Ebay [Sep. 27th, 2014|10:49 pm]
For some reason, my Ebay account has disappeared. I've been logging in with the same account name for years, but when I tried to sign on tonight it wouldn't take my password. Once more, when I tried to get a new password, Ebay sent it to an email address I haven't used in at least six years. I created a new account, it's no big deal, but I'm curious why something like that would happen.

Kansas is such economic trouble because of Republican fiscal policies that they're auctioning off sex toys. *LINK*

Stout [Sep. 21st, 2014|04:04 pm]

This afternoon, I brewed up a batch of oatmeal stout beer. It's the same recipe I used last November, and that batch turned out so well I wanted to do it again. It should be ready to sample in a couple of weeks.

I also did some housecleaning. I had been saving green bottles for when I brew hard cider. But, they took up a lot of room, and as infrequently as I make cider I couldn't justify keeping them in stock. I've got plenty of brown bottles on hand. So, I donated the green bottles to the recycling center. That cleared off some space. Putting cider in green bottles was more of an aesthetic than a practical move. Now, I can use regular brown bottles, and mark the bottles as cider with green bottlecaps. It's what's inside that counts, anyway.

The Gypsy Flower Power Camp, which was on the 4:30 Street this year, has earned the dubious distinction of "the filthiest camp at Burning Man." *LINK*

This is awful. Even if you don't go to Burning Man, or go camping, or travel at all, responsible people pick up after themselves. Leaving garbage behind for other people to clean up is just plain rude. Pack it out, people.

I'm finding the idea of doing nothing today very appealing...
