    My bar project

    Hey all, Haven't been around in a while, but still brewing on a regular basis. Just too busy to hang out on the boards these days. I figured I'd share my latest project - my new bar. The whole thing took me about 6 months working in my spare time and on weekends. Started with a blank...

    Changing Jobs?

    So, I had a rather exciting development in my rather boring life this week. I’ve been thinking of starting to look for a new job as my current one has come up short in several ways. I like the work I do, but the company hasn’t been doing well. That means, very little in the way of raises over...

    Anyone see it opening weekend? I went on Friday and it didn't disappoint. I’m a fan of most super hero movies and I’d rate this one as the best I’ve seen so far. Robert Downey Jr. was PERFECT as Tony Stark. The CGI was incredible and the story moved along nicely. If you haven’t seen it...

    Now THIS is a super-geek site

    You've got to respect the work that went into this. It's basically a comparison of the sizes of things in various sci-fi worlds. Check it out!

    For those of you that get the History channel, I HIGHLY recommend Gangland. It's a series that takes you inside all sorts of gangs. You see the organizational structure, their beginnings and the lives of some of their members. It's really a fascinating show - especially nice in HD.

    SNIZZLE Tasting / Brew outing (Illinois Brewers)

    In another thread, we discussed getting together for a tasting and probably a group brew. Right now, we're targeting Friday, January 11th. The location is still in question, but it will be in the Naperville / Plainfield area. Anyone interested?

    Best Christmas Present...

    As a counter-point to the worst thread, what were some of the best things you ever got for Christmas? When I was 11, my Dad and Step Mom got me a bow and arrow, a BB gun and a dart board. At the time, I don't think you could have given me ANYTHING that I would have thought was cooler.

    Worst Christmas Presents...

    Everyone gets bad gifts every once in a while. What are some of the worst ones that have ended up under the tree with your name on the tag? And, if you were the person that gave a bad gift, what did you give and to who? When I was in my mid twenties, my sister gave me a blue jean vest. I...

    Favorite Christmas Movie / Special???

    For those of you that actually LIKE the holiday season, what's you favorite movie and / or Christmas Special? My favorite Christmas Movie is "A Christmas Story". It's just a classic. As far as specials go, I like "How the Grinch Stole Christmas".

    My basement - a work in progress

    Since I love seeing everyone else show off their work, I thought I'd share mine. I finished framing and rough drywall. Here are a few shots. Looking out to the patio. Future bar area on the left and a shelf and a couple stools in that narrow hall. Kind of an odd spot, but didn't want to...

    SWMBO is gonna have a fit!

    Ok, so I met a buddy and had a few beers a lunch. Good time and kicked his ass at Golden Tees. Having a little bit of a buzz and internet access seems to be my Achilles Heel. God damn Northern Brewer for offering 5.99 shipping on EVERYTHING! I ordered… 2 wine kits A March Pump A bunch...

    Anyone watching Cavemen?

    My GOD - as bad as I thought this show could be, It's actually WORSE. Not even one slightly funny incident before the first commercial break. I was sort of hoping for so stupid it's funny, but not even close - just ....lame.
