Excuse me, Tootie-buddies. I have to go lie down in bed so as to make it easier for my cats to walk all over me. Good night, and pleasant dreams
Good morning, tootie buddies. Have an awesome day!

A lot has been said recently about the White House doctor giving Donald Trump a squeaky clean bill of physical and mental health.
As if it isn't the White House doctor's job were he to do anything else.
Does anyone remember back when Ronald Reagan kept getting glowing reports, even as his brain was obviously dissolving?

We still haven't heard anything directly, but there's this brewbound.com post from Friday:
The post above mentions the owner's financial woes. Funny how no one ever thinks about the workers, their families, and their financial concerns.
I worry even while I'm asleep.

This is interesting
Not sure whether this means anything as far as MendoBrew is concerned, but it does concern MendoBrew's owner.
In other news, the January 17th deadline has come and gone, with no word. :( If it were good news, we'd have heard something by now
Good morning, tootie-buddies!

There has been no more local/regional news since this Jan 12th article in the Santa Rosa Press Democrat:
This is pretty weird. Our town has a daily paper, but nary a peep about the sudden layoffs and closure of a large business.
From the opposite side of the country, we finally heard some news about MendoBrew's sister brewery, which also closed:
Employment, MendoBrew Show more
So at my job yesterday, the owner said she was sorry about my husband being laid off. I said thanks. Then she started asking questions like whether we'd be all right, and if we had enough money, and hey I just don't know. This changes everything for us. Plus the US Economy is not very forgiving to people with even a short string of bad luck.
Today my husband is on a fact finding mission at the EDD offices.

I know my life is kind of chaotic right now, and I don't want to bring anyone down. Here is a short guide to CWs I will be using:
Employment: mine and my husband's, since his layoff notice last Friday.
MendoBrew: Anything regarding Mendocino Brewing company, where my husband worked for the last 13 years, and the reason why we moved to Ukiah.
Anxious: My concerns about things.
USPol: The usual shit show
No CW: Photos, cats, photos of cats, and good news
Good night, my tootie-buddies! Dream sweet dreams of smashing the patriarchy! ❤️
Good morning, Tootiee-buddies! I can't tell you how amazing you all are, especially those of you with suggestions and encouragement. Thank you so much 💗
So far I've:
1) read a bit about coops (thanks, @tbeckett)
2) sent an email to blackstar.coop (thanks, @edebill
3) gotten past my bitterness enough to remember that I am a member of a coop, where we buy food ukiahcoop.com
Thank you everyone for replying and boosting and in general being empathetic and encouraging.
Here's the Santa Rosa Press Democrat's lukewarm take on the closure of the Mendocino Brewing Company and its tap room:
Rather disappointingly, the article does not explore how large the owner has been living while a fugitive from justice.
Please note this is a serious plea for help:
I am currently drinking one of the world's last Blue Heron pale ales
Hey, so my husband got his lay-off notice today. He was the brewer at Mendocino Brewing Company.
Do any of you socialists know how to put together a worker's coop? Because it is absolutely ridiculous that the brewery is standing on one side of a locked door, and everyone who knows how to brew and bottle beer is on the other.
