The Wolf Supports Woofs

The Wolf supports Woofs

I want to tell you about my good friends at Sunny Sky’s Animal Rescue, because if you are an animal lover you are going to love them!  These fine folks rescue dogs all up and down the west coast.  In fact, they have over 100 pure bred dogs ranging from Toy Poodles to Chihuahuas, Miniature Pinchers, and more!  And they also have over 100 mixed breeds and yes…they have kitties as well.  They currently have over 20 cats.  So why am I telling you about this amazing facility?  Because they may be losing their facility!  

Sunny Sky’s Animal Rescue is in danger of losing their temporary home, and the home of all their little furbabbies looking for furever homes!  So they are sending out an S.O.S (Save Our Shelter).  The S.O.S will be in the form of a fund raiser on December 9, 2012 at 5:30 pm.   They will be holding a silent auction, raffling off goodie bags, and someone even donated their car to be raffled off!  And it wouldn’t be a Holiday Party without Santa so they will also have a bake sale to lure him in from the North Pole!  Thank you for howling with The Wolf and please consider helping out the little howlers at Sunny Sky’s Animal Rescue.  If you can’t make it to the auction then please consider making a donation at

Wisdom from King Solomon
Solomon spends A LOT of time telling married men to refrain from cheating on their wife. And since we already discussed that we aren't going into detail today, but why is Solomon spending so much time on this subject? The answer is simply that it was a problem then and it is a problem today. What I want to say at this point is that at least 30 to 40% of the people reading this have cheated on their spouse. And you likely carry a lot of guilt, and the question may be what do you do with it? What do you do with the guilt of straying outside of your marriage?

First of all I think you have to seek forgiveness from the people you hurt, and then you need to figure out a way to forgive yourself. I have some very close friends who have had an affair, and the pain it has caused them and their spouse is without a doubt difficult to overcome. However, some of them have been able to repair the damage, and today have incredible marriages. Solomon warns us that when we cheat we will live the rest of our life with shame. Now, that isn't to say God wants you to live a life of means you will never forget it. My prayer for you, for all of us that have done things we deeply regret, is that we can find the peace of forgiveness and realize that our mistakes don't define our entire lives. You are not the sum of your hurts, habits, or hang-ups.

Thought for the day: Why not write down your top 10 biggest mistakes on a piece of paper and go in the backyard and burn it. Let the past go and don't forget that your mistakes don't have to define you.

New MicroBrew for You

My friend Joe Rovito and his crew have a brew for you, and it is coming soon.  Don't try to write that at home my friends...I'm a professional!

Taken from Seattle Beer News:

A new brewery has its sights set on Redmond and Eastside beer drinkers. Hi-Fi Brewing just started a lease at 14950 NE 95th St. They will now take on the task of planning and building their 15-bbl brewery and taproom with the expectation of opening in 2013.

The team of owners includes John and Cathy Carothers, Joe Rovito, and Ryan McGee. This group of homebrewers has been planning to go pro for a while, and much work has been done over the summer to get to this point. Their team isn’t complete quite yet, though. According to McGee, “Most of the brewing will be done by a stellar brewmaster we haven’t met yet. We all love beer and love to brew, but we want to bring some pro experience onto the team when we get closer to opening.”

They will plan to sell most of the beer out of the taproom to start, including growler sales, and they will explore distribution as things progress. They aren’t saying much about the styles they plan to brew at this point, but they did say we can expect to see a lager and a session beer in their core lineup. These are two styles they consider under-explored here in the region, and I couldn’t agree more.

Their location will be in the same neighborhood as Black Raven Brewing, so you’ll soon have two breweries in the same area to explore over that way.

Congrats to the Hi-Fi team on going pro! I look forward to watching the brewery grow.

More info about Hi-Fi Brewing:

We are Hi-Fi Brewing.

Hi-Fi Brewing produces authentic beers. Just as the high fidelity recording techniques developed in the 1960s aimed to recreate–as accurately as possible–the original live musical performance, Hi-Fi Brewing is dedicated to producing beers that are the truest expression of the brewer’s art. Each beer is a faithful rendition of the top-quality ingredients that make it and the passion of the brewing team. And we take advantage of the best technology available to do it.

Hi-Fi maintains the same philosophy through all aspects of its business. The way we treat our customers, our suppliers, our team, and our community is consistent with our approach to beer: integrity is paramount. Honesty and transparency naturally follow.

Authentic. Honest. True. Real. Hi-Fi.

We are Redmond’s next brewery.

Hi-Fi is located at 14950 NE 95th St. in Redmond. We officially have the space starting today (hooray!), which means it will be several months before we can open our doors to the public. We’re in the process now of working with our architect to design a great taproom.

We will pour a wide range of great beers.

Once that taproom is built, we’ll be pouring our starting lineup alongside beers from other fantastic Washington breweries. We know a lot of our customers will be like us – always interested in trying something new and interesting – so we’ll be doing a lot of seasonal and one-off brews.

We have a lot of work ahead of us.

Anyone interested in following along as we build out the space, install equipment, and get ready for our grand opening in 2013 can find us on Facebook:
