We are constantly forcing DD to drink water. She is probably sick of hearing us tell her to drink her water but it's what we have to do. We try to get her to drink 40 oz of water and 16oz of milk a day.
Glad to hear both girls are doing well. My brother in law basically only has the use of one kidney. He was born with on kidney covered in cysts. He has lived a "normal" life with only one kidney and only had to protect that area when playing sports. He tells me that it dosent bother him really, I think the other one has compensated for the one that is not working right.

Water is definitely a good thing, I try to explain to brother in law that beer is not really the same as water.

I have one child who would drink anything - milk, water, soda, tea if we let her. The other child only drinks water or lemonade.

Spend too much money on bourbon? I don't understand that.

Youngest dd asked me to post on Dis Dads. Apparently, they know I spend a lot of time here.



Oldest dd and DW went to a school field trip. They left at 5:00 AM and are still not back. They went to some farm or Amish settlement 4 hours away. Apparently, someone at school gets a kickback from this, because he have working Amish farms about 30 miles away from my house.

Anyway, so while they are gone, I took youngest dd on a date with me to the bourbon bar. Well, not the bar but the restaurant upstairs. Since I doped up on flexeril and prednisone, I decided to skip the bourbon. We had a nice meal - cheese & fruit appetizer, steak, and club sandwich. I ordered the sandwich, thinking she wouldn't like the steak, and would eat the bacon and turkey. She loved the steak (filet) and ate 6 ounces of steak and my French fries. I guess she is going through a growth spurt. Then, we split a chocolate cake for dessert and took a walk along the riverfront and she played on the playground down three.

I had a great evening. It's time to put her to bed and get ready for the marathon weekend of soccer.

Nothing right now. They are agressively going for American Craft right now, so who knows? Closest we have right now is 4-5 brands of Shipyard from Maine.
Right now I am loving a "Autumn Harvest Pack from Mill Street, a Toronto Micro/Brewpub. Has both an Oktoberfest marzen anda Pumpkin Ale, both realy good beers. Brooklyn Pumpkin doing well toocan;t wait for the chocolate stout to pop up soon.

Morning guys...


Another day of being in charge...will spend the morning in the back, waiting for the "truck" to pull up. This'll make load #3 in a row for me, but it beats running cash all day. Going to try to blow through the skids quick this morning, I do really want to be on the sales floor this afternoon interacting with my premium beer customers.

I think tonight's plan is going to see Finding Nemo 3D afterwards, and possibly Mandarin for chinese buffet afterwards.

I'm Back!!!

About 5 months ago I got called into a meeting to discuss my team, when I got there I had an HR rep waiting for me to tell me they were letting me go and escort me from the building. It wasn't performance related or anything, they were just reorganizing the department. Since then, they have let over 150 people go so at least I know it wasn't me. Rumor is the company is up for sale and they wanted to make it look good on paper by cutting salaries.

So anyways, I decided that until I was working I would stay off Dis and most of my other online activities until I was working again. I didn't want to be too comfortable being at home and force myself to focus on looking for work.

I started my new position this week! I'll be managing a team who does IT support for Gulfstream Aerospace.
