Topic: Luna Bee Birthday Tradition 3 (14 msgs / 240 lines)
1) From: Kris McN
Hello Fellow Home-roasters,
It's election day in the U.S., which means it's almost Luna Bee's birthday,
which means it's time for the 3rd Annual Luna Bee Birthday Tradition!  My
girl and this list/community/home roasting have a long association: she was
conceived shortly after I started home roasting.  I went to my first PNW
Homeroast Gathering at miKe's while pregnant with her, I even roasted coffee
while in labor waiting for her birth.  Now she likes to pull up the steps
and watch me make coffee in the morning.  My how time flies!
Three is an auspicious birthday, right?  That's what I figure, so in honor
of the event, I would like to offer up the pair of individual coffee
cup/filter sets pictured here:http://www.sweetmariascoffee.com/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId980They're nice little Art Deco, silver plate sets, ideal for making
Vietnamese-style coffee (where you drip directly into sweetened condensed
milk), or however you like. I will have Luna somehow choose a name on her
birthday (Nov 8).  So If you would like to be included in the drawing, email
me off list by 5pm Monday (krismcn at gmail dot com) and I'll throw you in.
Best,
Kris McN

Oh, you guys, I've been so remiss in posting this!  I've been down with
horrible kid cooties for weeks and I just haven't been in a position to mail
anything off, so I didn't want to post until I could.  Long enough!
Luna Bee is into puzzles.  It's her thing, so I took one of her puzzles and
wrote everyone's name on the back of a piece.  Then after we put it
together, I asked her to choose her favorite piece (which is kind of a weird
question but the sort of thing 3 year old rolls with).  The winner of the
3rd Annual Luna Bee Birthday Tradition is:
David Brown, aka deerslammer!
Congratulations and thanks to everyone for their participation and birthday
wishes.  The warmth and family feel of this community makes me smile.
David, send me your address off-list and I'll get a package in the mail for
you.
Best,
Kris McN
