Topic: My location and.... my jar/labeling system (4 msgs / 110 lines)
1) From: Owen O'Neill
Yeah....  I know....  I still need to formally introduce myself to the
list but I'll do that in a separate mail (some of you already know me
from Coffeegeek Forums).
I'm in Rutherford NJ, just six miles from Manhattan and I can actually
see Giants Stadium in the distance from my living room window when the
leaves aren't on the trees (fortunately the leaves are on the trees for
6 months of the year!).
My little borough (that's what they call towns around here) has a
population of 18,000 squeezed into two square miles of area. We have
two cafes in town serving espresso, neither does it very well. Just to
show you how weird things can be....  we're in Bergen County, which has
a population of close to one million people and a density of about 3500
people per square mile. It's one of the ten wealthiest counties in the
US on terms of personal income yet the only tolerable espresso drinks
I've found in my three years here is at Starbucks!  Did I mention that
home roasting is a necessity because there isn't even a micro-roaster
within any reasonable distance?  
Oh to be in a town with no stoplights and two espresso bars.....  (but
being the unrealistic type, I'd still want to be able to drive into
Manhattan in 15 minutes like I can today!).

Owen, that would be on a day when the tunnel is open, security forces aren't
slowing the flow, and there isn't a wreck or fire in the tunnel.   Too many
of us have been there to get excited about your 15 minutes - it will take
longer than that to find a place where you can park - and expect most of
your car to still be there when you return.
I'll take my life in the slow lane, where people are more important than
anything - and fun in the sun runs a close second.
John - 1500 yards from Mexico and more really great people

3) From: Peter Barnes
But that would explain why I'm moving to Jersey City - just a hop, skip, and a jump into Manhattan via the PATH subway.
And the way things are going in Jersey City (good ways), who knows, I may be asking for advice on running a micro roaster one of these days.
cheers
