Reminds me of pretty much every one of our old sessions.

Finally back home safe and sound after 235 miles of driving, 8 hours of line waiting, not really much sleep, several oz of coffee and 60 oz of Pliny the Younger split between +Thomas Maufer and myself. Brought home some Elder for the Mrs' and a half-pint pliny shirt for the grub.

Always a good trip!

Coffee for me, too! But the beer was excellent for the most part.

That bug was fixed in Michigan with Public Act 436.  After a token process, the (corrupt) Governor simply declares a "financial emergency" and appoints an Emergency Manager, who overrides all local elected authorities.

Adapted from Douglas Adams: "Infinity is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think that 52! is big, but that's just peanuts to infinity." :-)

I certainly can't claim to have had enough beers to state this from my own experience, but "some say" that Pliny the Younger is the best beer made in America. It's certainly the best beer I've ever had.

In line for Russian River Brewery's tapping of Pliny the Younger. Shockingly, the same spot +Thomas Maufer​ and I were at last year!

We're actually starting about half a block closer to the destination. I slept so poorly last night that I could have gotten here sooner.

Soon... Yessss, sooon. Mwhahahaha
 
Almost ready to begin the trek north to Santa Rosa to Russian River Brewing Company for the great line-waiting preceding the 2016 unveiling of Pliny the Younger tomorrow morning. I went last year and can highly recommend it. It's worth the wait.
Pliny the Younger will make his 12th Annual return to Russian River Brewing Company February 5th through February18th, 2016! It will be available on draft each day at our brewpub until we run out of that day's allocation, which rarely happens. Younger is neither bottled nor available in growlers ...

My little hobby project; drive an arduino + oled + rotary encoders with +Dart​ so I can (in version 1.0) support +FlightGear Flight Simulator​. In 0.9.0, you have everything you need to build things from scratch.

Introduction
I'm a practitioner of the art of software development, at least I think its art...

I enjoy working on cars, houses, and just about anything to ticks or whirs. Brewing beer, 5 gallons at a time. Photographing anything that catches my eye.

Dr. Maa is great. He took the time to discuss options, called me back after hours to make sure I was doing OK, and is very friendly. The office is great.

I've had Mike come out and take care of my trees, moving some around, and planting a new 24" orange tree in my backyard. They are great people to work with and I recommend them to anyone.

My wife and I are new to the area and finally got around to visiting Seto the other night. We can't find enough good things to say about them. The sushi was great, the style was great, and the service was awesome.

Three stars is one star too many! Lets start with a quick list of things that are wrong: -The wifi network is horribly slow and many page loads fail. I assume they've purchased a consumer DSL line and are sharing it amongst the 15 floors of guests. -The bathroom didn't have toilet paper when we checked in. -There's popcorn finish on the ceiling above the shower - which is on a very low ceiling. I have no clue how they keep it clean, but if you are tall like me then you'll keep hitting your hand on it. -The elevators in this place are janky. You have to use your room card to select a floor, but the card reader works about 1 in 5 times. -The restaurant is really slow to order, deliver, and bring you the check. If having cheap furniture, a cheap LCD TV with low-def channels, an air conditioner, and a small 4 cup coffee machine in the room is enough to earn 3 stars, then sure. For $80 a night I would expect more.

I called up and ordered my 2012 Volt from Dan Schlappi over the phone. He helped out getting me tracking information and keeping me up to date as it was manufactured. When I went to pick it up, I got to meet Mr. Megel himself. The atmosphere of the show room was warm and welcoming. I only wish the dealership was closer to home so I could take my car in for service easily.

I first started going to Discount Tire Co. after a fellow car club member suggested them for my 255/50zr17's. I've been going to them ever sense. The price has always included everything (balance, rotation, installation) and I usually get their nice "do anything to the tire and we'll replace it" warranty. What really sold me was one trip to Boon, NC. one winter; my girlfriend at the time and I were stuck with a flat, I called the store in Atlanta and talked to the manager about finding a place to get my tire fixed. He called me back and got me in touch with another manager in Greenville (en route to our destination). I pulled up, they fixed the tire and sent me on my way. A+ service every time!
