Well, all in all it was a good day for me.  With no disrespect meant =
(only
perhaps a sense of perspective), I did not get Dengue fever nor did I =
have
the pleasure of having the police enter my home and take all of my
belongings.  However, I did have the following happen:
 
1.    Burned my eyebrow with a flying bean.  Note to self:  wear goggles
when looking in your popper!
 
2.    Decided I can't wait for coffee in the morning.  So ground some
Guatamalan organic and prepped the coffee maker for 4:30 in the aye emm. =
 (I
know this is a mortal sin, and I will drink a cup of Sanka as an act of
contrition.)
 
3.    I turned another year older on what turned out to be quite a =
feisty
day on the list.
 
4.    I'm going to watch "The Exorcist" while enjoying a cup of tea with =
my
faithful four-legged friend.  The only sin here is the bad name the =
movie
gave to pea soup.  IMHO, anyway.  :)
 
It's really wonderful that this is such a lively list with some real =
give
and take.  My sincere best wishes for quick recoveries to both John and
Ginny.

Happy Birthday Brent,
I really think you should have some Postum for the pre-grind for the AM brew!  This is a great list, coffee and conversation!

Brent,
Sounds like it was a pretty good day overall, roasted eyebrow
notwithstanding.
One tip for your morning coffee:  Krups makes a pretty good grind'n'brew
coffee maker.  We stopped using ours when the ever-indulgent wife got me a
super-auto machine, but it's still good.  The Krups one actually uses a
whirly blade grinder but gets a pretty good grind out of it with an unusual
trick - the bottom of the grind chamber is a plate with holes of the size
they want the coffee 'ground' to.  As soon as a bit gets whacked loose
that's small enough, it falls down into the brew basket.  Cuts down on the
dust tremendously.  The Krupps unit also self-cleans the grinder area during
the brew cycle.
Makes a pretty good alarm clock too - the grinder just runs for a set time
(50 seconds) so it winds up sounding like a siren by the end.  Wakes you up
and has coffee ready by the time you stumble out.
And you can *really* taste the difference between 'ground & brewed' and
'ground, sat more than 15 minutes and brewed'.
Enjoy!
