I like Bill's take on it better. :)

PF 1901 is (or should be) 1901 vintage Pernod et Fils absinthe in the possesion of one TAB. JL1901 is his modern day take on it. I'm sure his lawyer already got an earful from Ricard-Pernod clarifying that subject.

Bill got it right... I'm just being goofy. However, it's good to know there's a safety hatch to exit from with this one, if needed.

Agreed SBM, sometimes we gotta do like radio guys, and keep it clean while still sending the message.

Some folks may cringe each time I use the term "Booze" regarding these high quality drinks.
I mean no offense. There are bottles of extraordinary booze out there. I've tasted a few. Relax.

Sorry Brian, I know the intention was not for people to dig through frivolous acronyms, to find the occational gem. RMGH is definitely used quite a bit, and hopefully get used next year.

Oh you suck, I was going back and forth between my post, and your quotation of it, and I couldn't find a difference. I was like :huh: and finally gave up feeling kinda :wacko: :unsure: :twitchsmile:

Not until I was looking through a new post list that I wondered who this new Bill fellow was. :) What you did to my mind, is biologically obscene. But kinda funny. :laugh:

You were right.

In the oil patch we use BFHs al the time, they are a very useful tool.

Back in the day I often used a BFH in combination with a bull prick (BP) to drive pins out of cat tracks. Please note this is a two person operation, as no man alive can handle a BFH and a BP at the same time.

I would imagine M1 tanks still use such advanced tools.

Two persons are also needed for using a BFH on threaded fasterners, a second person has to keep the hammer wrench in place with a rope or sling. Otherwise it is dangerous for the person wielding the BFH.

BC is Blues Cat.

HG is hausgemacht, which basically means homemade.

This glossary might be useful to have in this thread as well.

I read the hell outta that glossary when I first got here. :headbang:

The room it smelled heavy of drinkin',  

and the sad silent song, made the hour twice as long,

as I waited for that sun to go sinkin'.

Of course. Blues Cat. That sure was some fine booze.

Thanks Evan.
