I was in to that for a while. Out of all the setups i tried eb and flow was easiest and least expensive.  If you're really adventurous look into Aquaponics.

Thanks for the advice. I am thinking of doing ebb and flow to begin with, and then working my way up to aquaponics at some point. There is a strawberry farmer nearby who does his whole crop that way who I will hit up for some tips.

Bought some Yellow Spot Irish Whiskey. Very good! I am not decided yet on whether it is worth the price, but it is indeed delicious.

I've been tempted.  But the Yellow is a bit pricier than the Green.  Green Spot is outstanding, so I have no doubt that Yellow Spot is as well.

How would you describe it?  Is it sweet?  Irish Whiskey's are too sweet for me these days, at least for a regular sip.

It is a little sweet. As far as a description: plum, a little bit of apple, and iodine. Even with a splash of water it is a little hot. I would say it is not as sweet as other Irish Whiskeys.

That Paul McCartney Christmas song (I don't know the name) makes me want to set fire to the earth.

I couldn't agree more! How do so many people cover it?



Yeah, brutal song. Sounds like a cheesy commercial jingle. Just gonna say it - 99% of Paul's solo stuff, not so good IMO.

Lots of mediocrity in the solo years.

This thread made me thing of something though. Neil Young. What is the deal? He is the most hit and miss musician in my life. Tons of great songs, and also some of the worst crap I have ever heard. Not a lot in the middle.

I was given a really nice grow light for Xmas, and was thinking about doing some sort of hydroponics, but seems like there are lots of different setups. Was really thinking of doing aeroponics, but am a little hesitant to do anything big. Anyone else got a system? What do you like about it? What don't you like about it?

And no, I am not growing weed. Just some herbs, greens, and hopefully a tomato and some peppers.

Top Hat, White Christmas, and This is Spinal Tap would be my picks.

I would like to brew again next year. Moving and injuries have put me off for about two years.

Not to pile on in regards to IPAs, but I like bitter beer. Burton ales really hit the spot for me here. None of this 100 ibus but somehow still tastes like a sweet pine tree commercial stuff.

I just bought the Coffey Grain, and have been enjoying it immensely.

Can't tell if he has a man bun - I'll assume he does until I see otherwise.   :)
Nah, it looks like curlyish hair, maybe a couple inches long.

That's the problem with the manbun. The hair looks totally normal from one point of view until it...just...looks...wrong.

Ho-ly cow!

I was lucky enough to go to game 5. 'Twas crazy.

What a great game though. I think this pushed me into full on hypertension. Go Cubs!

  You have to embrace your curse if you are ever going to beat it.


Maybe so.  :)   Hey, whatever it takes !

I might agree with you if the story of the curse were any good, like trading Babe Ruth. But the goat story has always been idiotic. I mean really, bringing your goat to a baseball game wasn't ok in the 1880s, why he thought it would be ok in 1945 is just so stupid that I cannot believe the story has stuck.

That sounds super tasty! We have been making homemade eggrolls lately, and jeez they are tasty! We will have to make some of this to go along.
