Hawkes of a Feather...Double depressing news from two 'progressive' leaders today.  It seems our freshmen President and Minnesota Senator have been washington-ized into the operations of the corporate war machine. I think they both resoundingly qualify as Hawks:

Remember last year when President Obama promised to close Guantanamo Bay within one year?  Today (January 11th) is the annivarsary of the opening of Gitmo - 8 years ago.  The one year deadline set by President Obama is January 22nd, and it looks like Gitmo is still going strong!

Today I finally got around to installing a new version of Drupal here on wilbur.us.  This new version is a build of Drupal 6.15 from the Advantage Labs Drupal Repository.  This is an awesome build of Drupal, with a lot of built-in modules and features that will make your Drupal life a LOT easier!

Last week my friend Pwajdeur was over, and I gave him my copy of Hiren's BootCD.  I did not realize how useful that CD is, so tonight I had to go back online and get the newest version and burn another copy for myself.

Spend the day at home, making a batch of American IPA.  I have been obsessed with American Pale Ales made with Chinook, Cascade and Centennial hops.  The Chinook goes in as the straight bittering hop, and the Cascade/Centennial additions are added continuously at 10 minute intervals.  Today I used more Centennial because I only had a little Cascade left. 

Check out the comparison to the BJCP Style, the hop IBU's topped the charts!  Yeah, can you say hoppy?

It took 8 months, but we have a result. 

Hooray for Minnesota!


Even better news, Gov Pawlenty agrees!

Friday night was a big hit!  We broke 4 beer glasses - at least, and finished off one 5 gallon keg of Brownie Brown Ale.  There are just a few glasses of the Spring Pale Ale, and about a half gallon of Saison remains.  That means we drank about 6 cases of beer here on Friday. 

Here's a photo of me and Chandra and the birthday sheet of bars.  I don't know what kind of bars, I did not get in line in time! 

Thanks to everyone who came by and made this such a great night.

Happy birthday to me!
