Don't worry, my wife has done that twice. It happens.
Locked herself out or locked you out? :)
Ok!   I was going to say "Hiked three miles to a neighbor's in boxers to get a spare key?"


OK!  I was going to say "your wife has Harley biker boots?"

She's done it to herself. The rest, I'm not talking  8)

Wanted: New football team in the city of Detroit.
Qualifications: Don't suck!
I'm not one to harp on blown calls, but the Lions lost that game last night due to very bad officiating by one back judge.
What did the zebras have to do with all the picks Stafford slung?   ::)

The Lions are a weird team for sure;  soooo much talent but wow are they undisciplined.  I think it starts with that punkass coach. 
I saw one go against the ravens, but there were several blown calls that went against the lions, I thought it was very one-sided.  That one non-call at the end was terrible.  If I was a lions fan I'd be pissed, but the league won't do anything about it.

Yeah, Stafford threw some picks and Calvin Johnson dropped some easy passes.  Lions should have won.  But they didn't.

I don't like using the refs as an excuse. The Lions should have won that game in spite of the refs. They had their opportunities and didn't take advantage.

On that note, I've never seen such blatantly obvious calls go uncalled like they did that night. There were 2 or 3 major calls that went against the Lions that were wrong. Only the Lions find a way to lose like that. I'm starting to believe in the curse.

I don't think I've seen anyone mention Eagle Rare. For the price, my favorite bourbon. Also, where are you finding Makers for 20 a bottle. It's easily 25-28 where I live. Taxes? Eagle Rare is 31 and much better than Makers IMHO.

The best part was as we were leaving, we overheard and older lady talking to her husband saying that she never wants to go to space now. Like it was every a real option  ;D

Not so far-fetched.  Who knows?  Maybe she's friends with Lady Gaga...

Space is the perfect place for Lady Gaga to perform. No air to carry that voice.  :P

Denver at home next Sunday night...should be a good one.  Too bad Welker may not play.

Don't say that! He's going to begin his miracle rehabilitation today and be better than ever by Sunday.

I saw it with my wife this weekend. Other than no story behind the whole movie, it was a great movie. The effects were awesome and I thought it was the best use of 3D that I have seen yet. It almost made my wife sick with all the hurling through space stuff.

Ingredients / Re: simcoe

Could it be a "terroir" kinda thing, like the onion/garlic perception of Summit?  I have gotten batches of Summit where that was overwhelming and others where it was non existent.  The explanation I have been given was that it depends on growth conditions.  Could it be the same kind of thing with Simcoe?

This might make sense except I believe Simcoe is a proprietary variety and only grown on one farm.
Simcoe is proprietary. It is grown on at least 3 farms according to the Hopunion Hop Variety Handbook. On a video, Vinnie Cilurzo sais he uses Simcoe differently (boil, dry hop, etc) depending on which farm it was grown on.

I don't have a "bow down" emoticon.  ;)

How can we know as consumers what farm ours was grown on? Are they all close to each other (same climate, similar soil, etc) or is one in Utah and the others in Washington?

FWIW quest4watneys, the machine I use (@ Meijer) states that its water is purified by RO.
Same with me.

See the first FAQ for the water I use.

I see all these say Automatic Temperature Correction. Does that mean it will read the same whether it's mash temps or room temp?

I've always heard that hop extract stays viable for years, longer than pellets would.
