I got enough cash to get my MM3 with enough to kick more back to family projects.  In-Laws got me two beer travel books.  Indiana now has two brewery tour guides.  One published in 2009 and one in 2010.  A quick look through doesn't show significant differences in what they've covered.  They're both missing a number of breweries that have opened just this year, but that's to be expected.  I'm amazed that they found these, actually,  Oh, and they got me an unstated amount of whiskey soaked oak chips from their LHBS.  No clue how much or what the oak is like.  She left them at home and I'll get them when we see them next.

I still have an IOU from my in-Laws on a used port barrel.  We're waiting to move before taking that project on.

EDIT to add: Those books?  Both published in 2010.  June 15th and July 9.

Can you call Dick Tracy on it?

heck, i barely figured out how to set it.

Yes a very cool present. I love mine- it's over 30 years old and still works. And the unscrewing part freaked me out at first. ;)
