Topic: Don't Forget the Off-Topic Tradition! (3 msgs / 81 lines)
1) From: Brett Mason
Don't forget to enter the OT Tradition!  We are celebrating the of-topic
nature of a coffee-house gathering, where many ideas are kicked around,
whilst we sip our cups and discuss our opinions.  Yeah we do that here on
the Sweet Maria's list, and we're celebrating such a tradition with a
drawing!  You should enter!
Send entries to:
thegster
two lovely demi-tasse cups (new) from Paris will be awarded on Monday
morning at 9am PST
Here's to many more OT discussions...

Pardon my ignorance, but having just jumped on the list after a few months away, what's the OT contest about?  Thanks!

Paul,
Tradition on this list is where someone offers something as a gift to
others.  Anyone can ask that their name be added to the drawing.  In this
case, send your name to thegster and you'll be included...
Tradition is for: two lovely demi-tasse cups (new) from Paris will be
awarded on Monday morning at 9am PST ...
One other thing.  After a short season, the winner should find something HE
or SHE can offer as a tradition in the same vein.  These traditions are one
more wonderful part of this list.  So throw your name in the hat...  As for
me, I've given away several other things myself - the traditions are fun....
This is called the OT Tradition, in light of the rejoicing and anger over
the topics on this list that are OFF-TOPIC - meaning not just about
coffee...  This seems to bless some and anger others.  But coffeehouses and
pubs do this - they provide a wonderful forum for sharing and caring...  We
do that here too...
Cheers, hope that clarified a bit.  Again, send your name into
thegster for your shot at winning!
