April’s new moon: What to do we we don’t get what we want

26 Apr 2017 la luna, the seasons

For one brief second this past weekend,  I believed that spring was truly on its way. Well, I suppose it actually is on its way, but it is just taking its own sweet time in arriving up here in the nordic lands. Perhaps it’s the same for you, fellow North American friends, wherever you are. You see, within the course of 24 hours, for the past month, we have had rain, hail, snow, sunshine and wind.

How brewing beer reminded me to go with the flow

28 Feb 2017 liz+lina YouTube

My wife is an editing genius. She sat down yesterday afternoon to begin editing a bunch of videos that we had made when we brewed beer about two weeks ago. And the result is amazing. Ok.
