Last tuesday, Jon and I started our first batch of mead, adapting a recipe from Storm the Castle.

"They never tell you how they all shit them selves, They don't put that part in the songs... stupid boy. Now the Tarlys bend there knee like everyone else. He could have lingered on the edge of the battle with the smart boys and today his wife would be making him miserable his sons would be ingrates and he'd be waking three times in the night to piss into a bowl.

  • nutmeg
  • honey
  • cloves

Back from my 2.5 year stint in Asia/Thailand, which was capped with a fantastic family trip to Bhutan. Can’t wait to go back.
