Dang, missed BVB, LCN and Fishy!

So glad you and Karine are making it LCN! yay!

well, heading out early to do some tractor work for a friend. hoping to start at dawn, to get done in one day.
It's only 50 miles, but takes about 2 hours, pulling(and trying to keep slowed down) 10K worth of Bobcat and attachments on hwy 49 across the American River canyon.
Wish me luck!

Stay safe Yggy. Although I could picture you strapping into a yoke like an ox and hauling it yourself all the way.

Morning al

I love it when for a few brief days jetlag makes me a morning person. :)

Today I am very happy about my impulse purchase of banana tea the day before I left Sydney. It's seriously yummy!

Then this evening is the Reno Compression in downtown. Lots of fire, art cars, friends and big fun.

Good morning!
I'm having my morning coffee. My weekend version of morning coffee is pretty much a cesspool of coffee, baileys and/or Kahlua, and whatever is left in the bottom of whatever bottles I find in the bar cabinet.
This morning is special, I found a dirty dusty bottle of leftover tequila straight from the playa :)

F-u-c-k-I-n-g A! Ticket and vehicle pass arrived TODAY.

5 minutes earlier, the laptop crashed. Hard. It's not going to revive. So be it, I still have the big clunky desktop, and so I'll go get the laptop fixed or replaced later today or tomorrow. In the meantime, I'm getting prepped with the little things at Rhino HQ.

Big plus for tonight - CLEAN SHEETS! I'll enjoy sleeping on them while I can

Final plus for the day: the book order arrived, and with it my copy of the new textbook Geochemical Kinetics. Very well written, and quite informative.

Sarsparilla is the same as root beer right?

In a general way, yes. It's like saying that Ale is the same as Beer. Root Beer is generally more sugary and includes additional flavorings but it is made with extract from the sarsparilla root (hence Root Beer) and/or birch and sarsparilla oils.

Ah, root beer vs. sasparilla, a lovely competition. And then there's Horehound Candy. I should bring some along.

I'm at an actual bar, ok it's a "beer garden" at a festival, but the band playing right now is kind of shitty, so I thought I'd check in here for a bit
I poured the First Mate (Charlie) a Klondyke Bar before we left.
Try it it's yummy... equal parts Kahlua, Baileys, Frangelico, RumpleMinz, and half & half.
Tastes like a Klondyke bar!

Sounds yummy!

I've been getting into rums lately. I've always liked it but only recently began to educate myself about the different varieties, in particular the older ones.

I'm on more of a quality tequila cycle right now
And microbrew beers, but Seattle is full of those. You can't even get a Budweiser at a bar around here

Rums, Kitty Kat? Well, it's the perfect day to enjoy a Cuba Libre, rum, coke, and a lemon (maybe lime).

A friend shared some Corzo anejo at one time. I think that's my favorite tequila so far.

black cherry shake is my favorite. If you ever "swing" in there, let me know if you liked it.
Last time I was there was this past spring, before an Aces game. Had a pastrami samich, fries and a black cherry shake.

dang long day yesterday, all day on a tractor, and 2 hours of brake burning canyon beat the hell out of me.....haha
seems like it should be ok to put in a 20 hour day, but, I guess I'm just getting soft.

I hope everyone had a great time in Reno yesterday, the pics look like fun!!

Whoops! I spoke too damn soon! The laptop is back on! I was confronted with the nasty assed blue screen of death, so I unplugged everything, including the battery, and it REBOOTED!

Dadgum. Saves me a trip to the repair store.

Beyond that and the ticket to Burningman arriving yesterday, I'm OK.

Thanks for listening.

103 f today, I'm enjoying iced coffee under the AC and fan. The puppies are flopped out. I'm watching the Captain Jack series on the VCR. I plan to lay out the carpet, tent, and bedding ( in the carport shelter in the front yard ) this evening.

Sleeping under the stars tonight.
