Pi Day and Amish Four Grain
Despite what some crabby people will tell you, it's Pi day. And since it only comes every hundred years, we decided to celebrate a bit. Pillsbury cheery-blueberry filling recipe I was not successful centering my Pi symbol Pizza Pie from  Rollo's Eleanor sme...
This Pennsylvania pale ale pours reddish amber with a thin head. What are the 4 grains? I assume there was wheat and rye in there, but they balance each other out too well. A little sweet, not bad, but I was expecting more flavor from the multitude of grains. 5.6% ABV.

Ranger Museum and Ranger IPA
Photo from CenTexFun.com Eleanor's official first museum visit (of many, no doubt) is the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum in Waco. Photo from TexasRanger.org I'm not going to recount the illustrious history of the Rangers here. Go to the museum or wiki...
I'm not going to recount the illustrious history of the Rangers here. Go to the museum or wikipedia for that. But I'll tell you some things that stuck with me: The organization is older than you think (1823). The early Rangers were also surveyors documenting the Republic for settlement.

Kabul and Krombacher Alkoholfrie
Back in November 2013 I had a layover of a few days in Kabul and realized how poorly I had documented the deployment. I tried to take a bunch of photos to capture the atmosphere of the area before I left the country, but I am not very good at it. Before our...

Grandparents Visit and Fat Tire
This weekend the newly-appointed Grandy and Grandpa Tod came down to Texas to visit their new granddaughter. The weather hasn't been super hospitable, by Texan standards, but it's been fun to watch baby E interact with my parents. I'm really glad they were ...
The weather hasn't been super hospitable, by Texan standards, but it's been fun to watch baby E interact with my parents. I'm really glad they were able to make this trip to see her at this fascinating age and that I am free from army obligations to spend all my time with them during the visit.

Camp chair and Devil's Backbone
Once upon a time I came across a small chair for sale on the internet. Photo via Wood&Faulk Amazingly, the list price for this item is $165 before shipping. Which is absurd. I was mad enough to use my internet powers to find the guy who would put such a val...
Amazingly, the list price for this item is $165 before shipping. Which is absurd. I was mad enough to use my internet powers to find the guy who would put such a value on a simple stool. When I found him, my opinion softened because he seems like a cool guy and he wrote a tutorial how to build ...

Expendabelles and Westkust Troubador
Sarah and I have been fans of Sylvester Stallone's " The Expendables " since since a street promoter gave me a free t-shirt in a Pittsburgh bar. I mean, I had been intrigued by the trailer, but that sealed it. And we were not disappointed. It was pulpy, ove...
Sarah and I have been fans of Sylvester Stallone's "The Expendables" since since a street promoter gave me a free t-shirt in a Pittsburgh bar. I mean, I had been intrigued by the trailer, but that sealed it. And we were not disappointed. It was pulpy, over-the-top, absurd, and fun.

A lot of cruiser/classic bike riders don't wear full face helmets. I was one; my first helmet is/was what's called a 3/4th style where eyebrows to jaw is open to the road. It afford great visibility, feels very free, and I'll still wear it on a low speed ex...
A lot of cruiser/classic bike riders don't wear full face helmets. I was one; my first helmet is/was what's called a 3/4th style where eyebrows to jaw is open to the road. It afford great visibility, feels very free, and I'll still wear it on a low speed excursion around town or on a back road.

Anniversary and Augustijn Grand Cru
On this day in 2011, Sarah and I got married in a courthouse in Killeen. Happy anniversary babe, and thank you for bringing this little one into my life. Also on this day, but in 1945, General Omar Bradley and III Corps crossed the Rhine at Remagen before t...
Here's another from Brouwerij Van Steenberge's Augustijn series. Compared to the blond, this pours with a rockier head that lingers and darker golden hue. The strongest of the bunch in both flavor and 9% ABV. I thought it was very good. Posted by Kyle McPherson at 9:00 PM · Email ThisBlogThis!

I've never rode the Yamaha on-post, even though I got it registered there. I've never put in more than 40 miles in a single ride (and that day I blew a fuse and had to be rescued on the roadside by a empathetic Boozefighter). The one time I took it off a paved road, I layed it down in the mud.
