Topic: Tradition in Honor of Alfred (14 msgs / 687 lines)
1) From: ginny
This Tradition is being given in Honor of Alfred, our dear friend who has passed on...
I am offering a Dr. Crema Myrtlewood Thor Hammer.
This can be viewed at: http://thortamper.com/pagefive.htmlThe winner can discuss with Les the size and type the want; they can be ordered with a
flat base, concave, or convex.
I will pull the name from a martini glass on Sunday at 12 Noon, PST
Warmest  Regards to all,
ginny
please email me off list at:

French:
You are in the martini glass and thank you for participating in this very, very special Tradition; Les has made it even more so by offering his special Myrtlewood to honor Alfred.
Warmest regards,
ginny

OK, here goes Neil:
A long time before I got here there was a conncetion between the list members called:
The Tradition
I am not sure how it really got started, there are stories everywhere, but I do know that a list member offered
a small gift to the list. The person who won/got the gift was obligated to offer another small gift to the list.
Hence the Tradition offering. We keep gifts going all through the year. The gifts are whatever the giver wishes, you do not have to win/get a Tradition to offer one. Just something for fellow listers and it continues forever.
I love the Traditions and randomly offer something to the list. This particular Tradition, to Alfred, is very, very special for me.

Yet another reason I love you.

Hi Ginny and all,
     I came to list too late to experience Alfred, and from the 
discussion it appears that I missed much wit and wisdom. On the positive 
side, I've experienced first-hand the effusive positivity of the people 
that create this community of home roasters. Thanks for all the advice, 
chuckles, and way off topic musings. And Ginny, thanks, that is a very 
nice tradition offering.

Gin you remind me of one of my sisters. The burnt marshmallow. ( i named 
her) All hard and crusty on the outside, and soft and gooey on the inside.
P.S. Nice offering.

How can you top that compliment???  ;-o 
I always thought you two were brother and sister...you sure act like it! ;-)
What a truly thoughtful tradition offering! You rock, Ginny!

8) From: French Lewis
Hi All,
I too came to the list to experience Alfred, and from
all the positive commentary about him it is obvious
that he was well received, liked, and respected.   I
can only hope to leave such an impression on the
people I deal with.
I would like to say that Ginnys tradition is a very
nice gesture, and a commentary on the influence of
Alfred's life on others.   This is a community to
which I'm proud to be a relatively new member.

Given that I don't own an espresso machine I couldn't justify entering
this drawing, but thanks nonetheless for a very generous and
appropriate tradition offering.

As a relative newcomer to the list, could someone explain the process of these 'traditions'?
I have sort of picked the general gist, but it would be nice to know the details.
The term 'tradition' (in this context) is not generally known in Oz...
Thanks

14) From: petzul
Ginny,
This is a wonderful offering, something to help remember someone who 
deserves to be remembered.
My other 2 porta filter baskets just turned up as we were readying the 
fifth wheel for Mexico, and they are all nearly the same size in 
diameter. I use them interchangeably. They are not very big though, 
about 49MM I think. They all came from machines in the $350 range, from 
thrift stores of course, with pumps. Weird that they all should be 
smaller than what I have read here is usual.
Someday I will combine the three machines into one semi decent one, and 
get rid of the spice jar that works as a tamper.
