Back in the early 70's (probably '73 or '74) I was living in Venice,  
Calif. and my place was broken into and robbed. Not much of real  
value was taken as I didn't have much in those days. One of the  
things that was missing was a baggy of loose oregano.

A few decades = ago my band was doing a showcase at a local club, when a fellow = performer came over, pulled out a plain white business envelope and = whispered, "You're not gonna believe what I found on the bus!"  It = was, well, not quite a lid but close.  He said that it was on the seat = next to him after the passenger had gotten off (no pun intended) a = couple of stops earlier.  He exclaimed, "And he even cleaned it--no = stems or seeds at all!" We had to explain to him what "sinsemillia" was. =  More than this I will not say.

I did stumble upon one once in an un-named public park in = Portland Oregon. I picked it up and a friend told me to go put it back = where I found it. Before I could a guy came running by in a panic and = asked me if I saw one on the ground and I said yes, you mean this? He = was very happy he didn't loose it. I was naive once.
True story. This was long before the IR2 lids = though.

"...a baggy of loose oregano."
If I had loose Oregano, I'd sure keep it in, like, a ZipLoc.
I brewed a dynamite double of FC+ Brazil Fazenda Ipanema (the Name gets me)
earlier. The remainder of the roast was looking lonely in the fruit jar, so
I divided it into 14g batches in sandwich ZipLocs, with the bags pressed
flat and the air excluded. Back in the fruit jar with all the ZipLoc'd
beans, so I can just throw a bag in the freezer before I grind and brew some
shots.
Maybe I can be a bean counter if I want to try some blends for Grits and
Shins. I do, so I will.
Cheers, Mabuhay -RayO, aka Opa!

Back on target (temporarily I'm sure), but keeping with the OT theme of
baggies of organic stuff--
I mailed four ziplocs of fresh-roasted coffee to my dad.
The package was opened and inspected... but he did appear to get the
complete package.
I guess it was just a little too suspicious in the x-ray machine. Or the
sniffing doggie knows and likes fresh coffee!

Kevin,
       The dogs are taught to identify coffee because smugglers often  
try to hide the smell of drugs by packing them in coffee.

Well, I don't think that the dogs are taught to identify coffee (could be
wrong, though). They are specifically taught to detect certain drugs (drug
dogs) or explosives (bomb dogs). I don't really know why they would be
taught to look for coffee, but if the handler was one of "us", I guess he
could be looking for good coffee :>).
