I tried Underberg at an East German restaurant in San Fransisco and found it very refreshing after a heavy meal.

Yeah, New Glarus is not available outside of WI. Another great WI brewery called Capital Brewery has a great maibock as well.

About 300 sq. ft. It was on the top floor of a small "Carriage House" built in 1895. It had a main room with a tiny hallway that had a tiny bathroom on one side and an alcove that opened up about chest high with a closet rod to hang clothes. The end of the hallway opened up to a little kitchen. The kitchen ceilings slanted down on each side so that I (a short person) could just stand with my head touching the ceiling when standing at the kitchen counter. I miss it so much!

I had some metal pots and wanted to add a drainage hole. I went to Ace to get the equipment and they offered to just drill the holes for me!

Granite would be 1000 times nicer than the two different shaded formica countertops in my apartment.

I just started buying cat food from a local store that sells their locally made pet food in bulk. The ingredients and formula are really high quality and it is about the same price as IAMS. My cats seem to get more full on less of it and have lost their bellies.

I got one of these as a gift and I thought it worked great. Once the soap runs out I plan to use it for liquid soap instead of a washcloth.

I made this last night and it was amazing. We sprinkled crumbled bacon on top per portrgirl's suggestion.

I stayed in an aloft hotel. They have very compact rooms. They aren't as gorgeous as Luxx but there is a door for the bathroom.

I'm on a budget and have been getting most of my dishware from thrift stores (goodwill, savers) like jess thrift. I'd say that's a pretty eco friendly option. For some reason, my guests always love my thrift store dishes and coffee mugs the best.

I used to have a top floor kitchen where the walls slanted down on both sides. I am short, so I was able to stand at the counter top fine, but my friends had issues and hit their heads a lot. When I moved in I hit my head on both sides of the room, one after another, but got used to where the ceilings were quickly after that :)

It did get pretty hot in the summer, but I put a box fan in the window (which was level with the kitchen floor).

I liked it. It felt cozy.
