Interesting scalie, TJ. Ambitious.
Slow down! I still need to frame my wing!

<sigh> I may have to put some other projects on hold so I can have my BoT ready for spring.

+ 1000

I'm partial to Henry Weinhardt's root brew, with A&W second, and Barques third.

Then there's birch beer. Mmmmmmm-mmm!

Since I'm alergic to most grains, and don't like rice beers, I'm stuck with hard stuff... and since whiskey doesn't seem to bother my alergies, and since my wife's maiden name is Daniels, I could easily be... Jack Daniels... Gentleman Jack gets my vote... but not very often...

OOOHHHH, Birch Beer, YES!

Unfortunately, the nearest place I know of that has it is about 1400 miles west of here.

Have you tried any of the sorghum based beers? A friend of mine has celiac and drinks a sorghum based brew. He swears that it is as good as barley based beers.

OH man, so sorry to hear that! Having had three knee operations on one knee I "feel" your pain! Better living through chemistry... and here's hoping for a speedy recovery.

As for those who can't enjoy a beer every now and then, and have "allergies" to other grain products, might I recommend that wonderful beverage - Wine!?!

Cheers,

Rob

Thanks Rob... absolutley fabulous PAIN! just went 10 ft to get to the bathroom and wanted to punch holes in the sheetrock all the way back to the couch... I guess the only thing woody related is the fact I was biting on a stick to keep from screaming like a lost girl scout!

Sucks when that happens Sean, sometimes it would be great to have a time machine app. Seams there is one for everthing else. LOL I sure would have liked one today after I fell off the lift while building. landed backward on the ice and folded a leg the wrong direction. happens quick but just hit the button and reverse time for only a couple of seconds and correct the problem...would also work great when we make a sailplane build mistake! there are three seasons here in Montana. Flying season and ski season with a little mud saeson to seperate the two. I was so looking forward to ski season.

Capt. You fell thru a conveyor? is that why you build backards?

Laquer, I *did* say I was cheating. I blame Al. (thanks, man!)



I just need to wait for Friday $$ and install the servos and get her balanced and programmed.

The other BoT is still hibernating on the table.




Don! If you are ever in the area, let me know, and I'll show you the BEST doughnuts in the valley. This is also where I get the birch beer. Bring a straitjacket.

Hah! No, actually, it was the simple act of climbing up into her Explorer.

My uncle once broke his back with a sneeze.
