Ron,
    I live on the Mexican Border and its almost always hot - so pop-corn =
isn
t a big factor, and apparently the thrift stores don't ever see the poppe=
ry.
That's a part of the reason I'm a FR user.  As for the rain - we've been =
in
a drought condition for four years in the southern tip of Texas.  NOT a
problem now - flooding is the problem now - MAJOR flooding around San
Antoniio and minor flooding down here.  At this point we'd be glad to sha=
re
the rain scheduled for today.

BTW: I saw a fairly nice stovetop crank popper at a Target at while 
back. The nice feature is a clear glass view window on top. The bad 
news it that the agitating paddle is like the Perfect Popper, a 
design that tends to jam more than the Whirley Pop. The gears are 
cast metal like the Perfect Popper-which is nice -Tom

Tom, I wanted to get the whirley pop, but I don't have an exhaust hood over
the range, and it is electric to boot. But finding a good buy always excites
me. I just roasted some Brazil Auction winner . SM of course I really like
this coffee. thanks for offering such a great selection of greens.
