Game 6, 1986 World Series

By Blaidd Drwg

Like you have never seen it before. Not my favorite World Series moment, but you get to hear the great Vin Scully call it.

Beer of the Week: Elysian Raconteur

By Iron Chef Leftovers

The beauty of Elysian’s beers is that they not only have some grate creativity, but they do produce a good number of tribute beers – beers that are clones of very well known, but not necessarily great beers.  One they did recently was a clone of Yuengling Porter as a tribute […]

The Book On The Seahawks

by A.J. Coltrane

Until the Seahawks prove otherwise they’re going to get a steady diet of what they got last night. The Rams defense packed eight players “into the box”, rushed the lanes on either side of the Center, and dared the Seahawks to throw. Teams have been doing that off and on the this year and last […]

Chocolate Tofu Cheesecake Revisited

By Iron Chef Leftovers

I recently got asked for this recipe again and realized that I have made a few tweaks to it from the original. Basically, make a graham cracker crust rather than using a pie crust if you want this to actually look like a cheesecake. It is easy if you have a […]

Beer of the Week: Populuxe Pumpkin Spice Porter

By Iron Chef Leftovers

Populuxe Brewing decided to venture into the realm of pumpkin beers, albeit with a bit of apprehension, with their Pumpkin Spice Porter. Given my love of their base Porter and my overall love of pumpkin beers, I had to give this one a shot. Pumpkin Spice is a bit bigger than […]

Beer of the Week: Reuben’s Brews German Hefeweizen

By Iron Chef Leftovers

A trip to Reuben’s yielded a few new beers, one of which was a new hefeweizen. Hefe is not a style that tends to be my first choice when ordering, but is definitely a style I do enjoy and appreciate. Being a new Reuben’s brew also means that I needed to […]

Pushing a Player into the Line

By Blaidd Drwg

If you have been hiding under a rock, the Patriots got flagged for a penalty on a FG in overtime, which ultimately lead to the Jets kicking the winning FG. The Jets tipped the refs off that the Pats were using a play which one player pushed another into the line, which […]

Beer of the Week: Sam Adams New Albion Pale Ale

By Iron Chef Leftovers

I am not sure why I waited so long to review this beer. I wrote about the beer here a few months back, and, in case you don’t want to go back and read it, the short version is that this recipe is generally considered to be the first American microbrew. […]

The Latest

by A.J. Coltrane

Here’s the latest. It’s a 48″ x 48″ x 56″ plant house. I had been shopping for either a tall cold frame or a small greenhouse. This one is right in between those two things. It cost ~$60 which is about as much as I wanted to spend on an experiment. […]
