There should be new galleries up in a few days.Â I just downloaded 534 images from the camera and after initial elimination am down to 194.Â That’s only 43% of the original which is a good first round reduction.
Always check the clock before you begin brewing. Last night I started a new batch of Black Hills Porter and didn’t realize that the time was about 9:45 when I popped the yeast pack. I didn’t get to bed until 2am and I pitched the yeast when it was to hot without realizing it.
The top of the carboy felt really good and so I pitched the yeast. Afterwards I felt the bottom of the carboy and it was quite hot. Just over 100 degrees I’d guess. This afternoon things are going well on the fermentation, but it’s not nearly as quick as it should be going.
Update: On 12/31 the beer was racked to a secondary carboy as most visual action inside the carboy has ceased.
I’ve got a new site in the works.Â It’s almost complete and once it’s done will allow me to post narratives along with the images contained in Tagless Galleries.Â It’s testing now and should be up in another week or two.Â If you’ve ever wanted to learn what my thoughts and plans were as well as some of the challenges that I’ve had to deal with, then this service will be for you.
Last weekend Melissa and I went Christmas tree hunting up in the woods. Pictures are in the Tagless Galleries in the 2007 Christmas Tree Hunt Gallery.Â We drove out to the end of the road and hiked up the hill from there.Â This was my first time out there and I didn’t realize the watershed extended that far east.
I put more pictures online today. These are from the master bathroom remodel. I pulled the shower and replaced it as well as the floor. You can see the pictures in the Bathroom remodel Gallery. I’ve still got a few pictures to find and post that show the final state.
The pictures from fixing the pool light are now online in the Pool Light Fix Gallery. One more reason to be careful with the advice you get from so called professionals in the field. All said the project cost me about 150 in concrete, rentals, and tools. The quote to have it repaired was $950. The time was significant on this project. I cut into the concrete Friday at 5pm and worked till 9pm Friday, all day Saturday, and all day Sunday to have the hole filled with dirt. After a few days to dry out and settle, I poured the concrete Wednesday morning.
Well,Â It’s about time.Â I spent some time uploading images tonight.Â Here’ the links:
Our new Kitten Poppy has her own gallery now
I uploaded pictures from the Riders in the Sky Concert
I uploaded the pictures of Stella and Fergus in the snow from this weekend.
We finally got a break from the ultra cold weather that Medford has been experiencing this weekend.Â Sunday the temperature made it to 46 and today was 48.Â With Sun out yesterday I cracked the pool ice just to see what was there.Â I had tried to step on it the other day and it still wasn’t quite strong enough.Â It was around two inches thick.Â Check out the pictures of the pool ice.
The last set of pictures from the 4th street Patio Remodel Gallery are online. The new pictures start on Page 3. There’s also the pictures that I took later in the week for the 2006 Bellingham Washington Snow Storm. Start on Page 3 for the new pictures. I loaded up the 2005 Baja Singles Cruise pictures
