Tweaked it a few times and by the 3rd or 4th batch it was pretty good; 6th batch onward was awesome. Had the basic home kit. Sold it when I moved.

that's cool! i had a homebrew kit but i couldn't use it due to the ambient temps where i am. my uncle grows grapes on about 5 acres in central washington and makes a really nice pinot noir. he had to drink a bunch of wine to get those bottles too

I've been thinking about it. Now that I have usable garage space, I might give it a whirl. The problem is, there are so many micro breweries around here that I have to try all of their beers first.

these days the only thing that slakes my thirst is Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. it's perfect: substantial but you don't have to chew it, hoppy but not crazy sharp, not too sweet.

So I didn't buy this.













I didn't trade for this.












Hell, I only mentioned my desire to climb through a wormhole and onto the beach -- and then ACE FACE , homie extraordinaire , the first person I ever traded with, just randomly, out of the kindness of his heart, sends these along for the journey. Seriously. Have you ever heard of something so great? A homie so awesome? The sound of the old memories colliding with the new? I mean: Seriously. Seriously. Seriously. shog[1].gifbiggrin.gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Dude, this made my month.

EPISODE THREE: SPOO POKER




Wait, what is this? What am I looking at, here? Well, casual thread readers may not know this, but there is a man behind the scenes -- he doesn't post too often -- his knowledge and dedication and general large-heartedness are present in effing spades, but rarely glimpsed here -- there is a man here (some of you may have heard of him) by the name of "SpooPoker" -- and man, man. Let me tell you...

This guy, man. This guy.

First, let me just tell you how how he made all my Miami Vice dreams come true (or perhaps I'll just show you):

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

That, my friends, was the unmitigated tits, enough joy to fill a man's heart for a lifetime.

But when has Spoo ever stopped at that?

So the sun sets. The lights turn off. I pack, and I go home. And my dream, like the waves, begins to recede...







But what is a wave but something that returns -- that creates a void only to fill it?


LOOK AT THIS SHINING RELIC OF THE 1980s!


Where was it? Oh...waiting in the mail.

Why does it look different than one from the one I used to wear? Oh...right. Because Spoo sent not only that one -- (honestly, this brought tears to my eyes) -- but like, EVEN MORE SHINY RELICS TO WARM THE HEARTS OF MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY!.

Again: Seriously. What? Who is that awesome?

That's the Moms up there rocking that watch to work, where she reports it drew glances like magnets and raised eyebrows like it was fairly yanking on them. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif


In summary:


OH! SHIT!


Thank you guys. I love you guys. You guys are seriously the best. happy.gif









THANKS, AND PLEASE STAY TUNED FOR EPISODE FOUR: MY MAIN MAN AND THE TIE OF DESTINY. I LOVE YOU, BROS. YOU BRING SWAG TO MY LIMBS AND TEARS TO MY EYES.

That was me in my mid-20s. I like to think my taste is more refined these days. And my friendly neighborhood brewery (Upslope) is a 25 minute walk from home and has amazing beer.

A good friend of mine, who runs a small car painting business. has helped me a lot. he has let me park my car at his Garage and work on it at my leisure, and is doing some paint work in exchange for English lessons so he can keep up with his daughter who is learning English. he is a nice dude, who simply lives his trade and is a single dad.

The reason i am telling you this is, his daughter has been in hospital for 3 weeks now, and will be having an operation next month. something related to fluid leaking from around her brain. serious but fixable. and she is a smart girl with a bright future. he works day and night, and can only see her perhaps once a week.

I would like to give him a nice blazer or 2. so he can put on something clean and fresh when he goes to see her. all his clothes have paint on them or grease,etc.

All i'm asking is if any of you have fodder floating about, that is casual tidy for a blue collar guy,(size 40-41) from a nice make with a good fabric content?

Will you sell it to me at cost + postage?  or i would be willing to trade one of my own Watches for something nice.

i like to think they would both enjoy it if he got to clean up for his visits to the hospital.

you guys know what i mean. he has been so kind, and it is all i can do. Help me out?

I have two blazers that aren't spoken for but they are too big (44 and 48) I wish I could help!
