During the same week getting two job offers. One doing programming work for about a 50% raise, the other being a full time brewer. I would say tough decision but I went with the money but I am also going to be organizing the brewery, retooling recipes and weekend brewing. So best of both worlds!

(if anyone would like to give me suggestions on beer styles to put into the roster let me know)

Great news. Congrats to you.

I typically cook steaks with only sea salt (or Kosher salt) and black pepper. But I tried something different recently and it was incredible. Mustard seed, along with the salt and pepper. Not a lot of it, but just a sprinkle on each side. It's awesome.

This new girlfriend is pretty awesome.

Someday, I'm sure sooner rather than later, she'll land in the things that piss me off thread.

My grumpy 15-year-old dog
Watching the Steelers -- win or lose

The last year or so has been absolute chaos with lots of change. The change hasn't been all bad, but it has been incredibly stressful. That can make life pretty challenging for someone like me, who has been prone to depression for as long as I can remember.

But...I am really looking forward to a quiet cross-country drive with my dog next week. And whether they win or lose, watching the Steelers for a few hours is a sure-fire escape from the seemingly endless stress.

Go to a gourmet food place and fall in love with all of the mustards.
the good shit costs $10-$20 for a bottle.
(not the yellow kinds at the grocery store made for hotdogs and potato salad).

Spread it on 1 side of your steak and marinate for a couple hours as it warms to room temp.
Then grill it over wood or charcoal.

Lots of things make me really happy:
My dog - and all dogs, really
My wife (usually)
My family (also usually)
Good times with good friends
A good comedy film
A good action film
Concerts
Comic books
Playing the guitar, even though I suck - I just like to play around with it
Drawing
Building and painting plastic models
Trivia
Games (board games, video games)
Watching/playing sports
That UPMC commercial with the mentally impaired kids riding the toy horses and just being happy
Not being hassled and just left to do my own thing
Being right
Seeing people get what I feel they deserve...both good and bad.

Strat-O-Matic Baseball and Axis and Allies are my two favorite board games ever.

NO WAY!!! I love playing Axis and Allies. When I was younger I would play this against a cousin and it would take so long yet be so much fun it would sit on a special table in our family room for weeks sometimes until we got together enough to finish the game. I never found the online ersion to be much fun though.

The online versions of A&A blow. The CD versions aren't any better. The AI on both are terrible. The AI has no sense for strategy, it operates at the tactical level. The only way the computer version works is head to head but nothing beats the board versions.

What side did you like better? I actually enjoyed both.

Probably depends on which side that I played the last time. The friend who play the game with me are pretty good, neither side has an advantage, at least not much of one.

I love Risk and always wanted to try to play A&A, but could never find anyone interested in playing it.

I'm looking for anyone in Northern Virginia, who wants to play A&A.

This photo makes me happy. Not just because it's my son and he's likely the only kid in Northern California having his picture taken with Santa while wearing a Crosby jersey, but will you look at the elf in the middle?

"The business of baseball is to make money, not break even. I don't understand why you think the Pirates should run their team like a charity." - Willlton 6/18/2009

"The Bay trade doesn't look like it (a slam dunk winner), but if you take into account the fact that all they lost was eight months of Jason Bay's services, as well as the fact that even the Red Sox look like they won't be able to re-sign him, it's not nearly the loser many people seem to think." - tWTM 11/26/2009

"Morton is finding himself, now while this may sound weird and out there, but the fact he put on a solo concert at Piratefest shows he finally has the confidence that he lacked within himself that he didn't have in the lower minors." - aso513 2/8/2010

"Dave Littlefield vindicated." - Xiga 4/30/2011 after one scoreless inning of relief by Daniel Moskos.

"Hanrahan and Cedeno would be a gross overpayment for Belt. Sorry, but I'll stick with my realistic analysis of the market and the teams involved." - Steve Zielinski 5/25/2011

"He (Barmes) could have a .000 Batting Average and still be an asset." - bradlej31 5/28/2012

"The last time the Pirates won an extra-inning game in St. Louis that lasted at least 16 frames was April 20, 1986 at Chicago." - Kristy Robinson 8/19/2012

"I want to tweet something clever and interesting to you that will earn your respect and make you smile, since you do that to me all the time." - jpbucco to Colin Dunlap 4/12/2016

"If the Pirates had acquired Giancarlo Stanton from the Marlins, I’m not sure they would have “won” the Benedict trade." - David Todd 11/11/2015
