Hello! If you got here on Sunday by scanning the QR code and had a good time at Brickfair, leave a comment to say hi!
With a minivan packed full with LEGO and just enough room left over for suitcases, Robin and I arrived in Birmingham, AL after a quick two and a half hour drive from Atlanta. Everything seems to have survived the trip in great shape.
We’re off to Brickfair 2013 AL in Birmingham Alabama. I’ll be displaying some older MOCs like my Delta II for the GRAIL launch but this year I’ll also be unveiling a updated 3 foot by 9 foot scene of a science fiction shipyard and airbase. Part of the display are several fighters including what I’m calling the MiG33B. More photos to come after the show. If you’re near Birmingham stop by during public hours on Saturday or Sunday.
Being a home brewer is a great hobby but there is always a temptation and desire to step it up a notch and do something bigger, better, faster or more! To that end there are several things I want to try this new year with this hobby. I’m not that interested in brewing bigger volumes, five gallons at a time are great for us but I’m interested trying new things to increase my skill and knowledge at this fine craft!
What red blooded American hasn’t wanted to be able to tap a keg at home and pour yourself beer? Well if you home brew after a while you do get sick and tired of cleaning, sanitizing, filling, and capping bottles. The solution is to build yourself a kegerator to condition and serve beer draft style.
After performing research on all the best home brew web sites I was really inspired by the keezers I saw a decided to go that route. A keezer is a chest freezer that has been modified for use with beer.
Our house is wired for gigabit ethernet in almost every room of the house. This works out great for streaming media from our home theater PC. When our faith router finally died we decided to get an Apple Time Capsule as we have as few Apple devices in the house and the automatic backup would be a nice bonus. Additionally it’s a nice small all-in-one that will fit in with the new life in Bermuda.
