas from being released from the beer, which leads to bloating and burping; 3) It robs the beer of its flavor (beer, like food, has less flavor at colder temperatures); and 4) it makes you look like a fool for causing the other three problems.

Well I disagree, a glass straight from the freezer looks cool and frosty. Besides, I can't detect the difference in taste.
