Saw a new vette on the road the other day, I was rather surprised, because snow was predicted, and occured, that evening....
I've driven mine in the snow. I'm not saying I enjoyed it, but I have done it and survived.

Thought specifically of @_Simon_ , but others may get a kick out of the newest trend in coffee: deep fried.


Hahahaha James is awesome... like him very much. Very intriguing results he got! It's a no from me haha, but love all the things he experiments with.

Me too. Roasted four pounds of a bali blue this weekend. Looking forward to it. Went darker this time. These beans seem like they can take it. :)

Not deep fried though. Deep frying coffee has to be the most American sounding thing Ive heard in a long time.

Last night it looked like my just a bit over 2 year old hot water heater wanted my basement to be a pool...today i can happily report it was just a bade condensate pump..... whew.... also found out it is a 2 week wait, no matter the situation, for a hot water heater these days....

We recently replaced our water heater. Went with a company called Fast Water Heater. They were great... and true to their name, they were fast. It wasn't an emergency for us, and I was expecting some lead time. Called the company, they gave me a competitive bid and said they could be out the next day to install, if I wanted. I was shocked. West Coast company only, I think, but for anyone looking to get a new water heater, I was very impressed.

Alright. If anyone has tips on where to pick up a used bourbon barrel, I'm very interested in trying to do some barrel aged coffee beans. I hear good things and I'm curious.

It's a fascinating method! Never tried any but it's interesting.

@Xue Sheng, just so you know, we've been cold all this week. It was only 60F yesterday!
Today is only going to be 40-ish.
But it's already been subzero at night.

And to top things off, just have a look at this horrific sight!

Yes. That is a C4 (which is, at least, the absolute worst Corvette ever built) towing a gooseneck trailer.
