Saturday coffee

PostBy: Freddy On: Sat Mar 28, 2009 4:20 am

Big breakfast day! Blueberry pancakes are on the stove. Off to the side are bacon, sausage, eggs & home fries. I'm not sure if this will give you plenty of energy, or just prime you to lay back and do nothing all day. Your choice!
Road trip! I'm headed south this morning with a friend. With some luck we'll be bring home two Jutol 507's and a small motorcycle. See you this evening!
Still below freezing every night, but today should be in the 50's. Out like a lamb!

Hey Freddy
You talked about 50 miles per gallion cars, I had a Renault Alliance think it was a 82 or 83 dont remember but it did get 52 MPG. What happened to those good MPG cars.

We are at 45* overnight and expecting a high of 65* today. The stove is out but not down; I'm not doing any maintenance until after April 17th - the last day for frost according to the Farmers Almanac. The Mid-Atlantic states have been known to get a late season Nor’easter in April. I can only hope. :D

Breakfast sounds great! Compared to my McDonald's alternative. Have a safe and productive trip to the South today, Lisa

Ray~ I dunno what happened to the rest of the good mileage cars but I am still mine. VW TDI @ 47 mpg.it probably would have been 50 mpg if it were a stick. Love it, only downside is that he can't haul much coal. Mike

Its raining right now, but it is warm. I closed down the FireplaceXtrordinaire for the year, and the DVC-500 is just idling, but it is keeping the house at 74-75F.
Looks like the cold weather has moved back north.
Time to crack open a new box of Post Blueberries in the Morning. :D :D :D

Looking like spring is springing :D Made it 24 hours on one hod (~18Lb) of Superior Nut. The Vigilant is humming along at 480F on the top and is just showing gray at the back corner. Have to keep tending it as long as I can because I used up my last match in November ;) Temps have been mainly in the 50's and the house in the mid 70s.

Safe trip Freddy - watch out for them mooses :)

Don't forget, freddie has back pain that doesn't allow him to sleep 12 hrs uninterrupted. He is going full speed unless asleep. I am wondering just how far south he is going too. He's 3.5 hrs northeast of the NH border, so he could be down near devil in a tank full or so. He will probably go nuts seeing no snow south of Portland and think he's in Florida! :D :D

Yeah, you have to change your own time to EST (or whatever) in your profile. Strange. I would think the post would pickup the LOCAL time from your computer's clock.

We all know that 'devil' being 'non political' for a whole weekend must be due to an intervention of some sort.
Thank you, in advance, freddie, for making the trip to save 'devil' from himself!! A couple of Jotels, yaah, right!
I was looking for an 80's Olds on Barrett-Jackson for use in the rehabilitation of 'devil'.
Don't remember the color, but a light green seems to come to mind. Any old timers remember...... back in the day....? :? :( :(

PS: Wake up and smell the coffee? It's 2100 hrs! :wtf: :drool: :eek2: :flush: :bang: :pepsi:
