The Beer: The Irish Red is ready to bottle. My protege provided me with an IPA that was quite good. Advice: Don't drink while staining the deck.
The Bicycle: All cleaned up and ready to go. Made it all pretty, but don't have time to ride until this weekend.
The VRWC: Why is the United States the only country that has legislation in place that makes it illegal to access vast quantities of petroleum? The argument seeems to be that it will take 5-10 years before we see any of it. How long will it be if we don't drill? And at the same time, the same people are telling us that "new technologies" may only be 5-10 years away. Does anyone else reach a cognitive dissonance over that?
