Let's Talk Politics.

No, we're not going to talk about corporate tax breaks or unions or health care. We're going to talk about something that hopefully everyone can agree on.

Yet another reason to love the City of Fort Collins came in the mail a few weeks ago...



Citizens of Fort Collins have proposed Preferential Voting!!!  Yay!

Ranked voting is a great way to give third-party and independent candidates a chance without the old "you're throwing away your vote" problem. Read more about the advantages using the link above or the link below.

Also, it is difficult to see in the picture, but our candidates don't have a little (R) or (D) behind their names. Guess what? You actually need to go research the candidates instead of voting straight down the party line. Great job, Fort Collins!

More info from those that put the initiative on the ballot.

I spy...

I was looking for directions on Google Maps today when I realized that Google had just added "birds-eye" views for Fort Collins. So, of course, I went to see what our home looks like. Much to my surprise, I found that Google just happened to catch us on the morning of March 29, 2012. Our moving day! So, you better think twice before deciding to run around naked in your back yard. You never know when the aerial photography plane is going to fly by!

What We See From Our Car Window

We will be back stateside tomorrow tonight which means we will have greater access to internet (via our phone) and can finally catch you all up on all of the fun we've been having in Canada and the northeast U.S.! Until then, I thought I would share some of what we have seen while driving. Not all of them, dear. What is blocked out?? And why block that thing out and keep "Variety"? Doesn't "Variety" imply that they are selling the thing that they blocked out? I'm so confused. Gas Bar. So many interpretations, all of them kind of weird.

Our latest DIY adventure... Homebrew!

After participating in a few different brewery tours around town, the Curious Souls wondered "how difficult can this brewing thing really be?" Today, with a few beers (for inspiration), a few friends, and an extract kit , we decided to try it out for ourselves. Enter (stage left) End of the World Brewing... ( Vid link for the iPhone impaired ) Easy, right? Just like making stew... or tea... or stewing tea... or something... And now, we wait (quite impatiently) for the little S. cervisiae to do their job.
