Topic: I'm back (13 msgs / 206 lines)
1) From: jim gundlach
Jim Gundlach here,
   I'm now back after burying my mother.  I've not kept up with posting for
the past ten or twelve days so I don't know what's transpired.  When I left,
there was a thread about material that could be used to make a canister to
add to a BBQ rotisserie to roast beans in.  Did anyone find a source for
such material?  If not, I'll pick up looking where I left off.
   When I was in Oklahoma City, I tried the coffee at a chain called Panera,
it apparently spun off the St Louis Bread Company.  They have passable
espresso, reminds me of Tom's classic espresso blend.  It was reasonably
fresh and no hint of a robusta flavor.  I would guess the beans were roasted
well into the second crack but not burnt like star$.  They have locations in
29 states so when traveling they might be worth looking for.  I only tried
the one location and I can't vouch for the coffee at their other locations
but it would be worth a try if you are stuck some place that has one and you
don't know of any place better. Their breads and rolls are wonderful.
I also picked up some mesquite wood that I will use to make the smoke for
roasting some beans over a wood fire later today.
A word to the wise.
  Elective surgery can kill you.

Welcome back to homeroast, Jim.  Wow, just 10 days ago I wrote you when you said
you were going to attend to your mother.  We can't all die so predictably.  Now
that I'm about to be 77, it occurs to me more and more often what vagaries there
are to the process of ending life.  As I said, before, you have my condolences.

Hi All,
First, thanks for all of the kind words and support, both on-list and 
off list. Myron gets the farthest, and most religously diverse awards 
for his greetings (unless the Scarlet Wombat drank a scotch in honor 
of my father).
My dad is doing spectaculy well after having to wait till monday to 
have his by-pass operation (5 bypasses). I just drove them from Veags 
to his house in Lake Havasu, AZ this afternoon. I have to wait to 
Monday to fly back from Vegas to home due to flight avaiability.
My Dad and our family thank you for all of the prayers and good 
wishes, and credit God for listening to you all.
Ben

Barry if it's anything like when I had my gizzard removed,  the narcs 
they have you on for pain, and any antibiotics are doing it to you.
if they put you under, the anesthesia they use leaves a lasting effect 
for a few days too.
The narcs shouldn't do it too much, or if they do, you won't give a crap 
heh....
antibiotics will definately kill the flavor of anything.   once you get 
off theses drugs if you are on them, your taste will come back to normal.
I hate to give a time since everyone is different but oh, week or so at 
worst???
good luck and glad to hear your surgery went well....

It's the Anesthesia. No antibiotics and am off narcotics able to manage my 
pain with Tylenol for the first time in a year. Coffee tastes so foul cant 
even stand to smell it. Am roasting today for my wife. Hope I will be able 
to drink it again when it peaks.

Suddenly Road Runner started ignoring the list. After 2 weeks I realized it
was time to go to G mail. I think I am back. Will know if I receive this.
