You obviously have your lights all up or you wouldn't have time for the 
construction of this.  Another CSA hall of famer for sure!

Show off ;) Actually, I see a whole new hobby for you -- poetry 
slams. There's a bar here in Chicago; people get up on stage and 
improvise poetry, then the audience votes (minus infinity to 
10). Not too good for the poet's ego; great for the audience.

Definitely worth some CSA points. Speaking of Christmas lights, we need =

love to see your display, I know I sure would! :o)

Now how did I know the 12th day was going to be a Kona?  Thanks for
including the Bugisu!  I had a good chuckle and Merry Christmas Mike and
Debi.  I enjoyed a very fine Americano of Moki Farm Kona with breakfast.  I
will be having a ristretto of KBM Peaberry as soon as I am done with the
emails.

You did notice that was simply a re-post I originally posted Christmas
'03!-)
If you do decide to rotary mod your Expobar, take to Mike (just plain), when
converted to rotary he also mod'd his Astoria with ability to pre-infuse.

Les,
I think I may still have a Procon/Bodine pump/motor around here
somewhere if you really get industrious after the Thor orders are all
filled.  Let me know if you need it, I'm sure we could do some
tradeing.

Mike,
I already can preinfuse with the control panel I have.  Plain Mike, I'll
email you off list when I get caught up!

Nah, long long gone. Note on the first post I left the orginal posting tag,
Holiday Season 2003. If some were still in stash it'd be deader than a door
nail unless hermetically sealed under deep freeze, then a good chance of
decent life remaining.

Didn't notice the tag and I must have missed or forgotten the original post. Bali Shinzan was a fine coffee though.

Congratulations on your new Baby.
Album will be out about the time you upgrade to a Kees Van der Westen
Speedster or Mirage:)

Don't want anything in my kitchen that will outrun my Alfa Spider, but
thanks for the link.

I should be careful what I say 'cuz actually know of a couple home baristas
that HAVE Speedsters at home. Especially to someone with an Alpha Romeo

Well Mike,
You inspired me to muster up the courage to fire up the new Gaggia. It's not
spewing water from the brewing head. I tried bleeding the system by
activating the steam nozzle and still no water. The tank temp light blinks
on occasionally then blinks off. Am I not being sufficiently patient with
the baby? -Bob

31) From: John Borella
Nice to see there's another Alfa owner on this list. I keep the Alfas out of 
the kitchen so no issues with the Speedster!
