I, of course mistakenly, blame Adubya for this as he is the one that talked me into this once outstanding TV. I mean, five color wheels instead of the typical three! Totally beautiful color . . . . until now.
So I was forced to contact Mitsubishi ("mitsu" meaning "three" and "hishi" meaning "water caltrop" . . .WTF? - also Mitsubishi was the manufacture of the Japanese Zero in WWII). Mitsubishi stands for "three water chestnuts"?
ANYWAY - it SEEMS the bulbs go out rather frequently since ordering one was so FREAKING easy. Only cost $250. Adubya (who had his bulb go out a few months ago) said they are easy to install.
Remember HBO's biggest Bone Head Blunder show Deadwood? The greatest TV show ever until they canceled it with one episode to go? And then they PROMISED people there would be a final wrap-up movie? But it never happened? People were obsessed with that show, as much as the Sopranos. Totally screwed HBO watchers and I canceled HBO when they canceled Deadwood.
ANYWAY - there was a scene when Bullock and his wife were in their house watching "TV" but since there was no TV back then . . . .the chairs were in front of a window.
This is what my life has become.
I have had some great success in beer lately. A Sassy cow Milk Stout that is great. A wonderful IPA which will become my FIRST house beer. A messed up Columbus Carriage Classic II that is mellowing out very nicely (I forgot 2 lbs of barley).
Here is a photo of my IPA. Mine is on the left (with a gulp out of it) and the beer I tried to imitate is on the right.
For Christmas I got a freakishly huge propane burner for doing full boils in the garage. All I need is a chiller now! My birthday is coming up in a month :-)
Have a wonderful Tuesday - I think I saw a bird outside - EXCITEMENT!!
