    Cables, Coffee, and Cocktails

    My morning routine has me enjoying a cup or two of non GMO, environmentally friendly, green, expensive, co-op purchased, coffee while reading the latest in the cable debate now on page 19 in one thread and a "hot topic" in two others. Pursuing Cal's thread that wandered a bit and ended up in a discussion of coffee I would like to pick the brain of the serious coffee drinkers here and get some suggestions, tips, and advice. Here are the particulars. I usually do not grind my own beans. I drink two cups in the morning....that's it. Expensive to me is more than $10 a pound. I am not particularly loyal to any brand or purveyor. I have a Keurig but routinely use a Mr. Coffee. I guess among serious coffee drinkers, to use an audio comparison, I am in the boom box stage. So what would be a step up?

    So for say $75-$90,000 we could live pretty well? Ocean front? Safe?

    What's the cost of living like there Bruce?

    Our painter did it. Followed directions but if moisture is in the slab or comes up from the ground the coating can fail. Lucky just a tiny area....so far.

    LF did the epoxy floor in the garage. She has a 2sq. inch area that bubbled up and popped😕

    Glad you're drying out Carl.....been worrying about you. Actually thought about putting together an "intervention" at the Pilgrimage but couldn't find anyone sober to help.

    Yes to all.......dehumidifier. And I do need to check the crawl space as this has been a record rain year. May have some puddles under there😕

    Any of you Gents use a humidifier for mold/mildew control? Got a little mold upstairs but house has been empty for 6 months. HVAC systems are suppose to do that right? Home Depot has them for around $200 that supposedly takes care of 2500sq ft. Would that take care of both floors if centrally placed?

    Well if nothing else I am uncluttering a bit. Books in the attic for 30 years with bug droppings, tupperware, misc piece of hardware.....all going. Also fixed a rocker on the front porch (L bracket for arm), and filled up Damp Rid containers. Never use the front door for entrance and have lost the key. May change front and back locks and key the same.

    Yep I'm on the other side of the creek. Just 10 minutes away. She wants to sit in the house for an hour today to see how it "feels".😐

    Happy birthday WillyBob! Buy yourself a nice bottle of single malt and send Carl the bill. Considering a house share situation at my place since I am rarely there. I have spent two nights there in the last six months since LF and I rescued the Jakester. Rent would off set taxes, insurance, utilities that I now pay. The female tenant is pretty much the polar opposite of me. She is a night owl.....I'm a morning person. She watches CNN....I don't. What we have in common is liking dogs and both are neat as far as the house goes. She would have access to everything but my suite and the music room. I built the house thirty years ago and have maintained it in great condition. No children....no smoking....no roller skating inside. I think she would take care of things and may even be OCD about order. Thoughts?

    Eyes To Look At Car For Me

    I'm looking on line at a car in Layfayette, Indiana and was wondering if we have a member in the area that can look at it for me. I'm a stickler for any flaws so I need someone with good vision. It's a BMW Z4. If you can stop by let me know. Thanks!

    Separate circuit for the stereo gear is a good idea.

    Yep repairs are high. I've replaced a car horn, solenoid that feeds the camshafts?, rubber trim around the windshield, and a wiper motor. All pricey!

    Got LF addicted to WORDS (scrabble) on FB. We're sitting in the same room on devices playing back and forth.
