Well I fucked that up. I managed to piss through October with zero posts. I knew the idea of writing a new post at least once a month was never going to work. Oh well, what ya going to do.
Not too much going on. School blows, mindless dribble dotted with barely edible lunches punctuated with mad scrambles to get a report done, because although you had 4 weeks to do it, you really couldn’t be bothered.
Beer production is working itself into a nice pipeline. May I never run out of beer! I am really happy with a beer I made from a kit then dry hopped with some Fuggles. I changed the yeast from what ever shit it came with to a SAFALE US-05, even though the beer I was brewing was a lager. Really, really pleased with it.
Politics is a hot topic right now, and to be honest, I couldn’t be less bothered. US politics I am finding harder and harder to side for anyone. To me they all sound like a bunch of idiots. Republicans with their anti-science rhetoric and Democrats, well just being democrats and too much liberalism for my taste. I no longer side with one side. I am no longer that Right wing Republican, and by no stretch do I lie on the other side. I am a hodgepodge of ideas. Socialism is good to a point, but yeah Capitalism. Everyone has a right to a firearm in return everyone has a right to health care. Government should be small but caring. Wow doesn’t that sound like a load of shit. It is what it is and that is me. Fuck em if they can’t take a joke.
Otherwise life is good, kids are good and the wife is good. My big brother tied the knot a few weeks back so that is kick ass, just wish I could have made it back. Still have yet to meet my new sister-in-law. Hell she is younger than my little brother and she married my older brother. Way to go Bro.
The kids and I had a good time keeping up with our American traditions and carved up a pumpkin for Halloween. I make them do the dirty work. Unfortunately for Caroline she was helped off the top of the slide the quick way and landed on her face, I told that it is perfect and she can go as a zombie, she didn’t find that as funny as I did.
Peace and Chicken Grease
