Yeah but with me I've learned that the WIFE is all seeing all knowing. I've learned over the years what causes her Come to Jesus moments , what actions I take result in overwhelming Shock and Awe responses and I've learned to avoid those moments to the best of my ability. Mother Walker never raised such a fool ! I have 1 beer, I live to drink another beer another day !!! 🍻
It’s for your own good… ;) and I guess she likes having you around!

I've had tinnitus for years,
Someone close to me has it, he plays loud music, of all things to drown it out. Not a good situation.
I've had it happen for a few seconds at a time once in a great while and consider myself lucky. Weirdest sensation.

It sucks. Annoying as H. I don't have hearing loss but I have type 2 diabetes and if my sugar starts getting high I get ringing in my ears...weird. It's a blessing and a curse at the same time. Like a early warning system siren. Annoying but necessary.

I've had it for decades; note to my 12-year old self, do not fire a 30-30 without ear protection.

At this point, it's just background noise, but I do like music playing as often as I can to drown it out. Not necessarily so anyone else has to listen to it, but just to distract me.

I have one of my bottle drag fermented Farmhouses I am calling Hail Saison earlier, Before that I had a Farmhouse Ale that I brewed with Hothead. I think I am going to have a the second of the bottle drag fermented Farmhouse that was a split batch that I put Roasted Pecans, Vanilla Beans, and Pear Juice in secondary.

You have another buddy who opened a brewery?
Yep. Two more guys from my HB Club, same as my Humdinger friends. The new brewery, in Grover Beach, will be called Apogee Brewing. They're "soft" open now, with a grand opening scheduled for early March. Great couple of guys, but they have a ways to go to make the leap from garage to a full on brewery. Proof of that is they want me, of all people, to come in and brew a couple of my beers on their system.

Broker's with a twist. Carpano's vermouth new at the Pennsylvania packie... an interesting change up from Dolin. Broker's makes a VERY solid Martini. Carpano's is less sweet than Dolin and a bit spicier. This one prepared 5:1.

Edit: Secret to the lemon twist, use a vegetable peeler, snap in half along the horizontal axis over the glass, yellow side down, then rub yellow-side out around the rim. If you can see the lemon oil floating on the surface, you did it correctly. Obvi, glass is from the freezer @ 0F.
