Winter break comes to a close

Some final photos from the end of Winter Break days:
Stuck in traffic on the way back from SB,
wishing we had beer for some reason...

Italian Bakefest! 

Tribunal Wine has a crazy label:
Unicorns, cats....


Foxes, more cats all in a courtroom.
If only there was a Sasquatch, it would be complete.

Not your ordinary back-of-the-bottle fluff.

Home brewing Double Chocolate Stout:
Steeping the grains...

The brewing queue: malt, hops, malt, hops, cocoa power!

We are copying Young's recipe, but
maybe we will copy Magnolia and name it:
Chocolate George Stout!!!

Sparging the grains!!!

Spent grain cookies!!!
No pictures of the finished product,
but they look a little like cow pies...
John likes them, but I am on the fence.

Adding the hops!

 We spent our last free day hiking at Wildcat Canyon Park:
There is Mount Tamalpais...

By 'rough' they apparently meant extremely muddy.

This is where we ate lunch.

Oh noes, it's the Pizza Monster!


....Wiiild Cat.....

 There is Mount Diablo.

 San Pablo Ridge
'Moon - California Hiking' gave it a 9/10 for beauty...
I would agree.

Getting a hand tan.

More Tam

Trail to Nowhere

It was a Cow's Paradise.

Post-hike French Onion Soup!

Mmm hm

I am in denial that classes start tomorrow.
The weather seems to be pouting also.

Here's hoping for a good spring semester!


  1. Where was Quatchi?

  2. I know, he has been hibernating... we will have to wake him up.
