So, yeah, it's 29F now, but milk is $1.99 and gas is $2.89.

That certainly makes it all worth while!

Not rubbing it in.  When one lives 2000 miles from the nearest continent one has a tendency to lose track of what everyone else is up to.  Just curious.  It's hard to imagine having to give up brewing due to cold weather...

If I want snowy peaks I drive up Mauna Kea or Mauna Loa.  Their peaks (nearly 14,000 ft.) got down to 25°F last night. We'll be getting our first snow soon.

All you people that want to meet dead people: you do know that you need to be dead to do this, right?

Nope, not necessary.  Just an experiment of the mind.

We all live all over the place... So what's the weather like where you are?

Me - 66⁰F - clear - cool breeze coming down off of Mauna Loa - sky full of stars - no moon till later.

Out in a lawn recliner on the lanai, a Torpedo in my left hand, wife-made lumpia in my right... yum!

I make fun of anyone who happens to be physically due south of me at the moment. People look at me funny when I get the compass out, though.

If you were a Scout you woudn't need a compass.

Is that where the lava can be seen over the roads and stuff. Is it still flowing?

I still like my Don Ho idea better. Come on man, Tiny Bubbles?

Yes, the lava is still flowing across the road and into the ocean in Puna.  It is back in Kalapana again.  This eruption has been going nonstop since 1/3/1986.

Those tiny bubbles in lava are called vesicles.

I just read that to my wife and she laughed...she said "Yes, Swabians like folks from Bamberg, because Bambergers don't think of themselves as Bavarians." (My wife is from Swabia...Stuttgart is her hometown)

The Kernel

My mother-in-law was from Stuttgart.  My wife and her twin brother were born there but moved to the US when they were 1 year old.  My father-in-law was a US soldier stationed in Germany.

My parents lived in Bad Aibling from 1980 to 1988.  It was then I got to visit Bavaria and pretty much all of Europe.  I loved Bad Aibling and Rosenheim and Munchen and... 

That's when I began learning about beer.  The local brewery was/is Schlossbrauerei Maxlrain

They inspired me to start brewing.  I could find nothing in the States at that time that compared.

Hey, you know what they say to Texicans in Alaska, "You better be nice or we'll cut our state in half, then you'll be the third largest state in the Union."

49th State on 1/3/59.

It's the same here on Hawaii Island.  I did not invent the name punatic. 
However taking a slur and turning it into a badge of honor sends a message.

I remember an incident at a homebrew compettion one time where the awards ceremony MC announced, "Those guys from Florida sure don't know much about first place."  Well, we made that our slogan and came back the next year and took nearly all of their first places and their coveted club cup too.

Kaimū as it was...



Kaimū was a small town in the Puna District on Island of Hawaiʻi that was completely destroyed by an eruptive flow of lava from the Kūpaʻianahā vent of the Kīlauea volcano in 1990. In Hawaiian, kai mū means "gathering [at the] sea" as to watch surfing. The lava flow that destroyed Kaimū and nearby Kalapana erupted from the southeast rift zone of Kīlauea.

I think Chekov said, "nuclear wassail." 

You know, was sail, but converted to nuclear power...

Certainly a favorite in the Star Trek movie series!

Was Catherine Hicks hot in those tight sweaters, or what?

Whats was interesting tonight; we had steamed green fresh chick peas. Very good.If I had to describe them I would place them somewhere between edamame and boiled peanuts.Which are two of my favorite snacks. These are going on the top of my snack list too.

Also made the Goan classic pork vindaloo. A nice raita of cucumbers, carrot, onion, cilantro  and a dash of coconut milk. I used heavy kefir instead of yogurt. (Most likely not authentic but worked just the same). Im not sure if Indians use kefir.

Another treat with the meal tonight was the Coconut podi. It is a batter of rice flour and yeast left to ferment a few days.I started it on Thur..Then tonight thinned it out with coconut milk before putting it to the pan.


Amazing turkey leftover ideas Cap!  Yum!   :D

In Bayern geh'n die Uhren anders.

"In Bavaria the clocks go differently." (run backwards)

The rest of Germany (to the north) look on Bavarians as being backwards.  A fact Bavarians are proud of.
