Interestingly, no...and I'd like to keep it that way.

Nope, mine's digital, and that information would be "need to know" and nobody else really needs to know...and what is this you speak of? "People coming over for a drink?" Never heard of such a thing.

Nope...but I combine trips with other shopping, so I don't have to count the driving time.

Hell no...I've worked in bars for years, you couldn't pay me enough to deal with those types of employees.
