[I picked up a bunch of crystal on the weekend, 45 and 120L.  They also had a 75L and I should have asked before but can I blend the 45/120 to make 75 or 90 or 105 or some other combination or are the characteristics of each such that they are all stand alone products?

The blending thing doesn't really work as they are different animals so your blend wouldn't be the same as, say, crystal 75L.  But, that said, go ahead and try it as you might like the result anyways.
For flavor, the blending doesn't really work as hokerer mentions.  But for color it does, so it depends on why you are using it and what flavors you like.

this would be a good name for a honey brown ale

I swear I'd sue you. ;)

Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

I don't know...Bear in Mind vs Bear Ass Brown.  Not that similar.  Maybe I'll come up with one called Mind my Bear Brown Ass....
