Halloween Tradition/Introduction
Good evening, all. I've been a silent member of this list for sometime =
now. I've absorbed much good advice and information from list members, =
as well as been entertained by the humor, technical prowess, ingenuity =
and snappy intellectual repartee! I live in Albany, New York as does my =
friend Michael who introduced me to homeroasting and SweetMarias. I =
roast with an unmodified Z&D; Michael uses a HotTop. He brews primarily =
with a Bodum vac pot; I brew using a KMB (for which I have an incredible =
Thor tamper!). We frequently exchange beans and occasionally we roast =
and compare the results over Sunday breakfast.
Now, as a thank you to list members, I have a tradition to offer. As the =
comedians say, timing is everything and I hadn't wanted to detract from =
Ann's recent, very generous offer. However, since more offers have =
popped up recently and Ann's ends tomorrow, I've decided to add mine for =
Halloween.  I have managed to pick up another KMB (at a local Tuesday =
Morning; sadly, there was only one) and yes, the KMB is the tradition =
that I am offering! Interested parties (and please, only those who don't =
already own one) send me an email off-list to lreese1 Each =
name will be printed on a small piece of paper, crumpled and placed in a =
pumpkin. Why crumpled?  Because my one-eyed, slightly freakish looking =
cat Lucky will assist in the drawing. She has great prowess in fishing =
small pieces of paper out of spaces much more challenging than a =
pumpkin, and as usual, looks forward to helping! She claims to have no =
personal knowledge of anyone on this list and further, in true feline =
fashion, will not be swayed by pleading, cajoling, nor any other manner =
of human-type groveling. She has her own stash of catnip (don't even =
think about trying to bribe her with vegemite!) so that track is also a =
dead end. The winning name will be drawn on Halloween night! I'll post =
the name of the winner (if Lucky doesn't run off with it before I can =
read it!) to the list the following day so contact and shipping =
arrangements can be made. This is not a trick! It will definitely be a =
treat for the winner! It's getting late on this coast and I still have =
to finish putting together a "kitty litter cake" for tomorrow's office =
Halloween party, so I'll look forward to catching up with everyone in =
the morning. "Good night and good luck" and Happy Halloween! Linda Reese

Welcome to the list!  What a great tradition!  I already have one, so I
won't be partaking, but welcome to the list!
My wife and I went to school near Albany in Troy, NY.  Two guesses where :)
Nice area, and fall in the northeast is particularly inspiring (winter not
so much :))

taunting them - but a cat wouldn't do that, would she?
  I do hope that Lucky will be compensated for her work (my dogs would =
be happy with a pat on the head, and a bite of biscotti - but then

eat them if they were written on dirty tissues , and my Sammy would

great...) But I'd love to see some photos, if you can take some before =
it is eaten.

What a great tradition offering, Linda!  I have three KMB myself and
am absolutely hoarding them.  My daughter just noticed the filter
holder plastic on my original KMB was peeling and I had to throw away
the filter holder away.   It endured well over 1000 pots of coffee
before it's demise. I stole a filter holder from my spares and now
find myself filled with a bit of anxiety.  I threatened to get my
daughter's machine out of storage and start using hers (that I bought
for her, of course) while they are living with us.  But, I'll just buy
another spare carafe.
I seriously can't bear to think about being without a KMB. The
intensity of flavor is just out of this world.  Good luck to the
winner....You're in for a real treat.
Take care,
Ann
