Happy 4th of July!
« on: July 04, 2010, 07:55:37 PM »
Just thought I'd send out a Happy 4th to all of the brewers out there. I hope all is well with everyone.

I had a great brewday yesterday...hit all of my numbers and I had a great BBQ today with plenty of Kolsch on tap.

The fireworks are sounding by the minute here as I type.

Cheers!

Thanks man...hope you (and all) had a great one.
And I share the same hope as brewballs

In line with the holiday celebrations, the following is so weird I have to share it:
On the way to a party I was listening to the radio (a NYC all news station) and they were featuring 4th related stories all day.

The most incredible one was describing a recent national poll (either Marist or AP...I forget which)  where respondents were asked to complete the following:
"On July 4, 1776, we declared our independence from________"

Incredibly, 25% of those polled evidently answered incorrectly (with "Mexico" , "Japan", "France", and "China" as frequent wrong answers).
I wonder what history teachers are covering these days instead of the American Revolution?

Nice description of the battle that apparently never ends.

I spent my 4th relaxing in  nice park like surroundings near a river in relative peace and quiet.
Thankful for friends and family.

Hail storm took out a chunk of my gardening efforts and I need to get the adjuster out to look at the roof
I see shingle gravel lying around now.

15 gallons of homebrew ended yesterday

MIGHT have a gallon of ESB in the keg
Also 9 gallons of Beergaritas!

ESB was on the engine and it was HOT yesterday, probably the only reason there is any left.

Hefeweizen went very quickly

It rained all day yesterday and today, but managed to brew 10 gallons of wheat today. Happy B-day to America. I hope you all had a great 4th and 5th.
