For me it's an obscure concept.
Caused by boiling your ribs before you grill them.

Have a great day off savoche...sounds like you deserve it...and having worked IT Client Service in the past, I know exactly what you speak of...it can be a thanksless job
No kidding. No client support, luckily, but even when delivering servers and services to "professional" partners you can encounter impressive levels of incompetence.

Oh well. Checking the quality of the beer right now. Still undecided, I probably need to check another one.

Let's see, we have one IT guy stressed out, and another chillaxing, guess that balances out.

Crazy Mrs Bob went to IL this morning, across the JB bridge, with a friend to do take some kind of crafty class.
She will have to come back home via a downtown bridge.
Stubborn ass German blood in her was not going to allow a reschedule.

Check six, then reevaluate the need for six more.

I'll do my bit of chillaxing over the next three days, too. And I will have to start taking some days off to avoid accumulating too many hours.

Good plan. Although, I think I need to check a bottle of Portuguese white wine as well tonight.

It's past 8pm, the sun is up and the temperature is still perfect for shorts and t-shirt. Summer is coming

Although, up by the lake where our mountain cabin is summer still struggles somewhat. This image was taken by a fellow Pentax shooter yesterday. He has a lot of wonderful images btw. He must have a good camera

The town she went to is not far from Waterloo, IL where the Stubborn German Brewing Company is located.
I need to go there, once the bridge is open both ways.
"Real German bier,
Made in a real German town
Made by real Stubborn Germans!"
(should say a town settled by real Germans, but why split hairs?)
Stubborn German Brewing Company – Waterloo has Bier!

He has the very best camera in it's class.

And he made an awesome image with it.

You can tell him that I said that too.

I will - if I encounter him. He seems to be based some 3.5 hours south of me. Or, since I don't have a car, 18 hours by bike or 2 days on foot according to Google.

Yep, pay day is the closest you get to receiving thanks in this business.

Because I want to go there and get it fresh from the spigot. Plus the ambiance, the building they're in was built in 1885.
She's home safely and now playing the piano. I think it hurts Brooke's ears, she's giving me one of those "make it stop, dad" looks.

Mrs Bob has stopped playing, ears saved!
She does play beautifully, and the piano had its yearly tuning recently.
