I am delighted to announce that Brian Robinson, aka Shabba (53?), joins me as co-author on this blog.
Brian and I have several things in common:-
1. We both love absinthe.
2. We have both spent a lot of time over the last two years debating the finer points of real absinthe with some .... "non-believers."
3. We both love rugby, a game that I, as a Brit, have grown up with and that Brian, unusually for an American, took to like a duck to a water. I just hope that other Americans do not take up this sport, one of the few (apart from marbles) that England can sometimes excel at.
Bearing all the above in mind, I am really looking forward to sharing this mission. Brian has a broader exposure to more absinthes than I. He also knows the USA scene far better than I do (yet). We haven't agreed a split of responsibilities here yet, but I feel we'll work together well as a team. Between us, we can cover many more issues, State-side and in Europe and Asia.
