Miko & The Printer: A Love Story

Miko & The Printer: A Love Story

  Our cat LOVES the printer! I’m not sure if other cats are like this but Miko hears the printer and she comes running. We have even used the printer to pull her out of hiding places in the past. The printer was in a place she couldn’t get to for at least a year. […]

We Are Not Invited

Hophead just called.  He was contacted about a beer event to participate in on May 19th but he noticed we have a wedding on the calendar and he didn’t recognize the names. Me: Oh Harry and Meghan? Hophead: Yeah I think that’s it. Me: Harry? Hophead: Not ringing a bell. Me: Prince Harry Hophead: So […]

Cruel Summer

So today is my birthday… I have a few more friends… and a few less. I am getting so many well wishes on Facebook this morning but among those are the feelings of disgust over the hate in our country. It’s sad what people do to each other, especially these days. It’s like middle school […]

Questing Loudon

After helping Hophead brew on Saturday [8/20/16] we were wiped out. I am his new Assistant brewer and you bet I am adding this to my resume. Sunday brought rain and a wee bit of cabin fever for Hophead. I was fine because I was busy drying spent grain from the previous day’s brewing plus […]

Six Degrees of Separation

I am obsessed with six degrees of separation! From Wikipedia: Six degrees of separation is the theory that everyone and everything is six or fewer steps away, by way of introduction, from any other person in the world, so that a chain of “a friend of a friend” statements can be made to connect any two people in […]

Animals in the Little City

It was late the other night and Ginja called as I parked in the driveway in the back. We were having a fairly serious conversation when it all ended suddenly. First let me explain my driveway is off an alley that runs out back of my house. Typical Downtown Frederick house. I don’t have a […]

Frederick, Maryland

I LOVE my town! Hophead and I moved to Frederick in late 2012 and we LOVE living Downtown. Visit Frederick:   #FrederickLife


Have you heard of Vanish Brewery in Leesburg [Lucketts] VA? Hophead LOVES the Brisket there. If you love BBQ; be it chicken, pork shoulder or brisket you have to check this place out. Eat BBQ and drinking beer! It just don’t get no better. You can bring your kids and dogs, probably your pigs too… […]

The Terrible 20s

They call it the terrible 2’s but I think they forgot the zero. Everyone has heard of the Terrible 2s. I always said Ginja’s Terrible 2’s never stopped, but she is 20 now [almost 21] and this might be tougher. When they are 2 years old they are physically everywhere and you have to always […]

DC Fans suck!

Damn! I love me some Jenks.
