Spent a few hours on the road this weekend and heard VH's Beautiful Girls a few times and my wife and I kept doing the beer ad. 

I make five dollars a day and a beer costs a nickel,
so I ask the bartender how much for a pickle?
And as he gives his mustache a tickle,
says “a pickle’s a nickle, Mr. Van Syckle”
Loving the VH Beautiful girls reference, lost in the rest of it, but all my bills are paid, I got it made in the shade, and all I nnnnneed is a beautiful girl, ah ah beautiful girl, beautiful girl

This guy is smiling because he knows what it is.

Was this shot from the world beard championships? They actually had a short lived TV show based on that championship, ridiculous

I did a double take on this thinking it was spam (I make $200K a year placing tiny classified ads)

I have done 2 in a day several times this year, but concurrently with multiple tuns and kettles. Did the back to back thing once and that was enough of that. would not want to try 2 let alone 3 with just 1 kettle. Good luck and have fun with it

Last weekend while in Spokane, I tried McCallan 12.  Seriously good.  Will get a bottle ~$50 after payday.
Love that stuff. Bought some around the holidays last year and the gift box came with a smallish sample (1.25 Oz maybe) of their 18. Unbelievable, but not getting a bottle of that anytime soon at the prices it goes for

This morning's loaf:

Was glad to see it was just bread...

LOL. Had to look up the slang meaning.

The e-mail notifications come through without images.  I was like "WTF?"  But then I remembered.  Bread.
Pretty funny $#!+ Joe

That's a great testimonial weazeltoe. No physical gifts for me, but was not expecting any either. The knowledge I have gained here easily outweighs any gained through books or from other brewers(read LHBS employees) I have said it before, that I am not certain that I would still be brewing 3+ years after starting if I had not found this forum. Everyone ere is so helpful and generous with their knowledge, it is truly remarkable. I don't have much experience with any other online forum, on any topic, so I have just always felt that that's how other forums work. A quick look elsewhere for brewing or other topics of interest have shown me that this forum and these members are in a class all their own. A very big thanks goes out to all share endlessly here, you have provided a wealth of knowledge to me and everyone else who comes here for help.

I think Frank was referring to hops harvested, but not used in the boil or whirlpool, not saving those already used for dry hopping later. Those will be a mess and you wont know what they will bring to the table. If you harvest 3#, you could then use your 1.5#( that you dried while the beer was fermenting) during whirlpool and the other 1.5# to dry hop, at least if I understand his post correctly

My 5.5-6 gallon batches with batch sparge are usually 5-6 hours from flame on to cleaned up afterwards. I do measure out and portion grain, hops, and water treatment chemicals the night before. I usually mill while strike water is heating. I am not usually in a rush, so I am happy with my time frame
