Eddie,
I bet the old-timers in your area cringe at the mention of your wife's name.
I know I did...

8) From: Eddie Dove
That's funny ... and she is constantly telling people that she was named
BEFORE the storm ...

This is one of those (many) times when I find myself without a clue. Does
"everything was above board" mean you were honest and genuine with Camille?
In high school...

11) From: Brett Mason
Yes, Tom... and if her mom or dad ever asked I could look them square in the
eye and say the same thing.  Was a great relationship...  The post was to
indicate a different memory than a storm...  I guess we each keep what is
significant in our memories...
Not cringing in CR - except for the flippin cold (-13 with wind chill)

You know for whom I feel really sorry? Rock singer Katrina ("Walking

a band called Katrina and the Waves.  Imagine becoming box office  
poison through no fault of your own due to the vagaries of climatic  
phenomena!

I decided to wait until Monday to roast and ship. It's a Canada Post 
thing. I've lived here for almost 7 years, and I still can't get used to 
a five day a week postal service.
It's a gamble, because it's positively balmy today, and who knows what 
Monday will bring, but if I need snowshoes to get to the garage, so be it.

Ditto, except I'll roast on Sunday and it will go out on Monday.
You're getting Zigzag blend, Brett, unless you tell me otherwise.
Take care,

Nothing to do with the roast exchange, just always get a kick out of your
email name: "Captain CowPie":-) Thoughts of a Marvel Comic character with a
western theme springs to mind!

This is the first time someone else in the home-roasting community is going
to be tasting my coffee and I feel like a kid that is about to take a test
... NERVOUS!

I sampled my exchange today!  A newbie roaster who roasts as good as I
do!  That isn't fair.

Hey Folks!
I just got my coffee exchange and had enough time to do a one-cup pour
over.  The coffee is excellent!
Good to know that I'm not that far off after all ...
Thank you to Rusty!!!

Sounds awesome!  Lucky guy I say!
Do you know what happens when you are roasting your Christmas Blend,
and you fail to get the latch completely closed?
OK so I have picked up from that mess and am moving ahead with my
roasting for the exchange...  It just gets a bit frustrating when
stupidity overwhelmes planning!
Cheer soon to be onits way!

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
My roast went out yesterday,  Along with a few mementos from the IKE I
hope everything travels with Godspeed and gets there in time for
Christmas. The published date for  before Christmas was yesterday so we
shall see.. Aaron let me know when you get the goods, and let me know
how the coffee is. lately I have found that packages are getting home in
about 8-10 days so mine should make it in time for Christmas. Now
packages getting here I have seen 7 days to 5 weeks (more to the 4-5
week time frame) I'm not holding my breath on getting any until the
first week of Jan. but I can't wait!!!! Now that we have moved from the
Indian Ocean to the Persian Gulf we should be receiving mail a bit more
often (since the mail all goes through Bahrain and we are now about 700
miles closer than we were) 
 
 
FYI to all that are interested my blend was 
4 parts Uganda Bugisu (C++)
4 parts Misty Valley (C)
4 parts Mexican Otaxica (C+)
2 parts Costa Rica Peaberry (FC)
1 part Green Stripe (C+)
1 part Yirg (C+)
 
if 1 part is 1/8 pound this makes about 2 #'s I kept a pound for myself
to see how it came out.  Post Roast blending was really the only choice
for me this year since I am limited in my methods and batch sizes.
