Hi everyone!  Sorry I have not made many posts, but I do enjoy reading all of yours!
I'm an avid home roaster and I probably roast 3 pounds in an average week.  Anyway, I would like to share an announcement I have been making at CoffeeGeek and other online home roasting groups about putting together a new club:  
Yesterday through a stroke of good fortune I met a gentleman named Bob.  Bob owns a business roasting coffee and has a real passion for it.  I went to his place to buy a few pounds of green beans and he showed me around...
I was surprised to see that he has hundreds of thousands of pounds of green coffee beans there, 3 roasters, a flavoring laboratory, etc.  The largest of the 3 roasting machines has the capacity to roast 1200 pounds per hour.  That's TWELVE HUNDRED pounds per hour.  He is one of the largest specialty roasters in this part of the country and plans on expanding to include a complete packaging operation too.
Here's his website (hope it's not an infringement on this group, I buy from SweetMarias all the time too)  http://www.mitalenacoffee.com/index.htm   
Bob wants to share his passion and create a club for area roasters.  He envisions a group that gathers from time to time to cup coffees and share roasting blends and techniques.  He would host these gatherings at his place of business.   
I am very excited at this prospect and invite any and all interested to contact me at JonR10 .  If you could make it to Houston 3-6 times a year for a weekend afternoon then we could create a new and wonderful home roasters' community here. 
Bob will host monthly or bi-monthly meetings if we gather 20 people or more, so please contact me if you're interested in participating and learning more about coffee and roasting.

Hi again ALL,
 
I apologize for posting a link to a competitor.  If this has offended or annoyed anyone I deeply regret that.  I love SweetMaria's and I buy from them all the time (I just took delivery of another 8 pounds from them Friday).  They (and you all) have really helped me to develop as a roasting hobbiest and I am eternally grateful to you all.  
 
Anyway, I have removed the link and any commercial references.
 
The invitation to get together and talk coffee and tour a commercial roasting facility still stands.  My whole purpose was to promote a club for home roasters in Texas (and not to do any advertising).  So feel free to amil me!  JonR10
 
Again - I apologize for the impropriety of my previous post.

I wish I knew how to do that. That would be a real handy email 
technique, altering the content of email after people receive it.

Here's a few ideas for ya John...  ;-)
1. two words - "email hypnosis"  The Amazing Kreskin could do it
    I betcha.
2. Infect the entire list with a backdoor to a zombie/virus
    that awaits your commands!
3. Send each list member a pound of tom's greens as a bribe
    to delete all the evidence.
4. Hi-jack the offending site and point it to www.sweetmarias.com
hehe, sorry I couldn't resist a little humor..
