This post and the last are a bookshelf speaker comparison that my spouse wrote based on the two of us sitting down for hours with a standardized set of recordings to come up with these comments. These comparisons were originally posted to AudioKarma, but I would like to share them with others who might be interested.
Random Tasks, Random Thoughts
This post and the next are a bookshelf speaker comparison that my spouse wrote based on the two of us sitting down for hours with a standardized set of recordings to come up with these comments.

In this second part or my gin-tasting series, I continue the quest of trying to decide what it is and try to decide if I actually like it.
Recently, I attended the MAC (Midwest Audio Club) DIY (Do It Yourself) event in Ankeny, Iowa. These events run across the Midwest, by the way.
I just finished eating a pie from The Pie King. It was a worthwhile consumption of calories, and I’m pleased to be able to tell you about it.
Making gin at home was my latest venture. As a serial hobbyist, I’ll just tell you that it’s neither as hard nor as easy as you might initially think.
Buzzed Bee Meadery is one place to visit for anyone who wants a genuine craft experience. They ferment, bottle and sell – all right on-site.
I’ve not lived long in what I think is called Western Central Iowa. Every once in a while, I try to discover the unique things this region has to offer. My latest forays aren’t strictly part of Western Central Iowa, necessarily, but have tended toward beverages. Let me tell you about three of them from my Iowa coffee, tea, liquor adventure.
In the last post, I talked about how you can do your own tasting. In this post, I’ll give one example where my spouse and I created our own tasting. Basically, we wanted to answer this question: “What does gin really taste like?”
When you want to learn more about a food or beverage, one way to accomplish that is to attend tastings. There are many wine tastings, beer tastings, spirit tastings, and tastings of various food items. However, some of you don’t live in areas that offer these events. Also, some of you either can’t afford to attend these or want to create your own event with your own spin.
