    Absolutely! As much as I haven't been a fan of Christmas recently, this year I had my two boys on Christmas eve to wake up Christmas morning and it was the best! First time in 5 years. I had such a fucking good time.
    2016 was a fucked up year - just got robbed again. Stole the car out of our garage while we were sleeping.

    Right system and you can set zones, so garage could be alarmed while you can move about the house

    It's fucking awful Paul. I just had the thought that the first one was exploratory. This is the same guys on the second one. Maybe, maybe not.

    Had locksmith change all the locks again yesterday - showed me how easy it is to break in if you dont key lock the door. If you think that little latch on the back of the door is locking the door....think again
    What to brew?? I have manged to get out of going to the Melb Show with MrsGrumpy and the grandkids and will have a day all to myself....BREWDAY!!!!

    Yep, that Tenich Dampfbier is a good suggestion for easy drinking. It'd be ready for steak night!

    Got the same problem. Moved offices the other week so it's improved slightly as I have a window behind me, but still have my supervisor sitting next to me and walking past every 10 minutes! It's a mad scramble to go back to something that looks like work

    Feeling chuffed. Brewed 3 kegs for a mates wedding on the weekend. They all came back empty and he tells me hardly any of the bottled beer he bought for the reception got drunk.

    Bummer, I was going to suggest "Ella Perle Galena"

    If I had a say in it she'd have been "Amarillo Galaxy"... if it was a boy, "Nelson Simcoe". But alas Grandparents getting bragging rights only...not naming rights
    PROCRASTINATION SUCKS – “mmm this APA is good – I should enter it into a comp. I should fill a bottle. Nah next time.” Damn keg blew last night – no bottle for Beerfest.
    I hate the fact that todays birthdays displays in order of registration and active members who make a valuable, or perhaps questionable, contribution are way down the page......just sayin'

    So, tell me how you got your name? ;)

    First grandson struggled to say "Grandpa" and it kept coming out as Grumpy. the name has stuck - I like it, and i have the attitude to go with it.
    Grandchild no.4 arrived last night. Welcome little Thomas - Mum and bubs doing well.
    GrumpyPaul
    GrumpyPaul
    No a bit more "Grumpy"...thats how I got the name. First grandchild couldnt say Grandpa - it came out as Grumpy
    DU99
    DU99
    Thats' what i get called also "grumpy"
    GrumpyPaul
    GrumpyPaul
    Thats so cool to hear DU99. I think it sounds so much cooler than Grandpa...and when my first grandghild was born 12 years ago I felt I was way too you to be called Grandpa.
    So Grumpy I became
    3 Double batches - 120l over two days. Wish I took a pic of those pairs of cubes lined up. It was like Grumpy's Ark...."The cubes came marching two by two HURRAH HARRAH"

    I luv that (apart from milling the grain)doubles take the same time as singles. I set the timer on the MLT to preheat the water so I could mash straight in once I got started.
    I also managed to do the list of chores left for me by MrsGrumpy when she left for work (clean the garage, couple of loads of washing and mop the floors).
    I was only about 20mins short of having it all done and cleaned up before she got home too.

    My son just offered to take me to the Richmond Final this weekend with him and my grandson. Which cool in itself. But to make it even cooler - my brother is taking my Dad and his son. So there will be 4 generations of Tiger supporters from my family at the MCG this week
