Coffee 11-19-11

PostBy: Freddy On: Sat Nov 19, 2011 6:21 am

Good morning! Welcome, come in, join the crowd. Chase & Sanborn coffee is fresh & hot. There's a whole new set of M&M cups in the cupboard. Now share, not everyone can have a red one. Pancake batter is ready. Today is cook for yourself day. Line up, the griddle is hot. Don't burn 'em or you go to the back of the line!

Looks like this is Thanksgiving coffee as this coming week is turkey day. So...thank you all! Each of you makes this forum what it is....the place to be if you want to stay warm. Yet, it's much more than that. It's the place to share, the place to laugh & when need be, the place to share sorrow. Thank you each & every one for being a member.

What a busy week. Nothing special it seems, just one of those weeks you work your butt off and feel lucky you had food on the table. Life is like that, sometimes you don't seem to go forward, you just make it to a point in the future. No gain, nothing to write home about, just busy getting to the next day. Let's not forget....that's enough to smile about, enough to give thanks for.

What a great thought on this weekend before Thanksgiving. I do have a lot to be thankful about this year. I work up a little chilly this morning. Mother Nature went and lowered the temperature on me after I had set the stove and had gone to bed. I hate it when that happens. This morning I'm off to help a friend complete his Eagle Scout badge. I'm getting mulch from the county and delivering it to the where he needs it. I expect that I'll be making several trips but hope I'll be done by noon. After that I'm just going to hang around and see what comes up. I hope everyone is able to get a couple of things marked off their to do list this weekend, be safe, Lisa

Good morning all,
It has been a good year, my wife finally got out of college and her first job as a CRNA was to be in Williamsport. It was the first year in about the the last ten or so that one of us was not in college and it has been different for sure. Was a little anxious about the dreaded" Yankee winters" but with ya'lls help and support, that has been taken care of. Now I just have to find a forum about how to drive in the snow and ice!!

Good morning! Boy is it windy here...the toilet water is sloshing up and down, walls are creaking...lots of clicking coming from the basement too. :)

I am headed to Lowes to get some fiberglass insulation. I am going to add some to a few spots in the attic, and insulate my EFM. Hopefully this will cool the basement down a little.

Outstanding coffee as usual my friend. Thanx. First day of rifle season here. Hopefully, non of these NYC great white hunters will shoot any of the local horses or cows. :roll: Have a good week-end all and a happy Thanksgiving :)

Horses and cows? I'm just hoping they don't shoot ME! I'm off to take another ride through hunter infested state management area. I have all my orange plus some so hopefully, I'm not a target.

I have to get on the stick and order a new fan for my Mk I. My little rigged system was OK until now but it's starting to dip into the 30's and it's a little chilly when I get up in the morning.

Just a little coffee for me this morning, I'm not sure anything heavy will be good out on the trail and hour from now. :D

Just got back from a job hanging glass shower doors at our nieghbors house. Time to make pancakes for the kids. Looks ike Freddy beat me to it! :oops:
Been a busy week with just odds and ends. I got a carb rebuild kit for the old Wisconsin egine I am returning to working condition. The kit said it was for this carb (Zenith 161-7) but the gaskets were wayyyyy too large. I sent it back. If anyone knows how to cross reference a rebuild kit for this carb, I'd appreciate it. :cheers:

We had hard frost for past 2 days, but it'll be 70 again by Monday. Gotta like that kind of weather :clap:

I gotta' tell ya'....The Do-It Yerself panacakers was a great idea,Freddy. I'm also liking the cedar paneling you installed in the foyer-entryway to the place. It makes for a cozy start to the coffee-hut experience. Here's hoping everyone can take some time and share some love for Thanksgiving. If you've had your rear-end handed to you this year,then condolences and a shovel will come from me. The condolences are for your heart,and the shovel is for digging deep to find something small,special and somewhat warm to thank God for what you and your Family have,even in the face of massive loss and sorrow. Please be good to each other this week......signed,'Ol Florence Nightingale Hambden Bob :sick:

We were out of buttermilk this morning so we made a substitution of Blueberry Keifer for the buttermilk and we had Blueberry Keifer pancakes. We also substituted Spelt flour for standard white flour. Amazingly, the Blueberry Keifer Spelt pancakes tasted great! Would do it again for sure. The one thing that was not substituted was the requirement that they had to be fried in good old bacon grease.

That would depend a great bit on the height of the bridge & the depth & current of the stream. There is an old saying down around the Pittsburgh area "You Can Be Sure If It's Westinghouse" a very high bridge with almost nothing but railroad tracks below. :shock:

I was high enough to submerge the cell phone in my seat pack. :D Of course, the bike was upside down. :)

It was about knee deep and fairly cold, especially on a low 50* day and you're 30 minutes into a 2 hour ride. :lol:

There is a see saw set up on the bridge. It's a 14' 2"x8" over a log that you ride up one side and hopefully down the other. Or you can do the sensible thing and just ride over the bridge.

My buddy went first, made it just past the log then hopped off the side and kept going. I made it to about the same point but was going a bit faster and couldn't get turned on the narrow bridge. I almost bailed out in time. :D

The bike flipped and I went in feet first. I have my phone sitting in front of the air for the stove trying to dry it out now. Hoping just a new battery will be all it takes.
