"This I did, tellng Natanis and Hobomok they were safe in hunting for a matter of three hours, though it was a move that did me no good. Yet I cannot rightly say I regretted it; for it has always seemed to me that if we regretted and sought to avoid all the small movements that lie behind our misfortunes and disappointments, we'd spend our lives in regrets and our days in immovability."

the exert from the book tells you nothing of the story, but may depict something about the author.

Back logged

I have a back log of post, but little time to get them up.

1) bike blog - including pictorials of removing a cotter pinned crank from a '69 raliegh record.

2) 50 mile ride round trip in the rain to spectate, but the beer was gone and a fire would have made lots of people warmer. Luckily I brought my own supplies. Double up with a stop at Ludwigs and sucked down Hop devil watching, racers pick up UCI illegal dollar bill hand downs. Chase by sheppards on commute home, I think the alcohol on my breathe scared them away.

3) The most important, or at least fun event to put on. My sleep is lacking due to late night antics and mission critical shuttles.

4) If I have any interest in doing anything but touring, I better get to a better health and wellness program, but curretn program is great for heavy weight wrestling matches and touring.

5) 3 hours out of work. fuel for night and new trail (is a one way ride) need to video the drop in.

6) Phils better beat some Yanker arse.

7) My girl is not a tom boy. and my boy likes sliding on his knees in grass.

8) almost forgot a major part of last weekend was home improvement, as time consuming and tedious as it may be, it feels good when the job is done. problem is the job is never completely done.

Beer Blog

So beer is a pretty integral part of life, A substance that is as historical as history, these little bugs invaded our drink to help preserve and protect us. Bla bla. So Of course our number one brewery is Victory because well, of course the great product they make is local, and delicious. They are purist to the art of brewing and every style they make rivals any in its class. Anyways I drink it all from 4'0 to champagne . So while at wegman's the other day I saw these for well, 7.50 a 12 oz bottle. But if you ever had it, and I only had it once, it is quite the different experience than most beers. To be honest there are very few people that would even want to try something like this. And even fewer brewers that try to make anything close, but being it Phillies playoff I figured I would enjoy one if after the phillies won. After watching a good game, while drinking, I opened this...

I am really not that into describing beer poetically, If it is a traditional German, Brit, Czech, or American, it is either good, really good or not that good. And to me it is relative to price ("the best beer is a free beer", unknown).When judging beer, it has to be categorized because it is the regional differences that are atempted to be replicated to taste authentic, but yet unique. So back to 120 min, only beers in it's category are from dfg, Sam Adam's, and possibly Belgians because they are so diverse(I have not had one close in taste or strength ). No words to really describe the taste. Let me put it this way I didn't finish the hole thing, it wasn't bad, but with work the next day I couldn't take it. So capped it half way down and put it in the fridge. Happily drank it for the start of game 2. Hop syrup ! with a sherry like in strength, but very unique taste.

with out futher adieu, true to the title here are some shots of my, well beer.
