re: The Radium Girls — still glowing in their coffins - wiltznucs on 5/9/17 at 10:12 am
I worked with Radioactive Materials for nearly 20 years. This is the usual case study for Radiation Biology and is certainly among the more fascinating incidents. Other good ones are the Marshall Islanders after the US atomic bomb testing in the Pacific. The US failed to consider wind direction ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: So we have the homebrew threads, but anyone ferment their own wine? - wiltznucs on 5/8/17 at 7:39 pm
I own Garagiste Meadery in Tampa, FL. We specialize in mead; but, we've been known to dabble in traditional table wines from time to time. Our first commercial offerings should be out there this Summer. FL distro only for the time being. Wine kits are pretty much fool proof as I mentioned ea...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: So we have the homebrew threads, but anyone ferment their own wine? - wiltznucs on 5/7/17 at 9:28 am
I've homebrewed a few, now I do it for a living and own a winery. Some great kits out there that have won numerous awards in reputable competitions. The only challenge with kits is that they are typically made to be fool proof. This often means the included yeast strain is a aggressive cham...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: If InBev bought Parish and MillerCoors bought Great Raft... - wiltznucs on 5/6/17 at 10:00 am
My issue with the buyouts is basically two parts. First is economic, the money that used to be generated was American and at least in theory was spent here. Now those profits and to some extent jobs flow to Europe and South Africa. The second is my belief that the logical endgame for ABInBe...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Which city has the best food in all of America? - wiltznucs on 4/30/17 at 12:15 pm
I love NOLA and think it does a wonderful job showcasing regional cuisine that simply isn't duplicated in any other corner of the world. Given its relative size, NOLA is quite impressive albeit a bit romanticized too. What NOLA lacks is variety. This is where NYC, San Fran, Chicago, Miami (I kn...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Kenmore Elite Refrigerator stopped Cooling - wiltznucs on 4/23/17 at 9:28 am
Just replaced our Kenmore fridge. Only six years old. Been loud as hell for the past two years. Had to replace the freezer coil, a thermostat and the French door seal in the past year to the tune of $1,200. Water and ice stopped working a week or two ago. Quote was another $300 to switch out an ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Gobbler question - wiltznucs on 4/14/17 at 9:28 am
It's a day to day thing. I hunted a WMA near Ocala a few weeks back for a few days. We literally didn't hear a gobble or see a Tom for the first two days. The third morning the woods came alive and I'm sure I heard no less than 10 gobblers that morning from where I stood. Don't let anyone disc...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: 100+ mug shots from Tampa Bay for the weekend of 3/25 - wiltznucs on 3/28/17 at 7:40 am
Tampa has its fair share of lunatics, no doubt about it. St Pete is worse. I've always theorized that FL's moderate climate attracts homeless and undesirables. That said, if this scares you try visiting the FL panhandle sometime. One of these folks could be the local Mayor up there. Tampa is a...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
