Time off from work means Craigslist time

Since I have off from work for almost two weeks, I’ve been cleaning out my basement, garage, and storage up in my bedroom area. Now my living room is full of items I been meaning to sell. Most of the stuff is or has been listed on Craigslist. Some items like my baseball card  and stamp collection from the mid to late 80s will be taken to local shops to see what I can get for them. This is all monies that will be dumped into a hopefully iEverything upgrade spending spree by the end of the year. So far an old 27″ TV and a DVD player went immediately.

The other items I posted is/are disc golf bag and discs, Hoegaarden beer light, Becks beer light, Budweiser holiday steins, 23″ electric fireplace, Xbox 360 games, Wii games, printer and scanner, and a weed wacker.

I also have some autographed LP posters of Bad Company and some other bands around here somewhere.

Interested in anything let me know.

Thanksgiving Mishap

Ah the holidays are always fun. It’s never a completed holiday without family crying, fire, fights, and/or disaster in the kitchen. Luckily, this year there was only one of the four in my Thanksgiving. We had a second turkey dinner on Saturday for my in-laws. I woke up early to prep the 14lb bord and preheat the oven. I set the oven and cleaned out the turkey. Ten minutes go by and I notice the oven still says 100 degrees. That doesn’t look right. The oven was still room temperature…joy.

So, 7 in the morning I am tearing apart my oven looking at wiring and a starter. I finally figured out what was wrong and got the part out that needed to be replaced. The hunt begins for the part. After calling 5 appliance part stores, no one carries the part and I had to order it. Now I have my in-laws heading into town, a 14lb bird, and no oven.

Time to put my grilling skills to the test. I decided to grill the bird whole. I placed it in the roasting pan and poured a can of beer in and covered it with aluminum foil. Three and a half hours on low heat and the meat was falling off the bones. The best turkey I’ve had. Luckily, everything came out alright and it looks like grilling the turkey is our new Thanksgiving tradition.

Yuengling Pounder Cans of Lager

Its a full 16oz of yum. Found out that a beer store by work is carrying pounder cans of Yuengling Lager and Yuengling Black and Tan. The extra 4 ozs. is enough to make me pay the extra $3. Especially since overall that is 96 extra ounces which is the same as 8 extra beers in a case.

Now all I need to do is find someone who sell the 22 oz bottles by the case and I will be in heaven.

I’ve got plenty of beer for the upcoming 4/20.
