Haardrada, I hope Stevie wished you Happy Birthday.
‘appy (belated) burf-day Haardrada.
So, you just missed the Aquarius star sign. (Aquarius = the water-bearer...which might explain my addiction to wicked-strength cider... 🍺🤪 )
I'm believed to be in the cusp between Aquarius and Pisces.... And show traits belonging to both signs (supposedly 😁).
What I do find funny is that my Birthday is apparently the feast day of St Matthias... the Patron Saint of reformed alcoholics! This is quite apt as I used to drink like a fish and Lagers, Beers and Ciders of great strength. I was particular fond of "Snakebite" laced with Pernod & Blackcurrant....I received a good kicking one night and never felt a thing until the drink wore off the following morning. I had tripped over a low wall persuing one of the larger group that had picked on us and was seen lieing on the ground laughing at the lads hitting me.That's when I was a young scallywag...
BTW... I have done Pear cider... with no success... but I didn't use fresh pears... just juice.
On the other hand... One the guys here did make an excellent Pear Wine (11.5%) using fresh fruit... one of his neighbors has a tree or two. Though his fig wine also turned out great... so maybe he just knows what he is doing... (though his watermelon and his blueberry batches were awful...Don't ask me about my banana!)
