My turn! I'm enjoying myself in this forum a great deal. From the laughs 
to the sorrows, it's a pleasure to meet all of you. That said, I've been 
caught up in all the offerings here, so I've decided to add yet another.
It's not coffee, but a cup. I have designed a cup, well, big ole mug, 
with pottery artist Rita Shields as thank you gifts for several clients 
and a few friends. The luck of the kiln was with us this year and I was 
able to have more than I counted on or needed so I'm putting one up here 
for my Holiday offering.
I have created a new folder called Coffee Support Gear for cups, and...
Wait a minute - Just got the news - sometime during the night I became a 
great uncle. My sister, the new grandma just texted me the news. My baby 
sister is a grandma - I must be old... Pretty cool, though!
Back to the cups... OK, New folder, "Support Gear", you know, for all 
that other cool stuff we need to enjoy our brew. In that folder are 3 
pictures of the cup, or a similar one, that I am offering this year.
If you'd like to have the cup, email me directly off line with your 
mailing address. I was thinking of doing this "radio style" and giving 
the cup to the "29th caller" or something like that. But here's what I 
settled on:
When I wake up on Wednesday the 19th at roughly 6 AM, I'll draw a number 
from the proverbial hat (numbers will be assigned in the order emails 
arrive) and will announce the winner shortly after that. Later Wednesday 
morning, I'll priority mail the cup off to the winner.
So - to reiterate:
Email me off line
Include your mailing address.
AHA! Another idea... A contest is forming in my head... Send something 
that will make me laugh with your post - now this part is totally 
subjective on my part  - and I'll send that person a bag of my homemade 
maple sugar. I use coffee bags to give it away in. This has been a 
Despres family tradition for years now so someone will be welcomed into 
my family by making me laugh. Now, I'm not above a bit of low brow 
humor, but I will post that which makes me laugh here.
OK - To reiterate the reiteration
Email me off line before 6 AM Wednesday the 19th.
Include your mailing address
Include humor for some of my homemade maple chunks - This part is not 
required, though.
So, go to http://www.homeroasting.com/gallery/main.php?g2_itemIdx20&g2_navId=x777b9ff9
and see the cups and make me laugh.

Before someone else goes nuts here, to me, off line means click my 
personal email address and send your info directly to me, not the forum. 
Now I don't personally care if some would like to send their address to 
the entire group, but I think we shouldn't be clogging up the forum with 
entries for the cup.
My email address is john
Thanks and good like
JD
