hey Mr. Martini Man, you around? a square? perhaps an oval! ginny
Yes, . Today I had a 911 type of emergency. I neglected to roast in preparation for my morning press pot and awoke to a coffeeless household. It doesn't really get much worse than this. Merry Christmas to you and yours.
100 CSA demerits for running out of coffee! Dr. Crema On Sat, 4 Dec 2004 14:47:09 -0800, alfred <2391> wrote: <Snip>
Yeah, that same thing can happen with vacqtion trips, too. You don't want to leave any good coffee to get stale while you're gone, but can't bear to have no homeroast ready when you get home. Which is a worse fate: leaving good coffee to go bad or waking up without coffee? Woe! How about this solution? Take your roaster along with you. Just gently explain to the wife that you have to put the gas grill and RK Drum in the back seat, and she'll have to put the propane tank under her feet in the car. I'm sure she'll understand; just don't let her hold the spit rod. If you do, she may argue in a very pointed manner! Let me know how this works. I'll let you try it with your wife before I try it with mine! Terry -- Terry Stockdale -- Baton Rouge, LA http://www.terrystockdale.comAt 04:47 PM 12/4/2004, Alfred wrote: <Snip>

This was an interesting little article, presented by the nice people at gmail, under related articles, you know, the stuff I usually ignore. Makes me wonder what kind of filters are being used to put these little tidbits in place. BTW, I agree with John's solution, I started tossing in a 1/2# of roast in the freezer, just in case. If I don't need it, I take it to work with me, it gets used up in a day or so. Related Pages Roast has aroma of success New Zealand Herald - Dec 2, 2004 By GEORGINA BOND.

Things could be worse, Alfred. I'm an old school Army Sergeant, that hates doing paperwork. So, I think up a way to make it painful for the offender, without doing reports. Like say you were late for formation, instead of reporting you, I would give you the option to make up the time, after the last formation of the day. 5 minutes late, you owe the Army an hour, and we will go pick up trash in the company parking lot or motor pool area. I rarely had one of my soldiers show up late after that. (word gets out). However, I noticed other Sergeants that went by the book, continue to have the same problems repeatedly. So, since this is a first time offense, I would let you off with a warning, and the next time this happens, you will volunteer to clean out the company coffee machine, after hours of course, on your time. And clean and re-stock the coffee making area. I think that's fair. Or you can lose 100 CSA points. Your choice. On Sun, 5 Dec 2004 09:04:43 -0800, alfred <2391> wrote: <Snip>
