I'll bet he doesn't get too many MPG. Everyone must be sleeping in this AM Freddy, I got some cranberry nut bread loafs that I can kick in to go with the coffee.

I got some coffee from Nicaragua this AM ! :shh: :clap: Our neighbor has a second home down there, and brought us back some treats for watching their house while they are there.
Good stuff! Not overpoweringly strong, great flavor. For some reason, I just can't seem to hold my eyeballs straight, though! and its hard to type when your hands are shaking like a wind-blown leaf :lol:

Well I started reading this 'coffee ' thread on saturday morning,, but never posted.. we got around 4" of snow, and single diget night time temps. The AA just shrugs it off, doesn't seem to care,

I had a picnic lunch in the house today, I have a friend who is building a house this summer, he wanted some reassurance that the heated floor was really the way to go..

So I told him to come over, bring the wife and three kids.. I told all of them to take shoes AND sock off, and wander around.. along with the summer picnic fare of hotdogs, sloppy joe's, potato salad and frenchfries,, and the toasty warm floors, I think he was convinced that warm floors were what he'd us for heat in his new house.

Take care all.

Oh, man, you got that right. If you are building and can afford it, make it happen. If you can't afford it...find a way!
When we built our house we couldn't afford to do the whole house, nor was I quite convinced it was the way to go, but, we put the cheapest ceramic tile on earth in the kitchen, dining & bath and there we put infloor radiant heat. The rest of the house got baseboard. It all works well, but I do kind of wish we had the infloor everywhere.
