Quest for a better beer

I have been trying some new beers since i can't get my favorite, Honey Moon, until summer. I have stumbled across four that are quite tasty; one on recommendation from a friend, one on recommendation from the awesome beer/wine guy at HEB, one by accident, and one out of necessity.

The Pyramid Apricot Weizen has a delicious fruity taste but it's not sweet.

Landshark looks like Corona, but is oh so smooth. No lime needed, but it's good with one anyway.

Full Moon is a rich, hearty beer. Good, but I can only drink one.
Shiner Blonde is a tasty, lighter beer.

Recently told we are no fun to hang out with because we are too "serious". You want serious? You got it.


Problem: Painting projects finished at my house

Solution: Start painting my parent's house

Orthodontic News

In July I finally got braces. What i thought was going to be a pretty simple process has turned into so much more. At the end of my two years of wearing braces i am getting three different surgeries. One, to expand my upper palate. Two, to straighten my upper jaw. And three, to pull my lower jaw forward.

As if this isn't bad enough, i was also told i have a tongue thrust and would have to wear an orthodontic device called a tongue crib. Or worse, tongue spikes. These keep the tongue in the right place when talking, swallowing, or just at rest. Sounds very medievel-torture-device to me...
Luckily, i visited with a speech therapist Thursday morning and found out my tongue problems can be cured with therapy only. No metal cage or spikes in my mouth!
