Reader JD asks: “Are you going to do your Favorite Things post every year from now on? There was some really cool stuff there.”
What I might do is post links to Favorites #1 and #2, and create addenda to said lists — just not as many, because I don’t see that much stuff that I like anyway, nowadays. (The aforementioned lists were created from untold links collected, and also a few purchases made, over many years of Intarwebz drooling.)
Unsurprisingly, my tastes don’t change that much, so few if any of the things will fall out of favor or be replaced by some new flavor-of-the-month item. (This may not apply to cars, because I fall in live with different models at different times as often as I fall in love with different redheads and/or old rifles.) On most things, I’m fairly set in my ways; yeah, I know, you’re all shocked — shocked! at that.
Another Reader asked why single malt Scotches were conspicuous by their absence from the lists. I dunno; maybe it’s because I’ve settled on an “everyday” single (Glen Morangie) and see little incentive to change that — unless someone in a bar / barman suggests something else to try, in which case, sure. I might give some of the new Japanese whiskies a shot (or two), just as soon as I can afford them.
Sorry, I appear to have wandered off topic and into the wilderness here, but that’s often how it goes, these days.
