If a neighbor that you dont know has a pile of fruit trees in their front yard, and doesnt answer the door when you knock to ask politely if you can pick the fruit before it makes a mess, and you pick the fruit anyway, thinking, hell its just gonna fall and make a mess.... you might be a stiller. 100lbs of pears and 500 lbs of apples. :thumbup: And no shotgun pellets in my arse :thumbup:

Maybe Bigbob is right and I am a god of fruit 8) I once read a book that had a guy who was a rain god and didn't know it. All he knew was that wherever he went it always rained and all the clouds knew was they loved him and wanted to show him that by raining on him all the time. :lol:

Now if I could only convince Tater I am a god of fruit maybe he would move my fruity goodness thread from off topic back to fruits and vegetables where it belongs.

I kicked off generation 10 of my UJ last night, and waited for it to take off.

I do this every time -- I get worried within like 2 hours that I screwed something up, and start trying to figure out how I'm going to fix it. I have a temp probe in the barrel, hooked up to a raspberry pi that runs a web server so that I can monitor the temperature from wherever.

This afternoon the temp started slowly climbing, and I'm now reloading the page every 15 minutes and getting a buzz every time I see it go up 1/10th of a degree.

As part of your common knowledge you know there are enzymes you can add to law clippings to render them fermentable

Not following you HDNB, did you change the word walk into wank? Course it could have been my fat fingering this damn keyboard but I'm pretty sure I typed walk.
