We have about 16" right now with another forecasted 12" to come. The drifts are several feet and piling. My Labrador loves the snow...

I am planning to head out and start snowblowing very soon.

Here's the lunch we had at the Vietnemese restaurant "Thang Long" last week in Philly. Capp knows good food when he experiences it. The food was very good. Good "stick to ribs" cuisine.



Next door to the restaurant is a place that has live chickens and ducks that can be purchased fresh killed.  :o They have them all on display in cages.

Hey no fair!  All you flatlanders getting all the snow and you don't even know how to deal with it! 

We could use a few yards of snow up here!   ;D

Sure we do. A gallon of milk, a loaf of bread, a dozen eggs and beer.  ;D

What more can one ask.  ;)

No, we head out on the town. It was "Pho" last week again. Good stuff. I'll post a pic later.

Ah, Cap's turning into a shock jock type. Next up - grubs on a bed of lettuce, with a mango salsa. Chocolate ant covered cupcakes for desert. Chicha for a refreshing drink.

I hope not.  :-\

It started here ay 3:30pm. The latest snowfall estimate here is 25".  :o

West Virginia and Maryland both declared a state of emergency.

I just pitched the yeast into my ESB. All is well.

Well I'm noticing the aforementioned attenuation issue with my first generation.  I made a 10 gallon batch, one fermenter got S-33 and the other got 1450.  The S-33 finished at 1.014, the 1450 at 1.024.   ???

I kegged a batch yesterday that was made with first gen 1450.  Went from 1.059 to 1.010 in 3 1/2 weeks at 62-63F.  That's about 83% AA.

What syle beer did you make? What mash temp?

Victor Wooten is the man.  He might only be 4'9" (exageration) but man can he thump a bass.  I have seen him solo also and he will do some ridiculous things, like tune down his bass mid song without missing a note, then tune it back up before the song is over.  Talk about hands flying all over the place......Crazy.

He has ultimate and extreme control over his instrument AND it appears as though he does it effortlessly.

My taste for fusion was only recently really sparked.  A friend of mine is really into Bela Fleck though.

Here's one from Weather Report:

Something to play while cold crashing a beer:
Vaughan Williams - Sinfonia Antartica

Love Jaco's funky fusion bass lines in Palladium.

I'm taking a half today, Ron.  I know your brewing an ESB today, I may do my Dortmunder today or wait until the snow is up to my a$$ tomorrow.;D  The generator is primed an ready, the snowblower as well and I have an Ofest and wee heavy on tap.  The pantry and freezer are full.  Bring it on! ;D

A little snow never stopped me before, so why start stopping now.  ;D
