I'm sure I have in one way or another said thanks to these people at 
least once, but I'd like to take a moment to recognize them again - they 
each somehow contributed to making my Christmas holiday season more 
enjoyable.  It started Back in October when Aaron so generously gave me 
a gift certificate to SM when he had a turn of good fortune.  Then in 
November Kris Bhatti chose me to receive the Jello-bean mold.  I was 
able to make some chocolate covered coffee beans which I included with 
our coffee gifting this year.  Then, just as I was in the midst of 
collecting names for my Christmas Eve Tradition offering, Ed Bourgeois, 
in the middle of a blizzard in MA, chose my name to receive 1/4 pound of 
each of the two 2006 IMV coffees, which he roasted to perfection.  This 
was a real treat since due to my stash size I had skipped both of these 
2006 offerings.  In mid December Dennis True so kindly organized the 
Christmas Blend Coffee Swap in which I was paired with Brett Mason.  I 
wish I had the gift of description to be able to share with you the 
flavors of this fine blend that Brett mixed up and roasted as his 
Holiday Blend.  As Rachel Ray would say "Yummmo!"  I didn't win the 
fruit cake from Susan Oppenheim, but she let me purchase one and jumped 
through hoops to get it through Canada Post and the USPS and to our 
house Christmas week.  Then, one of the biggest surprises of all was 
this week when I received a box of biscotti from Lynne.  Boy, do I feel 
special! Double yummmo!
I can't let go unrecognized my wife, Mickie, who do kindly bit her 
tongue, didn't kick me out of the house, and still hasn't said "why do 
we need that" when less than a week apart (in December) I bought a 
Hottop and a Bricoletta Volante. (I am keeping her at bay with twice 
daily cappos)
Thanks to all of you - your generosity and camaraderie are what makes 
this list and all of us "family".  And of course thanks to Tom & Maria 
for so freely giving us this list which makes it all possible.
I raise my cup to each of you - and to all our fellow list members,
Thanks!

Jerry, I am in the same position!
Aaron blessed me with a wonderful gift certificate, and terrific friendship
over the years...
Eddie rebuilt my old Cory grinder, and gifted it back to me.  RayO worked
behind the scenes to help Eddie with the technical background to make the
effort a huge success
Susan shared some Kopi Luwak so I could try it
Jerry sent me a terrific Christmas Blend, and amazing chocolates that Debbie
and I nursed through yesterday
Sweet Maria's Clearance and Sale page provided an incredible deal on an
Oscar
and I have so many more - these are just a select few.  Your friendship is
precious to me, your wisdom is amazing, and the camaraderie is awesome.
And Mike agrees too!  Thanks to all of you for what you have given to me,
and to all of us...
