You lost me here.

I picked up a couple of bottles of hot sauce while in Brooklyn and found another bottle for my next purchase; they were sampling a half dozen varieties and one, though pretty damn hot (ghost and scotch bonnet, IIRC), was super tasty.

The super tasty and very hot sauce that I just mentioned was from Canadia. Go figure.

One of three kinds, but certainly the most interesting.

I feel like hot sauce is going through a boom like craft beer did (before getting stuck on endless IPAs). I'm here for it.

Yes and it's been going on for quite a while. Beer got silly and strange years ago, starting with the over-hopped IPA and Belgian styles, both of which are a real chore to drink.

Or, why I don't look forward to having to move someplace humid when I retire.

Where were you in Brooklyn? I really like the parts I have been to. Should be back in Downtown and Brooklyn Heights in two weeks.

Was in Greenpoint several years ago. Traditionally had a large Polish population. Many businesses had signs in Polish.

I don't like the look of porches, particularly that style, but they are useful now and then.

I know. Try to find a nice, chewy Porter these days. Anchor makes one, but nobody stocks it. Biggest problem in the beer market seems to be balance - there's more to life than IPAs.

It's a place called Heatonist, I think that it's in Williamsburg, but close to Greenpoint. Little shop, nothing but hot sauce. They provide/sell all of the sauces on Hot Ones. It's a 15 min bike ride from BK Heights.

MN can get humid, but this is next level.

I wouldn't be surprised to see the IPA gravy train run out of steam very soon. I enjoyed it for a while, and I still get in the mood for one now and then, but it's become so one-note that I don't know where else it can go.

It's a good note, long overdue IMO. For years I've been settling for Heiniken, Dos Equis, Paulaner, Mother's Milk, etc. trying to find something hearty and robust flavor-wise. Can't stand weak, dishwater beers. I love that I can now go into almost any bar and find at least one hoppy offering. One out of 8 or 10 isn't asking too much.

No clue. Is that a Germanic offshoot?

Yes and amazingly close to English.

Oh, definitely - I'm grateful for how it's driven the market and I'm glad that, now, there are always options other than water-substitute beers. I just think that there has to be movement away from the super-saturated IPA market - a lot of breweries offer several IPAs, most without much to distinguish one from another.

I think that people are still looking for a punch in the mouth, though, which is why I see sours taking off. Maybe things will swing back to stuff like super clean pilsners, like a generational palette cleanser, after the next wave of flavor assault.

My ride this morning started with light rain and overcast skies. However, It wasn't until the rain stopped and the sun came out that I got thoroughly soaked.

I mowed until it started raining and the grass got too wet, No water breaks.

Meaningless without knowing your average speed and, along those lines, Strava or it didn't happen.

From Luther you have pretty easy access to the Zim and Washington County empty roads are close proximity. Canít recommend it enough.

Bolded ain't happening, but I'm curious - is that a school zone issue or a traffic safety issue? And what exactly is the East Line speedway? I don't see it on the map.

I'll look at Washington County. One thing to keep in mind is while house space is good, we're very willing to pay to get acreage as well; the big appeal of the second and third houses are that they sit on several acres, with few neighbors even outside of that. Remember, I was the one who wanted a moat, but I'll settle for a thick forest.

Glad I could clear that up.

And all I care about is the kitchen. The porch might be nice, but I'm used to them being just for show down here. It's either oppressively hot or arctic, and anyway it's loud outside. Might be different there; AG"s parents in Scotia have a lovely backyard porch.

And while languages are on the brain, "yard" and "garden" have the same root, shared with "earth".
