SixPackTech wishes to welcome a new sponsor, LemonFree.com. LemonFree looks to be a sort of aggregation point for used cars especially Jeep Wranglers, only easier and better. Lemonfree.com is a free listing service that allows buyers and sellers of all types of cars to buy and sell freely. No better place to advertise than SPT. Their ad is in the left sidebar; you can miss it if you don’t look over there. You can’t miss it. The Weekly Babes are underneath.
Readership is growing slowly. Surprisingly and ironically, on Thursday last week, the daily visits equalled exactly 2,000 and page views were over 4,200 for the day. In contrast, star ratings for the weekly babes still hang in the 20s and the Nat or Not votes are still under 80 per week. Go ahead and rate the babes. Vote for the NORN babe. We don’t track any visits and have no reason to know who you are or where you’re from, if that’s what’s bothering you. All it takes is one click to view, one click to rate or vote. We’ve been doing this for years. Move that mouse finger of yours.
The Brew Review Table has been brought up to date. Some browser tabs, some copy/paste and some saves brought it up to current status with a little effort. And a bit of time.
The Faves, on the other hand, are a prime consideration for the chopping block. There are so many posts on this site that are so good that it’s not only hard to keep track of, but also time-consuming to code and post in another location. I just might place a new Fave category and just flag them as they go by on a daily basis. Yeah. That sounds cool.
I attended the September meeting of the MASH homebrew club and brought along a beer brewed by Twisted Pine Brewing out of Boulder, Colorado called Ghost Face Killah. From their website:
GFK is brewed with 6 zany peppers. Anaheim, Fresno, Jalapeno, Serrano, Habanero and Bhut Jolokia – Otherwise known as the Ghost Pepper.
My son had bought one 12-ounce bottle of this beer during our trip to St. Louis over Labor Day, and we passed a glass for tasting samples around the room. It’s by far, the hottest, spiciest beer I have ever tasted. We watched each other’s throats glow right through their skins afterwards. We glommed onto two more bottles and brought them home. I took one to the homebrew club meeting. The same phenomenon.
Since the beer was a complete palate and tonsil destroyer, it was served in small increments for sampling. You should have seen the facial expressions. Priceless. A lot of furrowed eyebrows and utter astonishment over one sip of chili beer. One member suggested that he’d like to use the beer as an ingredient while cooking brats. Now that sounds like a good way go with this killah beer. Cook with it. Season the food with the beer, saving two sips for your throat. Then feel the heat. Lasting heat.
The autumn weather, heavier clothes and more blankets are all in the near future. Time for one last ride or two before it becomes half enjoyment, half punishment.
I still love doing this shit.
