As to the diet Pepsi, yeah, I know, not good, but I can't stand coffee. Need my caffeine.

I used to drink a LOT of coffee when I was working 7+ years ago.  CPAP helped eliminated that need.  So I switched to green tea.  You can get some potent teas if you really need the caffeine but want to be rid of soda.  I do like coffee at times but I drink maybe 2 or 3 cups a year now.
Ahh, you finally got sleep. Something most take for granted. Good for you!
Yeah, me bride sometimes makes a green tea/lemonade that's pretty good, but I miss the carbonation. Something about the throat I guess...... I do take green tea capsules though. It's really good for you.

Which one should I imbibe first.......🤔
I know canned beer is almost a sin, but the 2 on the right were a donation to my cause. The one that @Raider Bill and some others were recommending was also only available in cans, so i know this won't be an honest test, but it will be depleted none the less.....

No way to know that until youve finished all three. Then you can start over in the correct order.

Update on arm. Arm feels good. Ring finger is stiff. Kinda sore. Little bit numb. Skin is all rough on the hand where it was swollen.

Sounds like healing is going good.  The nerves take time to heal, like 6 months to year.   

If you like Ultra, which I do drink it at times too, the Voo Doo Ranger will be quite a change!  I do enjoy IPA's and the hoppy flavor.

It may be, but beer for me anyways tastes better in a bottle. But i'll have one tonight I think of the 3, so we'll see.

Poured the outside apron today. Estimated 6.2 yards. I think we came pretty close on how much we mixed based on what's left....... thumbs-up

For some reason, I'm just amazed and fascinated by that method of mixing concrete.  Never seen it before it showed up in this thread.

Looks good.

Thanks!
It's pretty easy really. 
Lay down your rock 
Half of your portland
Your sand 
Rest of your portland
Mix well
Spread it out
Water it all over to just before the water runs off of the pile
Mix well
Repeat until you get the slump you want.

Kinda a nice pic of the entrance where we poured the crete. Those gas 
lights actually flicker.

And the winner is........


















I don't know how anyone could drink that stuff on the right. I'm not even sure it's beer. As far as I know, it could be battery acid. Ick. Ick. Ick.
