I was being facetious.  I learned to sail in a Sunfish on Lake Eloise in Winter Haven, FL in 1966.  I was 11 years old.   Put many a mile under sail since.

(got my eye on a Hobie Wildcat)

If I wasn't so blasted landlocked...I would love to sail!  I think I must have some latent Viking strain in me somewhere...to quote Wodehouse, "I yearn for the tang of salt breezes".

Brewing at sea would definitely be interesting, but it sounds a bit difficult!!! 

Sailboats only work on salt water?

My wife and son just returned from the mainland.  We have a welcome home aloha tradition - big time Saxer family comfort food - baked macaroni, cheese and cubed ham casserole.  Corn nibblets on the side and a squirt of ketchup on the macaroni.

Simple pleasures are the best!  I've been eatin' this since I was knee-high to a grasshopper.

Shouldn't they be brewing this stuff on an island off of Costa Rica?  I mean, what might happen if those yeasties got loose?

Wise decision, grasshopper.  A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

Kosher salt. Good lord I LOVE this stuff!!! Why didI just now find it? I takes just so little, and makes the food pop in a way regular table salt doesn't, without being "salty". I just LOVE this stuff!!!!

It was always on the shelf, right there next to the chipoltle Tabasco... ;)

I just roll out a golf ball size piece of dough and then put it in the tortilla press. It will be the same if you roll it out. You can make really big flour tortillas but the corn is less resilient. Best to keep them small.

If one does not have a tortilla press (they don't have them even in GERMANY, which is where they usually have everything) can one use a rolling pin and/or an astrophysics textbook?

I've had luck using my Fluid Mechanics/Hydraulics textbook.  I can control and apply the pressure evenly.

No decent beer than  I drink vodka or water.

Milwaukees Best Light is very nearly vodka and water.  Just with a hint of corn flavor.

I guess "how low can I go" might be best measured by my willingness to try to save a double IPA that developed a strange, unexpected pellicle in secondary.  Flavor was still fine, so I racked it out and kegged it immediately, at low temperature.

Perhaps you had too much Milwaukee's Best Light and brewed a Grand Cru instead of a double IPA by accident?   ;)

I'm going on a three day ice fishing trip mid Feb, and I plan on taking a case of Milwaukee's Best Light!!!! (pics to come)

That's some pretty severe punishment!  What did you do wrong?

Oh and weaz...I fixed the title for ya.  ;)

If that's okay by you.  8)

My son and I have fun at my wife's expense - she's a Jersey Tomato and pronounces it, "Jumbo lie-ah."

So my son and I say, "It's not small lie-ah, it's not medium lie-ah, it's not large lie-ah, it's JUMBO lie-ah!"  

This is what I always think of when I hear Jambalaya.

Well, we're having shrimp étouffée and fried bell pepper rings instead of jambalaya, crawfish pie, and filé gumbo tonight, but we got the guitar (slack key kine) and fruit jar covered.

Goodbye Joe me gotta go pole da pirogue down da bayou...

The rice is off white.

He was stuck on her like off-white on rice? 

I don't think so... It doesn't work.
