  1. This is it Guys

    Congrats! That's very exciting!

    As Sonny & Cher used to say, "The 'bean' goes on..."

    Crazy run of weather for sure! "Bomb Cyclone" that's a really cool title too! (though I don't know that SE TX gets to be called that).

    I'm so sorry Chuck. It's the worst, making that call. Dogs give you unconditional love for their lifetimes, then they rip your guts out when they leave. They're worth that end of life heartache I suppose. No sugar coating this part though... You are in my thoughts. I will raise a glass to Jake tonight and my cup of coffee to him this morning. He's been a good family member to you!

    Good to see you are all surviving the winter (so far)! it was 40 when I woke up this morning - FINALLY it's back down to 30 and snowing vigorously! This is so much better than rain/ice combos! Happy we're not in a minus 20 stretch right now - though it is great coffee weather. Stay warm everyone and Happy Belated New Year!

    Happy Friday All! FINALLY got some snow on the ground in south central AK, it's been too long! We had some Christmas rains which just weren't effective for getting into the spirit of the season. Saw the new Star Wars last night so I'd like to start posting some of the most significant spoilers right now. First of all, finding out that... Just kidding - I have a heart! (for those that even care about Star Wars) Coffee is better when there's snow on the ground. Have a wonderful weekend!

    Thank you both for asking! We are one week in and are just about out of the woods for the most part. I'm glad tarchuck is keeping you both accountable - but I'm grateful you asked. Enjoy the weekend everyone! (that works)

    Good Thursday everyone! On cup #2 of Java this morning - I was introduced last night to a new bourbon I thought I'd share (if it hasn't been already - may be old hat for some). A friend recommended Knob Creek Single Barrel reserve, it's wonderful. It is quite smooth and I really enjoyed the flavor. If you haven't tried it - I give it a thumbs up. Remember, I'm not even a whiskey enthusiast - so take this amateurs amateur opinion with two grains of salt. :-) Little man continues to heal - and get way more active - no issues so far! Have a great day!

    Good morning all! Thanks for the prayers, thoughts and positive vibes! Little man is sore but everything went as well as could be! The staff were great. They made him a crown and told him to put his hands in the air like a roller coaster when they wheeled him back. They make it as pain free as possible! Let the healing begin! I’m on cup #2 this morning and he’s on Christmas Special #3. :-) Have a great weekend!
  10. Cables, Coffee, and Cocktails

    Thank you all for the kind words! Will keep you updated. Lot's of Christmas cartoons on the docket for this weekend - hopefully we can get him to stay SOMEWHAT still for a couple of days!

    We all came down with the flu last year over Thanksgiving weekend and we so hope to avoid a repeat this year! It was miserable! Warmed up to 32 today - it feels nice! It's been 0 or 18 and 35mph winds - I'll take cold over wind anytime! Keep our three year old in your thoughts and prayers on Friday - have three hernias fixed up. Should be routine - surgery is always unsettling on the littles. Enjoying cup #2! Have a wonderful week!
  12. Cables, Coffee, and Cocktails

    Happy Monday All! It's Thanksgiving NEXT WEEK! Time flies - but life is good! It was a balmy -1 this morning in the far northwest, makes for a good two cup start to the day! Enjoy your week!
  13. Cables, Coffee, and Cocktails

    They got much more than enough! And we only did a few houses... Thanks Stew- we tried to make some memories! Today was a two Americano day! Wheeeee!!!!
  14. Cables, Coffee, and Cocktails

    Good times - the older two are at fun ages for this!

    I briefly interrupt this coffee discussion to share this pic of our family DC/Marvel mashup last night. The boys loved being superheroes of course. Little bits was Superman. He’s one month today. Time scoots. On the coffee note - we had that white machine on the cart in the Tonys coffee corner (gray box). It worked well - we got it as a wedding gift and my wife was a barista for a while so that worked out pretty well for me!
