Low on the carbonation and at 6 IBU, this beer has more of a wine than a beer profile. Château d’Ychouffe is the result of a blend of La Chouffe golden ale wort and juice of sweet dessert wine grapes from Château du Cros.

This is the best english writing of the beer's story I've found: "When Brewery Achouffe celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2012, the dwarf Marcel was offered a trip to the lovely little “Pineau river” in Bordeaux.
Like the source in the woods of Cédrogne, the water of the “Ruisseau de Pineau” has medicinal qualities for dwarves.
When Marcel arrived, he met other dwarves there, who were wine growers. He started talking to them and discovered that the “Pineau” dwarves grow their grapes in an area covering 66 ha near the stream. Using the must from these grapes, they produce a fine dessert wine, Sauternes. Before returning to the land of Achouffe, Marcel placed an order with them for must from two hectares of vines. This must was delivered to Brewery Achouffe, where it was added to La Chouffe beer to obtain a unique and perfect fermentation. This delicious drink of 8,5% alc./vol. should be savored among friends as an aperitif or with dessert."

I grew tired of having the shoulder of an old man and busted ankles. I'm trying bodybuilding / lifting heavy things as a treatment. Two months in and I am experiencing positive results. My only goal is helping my body stay strong with age.

This video isn't my inspiration, but I did stumble on it at about the time I started this path. I sure as heck wouldn't have pegged him as 70. Can most of humanity pull this feat off or is his DNA special?

As a meeting adjourned today, the [Christian] Chaplain closed with an 'Inspirational Quote': "Not what we have but what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance." -- Epicurus

I smiled seeing this. I also pondered how he came to choose this quote. Was it a random selection from a website or book of quotes that someone else has deemed inspirational? or was it knowingly chosen even though Epicurus and Epicureans have very different perspectives from Christians?

Every day is a work day for us when deployed with the military. Though on the 4th of July we had some time to drive to Macedonia for a day trip.

With it being our first trip there, no GPS, and a different alphabet, we had a bit of an adventure getting there. When we finally arrived we saw a massive herd of people. Little did we know there was a protest planned for the day (specifics below). I darted through the crowd to make our way to the lunch destination rather than hang out to see what goes down. While eating, we could hear irregular booms of cannon fire. Also while eating lunch, we had the pleasure of encountering the cat from the Pet Cemetery. The thing looked scraggly and un-dead, but was very much alive wanting attention. I was just waiting for it to go evil and attack my coworker. Once we got some lunch into us, we roamed the city until the sun was low and it was time to head back. The photos tell the story from here.

======
Hundreds of stone-throwing ethnic Albanians protesting a court ruling clashed Friday with Macedonian police, who fired water cannon and tear gas at the crowd to prevent them from storming a court building.

Police said about 2,000 people gathered in Macedonia's capital, Skopje, to protest the life sentences imposed this week on six ethnic Albanian Muslims convicted of murdering five Christian fishermen, in an alleged plot to destabilize the country. The six men deny the charges and their lawyers said there was no material evidence against them.

The Easter 2012 shootings of the fishermen, in a lake near Skopje, fueled simmering tensions between Macedonia's Christian Orthodox majority population and the mostly Muslim ethnic Albanian minority.

Being a beer lover from Rhode Island, it may be a bit strange that this is my first Narragansett. I'm not to big on lagers, but I'm loving this on my vacation.


A little Ubuntu GNOME in the background too...

Troubleshooting  - 
 
How do I disable the screen saver/blank black screen that pops up every 10 minutes?

I turned just about everything off in Power Management and even tried to remove it from start up (that was mistake -- cause wifi issues). Parole is set up to prevent the screen saver (it doesn't). I tried installing caffiene from a PPA, but the disable doesn't seem to function in XFCE.

What am I missing?

This is Xubuntu 14.04 installed on a ThinkPad T61p.

Apparently this is a thing.
What caught my eye first was the table (I have the same one purchased in Germany from Hela -- German Home Depot) and the bottle shape of our locally brewed Bitburger. I saw a taste of home in the video.

This is about as close to IPA Day as I can get.

Have one for me, beer brewers and imbibers!

First we have to know what an IPA is, +Sandra Goulet -- it's an India Pale Ale, generally bitter from the hops (flowers/cones) added to the beer. It is viewed, by Americans anyways, as the most iconic style of beer and is used to unite beer brewers and drinkers across social media.

I have Ubuntu GNOME and Xubuntu installed on separate partitions with /home as its own partition. I can boot both (and Windows) perfectly with GRUB. What I'd like, is for applications to work on both flawlessly. How do I do this?

More specifically, +Steam. When I boot GNOME, I see Steam and all the games and everything works. When I boot Xubuntu, I see the games (shortcuts and such), but they don't work because it doesn't think Steam is installed. I'd like for both to work side-by-side, if possible. Any tips? Need more information?

Yes, I thought that was a perfect solution when I fresh installed the LTS, however, it backup'd the game only. Over a 100hrs of combined play hours for both my wife and I were lost, but the game files were intact and I didn't have to download them. So, I just need to be sure that I have everything.

*This is for the beer lovers. *
I pulled up YouTube this morning for some tunes while I work. YouTube was suggesting something I've never heard of, so I gave it whirl.

I have no idea what is being said in the video other than bier and bitte. However, between living in Germany, being deployed, enjoying beer, and the rediculousness of this video, I started the morning with a laugh.

Enjoy... and back to work for me.

Some text areas are too big with a high DPI Ubuntu GNOME machine. The attached graphic shows this issue in two areas of FireFox, but it happens outside of FireFox too. I get that some applications may not scale and end up tiny (for instance, Chrome's tab titles), but this looks fixable.

What am I doing wrong?

I've tried adjusting scaling (it is currently at 1.0) and that just changes the size of the interface. I've tried changing font sizes, but maybe I don't know what I'm doing.

I'm not a 100% sure if it was the upgrade from GNOME 3.10 to 3.12, but this is mostly a non-issue now. I'm also using no-squint in FF with the zoom at 200%.

I am hearing more and more related to lowering body temperatures to save lives.

"We are suspending life, but we don't like to call it suspended animation because it sounds like science fiction," says Samuel Tisherman, a surgeon at the hospital, who is leading the trial. "So we call it emergency preservation and resuscitation."

Call it what you will, this is a great step. 

When someone reaches an emergency department with a traumatic gunshot injury or stab wound, slow cooling isn't an option. Often their heart has stopped beating due to extreme blood loss, giving doctors only minutes to stop the bleeding and restart the heart. Even if the bleeding can be stopped, it's not like filling up an empty gas tank. Resuscitation exposes the body to a sudden onslaught of oxygen, which can cause tissues to release chemicals that damage cells and cause fatal "reperfusion" injuries.

Finding ways to cool the body until it reaches a state of suspended animation – where people are not alive but not yet dead – could give doctors more time in an emergency.

I am sure this will become standard operation in the near future.

I have visited this restaurant a handful of times, each time enjoying something else from the menu. The pizza is great - very fresh. Other baked pasta dishes are just as good, but pizza is the focus of the menu. The pizza with the town's namesake, Kyllburg pizza, has been my favorite offering. The riverfront view is beautiful and service is great. Only once have we experienced a problem of one of the employees not knowing they had a "Baby Pizza" on the Kid's Menu. Some English is spoken and the menu has enough English to order without difficulty.

This cafe serves coffees, beer, wine, cakes, and ice creams. There is indoor and outdoor seating with a great view over Malberg. Service has always been fast and friendly and the cakes and ice cream is delicious. Outside of the view and friendly staff, the Belgian beer selection keeps us coming back. It is one of the few places in this region that offers such beer: Tripel Karmeliet, La Chouffe, and Leffe.

The price was a bit much for the quality of food. It seems to be billed as something more upscale - the decor and prices spoke this, but the food did not. No lights, plain food, but friendly service.
