"Exothermic Meditation"
exothermic: ADJECTIVE: Releasing heat: an exothermic
meditation: NOUN: 1a. The act or process of
meditating. b. A devotional exercise of or leading to
meditate: TRANSITIVE VERB: 1. To reflect on;
contemplate: TRANSITIVE VERB: 1. To look at .
My personal definition of "Exothermic Meditation"
Exothermic Meditation: Drinking a nice cup of hot
coffee and letting the heat release into my body while
reading the bible reflecting attentively and
thoughtfully on every word during my morning quite
time with God. 
Survey time
1.What are your religious believes
2. What is your trade or calling in life?
3. What is you IQ?
I had no idea what definition of Exothermic was and
had to look it up. I have learned to be quiet unless I
know some good advice.(remember the French Press
Thermos) I will always admit when I don't know
something and want to know. Is it time to charge the
CSA rules?  5.We admitted to no one they knew more
about coffee than we did. I only have high
school,trade school training. I was  the Distinguisted
Honor Graduate of my Army Radar School. (Target
Acquisition surveillance radar repair technician).
Took make a long story short My family  never drank
coffee growing up. I started drinking coffee int the
army. It was some nasty stuff but it will keep you
awake. I meet and married a beautiful Puerto Rican 
Model who got me hooked on Cafe Con Leche made with a
stove top espresso machine and milk heat on the stove.
 12 years later after moving about 5 times we are in
Columbia SC. I am a Sr. Field Service Technician for
Varian Medical Systems.http://www.varian.comThe
companyís Oncology Systems business produces a fully
integrated system of products for treating cancer with
radiation, including linear accelerators and treatment
simulation and verification products as well as
information management and treatment planning software
and other sophisticated ancillary devices, software,
and services. Varianís linear accelerators and
treatment simulation and verification products are
sold and in service around the world. 
I took and on-line fee IQ test last week from
emode.com I did not buy the full test results,but they
did send me  these results
"Congratulations Michael you scored a 126 and was
grouped as a Precision Processor.
This means you're exceptionally good at discovering
quick solutions to problems, especially ones that
involve math or logic. You're also resourceful and
able to think on your feet." 
I feel pretty stupid that I wasted $200+ dollars
attempting  to build a hot air roaster. I have given
up on making a hot air roaster for know after I
calculated I needed 55,000 BTU to heat and air flow of
100CFM to 500 degrees.  A 5 lb shop drum roaster only
used 16,000BTU. I know I could do it but it take time
money and trial and error which I don't want to invest
any of for now. I should have listened to Ed's advice
on his website to begin with about not attempting
unless you own you own metal shop. I will pass my
project on to Ron Kyle who owns a metal working shop.
He makes nice drums and I am sure he could build a
nice air roaster.
I am also a techno junkie. I am setting here drinking
coffee in a later chair in my living room  while
typing on a wireless keyboard look at a 8 fut screen
from and LCD projector hooked to a Windows Media
Center PC.   
Its your turn,

About 20 points higher on Monday, after my new Mazzer Mini arrives; this 
will offset the loss in IQ points resulting from sticking a Caddy engine 
into a Fiero

Indeed.  I use the exothermic meditative technique every morning in my 
Buddhist and pagan meditations and discussions with the goddess and my 
spirit guides about the coming activities for the day.  The coffee part is 
most important to the entire process.
Many Buddhists do what they call a tea meditation, I simply modify it for a 
coffee meditation.  Oh, and I'm always careful to thank the entity/spirit 
of Coffee for its contribution to my life, a worthy contribution.
