Summer 2017 Bucket List A few weeks ago I started reviewing all the videos we had taken since spring, and I was struck by a conundrum. Most of the video was mediocre as far as the production value was concerned, as most of the videos had been filmed candidly rather than actually choreographed. My dilemma was how to create a video worth sharing from all of the unexceptional video clips we had accumulated. The only common thread that I...

Finding Honda This past week Con Man purchased an 80cc Bicycle Engine to put onto his cheap-ass, 15 year old Mountain Bike. However, his bike’s metal frame was too wide for the mounting that came with the Engine, and the bike frame was also just a little too short. So while Con Man was contemplating some way to jerry-rig the motor onto his bike, Trumper was viewing the current state of gas-powered bi-pedal vehicles for sale in...

America Has Always Been Great On the 4th of July, families and friends across America gather to celebrate the birth of our Nation. It was on this day July 4th, 1776, when we declared to the Brits, “F-off! We’re controlling our own destinies unhindered by your tyranny.” And ever since, this day has been The Day to celebrate our freedoms openly with those we love, feasting on summertime salads and grilled foods, and...

The Rochester Gun Show in Henrietta, NY Earlier this year, Trumper and I took Lib’er to the Gun Show in Henrietta, NY. The spring gun show is always packed, as  thousands turn out for the event here in Upstate, NY. Lib’er was so impressed by all the modifications that had been done to several of the shotguns on display, that he decided to look for some pieces to modify his own Mossberg shotgun. While stomping around the...

Crossman CenterPoint Sniper 370 Crossbow One of the best parts about making a purchase for something you REALLY want, is to draw the process out and anticipate the purchase weeks and months in advance. In today’s culture of instantaneous gratification, most people do just the opposite. However, I like to wallow in my desire for a while, letting it build to a crescendo of “gotta have it NOW,” when I can no longer...

Lower Alcohol IPA Craft Beer


Posted By on Jun 2, 2017

Lower ABV India Pale Ales are Here! I started drinking Microbrews in the early 1990’s (before the term Craft Beer was in widespread use). My love of good beer began with Samuel Adams from the Boston Brewing Company as they put out some interesting microbrews throughout the 1990’s. By the late 90’s I started drinking Saranac Beer, as it was brewed in my State (NY) and they offered a good variety of awesome craft beer....

Meet the DJI Phantom 3 Drone When it comes to drones for hobbyists, the quadcopters manufactured by DJI are among the most advanced. With built-in GPS for exact location, visual positioning for wind stabilization, long-distance WiFi for the Mobile App, electronic gimbal for camera angle-control, and very good lens for high resolution video and photos. I purchased the DJI Phantom 3 Standard Quadcopter at the end of December 2016, when...

Vittles and Drink for the Man Cave When we gather together in the Cave of Men, typically in a basement or garage, we enjoy magnanimous vittles. Food that is truly fit for a king, amidst our comradery. However, as cave men, we also have a penchant for foods that are strongly scented and robustly flavored. Food that can change our lives and make us better humans, such as Brooklyn Lager, anchovies, and a hot jalapeno. Brooklyn Lager...

Review of the Rogue River 80lb-Draw Mini-Crossbow Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆☆ (6 Stars – good) Mini-Crossbows, also known as Pistol Crossbows, have been around for decades. Barnett and other manufacturers have offered various models for hunters as well as for target shooters. I first became interested in the Mini-Crossbows many years ago when a friend, a good ole country boy, had one for protection in the house that we rented together. In...
