Beer is good for you!

There is no stronger tie between man and nature,

Than the one that resides in a keg of good beer,

The barley malt, rye and hops noble in stature

But thoughts are divided over which is most dear!

-The Poxy Boggards, Bring Us More Beer.

Beer is good for you. I'd like you to just say that slowly to yourself, let it sink in, then grab a bottle and drink yourself healthy while you read this article.

Beer is an excellent source of B vitamins (except for B12).

There are eight B vitamins

in total, and each of them has an important role to play in the human body. Lack of bee… uh I mean B vitamins can cause insomnia, dementia, sensitivity to sunlight, depression and an irregular heart beat. Conversly enough, excessive drinking can frequently cause insomnia, dementia, sensitivity to sunlight, depression and an irregular heart beat. You know what I mean. I've seen the pictures on the internet…

Either way, beer is a fantastic source of all but one of these vitamins- B12. B1 and B2 are also lacking, but are present. Two of these wonderful little vitamins are B-6 and B-3- Niacin and Pyridoxine to their friends. They are very helpful when trying to gain a good nights rest. The fact that in beer, you also get a nice hit of alcohol as well means that a pint before bed can help you sleep, and I can personally vouch for the truth in this.

Probably my second favourite love song.

This just came on my playlist, so I thought I'd share it with you. A rainy night in Soho, performed by the Pogues.

I've been loving you a long time
Down all the years, down all the days
And I've cried for all your troubles
Smiled at your funny little ways
We watched our friends grow up together
And we saw them as they fell
Some of them fell into Heaven
Some of them fell into Hell

I took shelter from a shower
And I stepped into your arms
On a rainy night in Soho
The wind was whistling all its charms
I sang you all my sorrows
You told me all your joys
Whatever happened to that old song
To all those little girls and boys

Now the song is nearly over
We may never find out what it means
But there's a light I hold before me
And you're the measure of my dreams
The measure of my dreams

Sometimes I wake up in the morning
The gingerlady by my bed
Covered in a cloak of silence
I hear you in my head
I'm not singing for the future
I'm not dreaming of the past
I'm not talking of the fist time
I never think about the last

Now the song is nearly over
We may never find out what it means
Still there's a light I hold before me
You're the measure of my dreams
The measure of my dreams

The song is under copyright (Shane McGowan). Lyrics sourced from here.

Currently drunk. Won another cash prize in a writing competition today. Check this out fans of mine. I'm proud. This is the second such competition I've been listed in on Xomba. Thanks to you all.

Stone's Yorkshire Bitter.

It's cheap, it tastes good, it comes in an orange can, and it's available in a shop that's three minutes down the road.

Is there anything bad about Stone's Yorkshire bitter? Probably not. It doesn't even give you a hangover.

So, here we go. The Blog Of Many Things.

What is the blog of many things? Well, the answer to that is simple. I couldn't decide what to make a blog about, so I decided to do it for everything! Every three days I'm going to put together a list of websites, blogs, articles and videos pertaining to a topic of my choice (Or your choice if you e-mail me suggestions). It's sort of like research and share.

Through this I hope to improve my own knowledge base and also create an interesting read for other people. So, here we go then. The blog of many things starts now, my first topic shall be....

Oh smeg, I forgot to choose a topic... Hmmm. How about beards? Yes that'll do. Time to get writing!
