1) From: Brett Mason
Hello friends,
I signed back up.  This abstinance/withdrawal thing is brutal....  There
really isn't another place to spend time with others on home roasting....
I don't see me likely changing my political viewpoint, so it's just me, but
back on list.  I am working to not stay as close to my keyboard - the family
/ social aspect of my life needs to distance some from the keyboard...
I did miss you guys!
Brett

Welcome back Brett!
I just delete any posts I see with political stuff, and instead focus on 
soaking up the coffee knowledge like a sponge.  So much to learn from 
you guys :)
BTW, I might possibly be converting my wife.  I left her with a half 
pound of blue batak beans I roasted to FC, instructions on grinder 
settings to use for them and a clean French Press this morning when I 
left for work and she was looking at it all and licking her lips.
There might be hope for her yet :)

Welcome Back Brett,
Every day I would cry a few tears in my coffee wishing you would come
back to the list.
Todays tears landed in a delicious, earthy cup of Sumatra Lintong
Nihuta KVW Decaf roasted to FC.
Thank you!

The 2003 Screamin Eagle Anniversary Road King that my dad gave me since he
can no longer ride is sitting in Tulsa Oklahoma and I am watching these
freaking storms rip through there tearing up buildings and flooding the
area- I am scared $h!tless that it will be trashed and the primary object of
my dads affection and memory will be trashed!
The transporter was supposed to have it to me this week and had a driver
quit - stranding it there.  I am freaking out.  I have been lying to dad
about the delays to keep him from worrying about it!
I am drinking over roasted Moka Kadir - I just can't seem to get the
roasting squared away since I came back...lots on my mind.
Sean
Off to Myrtle Beach for Spring Break - where I can sit on the beach and
worry about my dad and his MC.

Same here. I nailed one roast a couple of weeks ago - roasted three that
came out great.
But that was an exception - my most recent roasts have been horrid. Even the
very same bean that turned out
great before - so I know it's me. For me, it's worrying about my dogs.. as
always.
Hope you can let go of some of the worry. I know - easier said than done.
