Eyes are no go

Sad news … Jantina went to Miami this week to see an eye specialist. We were investigating Lasik surgery because her eyes have gotten progressively worse over the years. We found out today that she cannot do the procedure because 1) she had arthritis as a child (and continues today) and 2) she doesn’t heal well in general. So we are really, really disappointed in that. But we are glad we didn’t go to some mall joint that would have done it regardless… and the possibility of then going blind.

I am flying home tonight and then traveling to Miami on Friday to meet Jantina and our friends that are there. We plan on spending the weekend down there. I’ve never been before, so should be new and fun!

Fun with Web stats

My friend Worm was sitting on his back step when this huge tree decided to fall on his house. And he got to watch.

Ultimate recap

A couple people, both who have played before, came out to my J’ville Ultimate thing today. They each have some leads on more players, so that seems good. I’ll keep trying and see where we get.

kiss it, kiiiiiiisssssss it

Fine, I’m posting. I don’t have too much to say. I can’t be grouped with Ryan and Brett.

So, I’m home brewing now. I know what you are all saying, more of that disgusting junk. No, I have a real capital investment and kegging capacity. It is easy to do, but the initial investment is high. I have yet to accomplish something in the “light” variety but that is next. My current menu includes a porter and a soon to hatch IPA.

Spring has sprung in St. Paul. The beer gardens are bustling and the grass has returned to a spotty green carpet. I have begun to ride my bike everywhere I can and hope to get the Kyak out soon on the lakes. The back patio is complete ( I believe I left it there last post) and I’m trying to enjoy that. So being outside as much as possible, working with wood and such should keep me busy.
