I give a fairly detailed run down of my adventure building my kegerator last night.
 
On Building a Kegerator
With the semi-recent brewing of our Pliny clone I decided that it was time to take the leap and start kegging instead of bottling.  I really don't like bottling at all so it seemed like a no-brainer to jump to kegging. I had the money saved up so now was as...

My friend Ed makes some really cool #art  from re-purposed and recycled stuff.  He has started to sell it on etsy.  Check it out.

A couple photos of my first ever dry hopping.  I hope this beer works out but I never seem to get much yeast activity during primary and this was no different.

I really think I need a chamber.

About four weeks ago our Pliny clone went into secondary fermentation.  I'm still not sure I get the best fermentation action as I never really see much bubble motion in the lock during any fermentation period. However, I'm sticking with it and yesterday I ...

Inspired by +Michael Brown and his recent fire pit construction I built one yesterday and then burnt up a bunch of yard waste and a pair of old rotten wooden patio chairs.

I should have made this years ago.  It only cost about $50 in supplies.

I still need to get a screen cover type thing for it to help minimize the chances of stray sparks flying out of our yard and into a neighbors home.

It's the screen cover that will cost you.

This past weekend there was a #geocaching  event in Huntington WV.  This photo is of one of the container caches.  The log is in a small vessel that is in the tube.  You have to twist and turn the tube to get the vessel to emerge from the depths - it's sort of a maze.

There were a bunch of neat/creative containers among the 15 caches unveiled.  Overall it was a cool experience and the trail of caches is a great addition to the community

I got a new Galaxy S5 yesterday.  So far I'm pretty happy with the stock experience of it but I did feel like I had to make a couple changes right off the bat.

1. I switched to the Google Now launcher.  You have to download the apk because the Play Store won't let you install it.  However, once it is installed it will update via the store.

2. I wish I could either customize the widgets in the status tray to include the torch (flashlight) or put a widget for it on the lock screen.  I tried out a bunch of lock screen alternatives but I don't like any of them that much.

3. My camera photos all seem a touch blurry or noisy (compression artifacts) when I look at them in full size on my desktop.

Matt no. I was getting tired of the instability of cyanogenmod. Plus I doubt there is a certain for this phone yet. I got it on the day it was released.

Adam I debated a long time between the two phones. The m8 looked really nice. It was a difficult decision. I'm sure you'll like it.

I was a bum for much of the winter but this past month I've been getting back into the swing.

Endomondo is supposed to share to g+ but it doesn't seem to work.

Yesterday was a beautiful day. If my knee were healthy I probably would have jogged for hours.

I've reverted to Nova launcher from the Google now launcher (gnl) on my android phone running CyanogenMod 11.

The gnl would keep links to apps on my external SD card on my home screen.

While I like the voice command integration my home screen was otherwise unusable.

I've used cyanogenmod for a couple years and I like it.  I have an older phone and I am running KitKat on it thanks to Cyanogenmod, my phone never would have gotten this kind of support via AT&T or samsung.

Overall the food is standard Max & Erma's food. It's consistently OK. The atmosphere is pretty good and the wait staff is generally attractive and fairly attentive. Far better than Applebees..
