The nice thing about the Irish and their Guinness is that it is quite okay to be having one any time of the day (or morning). So keeping a buzz on is easy. The problem is that it is soooo filling. I walk around all day feeling like I just finished a heavy meal.
And these Guinness carbs are showing up on the Irish. They may be famous for their famine, but there are no signs of it here today. Everyone here would fit in just fine with their overweight American cousin at the Walmart or McDonalds.
