Gravity Head Journal: Fourth Thursday report from the front.

March is finished, warmer weather has brightened the days this week, and as expected, Gravity Head progress has slowed.

Gravity fatigue sets in each year, so it isn't a surprise.

We're 18 business days into Gravity Head 2005, and there are only eight beers yet to be tapped, and here is the way it stands as of 5:00 p.m. today.
