REBOOT!

My last homebrewing podcast was back on August 26. Now, my finances are better, I'm back brewing, so it only seems reasonable I start yapping about it again.

So, starting on Sunday, Nov 18, at 6:30 PM, EST, you can go to http://blogtalkradio.com/youmakewhat and listen to me prattle on about my favorite hobby.

So, I hope you'll listen, maybe even call.

Back in the saddle

I've decided. I now have beer to make, there fore, I have something to talk about. I'm restarting my brewing podcast.

My first new show will be Sunday, Nov 18, at 6:30 PM, at http://blogtalkradio.com/youmakewhat

Hopefully, I can get back the people who used to listen, and attract some new folks.

Finally, Some Good News!

The last time I had money to brew was waaay back in April. My financial picture has finally gotten better. So, one of the first things I did was to order supplies to make three different beers.

It'll be here in just a couple of days. I'm getting stuff to make a mild ale, a spiced Christmas ale, and a porter. I think I'll do the mild first, because that will get beer in the house fastest.

Also, since I can be back brewing, I also plan to go back to talking about it. I'm going to restart my brewing podcast.

It's hard to describe how happy I am. Life is beginning to look pretty good.

Unrelated

OK, this has nothing to do with brewing, but I had to share this. I saw a clip of Neil DeGrasse Tyson. I love listening to him, and I feel it illustrates a point I had made on another blog, at http://joestarot.bravesites.com. I'm not sure if I got this exactly right, but it's as close as I can remember it.

"One thousand years ago, we "knew" the Earth was the center of the universe. Five hundred years ago, we "knew" the world was flat. What will we "know" tomorrow?"

My point is that we don't know what we think we do. What was once nuts is now accepted. What is nuts now may one day be true.
