We were at an Irish Pub and when we came home . We watched the Office , Thirty rock and it is always Sunny In Philadelphia . We usually don't watch TV but Thursday night is our comedy night so if there is another outage could you schedule it for a Thursday ?

It has been many years since we've been to Lindisfarne but drinking any type of mead is always incredibly nostalgic for me. (I grew up about 40 - 50 miles south of there).

Brewer,
My son's first batch of honey Mead turned out really good.
Got the black and tan brewing now.
Pass on the recipe you decide to do, if you will?
My brewer is thinking about his next project. Seems he has a car boy sitting empty and looking for a fix or was that a mix?
He is really enjoying the hobby,
Steve

PS. I tried warming the mead up. Turns out to be a very nice hot toddy for the body.
I think I like it better warmed up, this time of year, anyway.
I can just see the old Monks brewing it now !!!

Glad to hear things have worked out well.

In my younger days I would ferment just about anything. Nowadays it has been strictly beer for years. But I have some supplies and honey on order so will post arecipe when I do start up again.

I agree with all who appreciated the updates. I did too--so much better than a cryptic error message.

I checked the site a couple of times and got the updates on what was being done to restore things. Then I found a movie on the Indie Channel that I had seen years ago but got drawn into once again, "The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert". Loved the music and the dancing. Thanks for all your hard work getting things up and running again and for the updates!

I wrote a bunch of spammer related haiku - which seemed sane and productive at the time....

These bytes are not yours
Foul ether plague, is stomped out
Your prize is denied

Eat worms and die scum
Eat worms and die scum again
Eat worms and die scum

I have to admit this last one wasn't very elegant...

It was down? Gee, and I missed it! I guess I must've been too busy goofing off or something! Oh well.....

Didn't know it was down. Had to work long days.

Researched recipes for jerk sauce and habaneros.

Researched dry BBQ rubs on the net.

Researched more about how to make boudin on the net. Found more good stuff.

Great minds...etc, Audrey!

Found a YouTube video how to stuff sausage casing without the machine. Might try that this weekend!

Also found a bunch of Justin Wilson books on-line. I know what I am getting for Christmas this year!

Let me think... Siesta which is always a good thing, packed a food box for charity from the pantry, sorted some stuff back around the house that accumulated at the dining room table for son to take upstairs (mainly his college textbooks!). In all just enjoyed myself without the ER Team.
