Chickens Are Scarier Than Crows, Didn't You Know?

The garden is in! 

If our Scarechicken does its job, we will soon have a nice crop of heirloom tomatoes, onions, hot peppers, green beans, basil, parsley and thyme!

Huge thanks to my parents for their help getting the area ready. It was a jungle!

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!

DIY Wort Chiller

We here at Curious Souls H.Q. are always looking for ways to save a buck or two. So, when shopping around online for a wort chiller for home brewing, we found the following prices:

$65 @ Midwest (plus shipping)$70 @ Northern (plus shipping)$39 @ Amazon (plus shipping)So, off to the hardware store... 3/8" (internal diameter) Vinyl Tubing (10 feet) = $4.15Sink to hose adapter (varies based on your type of sink) = $4.793/8" X 20' Copper Tubing = $24.13Vinyl Hose Coupler = $2.49Hose clamps (x2)  = $1.70Band-aids (x2 or x3 or x4) = $1.00For a total of $38.26 (pre-tax, no shipping), we decided to roll our own.
Here's how it went down...

And, of course, there is the joy of having made something all by yourself! Priceless & fun!
