lol, sorry.

the snobs i grew up with fall for it every time.

sorry, the snobs with which i was raised often are bemused by such a fallacy...


screw their ivy leagues. while they were studying, i was learning. and now i make just as much as them, but by doing something. not just pretending i'm important like most management.

and now they want to contact me on facebook. sheesh.

That's the BEST! I love the people that hit me up on the facespace. . . I wasn't bothered to know them back then, and I'm not now, I couldn't agree more.

Niagara college has whole programs in beer making and wine making. Winery, Viticulture and Brewery Studies

They have three campuses and one is in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, which is in one of Canada's largest wine producing areas.

That was an extra-curricular activity when I went to university (we smuggled the "fancy" thermometer out of the chemistry lab and then had to smuggle it back in again). Probably would've been less stressful to become a brew master than the to earn the Master's degree I earned

i'm on vacation starting in about 3 hours, so i won't be around much. we may be heading to vermont for a few days, or just staying home to get things fixed up to sell the house. i may surprise the family with a quick trip to florida, but that'll depend on if i can get a last minute deal.

see ya when i see ya.
