Well, I haven't gotten anything brewing-related. Yet.

But, I spent Christmas day at my brother's (and his wife's) house. He has been introduced to weak domestically-produced beers, and is not really impressed. I brought a bottle of home-brewed Mead, made by a co-worker's cousin. This Mead won first place at the Az State Fair. My brother's comment took a couple of seconds, while I was watching the smile spread across his face. "I LIKE this!"

Later that day, we had a gift-exchanging. He and his wife got a 2 case set of Cobalt blue stretch Hock wine bottles, to be filled with a soon to be started wine. (Or so I thought.) They are now getting a Mead recipe. Probably blackberry. (Sis-in-law is madly in love with Cobalt blue stuff, and I like the color, too.)

From them, I managed to get a rather whopping, amazing couple of gifts. $200 Wally-World GC. $100 Fry's Electronics GC. The Fry's GC will be spent on me repairing my (and their) computers. The Wal-Mart GC will be used to buy my SS turkey fryer, and other beer-related goodies.

Other Christmas goodies, a pay raise from the LHBS, as well as my other job. Also, the VA just increased my disability benefits. 3 raises in one month!

Thanks HB99. Did anyone else catch the post in there from our nice marine friend? Even though he's not around, he's still around.
