I am still at the bottom of a deep dark trench blanketed with fear and pain so no time or liberty to post anything substantial.

The only thing to mention is that a couple of experimental beers are to be appearing at the Chelmsford Beer Festival. They are the blog brew Honey, Ginger and Oat Strong Ale and Petite Massive. The Petite Massive is a lower ABV (6%) version of my bottled barley wine Massive Ale. Not all that petite but more petite than the original.

If you go I hope that you enjoy them.

You are a brutal brewing machine!

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest! if you must; but don't you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up, though the pace seems slow;
You might succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor's cup.
And he learned too late, when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out;
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt;
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit;
It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit.

Life is indeed queer.
