39 to a hundred, myself! :D And I really don't consider myself an
*old*lady.. except when I first wake up in the morning.. ouch! Oh, and
all of
this past winter... ;)

While I adore a great cuppa, I have become forgiving out of necessity. I
confess one of the ways to be so forgiving is by drowning the cup with -
gasp - cream. But I'm trying to go dairy-free, so that has to end.

I roast by popper & also stovetop, and my grinder is my old whirly blade
(btw, using the same grinder to grind up a supply of cinnamon is NOT a good
idea.. no amount of scrubbing will get that smell/taste out. Yeah, this is

And - we are expectly weather in the UPPER 60's this weekend here in the
Boston area - oh, woo-hoo. After the surprice vacation gifted to me by my
daughter & SIL in Puerto Rico last month... I want some 80 degree weather!!!

take care & keep roasting -


p.s. I did my best to trim the excess from this email - we should all do
this. However, gmail is making it more difficult now, for some reason. Took
me forever...
