Topic: TW3 (TWTWTW)* (14 msgs / 236 lines)

* (For all you youngies-TW3=That Was The Week That Was)
End of last week I roasted some of my special SM beans that I get hand
delivered from my friend in SF who has a thing about visiting Israel. It was
Uganda Bugisu for the first time. I also did some Indian Monsooned that I
took a bit darker than usual. Then I took some locally bought Kenya AB and
pushed it darker than usual  (oily surface after resting a day or so). I
have had some great coffee with various blends of these. A fantastic week!
(Especially the Moka Pot (Brikka) brew)
Just made a cup with some the Uganda, Monsooned and PNG--very good indeed.
Now I will try going a tad darker on the Uganda as well. WHAT A WEEK!
Good thing my friend is coming at the end of the month. My order for another
lb of Uganda and 5 lbs of Monsooned is on their way!
best, myron

Re TW3 that was a Brit show anyway so maybe age isn't the only qualification?
Fortunately I qualify on both counts! :-)

Ah! I live, I age, and very occasionally I learn. Thank you Jim.

The original was a bit more biting BBC production but an American 
version was carried on NBC in the early 60's.

Friends are wonderful things - especially if they bring you coffee!   
All of our whining  about waiting on ISH must be a bit boring to you.  
We are a very spoiled group. We complain when it takes the Big Brown 
truck a week to get here, we complain when the slow boat from ISH 
doesn't carry enough,   I wonder what the pioneers would have had to say 
about all our whining.

Well, I do have trouble relating to posts about certain beans that are
unavailable here...but the ISH post kept popping up..I didn't follow all of
them, but decided the time had come to order some. But after hunting for ISH
at SM, hunting and hunting, i found out that he was ALL SOLD OUT!

In the world of Burlesque (I've been told because I'm way too young) the 
Tease was what kept men's attention. A quick peek and a promise of 
more!  Tom clearly has some old burlesque blood coursing his veins.   
The Tease only lasted hours this year.  I was off list playing doctor 
but a friend sent me a heads up - but by the time I got on the Web it 
was gone...  well then I found out that it never really made the web 
pages because it was an insider special.   Wonder if Tom and Maria know  
Martha Stewart :))

The program was produced by Leland Hayward Productions for NBC.  TW3 was 
broadcast live from New York (as announcers Dick Noel and later Jerry 
Damon reminded us each week), originating from NBC studios 6A and the 
legendary 8H; the one-hour 1963 special was done from studio 6B.

11) From: Rick Farris
Maybe it was a Brit show, but it was also an American show, with regular
appearances (host'd maybe?) by the Smothers Brothers.

But "That Was The Week That Was"
Was What it Was
Due to the Brits!
Maybe the Brits drink Tea
But they gave us coffee (Remember the Boston Tea Party-which led to the
first N.E.C.F.-New England Coffee Fest)
They gave us our independance (Well, I guess we kinda took it)
and they gave us TW3.
Give credit where credit is due.
Hey, were the Smothers Brothers really on the show too??
best-myron
PS. While I write this i must be serious for a moment. We hear of the
terrible attacks in Turkey that have killed and maimed, amongst others,
British citizens.

13) From: Rick Farris
I guess not.  I thought they were, but Wandering John proved me wrong.
It was still a good show.

No, but some of the Monty Python troupe were, and were writers on the show also.
