    Birthday Present Idea

    My birthday is in a few days and my wife wont quit bothering me about "giving her ideas" for a present. Essentially, I think she wants me to pick out my own present, but truth be told there is nothing that comes to mind that I want or need, but the "I don't want you to buy me anything" response doesn't seem to go over well with her.

    With that being said, does anyone out there own something they think I should have? Buy any cool gadgets lately? Seen something advertised you really want?

    That's a solid idea. I know at one point she was going to pay for me a buddy to play Blue Top Ridge...anyone ever played it?

    I use this kit

    Midwest Supplies - Brewing Starter Kit w/Better Bottle


    I think that it works pretty good. Doesn't take up too much space when I am not using it. Most of it can be stored in the buckets and in a small box.

    Do you like BBQ? Smoker Grill. Small charcoal torpedo style are not very big. Same with the small electric ones, bout the size of a dorm fridge.
