You make BEER my friend. There is no nobler calling than that! :beers:

You might have a point… or Single Malt Scotch… but beer ranks right up there. :sunglasses:

Well to make scotch you basically make beer first (well, kind of) before distilling so I think it is an equally high calling to make beer!

We canned on Tuesday, and one of my partners was heading back to ATL yesterday. Of course my garage beer fridge is well stocked now. But this is diametrically opposed to @smokinhole’s law about not drinking your calories :kissing:

Sometimes circumstances force exceptions. This appears to be such a time.

I could watch that canning video all day. Fascinating!

So it happens today I’m officially 41- born class 1978.
I’m slightly depressed but beside that all is… well not properly smooth sailing, not properly good… but “Yet it moves”. :smiley:

So- be good, guys.
It’ll be my birthday present.

Show the world how good people can be.

Congratulations my friend!
A recent study has shown that people with many birthdays, live longer than people with few… :wink:

Congrats mate, from here on out it just gets better. Your body might find all kinds of interesting new ways to fail you in the coming years, but your mind can now be at ease. You don’t have to live up to your potential no more. This is it. Enjoy it. (I’m 43 this year)

This is the last stretch.
I’m waiting for the final answers from three companies…
But in the meantime the toxicity of the old environment is stressing me to the breaking point.

I’m sorry to bother but if I don’t vent I might honesty burst or worse.

I’m not able to eat correctly, I’m sleeping at 15 minutes stretch at night, and what’s worse this is starting to transpire at home.

Yesterday I barely caught myself on time before berating the only innocent ones in this situation I plugged myself into.

I just hope at least one of the three will be positive.
I hope karma doesn’t think I don’t deserve it.

I love you guys,
I don’t really need sympathy or empathy.

Just…
I think I just want to thank You all for giving me something to take my mind off things with the usual ruckus.

Hang in there, mate. The night is always darkest before the dawn.

Crossing fingers for you (Swedes hold their thumbs for good luck, which is actually like crossing all fingers at once).

Keep looking forward!
There will come a day when you can look back at all this and say that you came out on the other side of the tunnel, stronger than you were before.

Love you too, man! :heart:
