Welcome to the world Aurora Rooney

Say hello to our new daughter, Aurora Rose Rooney. Born September 10th at 8:35 pm. Kim called me with a bit of a frantic voice at 1:30 am telling me that she thinks her water just broke. I was in Wilmington Delaware for work and thus wasn’t there when this happened. Thankfully her friend Kristen…

Science Dog

Instead of posting on this blog regarding home brew I decide to make a new site specifically for brewing. The idea is that I will keep track of recipes that I use, and what I do differently from batch to batch so I can recreate them or see what I did wrong upon reflection. It…

Say Hello to Gadget

Yesterday we adopted our new Puppy Gadget. At the moment sprocket is a little grumpy about everything but he seems to be slowly warming up to her.

Beercount 1

Kegerface / Beercount

I recently got a deep freezer secondhand and have setup a kegerator/Keezer out of it. This makes it so I don’t have to bottle with yeast inside of the bottle anymore. This helps give beer out to friends and family and also have homebrew beer on tap. While I enjoy this and look forward to being…

The Beginning

I think this is the 3rd time I have setup WordPress on my home server. I keep pushing myself to do better in all areas and this can be a catalyst to do so. I plan to push some 3D work and post it here as well as push my communication skills. Ohh also some…
