Meals with Midgi: Homemade is definitely better

It is mid-August, and the rainy season in Juneau is well underway. Truthfully, it's always rainy season in Juneau. We live in a rainforest. If rain is in the name of the area in which you live, chances are you're going to get rain. Southeast Alaska gets an abundance of the wet stuff, and I love it. Unlike many of my friends who live here, I really do enjoy the rain. I enjoy the cool, fresh air. I enjoy the blanket of clouds that dance in and out of the evergreen trees. I even enjoy the foggy days. It's like a treasure hunt to me. Fog reminds me of mystery and romance and hidden treasures or secrets. It tells its own story.

When's the last time you've been cut off or even thrown out of a bar? Have you ever been denied entrance into an establishment because a bouncer or one of the staff felt that you were too intoxicated to enter? Have you ever been turned down from buying liquor at a grog shop because you were underage? Back in my early drinking days, when I did more firing for effect than drinking good craft beer for the flavor, those events earned me bragging rights.
