    Today is the first anniversary of the death of my dear wife of 46 years, Marie. If I were to
    say I've shed no tears today, that would be a lie. But I had an "epiphany" a couple of weeks

    This time of Thanksgiving, Advent and Christmas has quickly become a very bittersweet time for

    the food w...

    Brewers and Brewerettes...Over my time brewing beer, I have found it impossible to dispose of
    or recycle perfectly good pop-top beer bottles. And, as many brewers do, I purchase commercial

    When my parents built their house, my Dad had a toilet plumbed in the basement, so he wouldn't
