  1. Election 2020

    You know, I can't stand either party any more. But up until the last couple days the Democrats look like they were ready to implode as the party struggles between "blue collar" and "batshit crazy socialist". Then Dumbass comes along, spouts off a Tweet, and suddenly the Dems are reunified in their hatred for him. Good job, Don. It's so ridiculous anymore I suspect it's intentional.
  2. Netflix: "Mine"

    Well, in this instance I get what their criticisms were about at least. But for a mindless, "let's see what happens" experience, and considering the low expectations I had for it, it was really good.
  3. Iszards Has Been Purchased

    Mr. Capriotti is doing one hell of a job, no doubt.
  4. Trail Cam Delights

    I knew we had this topic somewhere around here. I checked the trail cam that's been out for a couple weeks and unfortunately I had it set a little to high off the ground. I did manage to get this shot: Funny enough, I saw Mama and baby yesterday getting a drink not far from there. I put the cam back out and made a dirt hole set without the trap, we'll see if a little smelly gunk brings in something interesting.
  5. Home Brewing

    I know absolutely squat about brewing, but have the notion to try and make a good blueberry ale that isn't watery.
  6. Our younger son chose this movie to watch last night, and honestly when it started I didn't have very high hopes for it. So you may think, like I did, that it's "Castaway" in the desert, right? Well, it turned out to be a damn good movie in ways I wasn't expecting. There's some subtle storytelling here, little hints dropped along the way that there's something more in this guy's story. Then, as the desert heat, dehydration, and hallucinations begin, you get to see it. The last 1/2 hour or so is great visual storytelling, I thought. You're not sure what's real and what isn't. There's a lot of symbolism going on. It left me going to bed thinking, "Wow." As expected, it got horrible ratings. But if you're looking for a way to kill an hour and a half, take a look.
  7. Gardening Thread 2019

    Okay, will do.
  8. Gardening Thread 2019

    Things are taking off. The beans, zukes, and pumpkins have blossoms started. Additionally, we might have peaches this year. One tree in particular is loaded:
  9. One thing thst bothers me though: Why is it, that a good deal of time has passed and yet 11 still can't barely string a sentence of more than four words together?
  10. People who post spoilers, at least intentionally, should be flogged. Same for people who think it's funny to blurt out endings and major plot points to ruin it for others. How can they have spoilers for Season 4, did they film that at the same time as 3? ( I'm not gonna go looking in order to avoid said spoilers.)
  11. Just finished it and over all it easy pretty good. There was one thing I don't believe was historically accurate, namely a character's reaction to another's revelation. And I hope I managed not to spoil anything. I do believe they left room for Season 4.
  12. Briggs Cream Ale Making A Comeback

    When I met up with Steve he said there have been several area bars that are very interested in having Briggs available based on the historical/ local aspect alone. I'm very hopeful and supportive of his efforts, and have no doubt his enthusiasm and passion will pay off. It'd be AWSOME to see the brewing returned right here to Elmira.
  13. This is a story I've been setting on for a couple months and finally released today: http://home.elmiratelegram.com/?p=1752&fbclid=IwAR0oguqhcCrO14Y5T0Y25FLRadVvR658QWrl1sF5pvl5AECp10quQbpImkA I spent about an hour and a half, maybe more, talking to Steve back in April. I think it's a pretty interesting concept and am really looking forward to seeing how it goes.
  14. Anyone else watching it? I was worried it'd just be a re-hash of the previous season but it seems like they've stepped it up a bit. Eleven is becoming more bad ass as she gets older it appears. So far we're enjoying it.
