    RELATIONSHIP STATUS: married for 6 years.

    WHERE ARE YOU FROM? I was born in Delaware.  We moved a lot as a kid.  Now live in CO

    WHERE IS YOUR SO FROM?  Long Island, NY.   

    WHAT DO YOU DO FOR WORK? I work in hospitality industry.  Plus part-time at a golf club.

    AND YOUR SO? exec Chef
    ANY KIDS? Nope.  No plans either.

    PETS?  2 dogs. One english bulldog.  One rescue. 

    WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE CHEESE? Brie

    FAVORITE DRINK (boozy or not):  Yuengling is my favorite alcohol.  But I do not get it here, so I drink other beers (mostly larger style) or red wine.   Chocolate milk is my favorite non-alcoholic drink.

    ANYTHING ELSE? When I started here I was living in the islands.   Then I've moved 3 times since then.   I'm on the older scale of age for this place.  I thinks it's important to not to have the blind leading the blind and  different points of view.  So that is why I stick around.  Plus I love most of the people around here.
    Yeungling is my favorite lager, hands down. It always sucks when we travel and can't get it. Can you get it shipped to you out there?

    no.  but there is a restaurant in Glenwood Springs (30 miles away) that sells it.  It's on the down low, meaning it's not on the menu.  I'm not sure how they get it here, but when I go to GWS I stop buy.


    Ummm, I'm not asking tomorrow.   Maybe a trip to GWS is in order?

    WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE CHEESE? Mmm cheese... I'm a sucker for some sharp cheddar but I'll take just about anything covered in warm, melty cheese

    FAVORITE DRINK (boozy or not): Non booze: ginger ale or flavored lemonade (like raspberry or mango lemonade) Booze: amaretto sours or sangria 

    ANYTHING ELSE?

    Our next Knotcation (after the NNY boozy bus and the cruise) should clearly be France so we can all eat really good double-creme brie together, straight from the source.
    I'm in.

    Yes, I think you need to take a trip to get some Yeungling.

    When we gave our headcount to the caterer, he tried to reduce our alcohol order - including the beer. We were insistent that we NEEDED 3 cases of Yeungling to go with the 2 cases of Guinness, 2 cases of Guinness Black Lager and case of Coors Light. He was surprised that our small guest list polished all of it off save for a handful of bottles (along with a dozen litres of wine, 7 litres of mead, and a dozen litres of hard liquor). We weren't!

    Um.. What channel is Outlander on? And I hope you make a beautiful library with all those books, lady. That's my dream! @garnetandgold60
    Stars in the US, Showcase in Canada, though if you live in my house, it's on wherever DH steals it from on the internet cos I'm not waiting 3 extra fucking weeks for Showcase to air it behind the US.  They've played the first 8 episodes I believe, and the second half of season 1 starts in January.

    RELATIONSHIP STATUS: Married

    WHERE ARE YOU FROM? South Africa

    WHERE IS YOUR SO FROM? Also South Africa (and kinda Lesotho)

    WHAT DO YOU DO FOR WORK? I am currently unemployed, but I'm a writer-type.

    AND YOUR SO? IT for an aviation company. 

    ANY KIDS? Nope. I don't want any, DH doesn't want any, my lady bits... they're trying to convince us otherwise. 

    PETS? We have two cats who unfortunately can't live with us in our current apartment (they're with the ILs). 

    WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE CHEESE? I am totally unable to pick a favourite ANYTHING when it comes to food and drink. But right now I guess I'd say Camembert?

    FAVORITE DRINK (boozy or not): Pineapple juice. I have a total thing for pineapple juice, but it's impossible to get here (totally stupid considering we're only 4 hours away from pineapple country). I'm also a Cosmo girl, and an ABC girl - Anything But Chardonnay!

    ANYTHING ELSE? I'm an ink-addict. I HATE peas and pretty much all legumes, but love all other green veg. I have never been out of South Africa, but I desperately want to tour Scandinavia. I'd also like to visit Japan, but Scandinavia's my bucket list. I'm working on 3 books, a webserial, and a comic at the moment, because manic episodes are a bitch! I'm a Whovian, though I'm having more than a little trouble with the Capaldi era (love Capaldi, the stories are just... eh). David Tennant is my "freebie". And I have memorized most of Eddie Izzard's material, because the man is a genius and a legend, and I sincerely hope that he wins the London mayoral elections in 2020.

    WHERE ARE YOU FROM? Central New York

    WHERE IS YOUR SO FROM? Massachusetts

    WHAT DO YOU DO FOR WORK? I'm an Web Developer for a Dairy Cooperative

    AND YOUR SO? Diesel Mechanic & Volunteer Fire Fighter

    ANY KIDS? Not yet

    PETS? A cat named Chloe who knows she is queen of the castle.

    WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE CHEESE? I work for a Dairy company, this is a difficult question. I'd say blue cheese is one of my favorites

    FAVORITE DRINK (boozy or not): Dr Pepper, Sea breeze

    ANYTHING ELSE? Working for a dairy company is the BEST. We do a lot of work with a yogurt company so they send us FREE YOGURT like once a month. Also in addition to a cash money Christmas bonus, we get what I fondly call "Christmas Cheese". It's a good size block of cheddar cheese that is great for Mac & Cheese. Also there are other occasions were we have ice cream, milk, yogurt or other varieties of cheeses in the break room. I love dairy! :-)
    Do you work for or with Hoogwegt?  Ever heard of them?  They are a dairy trader in IL.
    I hadn't heard of Hoogwegt before so I googled. I don't *think* we are affiliated. My North East only cooperative was acquired in April by a national one so I don't know all the ins and outs of the new parent company. Basically we work directly with the farms to get their milk from their farm to a place where it can be made into products, like CHEESE. And ice cream. And yogurt.
    I love co-op businesses.  I am a volunteer for Food Shed Co-op, a cooperatively owned grocery store we are trying to open in my county!

    Was your buyer a national co-op or a traditional corporation?

    We were bought out by a national co-op who we were already partners and doing business with. The farmers own equity in the company. We also have more ventures than just moving milk to plants, we own some plants, have contracts to bottle products like those Starbucks frappuccinos and we started doing some international business within the last year selling milk in juice box cartons that do not need to be refrigerated until it's opened.

    ANYTHING ELSE? I found my way here after being super annoyed by a bride-friend I was a BM for, who wanted all wedding party and guests to camp out in the field the reception was to be held in. it was a BYO-tent event. Or, it would have been had the groom remembered to pay the deposit, and then the venue closed (owners retired) so no camping. They also wanted the bridal party to do a line dance at the reception. I needed to hear other people's horror stories. I haven't been let down.
