We have quite a few new people that I don't "know" that well at all.

I thought it would be fun for each person, both newer and long-time, to give a one sentence description of yourself telling us something that many of us would not know about you.

Nothing gross (please!) or too serious but just a simple "few people know this but I ......." statement.

I think I'm an open book, so I don't have much that is new or interesting to say. The only thing I have that some of you may not know is that I have another grandson coming, due this summer. I'm a grandma already, of a nearly 3-year-old boy, so this will be my second.

How about you?

You may not know this about me but...

I thought Yooper was already a moderator since she's everywhere and always seems to have the right advice.
I live in CT, my wife is a Veterinarian and I have a 4 year old son.
I have lived in Nebraska, Iowa, Maryland, Tennessee, North Carolina, Ohio, and Michigan before I came to New England.

I work in retail and cannot believe how inconsiderate shoppers are - what a mess they make.
I found HBT 1 month after starting my brewing.
I also live in New England. Rhode Island. I was born in Indiana, lived in Massachusetts, New York, Florida, Connecticut, back to Florida, U.S. Virgin Islands, Back to Florida then Rhode Island.
I just got a KIA Soul and love it.
I didn't do much brewing when it was very cold and my pipeline is almost empty - brewday will be Tuesday - a Cream Ale
I also love nature photography.

You may not know...

That Im almost 40... that after a first marriage of 10 years, I finally found true love with a beautiful person... that even after all these years I still live less than 10 miles from where I was born... that I really dont like dogs even though most people treat them like family... that for some reason I do not enjoy projects around the house, but for some reason I cant get enough of beer related projects!

I don't know about stuff I haven't said or is relatively relevant. But I'd broken both of my arms, one of my collar bones, had surgery on my hip cause of slipping disc, and several other fun injuries.

I'm also really talented at baking and have made several things that people have said tasted awesome, but I 100% lack the finesse to be a baker cause they all look terrible.

Some things I've made that aren't the ugliest

Indeed, she already was a moderator. She just recently got "promoted" to administrator.

As for me, my left forearm is about a half inch shorter than my right as a result of an injury when in was five.

When I was 12, I was in a boys choir (oh, here come the molestation jokes), and performed at Notre Dame cathedral in front of 4,000 people, did a full mass to a standing ovation, made the Bishop cry in joy.

Rest of my life sucked until I had my twins seven years ago, and learned to brew when I moved to CO!

I just got 2 questions for you.

1) Why am I here?

2) What is the meaning of life?

1) Because you were born.

2) Whatever you decide it is. Just because life has no meaning, it doesn't mean that it has no meaning.
