  1. Oh, I'll bring it! No, really, I'll bring it with me the next time we head out that way! it
  2. Thank you, everyone! I had a nice day visiting with an uncle that I haven't seen in 20 years. We were able to see my father and grandmother in their rehab facilities. Car accidents suck. Followed up with a nice dinner with a few friends and now some relaxation. Oh, I received a new fly rod from Sheri and the kids. Look out Joe!
  3. Happy Birthday, Jules! Hugs from all of us here.
  4. KATE! Hello! Yeah, FAC104 should drop by once in a while. Although, I should talk. Real life has taken some turns for me and I don't get around much any more.
  5. I hope you were able to find a bit of cheers for your birthday, my friend!
  6. I'm a Californian living in Minnesota, so I feel your pain. Although, there are a few decent places in the Minneapolis area. It has been a while since I purchased a bottle of VC, but a few weeks ago I had a few tastes of it with friends and I still enjoy it.
  7. My garden has lots of wormwood growing around it. No bitter tomato's yet! I don't have any genepi yet. There's a nice place (far away from the pontica) ready for them, though.
  8. Have a wonderful birthday, young lady!
  9. Sandy Mush does have a nice selection. Since A.a. grows wild here, getting those plants were easy. I ended up getting my pontica from another source. Rhizomes are the way to go. Things are just getting going after hibernation this winter, but I can see that I'm going to have a complete carpet of pontica. Wow, does that stuff spread. My A.a. is just starting to show some green.
  10. I agree about the cleaning/sanitizing/etc being a pain. I frequently brew 1 gallon experiments and it gets to be a lot of work. It sure is fun, though! There have only been a couple of commercial meads that I have tried. J.Bird Winery makes some decent stuff near me. They are a lower abv mead, but tasty. His Egypt'n Mead that is made with hibiscus is really nice.
  11. I have the same reaction to handling A.a.. Itching, sneezing, throat irritation and sinus reaction. I will admit, that what happened to Phoenix at the party was worse than anything that happens to me. I got the sniffles a bit after messing with the A.a., but I think you were in it a bit more than me, Phoenix.
  12. That is going to change for me, this evening. I'm going to have a little absinthe with other enthusiasts later.
  13. Very enjoyable night cap, indeed. Especially, when sipped next to a nice bon fire!
  14. Same for me. *sigh* No alcohol has been consumed here since the end of January. I plan to rectify that situation this coming Saturday evening!
