    Old School

    Hi, my name is Ize. I've been a member since 2006 and became a Lifetime in either 06' or 07'... don't really remember. Haven't brewed in ages. Still have all my gear. May need it now more than ever.... Stumbled across a batch of hangover helper I kind of forgot about, which made me think of HBT...

    Score!!!!

    I'm tickled-effin'-sh!tless right about now. We consolidated our 5 radio stations from two buildings into one this fall. Per my boss anything left behind is fair game. Whomever wants it, it's yours. I already put my dibs in on the old refrigerator at one of our old buildings, I just have to...

    Was it wrong?

    SWMBO went Christmas shopping with her sister this afternoon. In Springfield 40 miles away, where I used to work, that has a store that has REAL beer selection. This of course hit me after she had already left. The cell phone convo went... Me: "I need you to do me a favor after you're...

    Bridge Policies

    Apparently do work.... We were on one when SWMBO had her little heart issues back in June... and the Bridge Policy for health ins. that I got has picked up all but a small part of the bill so far. (and the bill for her heart procedure was substantial) so I'm a pretty happy boy this evening...

    You started. You stopped. You started again...

    I notice that a lot of folks who introduce themselves started homebrewing a while back. Stopped. Then picked it back up again. (I meet this criteria as well) Why? I'm STILL stutter-stepping getting going a year + later after finding HBT... I blame my SWMBO and the offspring, but that's...

    Life, Life and more Life...

    I've been gone a while. Mostly because of the job. Some know, some don't, I started a new job at the beginning of May. Honestly, it's an old job. I had this position once before with this station, but they came back with new management, new ownership, and the old proverbial "offer I couldn't...

    A less expensive reunion tour?

    http://www.foxnews.com/wires/2007Apr25/0,4670,SpinalTapReunion,00.html Unlike some of the more expensive tours out there, if these guys hit the road you might actually get paid to go to the show. :rockin: :D Ize

    Scanners

    Does anyone else monitor one on a regular basis? (Other than for work) My SIL and BIL got us one 2 Christmases ago, and I have only the minimum of channels prgrammed into it, but I find myself getting addicted to it. Ize

    Made a new friend today.

    At least it seems that way. I stopped in the small liquor store across the way on the way home this evening. They usually don't have the greatest selection, but I didn't feel like dealing with Kroger and their really lousy beer selection. So I walk in and there's all kinds of activity in...

    And on that Van Halen note....

    Ummmmm.... Let me be clear, I HATED The Police in my younger days. This I may pay to go see. (meh, I'm old) http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,248040,00.html Then again, B.B. King will be in Champaign March 22nd, and that may be a show I have to get up and go to. (yeah I know...
