    I remember when my wife used to like getting cherry peppers with her steak at Brown Derby by
    the airport in Cleveland.

    I'm still pretty new to homebrewing, but am considering a vanilla porter for the winter. Are

I have to admit this time of year is really starting to suck out loud. They always wait til Thanksgiving time to fuck me outta my last dime. This year is the worst ever. We got no tree,I know I'm not getting any gifts,had to shop at the cheapy store to get the kids something at least. Which is hard cause they're all grown. I got no beer ready,so nothing to drink. No cigs,no vodka,no bourbon...none of the usual. WE only have italian sausage to go with spaghetti tonight because of the food bank. There's no pity for a broke retiree. No $$ till 12/31,which does nothing about right now.
