At the Last Cache Bashe event today, Parmachenee and Team2Hunt recommended "Arrogant Bastard Ale (http://www.arrogantbastard.com/index2.html)". I guess I'll have to try that.

I can recommend it as well.

After that last post, I was browsing the Moosehead website, and found this item (http://www.mooseheadcountrystore.com/products.cfm?argID=9B72B79B-7861-4E5E-A2DDD914E6B28466) in the Moosehead store that would be a great asset for geocachers!

Sheesh! Gotta get one of those...

Do they make a version for those that want to do a "concealed carry"?:p
That would actually be pretty handy at parties when you are trying to fix a food plate and run out of hands.

Actually, I once saw a plastic "wraparound" for beer cans, so you could disguise a beer can with a Coke "label", for example. LOL!

I could tell a lot of stories about being in Munich for my 21st birthday. Some of them involve what is affectionately called " Beer Court." Went twice. I was hanging with the wrong crowd and a guy from Australia that thought it would be fun to drive the Strassenbahn.

I have a couple of those glass Octoberfest mugs, so I just went to the kitchen to make a test. I filled a mug with water to the "beer line" and weighed it: just a little short of 5 pounds.

Anyone who has ever heard of The Solon Hotel knows that it has a reputation of being a wild place. The following story is supposed to be true.

A Somerset County Sheriff's deputy was parked a short way from the Solon Hotel late one evening, expecting the usual drunks to try and drive home. He observed one young man, obviously loaded, stagger down the hotel steps and approach a car. The drunk fumbled with his car keys, dropping them a couple of times, but eventually getting the car unlocked and getting into the car. The guy managed to start the car and immediately stalled it. He again started it, jerked forward, changed gears and jerked backwards, changed gears and jerked forwards. The deputy approached and asked the man if he'd been drinking. "Sure have", said the man. "Are you trying to drive home?", asked the deputy.

"No" said the man, "I'm the designated decoy".

We're were in the area to go to King Richard's Renaissance Faire (http://kingrichardsfaire.net/) in Carver, MA before RULost2? has to be in Boston for surgery on Monday. This was WELL worth a trip from Maine. Great for the whole family even LITTLE kids. Many of the attendees were also attired in period costume, and many of them were outstanding.

Well, RULost2?'s surgery went well. They removed a 1 inch "growth" (they called it a cyst, but it's being tested) from near her spinal cord. She's hooked up to a morphine drip and she's having a ball. She doesn't like the food, though.

Hopefully she'll be let go on Thursday, and we can get back to geocaching.

Once there was a company in Australia (http://www.bundabergrum.com.au/default) that made rum. They produced a commercial (http://www.bundabergrum.com.au/bundy-bear.htm), which upset the animal rights activists.

So the rum company produced another commercia (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bRvE_fNW_N0&feature=player_embedded)l as a response.

So cool!

(Also see the third commercial (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQUO2W-YcL8), which is a parody of the "showdown" sequence from the movie "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly".)

It's the way eBay works.

Say the bidding starts at $5, with a $5 bidding increment. The maximum you want to pay is $50. So you bid $50, but the actual bid shows up at $5, the starting bid.

Another guy comes along and bids $10. But you've already bid higher with your maximum bid, so the actual bid (in your favor) shows up at $15. This keeps up until you win the bid, or someone bids more than your $50 maximum.

Yes, you keep seeing the same name over and over again, but that is because he's bidding against someone else. Perfectly normal (and I hope you were able to follow this description).

I've been an eBay member since 1996, and have a feedback rating of 468, so I've done a few transactions! LOL! Much of my Christmas shopping will be on eBay. :D:D

Remember: A lot of the bidding occurs in the last minute of the auction. Submitting a bid when the auction has 15 seconds left will often win it. :D:D

You can buy saffron rice in any grocery store, right here in the good old USofA, keeping our $$$ in this country and State. It's usually in the soup isle , It is yellow and has a nice rich flavor. I make it with Liguica and peas. The colors and the flavors compliment each other nicely.

I note neither saffron or rice are grown in Maine, and although you can also buy spaghetti in a can, I prefer to make my own from scratch. LOL! You can usually buy saffron itself in nearly any grocery store, but if you prefer to use packaged mixes, go for it. :D:D

Speaking of "keeping our $$$ in this country and State", did you know that Hannaford is owned by a Belgian company - Delhaize (http://www.delhaizegroup.com/en/Home/OurMarkets.aspx)? And Shaw's is owned by a company based in Minnesota (http://www.supervalu.com/sv-webapp/retail/retail.jsp). :p:p

Woo, Thank Goodness they pay their Maine Employees in USD.
And if someone likes to eat Saffron rice alot or Use it in their cooking, They definatly should buy the spice. Didn't know they sold it in Hannaford, Cool!!! I figure , one could get it in the Mall.
I do like Hannaford, Shaws is a little to expensive for me and you don't need a discount card at Hannaford. And Hannaford is closer to where I live. I hope I save a little gasoline,which hopefully helps in the long run to.
But before too long Walmart will run the "store" world .

I've watched several episodes of the program, but not this one. I saw a program a couple of years ago on Discovery or something about how they reconstructed an ancient beer from the remains in old pottery.

Just like I didn't watch the episode in which they made beer from chewed grain that they then spit into the container. :eek::eek:

And yeast spores are always in the air - everywhere. I've made bread several times using wild airborne years. Great flavor! :D:D

When I make Turkish Ekmek (bread), I put 1/2 cup of flour and 1/4 cup of water in a stoneware crock and place it on top of the refrigerator. The next day I add 1/2 cup of flour and 1/4 cup of water, stir it well, and leave for another day. The third day I add 1/2 cup of flour and 1/4 cup of water and stir it well. The 4th day, the mixture should be bubbly and smell a little sour (like a sourdough, but not as strong, but actually called a "biga" - or bread starter.) (If it isn't bubbly, fake it and add 1 tablespoon of dry yeast.)

Put in a large bowl (I use my Kitchenaid Mixer), add 2 cups warm water, 2 teaspoons salt, and gradually mix in 4 cups flour. Then rise, shape and cook like any rustic loaf.

Fantastic - and best eaten with beer and cheese! :D:D

Years ago, I was a "Hash House Harrier", which is often described as "a drinking club with a running problem." In the military we had to run to stay in shape, but we'd run to someone's house and have a beer, then run to someone else's house, etc. I've often thought about having a "Hash House Cache Run", where the object is to find the next beer. But the liability aspects keep me shoving the idea onto the back burner.

I am always looking for a new taste in beers and lately I have found 3 of them. All seasonal, and all from Long Trail Brewery in Vermont.

At a recent beer tasting featuring Vermont's most famous brewery, I had Centennial Red and Coffee stout. And last night one of my places to stop along the way home I found a deal on Long Trail's Hibernator, a unfiltered Scottish Ale. At only 6.99 for a 12 pack I couldn't pass it up and I'm glad I didn't. I'm told that Whole Foods has the entire line up.

My last and most interesting beer came from of all places to buy a good beer, Hannaford's. It's from a Montreal brewery UNIBROUE and the beer was MAUDITE, easily found on the shelf by it's label, a winged devil and flying canoe. And another unfiltered brew.

I have never really cared for unfiltered beers, remembering Harpoons UFO. But now I have two news ones worthy of consuming.

I can't find it on the Sam Adams website, so here is the description I got in an email from them:

"We’ve also got a brand new and very special pack out, called “Samuel Adams® Latitude 48 Deconstructed”. This one-of-a-kind mix takes the five hop varieties used in our Samuel Adams® Latitude 48 IPA, and breaks them out into five distinct beers, all with their own special taste and character. Try each and we think you'll come to appreciate the difference between these hops."

(Sheesh! Why is it that most of the Canadians leaving the store were carrying Budweiser or Coors???)

According to my sister, Moosehead is an "American" beer. Don't be swayed by it. True Maritimers drink Alexander Keith's. Now, I must confess, I'm sitting in Nova Scotia right now drinking a Geary's Summer Ale. My sister was not impressed.

Well, RULost2? and I have toured at least 12 breweries during our travels, and the Moosehead Brewery in St. John, NB was definitely the best we've been on. But we got rained on heavily at the Antigonish Highland Games yesterday, and bought a case of Nova
Scotia's own Oland Export Ale (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oland_Brewery) on the way back to the hotel. Also good stuff! (Sadly, now owned by Labatt's, a division of Anheuser-Busch/InBev (http://www.ab-inbev.com/)! LOL!)

Have you tried "Alexander's Keiths India Pale Ale?"

Sheesh! Only about 1,000 times! LOL! (Have even toured the brewery in Halifax...) (And as a matter of fact, we even saw it on sale in HAWAII - although you can't get it right next door in Maine.)

And I have recently seen "Alexander Keith's Nova Scotia Style Lager (http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/6994/68483/?ba=Chad9976)" for sale in Maine. Sure doesn't taste like anything from Canada, though...

More about Moosehead Light Ginger (http://mooselight.ca/en/gingerlager), which I mentioned a few days ago. We went out to a restaurant in Saint John, NB, and RULost2? ordered a Moosehead Light Ginger at my suggestion (OK - I forced her...).

But I tried it and it was GREAT! Very refreshing, not a weird flavor like you'd expect from a ginger-flavored beer. More like ginger ale with a kick! Definitely worth trying if you get to New Brunswick. :cool::cool:
