Anybody roasting coffee? Well judging from how busy we are at SM, I 
would say so. Its been very busy. But I dont doubt at all that work 
is pressuring a lot of people too, and they have scaled back on the 
time they have to read emails on all of their interests... It might 
be that some people simply roast but discuss it less, once they have 
reached a certain plateau where they are happy with the results. I am 
guessing though...    Tom
