Hi Dennis,

So sorry to hear of your troubles. Keep your strength. 

I woke to some bad news this morning and I'm just sitting hear quietly with
a fresh cup, brewed in the vac pot, and it is at it's peak. What a great
flavour, aroma and mouthfeel, the only positive at this exact moment in
time. Such a simple thing as a freshly brewed cup of homeroast helps to
ground me.

John H.

hello all,
	first let me say I am sorry I have been so scarce as of late.  Real
Life intervened and came crashing down so to speak and I just roasted my
first roast in over 9 months.  Just to catch everyone up I retired from the
Navy, found the economy here worse than reported, unable to find a job, I
lost my house (the bank said "we can work with you no problem" and then kept
stalling until the foreclosure and then "sorry nothing we can do" go fig
huh?)  have had major bouts of depression, lived in a hotel for the last 7
months. Met my 19 year old daughter for the first time found out I'm a
grandfather. All while trying to go to school and work on my BFA.  and
finally after a couple hundred rental applications finally found a place to
stay... so the roaster has been in storage and roasting has been pretty low
on my list of things.  
	So with a place still filled with boxes of what I was able to grab
on the way out the door from the house I set up the RK drum and let loose
with a roast from the most generous people around (a very wonderful list
member had send me a box of greens right around the time i was hospitalized
and i never had even opened the box until yesterday)  well the roast was
seriously uneven and I had to pull out the char next to the city to get it
right but hey it might take a few roasts to get back in the swing of things
but I'll get there but for the first time today I got to taste a cup of
Homeroast since last Apr or May....   

Needless to say life post Navy has been tough as hell but a good cup of joe
might help it seem just a little better.
