I have CLEARLY been un-posting for too long, if Sparky has surpassed 20k. I am a sad 3k behind.

No, I'm not going to make that up tonight. or ever, probably. Le sigh.

i do think I need to sleep, though. I am such a wuss for sleep these days...

Totally crazy! However, I never had this child in any of my classes. Just had to deal with him in the hall. Oh, did I mention that he's in 8th grade?

On the other hand, I taught a girl in high school when I first started teaching. She was/is a real sweetheart. She has actually subbed for me and I have taught all three of her kids! I just had the pleasure of grading her youngest child's family project. This is her only daughter. She put so much effort into it--with a lot of pics that are nicely mounted and the text is nicely typed, etc. Makes me proud. Her boys are great, too!

Yeah, well, it had the proper grapes, but not the quality, sorry to say. I don't know if it is a proprietary California thing or not. I'm not even sure where we picked up this bottle--maybe at the farmer's market.

Our soup was yummy, however, I have no idea how we forgot it, but we forget to add the crumbled bacon! We made the soup a couple of days ago and cooked enough bacon for the leftovers. Oh, well. We'll have to find another use for it . . . somehow . . .

Oh, btw, I haven't forgotten about those pics, just haven't had the time to triage them! Maybe over Christmas break. Love you both, too!

There's a winery like a block away here that's part of a cider mill. They make KICK ASS hard cider. Like, I wish they could ship so I could send it to you guys and convince you to put them up here.

Why don't we get the hard ciders here? Does that get regulated under beer rather than wine?



Question since i'm trying to come up with some nice different hard cider for my friend who is a supertaster and just find the taste of alcohol horrible, but maybe can drink hard cider? Any chance I can request a bottle or 2 for when you come up in Jan to buffalo? If this doesnt make sense you can ask me when I'm not typing after 4 beers.

Means they might get sued. Since I'm pretty sure Meritage is trademarked and copyrighted.

And it is a specific blend of varietals, for red and white Bordeaux-style wines without infringing on the Bordeaux DOC.

So working 10-12 hour days and not having a laptop really keeps me from keeping up with the pub. But I read a buy tonight. Feels good to take some time off. I'm very happy to have a job though for those of you who know how long it's taken me.

And cheron good luck with the diet!!! One good thing about a 7 week engagement is not worrying about fitting into my dress.

Oh and WF excited to see you on the board!!! Miss you and WD and hope you will make an appearance during D&D.

I happen to be finishing the second glass of the Phat Goose that I opened on Friday which has been simply stoppered and sitting on my counter since, after having poured out a half bottle into a half bottle. And since I'm back doing my crazy diet, I've had all of like 500 calories today to soak it up!

You are not alone, my dear! Cheers to Phatness!



I'm convinced that wine calories don't matter

Does anyone know when the second bottle in that Phat package is going up? Drinking right now.

Seriously, they're amazing.

And hard cider is ridiculous good.

They have a cherry hard cider called Crimson Red that's just om nom, and a blueberry one that had tommy rolling in ecstasy. You gotta come visit me before I move so I can bring you there to experience these. So. freaking. Good.



I visited, I didn't get any cider! :p

The Brits had you beat by like, hundreds of years. I've been drinking hard cider since I've been drinking. Initially hated beer, but enjoyed the hell of out of the Woodchuck Dark and Dry. Used to get made fun of a lot for that. Until I bought everyone one to shut them up, and amazingly, they shut up. Good stuff hard cider. After drinking with the Slovaks for two years I began to enjoy beer. After they went back to Slovakia, I began to enjoy sobriety again.

I got mine the day of, got fitted two weeks before, but picked it up that day. We have it easy because the wedding is about you. Most of us just show up so you'll stop talking about getting married and we can move on to the next thing to be nagged about.

Speaking of kids, I'm totally gonna brag on mine. The youngest one has stopped jumping off the back of the couch and onto a pile of blankets. Now he's discovered that if he hurls himself off the footstool onto the couch he can bounce off and onto the floor, and that's way more fun. That kid is going to develop CTE, he is one hundred percent crazy.

Oh, and the daughter that is in Kindergarten just got bumped up into first grade for reading. Only kid in the class to do so, but she came in to Kindergarten reading at a first grade level. She's way smart and has been cornering me with logic traps since she was two. Drives me crazy.

Over in the UK, I had to try the ciders as well as the ales. Fortuniately, my daughter wanted to hit the pubs every night. really like hard ciders.

Some of my daughter's friends showed up at Woodchuck, figuring they would do tours like all the breweries. Apparently not. But the guy was nice enough to show them around and answer some questions. but no tasting.

at 10am CST or 11 your time, the oft discussed smoker is going to be a lightning deal on Amazon. The product link will likely have a note on it being a lightning deal, but the main deal page is here and will require scrolling as they have lots of things now through Christmas.

Did I mention how f'n good the beer smoked turkey turned out for Thanksgiving? And how tasty the gravy from the drippings/beer were?

Outdoor yes, unless you are good at rigging up ventilation. I don't have that particular one, but I have a similar one and for my family size (5, 2 adults, 1 teen, two kids), needs, I'm not going to be upgrading anytime soon. Everything I've made has come out great.

I put like 20 chicken quarters in mine for fourth of july. it holds a lot. If you want a smoker, i'd say that's a decent one to have. Way fancier than mine, but that window is useless, it's just gonna cloud over in a month.
