    Utility Bill for December...SHOCK!

    Ah yes, this sounds familiar. They also provide a breakdown of what is using power in my house which is pretty much impossible since they have no idea what is on each circuit and how much each is drawing. Anyway, their accounting is totally ridiculous since according the them, lighting is using...

    Utility Bill for December...SHOCK!

    I have to laugh because my utility company just recently sent an e-mail with some "meter insights" that stated, "Your energy use is pretty normal so far." Great, that's to be expected since we haven't changed our habits any, but the cost is definitely MUCH higher relative to previous months.

    Any loose leaf tea drinkers here?

    I have a pound of Stash Lapsang Souchong that I've been working through and it has had really nice smoky flavor without being over the top (although I do love smoke!). Much like Latakia, the smoke has faded a bit as the tea has aged. It takes me awhile to get through an entire pound since I do...

    Cherry (Again)

    I was definitely NOT a fan of the Boswell's Cherry Smash as it made me sick each time I smoked it.

    For other non-overly sweet nor goopy cherry blends, try KBV Sakura and KBV Dark Fired Cherry

    Is Aged Tobacco Mostly Mystique?

    There aren't really any proven rules. It's all personal preference.

    @Brewdude ... Wow, I thought that I had made it through quite a few books since I took up the activity again in February when our dog died, but you are a reading beast! I have slowed down a bit in the last month or so, but my current book in progress is:

    Ha! I'm originally from NW Ohio (the part that was a swamp that was drained and is now as at as the eye can see!), but have been in SW Ohio for nearly 25 years now. It's crazy how fast time seems to go by when looking back...
