Port Brewing - Santa's Little Helper

A bit pricey for a 12oz bomber but still quite good. Not as much bourbon as I prefer but not too sweet making it a well a balanced imperial stout. Love the label.

Keeping Manufacturing Jobs in the USA with Veterans

DNKB Inc. has a goal - and that is to become the strongest U.S. based manufacturer today, and the fuel behind that goal is their multi-talented, pre-trained team that relies on U.S. veterans and other underutilized Americans who really want to work.

The Milk Carton Kids

Great show at the Mesa Arts Center. They must get tired of being compared to +Simon & Garfunkel but then again, they were great and so are these "kids".

Over a year since I have ridden my mountain bike. I don't recall it being so challenging and painful.

Would you pay for an advertising free YouTube experience?

#youtube #noads
As expected, YouTube is starting an ad-free, paid tierbut the site also plans to keep some exclusive content behind a paywall.

We sadly said goodbye to our kitty of 18 years a few weeks ago. We are so thankful for Dr. Christina who made something that we were dreading such a peaceful experience. We have experienced euthanasia at our veterinarian office and will never do this again now that we know about Gentle Journey's in-home pet euthanasia. RIP little buddy!
