All is well in the world of Jeff and Lisa... They girls at work totally had a reality check and are doing very well... They all have good attitudes and it's basically a love fest down there... YAY! It's about time too... Lis and I have been doing a ton of yard work since the weather has been in the 80's... We love yard work so it's a good thing... There is an ass load of dead things out there since we had that terrible freeze... Cut, pull, yank and throw has been our theme song the past few weeks... hehehe...

i really dont mind the doo doo smell really, what i do mind is the pepper-urine-ass smell of cheap perfumes and tragic men's cologne like axe and bod man :puke: i would take the smell of manure over that any day ;)

To be honest, I'm right there with you if I had to compare the two... No cologne for this boy... No thank you! The poo does get to me after a while though... Oh well, it's only for a short time... I remember going to a town that had a paper mill in it and it stunk 24/7... They said they where used to it but as an outsider, the stench was incredible... Then of course we have our ‘wonderful’ rendering plant... Blaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!! Every time I pass that thing I roll up the windows and turn off any vent and even after that, it still makes its way inside...

I bet if you lived near the brewery it would get annoying but I have to say for myself; I like that yeasty smell of the wert stage in the brewing process... I only get it in small doses though so that may be the reason I still enjoy that smell... Mmmm beeeeer...

i do love beer. I am a big fan of pilsner, but not like budweiser. Had some amazing pilsner in Prague and Amsterdam. great wheat beer in A'dam too.

Me too! I feel the same way about pilsners and I don't count the buds out there either... Have you tried Sierra Nevada's Best Bitter? You have to next time you are in the brewery... It's divine!
