But the water is pretty and well the weather here in the sun is around 95 deg or so every day? we are in ground hog day syndrome here (every day is just likethe day before) I am so jealous but thankful that I can enjoy it vicariously through my fellow Home Roasters?only 164 left until I can finally be back home.

Dennis,
This is a few days after your post, but I'm in Qatar in a town called Mesaieed doing some training at a company called QAFCO. I'm working in a compound surrounded by cyclone fencing and barbed wire with nothing but a huge chemical plant around me. Past that is nothing but sand dunes on three sides and the Gulf on the fourth. Fortunately I get to fly back home just south of Newport Beach next weekend. Real coffee, here I come (and we won't talk about the real whiskey and the real woman back home).
Another lister posted a link to my favorite poem, Robert Service's The Cremation of Sam McGee at YouTube:
