    Beer Clings: Keg wrap--- anyone got one?

    I clicked an ad on the sidebar and fell in love with the idea of these keg wraps. Anyone got one? I can't seem to find a review anywhere. http://www.beerclings.com/index.php?route=common/home

    Made 3 batches of mead this morning.

    The things that this forum's ads cough up

    http://www.antipoleez.com/ (Warning--- site autoloads a youtube clip at high volume) :rolleyes: Great-- the banner ad said 'No one will know you've been drinking' (except maybe the slurred speech and the limited motor coordination). Oh--- the smell! terrific-- breath mints to cover...

    Santize and seal posts on stored Kegs

    So SWMBO got a little squirrley one day when I wiped the gas and liquid posts and popped in in the kegerator. She got it in her head that the fact that the cellared kegs had nothing covering the post that there was a significant risk of ending up with some guest killing bug in the beer from the...

    Raven Software announces Singularity

    At least 2 people asked me at various times what I was working on at Raven and as yet I've been unable to say anything. Now that's changed. I am working on Singularity right now, although over the past 2 years I've worked on all 3 projects we have going on in house. And all I can tell...

    I like this article: The customer is NOT always right.

    http://www.violentacres.com/archives/59/two-phrases-that-destroyed-american-culture?1 Snip/ The phrase ‘The Customer is Always Right’ is the single worst philosophy that has ever been adopted by American culture. It gave an entire generation of people the green light to be as impolite...

    Paper delivery thoughts

    So I saw this article and that got me thinking about my early days as a paperboy--- getting up early, taking care of the various customers in their various ways, being frugal with materials, knowing the value of my money. I really learned a lot as a paperboy and those lessons served me well...

    John Adams Mini series

    Now I'm no historian but I consider myself reasonably well read and middlin' average in my understanding of history. That being said, I am finding HBO's new mini series about John Adams and the American Revolution to be exceptionally well done. Paul Giamatti portrays a tormented man who...

    Picture of the new Sam Adams glass

    http://www.boston.com/ae/food/articles/2007/06/20/with_new_design_foam_follows_function/ I wonder what it looks like. Also I wonder if that 'nucleation site lasered into the bottom for increased hop aroma release' also 'just happens' to cause the beer to go flat faster, thus encouraging folks...

    Graduation and petty dictatorial bull

    Lately every time I read about one of these petty little diploma squabbles I can't help but wonder if you need to have been the kid everyione picked on in high school to be the principle. http://www.cnn.com/2007/EDUCATION/06/05/graduation.decorum.ap/index.html We did all kinds of stuff at...
