Patio Weather
RobertLove

As it warms to spring-like conditions, it is time to start reflecting on the greatness that is patio weather. We have it more than other places, but there are some days that it's just so perfect that you don't want it to end. That being said, make sure you check out your favorite patio this weekend, as it will be perfect weather for hanging out there. Speaking of the weather, we have had some relatively warm days lately that I have tried to make best use of. As you likely know, I spent some time working on a raised bed last weekend and will be trying to finish it up this weekend and get some stuff in the ground. I'm super excited about it. I have cleared all my pots from last

On the Playing Surface
RobertLove

Lots going on right now. Quiz was great. Laser is up and running. Working on replacing the laser bed. The one that came on it worked okay, but the new one will likely be much better. I'm replacing the old one with an expanded steel bed that will provide better support and a better surface to work from. Anyways, quiz time! Tonight's quiz was a good one. Lots of competition for both those beers and the gift certificates. Those teams taking home some free beer in their bellies were: Deer Lady, Inc.; Our Team Name is in Another Castle; CWA; and My So Called Judge. I hope you all enjoyed those tasty beverages! As

Pew Pew Pew
RobertLove

Got an ingraving laser today. Really looking forward to working with it to see what all we can do. Has a smallish print bed, but I think we'll make due. I think that we will start with coasters and go from there to see what else we can make! I will keep you all updated about the progress that we make in the future! Okay, so tonight's quiz was a good one, but we had a couple of things we need to work through. Some we can fix, others we just have to take in stride. So, let's think about what happened and come back better next week! Tonight's quiz was quite the doozy. Tough questions all around, including the bonuses. But, you're all very smart and we did get to hand out some

Busy Night!
RobertLove

Tonight's quiz was the busiest yet here at Bison Witches. We had eleven teams joining us! Woot! So, like I said, lots of participation, which, tonight, turned into lots of competition. What this means is at the end of the night we had a FOUR-WAY TIE!!! Yes, you heard me. Four-way tie. All in good fun though. After a good tie-breaker, we ended the night with Pulling Out is for Couches taking home the $25 Bison Witches gift certificate and Finished Glass Ceiling, Working on the Wall winning the $10 Bison Witches gift certificate. Make sure to spend those wisely. Those teams who got to take home some free beer in their

Beer Here!
RobertLove

I am known to enjoy a tasty, malt-based beverage from time to time. I have spent a while deciding what is good, what is bad, and what is just middle of the road for my taste, but have found that there is always an overriding order to my tastes. Here are my favorite beers in order: Free BeerCold BeerAll other beers While I mostly drink, and tend to enjoy more, craft beers, I still feel that there is a place for your standard mass produced beers. Out mowing the lawn on a Sunday? Not going to get your All Day. Here's a Coor's Banquet for ya. And, while most often I would seek out craft alternatives for the standard-bearers,

Appreciation
RobertLove

Had a scare with a family member before the quiz yesterday, but it ended up not being too serious. We are still waiting to hear some new information, but it seems like some good news for now. With that, don't forget to let others know how much you appreciate them. With that, I want to thank all of you who come out and play with us. I know that there have been threats of inclement weather, holidays, etc that have sometimes interfered with our fun, but after nearly four months of our quiz, we're building the the numbers and seeing more and more regulars. I hope you all are having fun, as I am having quite a bit of it. Now, let's dispense with all the sappiness. On to our Quiz! Tonight's

Let It Snow
RobertLove

Snow is in the forecast for Thursday night, so let's get it! I am writing this on Thursday morning, so I know that we have gotten about 3-4 inches of snow through the night and that the temperature is really damn cold. Any of you that had to work today, make sure you stay safe out on the roads. Give yourself extra time and don't rush. Accidents aren't worth it. I had the opportunity to go skiing this weekend, but decided it would be best to stay home this time. I'm a little upset about that decision, but know that it was the smarter decision. Taos got 4 to 5 inches of snow overnight, so if you're in the area, go enjoy that pow. Let's move onto the quiz. Tonight's quiz was a

A Great End to the Year
RobertLove

This year has had many ups and downs, but we have persevered through it. Our quiz is just over three months old at this time, but is still doing great. We have had some fluctuations in teams numbers, but everyone is kicking it in and making it happen! We will carry this momentum over to the new year. Speaking of, let's talk about the amateur hour that is New Years. Any of you ever watch How I Met Your Mother? Well, that's pretty much my opinion of how New Years generally goes. Grand plans with friends that end up all just falling apart or going to shit. Not to say it isn't a good time to get together and say hello to a new year, but often the grand plans are ruined. With that, be safe

What a Night!
RobertLove

Good night for a quiz! Lots of great questions and some tough competition. The winners of some free rounds of beer tonight were: Ho Ho Hos; Ghost of Joe Mixon's Dignity; Deez Nuts Roasting on an Open Fire; and War on Peace. I hope you all enjoyed those free beers. My favorite flavor of beer. My order goes: free beer, cold beer, and then all other beers. I think you will all agree with me if you really think about it. Our quiz was a tough one tonight with a lot of competition. After all was said and done, though, we can only have two winners. Our winners tonight were the Ho Ho Hos and the Ghost

What to Write Today
RobertLove

So, I have been thinking about the quiz and what I wanted to talk about today, but still am not coming up with anything too great, so let's start the writing exercise! Let's see, I think that the President-Elect's selection of Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to head the EPA is dubious. Pruitt is an ardent climate-change denier, which I guess is cool, but probably not the best person to be running the organization that will be responsible for national policy on emissions and the environment. We will see though. I tend to be a serial optimist, so I am hoping that the changes in policy will not hinder the momentum of companies like Tesla. Speaking of Tesla, I find it interesting

Liars Gonna Lie
RobertLove

I work with students for my primary job. I know that most of them are often well-intentioned, while others are blatantly dishonest with you. This really goes for people in general, but as this is the example that I have, I am going to talk about it. I have a student that has been really trying for the second half of the semester, or so, and I was feeling confident about the progress that they were making. Until Thursday. They came in, informed me that they were not doing too well in the class and that it was due to something that our department had done. This was very disturbing to me, as our job is to help the students who come to see us. As this student had been generally

The First Quiz of December
RobertLove

So it's finally the last month of the year. This time of year is great, but would be better if Oklahoma had a real reason to be cold. Here it just gets cold to be cold. Sucks. Nothing exciting to do like skiing, skating, or any other cold-weather outdoor activities. I suppose that occasionally it gets cold enough to allow for skating on some ponds around the area, but that happens very rarely. It will just get cold enough to make everything miserable. The cold, coupled with the wind make this time of year much better for staying indoors and finding things to do in there. However, I am looking forward to brewing some this winter. There are fewer infection-causing organisms about and

A Fiery Start to the Day
RobertLove

This morning I get a phone call from my brother, who is also my roommate, around 10:15. I am busy doing something at work, so I decline the call. I call him back about 10 minutes later and he's kind of freaking out. He tells me that the tree in our backyard has finally given up the ghost and dropped a huge "limb". I say "limb" because it's actually about 16 inches in diameter, so not really a limb... This limb proceeded to fall to the north (strong southern winds yesterday) onto the power lines that run directly behind our back fence. The power lines are obviously no match for this damn tree falling on them so they snap and the whole mess falls to the ground. The fun thing about power

Lots of Changes
RobertLove

Apparently there was this election thing that happened on Tuesday. I kid. I knew it was happening. In fact, I got to go wait in line for an hour last Friday to vote early. Good times. Anyways, there were a number of things on the ballot, including a number of state questions. Many were approved and many were not. With these, we will see changes to the way that beer and wine are sold as well as distributed. We will see changes to the penalty system surrounding drug possession and an increase in the property damage that classifies felonies. The money projected to be saved through these changes will be applied to mental health and rehabilitation services throughout the state. We will

Limited Edition Brews
RobertLove

Lots of great beers lately. The other day I dropped a friend at the airport and since I was already up there, I decided to drop by Coop Ale Works and grab some beers. I had a habanero variant of one of their dark beers, but I don't remember which one it was. Very good and the spiciness wasn't overpowering, which can happen in some spiced beers. Pretty tasty, even if I don't remember what it was called. I also picked up a crowler of one of their blood orange variants that was super good and refreshing (I believe it was an Elevator add-on). That beer was great after some cleaning up around the house. Nice orange flavor, but not cloying. I believe that it is all gone now, which is sad,

A Skookum Quiz
RobertLove

Fall weather has started to hit us lately, but it seems that there will be one last little sputter of summer coming next week, then it's time to move to cooler weather. I am looking forward to it. I like doing a lot of things outside, but hate doing them in the heat. I would rather be out building a goat pen in the snow than mowing when it's too damn hot. And yes, I have built a goat pen in the snow. So, what this means is that it will be time to really start brewing, changing to richer foods, and lazing around the house, watching tv and the like. Lately I have found a YouTube channel that I have really been enjoying. The premise is that the host disassembles tools and gadgets to see
