Does Pleasure Have Value?

When I am asked what I want for my birthday or for Christmas gifts, I always say “nothing.”  And I do mean it.  I’m not someone who really enjoys receiving gifts.  And from my own family, I don’t want people to spend money on something for me because they might feel obliged to have to give a gift.

As always, the story has a ‘But” coming in it.

Just trolling around at, I found this:


Heck, just the name alone makes me want it !!!

I know that this type of beer making device would not enable me to make quality micro brews, but gosh darn it !!!  It just sounds like a whole lot of fun (Fun for the entire family !!)

Should I drop some hints??
