At long last, the time has come. Both the Munich Dark Lager and the Red Ale are finally ready to drink. Both turned out better than expected. The Cascade hops I added really gave the beers nice floral-citrus notes, just as I remembered from my previous batches a long time ago. While I almost...
A few weeks ago in my drunken enlightened state of mind, I decided to go on amazon for a few items I've been putting off buying. Nothing crazy, just a handle for my 5 gal carboy and some sugar free Heinz ketchup (Don't judge me), but I needed to buy one more item to get free shipping. I thought...
It's been an interesting week. I decided to make the most of the Victoria day long weekend and cash in 4 vacation days to get 9 consecutive days off. I used the opportunity to fully commit to Operation: Hoarder's Bane. I managed to get all the junk removed and recycled. All that's left is a...
Mother nature herself has deemed my city unworthy of springs' warm embrace, and thus I steel myself for what must be done. I prepare for war. I must be ruthless and give no quarter, for none will be offered in kind. I may lose my life in the process, but I will stop at nothing to put to my hated...
The fabled spring time has come at last. The sun no longer vanishes at 6pm, water has been discovered in it's liquid form, and there is an odd green species of flora forming on my lawn. The end of winter is neigh! Or so I thought, I swapped my tires over to All Season for Spring/Summer and we...
I've probably spent most my life resenting any and all grammar Nazis. I've always believed that the message delivered via writing was more important than the mechanics that drive them. A large part of this is due to English being my adopted language (My Hungarian is terrible). The frustrations...
Ever notice how time seems to go faster as you get older? When I was a kid, summer break felt like it lasted forever. Now, the seasons just fly by. It feels like January seems to keep edging closer to itself as the years roll on. A friend of mine pointed out an interesting observation. The...
Woo-hoo! It's Friday at last! This marks my 5th blog of the week. It's been an interesting challenge to force myself to sit down and write, even if I am busy or uninspired. These blogs are more for me than you. I need to build up my writing muscles and get comfortable with sharing my ideas with...
It's been about two weeks since I deleted my social media apps on my phone. I came to the realization that I am wasting a lot of my time. I'd be a hippocrate if I said I don't enjoy a broad selection of spicy memes. They're entertaining and I often used to share it with my friends that share...

I've noticed that the older I get, the more I appreciate the simpler things in life. A stout coffee with breakfast, loosing myself in my thoughts over a crackling back yard fire, or just simply reading outside on a nice day with a gentle breeze, are all things I enjoy more now than when I was...
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. I'm a huge proponent of free speech. I believe anybody can say anything they want, and no one should censor opinions. Toxic and malicious intentions will never loose their potency via censorship. In fact, I'd argue it does the opposite. A...
Well, this is a bit awkward. I'm a blog virgin. I'm not sure what content is expected, so I'll just wing it! :grin: About a month, give or take, I decided that it's time to re-ignite my passion for writing. The first step was to clean out a junk filled spare room and set up a good creative...
