    I've been discovering a whole new world of tasty delights, many produced locally. No sweet stuff for me, I LOVE the tart dry ciders and there are some great small-batch craft varieties readily available from your specialty liquor shop. I started out with the more mainstream Woodchuck Granny Smith and since have developed a yearning palate for offerings from Boxborough-based Pony Shack (Fifer's Dream), Leominster-based Stormalong (Legendary Dry) and Everett-based Artifact (May We Have Your Attention Please). Also have enjoyed dry ciders from Stowe (Vermont) and the Anxo varieties from the Washington, D.C. region.

    This stuff goes great with meals and has just the right alcohol content (mostly 6-6.9 percent). What's best is the dry ciders are non-filling with practically zero sugar and carbs, flavored by special apples cultivated specifically for cider making. Some, like the aforementioned Artifact, mix in black currants, blueberries, raspberries, etc. It's bubbly like beer but that's where comparison mostly stops, although some cider makers rather inadvisedly (IMO) add hops to certain varieties. Give me dry cider and I'll be happy never drinking beer again.

    I found a great speciality shop in Westford that has a whole wall of ciders (including imports) that lets you buy singles, which is a great way to whittle things down to a few favorites. I'd like to compare notes with anyone else exploring this stuff.

    The place I’m getting married at makes their own ciders. I’ve liked most of them but their noble cider is probably my favorite...

    Not yet. Getting to work on that after the honeymoon. 1/11. Easy anniversary to remember.

    Hopefully the Patriots will get the Sunday game. If not, I’ll find a way to follow it. Never underestimate a millennial and his technology.

    Yeah, you'll have a hidden earpiece listening to the game as you exchange vows.

    The minister: "Do you, Kontra, take this woman as your lawfully wedded wife?"
    Radio: " ... and Brady is sacked!"
    Kontra: "Oh goddamit, why?!"
    Bride: "WTF?!"
