adds minerals including salt to its water. Doesn't salt just make you more thirsty?

"Into each life, some rain must fall"... thats how you refill the empty bottles, right?

I got used to paying big bucks for quality Mescal a while back.

The difference is the agave cactus is fire roasted rather than steamed for the cheaper tequila. Other than a rare glass of bourbon it's my choice for liquor.

Now if you want to discuss beer... good Guinness on tap is mother's milk but hard to find in the US. Pilsner Urquel is a favorite as well... cheap domestic that is often overlooked is Saranac pale ale.

Vodka isn't much more than low proof potato alcohol isn't it? I could never tell much of a difference in brands.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
