That first batch of ginger beer came out real nice. I borrowed this photo from the site that I got the recipes from, if you click the title above it will take you there and you can learn how to make some yourself. It is crisp and bubbly with a nice strong ginger and lime flavor, the alcohol content was low, less than 1%, so kids could drink it and it was homemade. This type of beverage is not intended to be an alcohol libation. I have since made more and as of today I am making my most "gingery" one of them all, I hope this has a lot of bite. I am also making a "mead" type beverage that will sit for a couple of months to ferment, this one should pack a punch.

These are two bottles of "brew" I am currently making. The one on the right is not creating as much pressure as the one on the left so I am going to stop its fermentation process and refrigerate it so I can test what it is doing. It should be sweet and gingery with no alcohol. The one on the left I am going to try and shelf it for a couple of months so that its alcohol content can increase....we will see.

It is supposed to be hotter than blazes today, and I believe it. My modem went out from Friday morning until Sunday and when I went to the cable place to replace it on Saturday I wasn't the only one. But I dont know if that fixed it or not since it still took another day for it to engage, my guess - not the modem. One of my planter boxes, the one in the front window, was blown off by the strong winds on Friday and I lost all of my lovely bean stalks. Not much to say right now I will check in later.

This is one of the pointy things I found along the banks of the East River in Manhattan, I also found the same thing on the beach in Coney Island. What is it????

I forgot to snap some shots of the fireworks, I can see fireworks from both the front and the back windows in my apartment...oh well.
